I’m Ba-ack!

Hello, All:

Hoping that this is the beginning of a new batch of posts.  Since I started this project, back in March of 2012, I am happy, thankful, and grateful to report that I am still abstinent, I’m back on my exercise routine, and I have lost another 15 pounds!  That’s a grand total of 90 pounds!  Thank you, H.P.!!  But the best part of all is the clarity of mind that continues to grow.  Although I am certain that this happens “one day at a time,” for me, at least, it feels more like it comes in waves.  A few months ago, I was feeling overwhelmed by all the “new” character defects that seemed to be coming out of the woodwork, and all the 12-Step Work that I could foresee that went along with them.  But I just kept forcing my mind, sometimes minute by minute, back to the positives, back to my Higher Power, and continued to do, to the best of my ability, “the next right thing.”  And then it passed.  Now I’m feeling ready to face these new challenges.  In all my years in and out of recovery, I have never stayed abstinent from my urge to binge long enough to reap the benefits of having all of this work start to infuse the rest of my life.  My life beyond food.  Did I ever really have a life beyond food?  Sometimes I wonder.  Physically, yes.  Of course I did.  But mentally?…  If all of my waking hours were spent obsessing about either eating or not eating (depending upon where I was on the dieting spectrum), doesn’t that mean that is all that my life was about?

Aren’t we all just really what we think?

Just a little “food for thought.”

Stay tuned…
