There is no point in even trying to lose weight until you decide you want to be closer to people. Anytime you are disconnected from love, you are prey to the delusion that you are hungry. What you defend against, you create. A recovering sufferer can recognize a sufferer, and a recovering sufferer intent on healing makes sure no sufferer in her path remains unloved. It is often just a knowing smile or a silent blessing, but it is love from heaven for you both.
