I have had weight "issues" most of my life. Of course I've tried every diet and therapy under the sun, but stop short of any 12-step program, cause I'm not a subscriber to the theory that an entity of any sort is out there watching everything I do, and if I'd only "give myself over to my higher power" that my issues would be solved.
I had a thought the other day, and intend to pursue it further: my life is good. I have always listened to my inner voice, and it has taken me to interesting and informative places. I've been blessed in lots of ways. So if my "higher power" has taken care of every other aspect of my life, why should I think it would abandon me regarding my weight?
Maybe I'm supposed to be overweight! Maybe the world will suddenly fold, and all the skinny people will die, while I manage to hold on, without food of any kind, for 6 months! Or, maybe my life lessons will come to me through being heavy, with all the social implications. Anyway, as I say, I'm going to pursue this, and see what happens.
