I didn’t understand that normal people didn’t eat an entire package of Oreos in one sitting all the damn time.
I felt out of control, and like everyone was different than I was. And they were just a little.
The biggest difference between me and the normal people was that I coped with life using food, and they lived life and dealt with how they felt not using food.
This episode talks about why our search for normal is focused in the wrong place.
Focusing on normal habits first is such a huge help. But the big issue I see is women want to change it All at once. This doesn’t work. Trying to change a lifetime of habits all at the same time is a recipe for disaster.
This is like my 16 year old “loving the idea” of taking extra classes in high school. She did it! She got special approval to take an extra class. But she also changed from Brick and Mortar school to Online school this year.
Within a week, she was overwhelmed and she withdrew.
This is what we do with weight loss. We try to change all the habits because we “love the idea” of being that healthy person, but within a week we quit.
So let’s take a look at the idea of “normal”, and see how we can move slowly to coping without using food, and how we can do it in a way that we don’t suddenly feel helpless a week into the process.
