It's been a long time since I sat and watched the fabulous Oprah. I have her shows tivoed and I go through and delete the ones I am not interested in and save the ones I may get round to watching. Well yesterday twitter was all a buzz about this particular show on No More Dieting. Oprah's guest was author Geneen Roth who wrote this book called WOMEN FOOD AND GOD. ( I raced to Barnes & Noble this morning) anyway the show moved me to an epiphany about my struggles with weight and food. It got me to begin thinking about this from a different place. So I am going to give up dieting and read this book a couple of times and let its words wash over me. I am exhausted with this dieting mess. I am exhausted striving for some ideal size. This is not a new thought process for me. I have moments of great clarity and then I will get sucked into this ridiculous diet ride because someone will say something to trigger my feelings about it, and off I go chasing some new diet plan. UUghhh.
I want to fall in love...real love. The first steps is falling in love with me. So I am stopping all the madness. I am ending the hatred. Oh yes, I know, I blogged this before and time and time again I buy that ticket and ride that diet ride over and over. Well for the time being I am getting off and moving in an entirely new direction.
I know that I am on the right path. I can feel it. Since I've been blogging I can see my evolution. I have grown and overcome a great deal and that means something in the universe. There are more blessings to be had. More joy to experience and more love to be made. I am opening myself up to moving in an entirely new direction.
