Today I am focusing on HEALTH! I finished reading Geneen Roth's WOMEN FOOD AND GOD. I picked up her book well before I saw her on Oprah...which just added to my sense of being on the right path. I am joining her and thousands of others in giving up this dieting shit.
I gathered all the books I have bought over the years on dieting and eating. I stacked them on my dining room table and I sat and stared at them. I needed to see how much time and money I have invested on deprivation, chaos, desperation and shame. Let me tell you I could have gone around the world several times over on the money I spent on those books. Not time for regret or shame. I am done with that. I am not dieting ever again. I have had it. I will however, workout and move this body with love and care.
So here's the Eating Plan:
THE EATING GUIDELINES
when you are hungry.
sitting down in a calm environment.
without distractions. Distractions include radio, television, newspapers, books, intense or anxiety-producing conversations or music.
what your body wants.
until you are satisfied.
(with the intention of being) in full view of others.
with enjoyment, gusto and pleasure.

All this week I am laying out my life plan. I am moving in an Entirely New Direction (E.N.D). Direction that I chart and implement on my own terms. I will not and cannot be moved or swayed with illusory promises of something better. I am the something better.
