Reflection – Weight loss exercise 11


Your relationship to food is a reflection of your relationship to yourself. If you deny yourself your own path, your own longing, your own dramas, your own life force, your own truth, then you’ll be tempted to live a life of fantasy, to live vicariously through those who allow themselves to live theirs.

Commit to yourself as God has committed to you. Forgive those who tried to block your truth. You aren’t grasping for food, you are grasping for love, for God, for living your own truth.

Ask yourself, “What are your thoughts?” This question causes you to show you care about your thoughts, that you value them. If you don’t listen to yourself, you can’t honor yourself. When you overeat, you show a lack of mercy for yourself.

A healthy person is always dreaming up the next best thing. Thus, learn to listen to yourself. Dialogue about your true thoughts and true dreams in your daily journal.
