Time is a funny thing, when you’re a kid, or in pain, or alone, it seems to drag on forever. However, if you’re juggling a full-time job, a part-time job, three twelve-step meetings a week, planning a trip, a bridal shower, AND a wedding like I am, time seems to slip through your fingers like wet soap in the shower!
I’m sorry I haven’t posted sooner, but once I get used to my new schedule I hope to be back to updating the blog regularly once again. That said, do you know what day it is? It is the first of the month and that means weigh-in time! But before I get to that, it’s also my daughter’s birthday! She turned 30 today! Where did the time go?! She was my precious little angel face a moment ago, and now she’s this incredibly talented, kind, loving young woman! I love her more than an endless supply of Nutella!
Speaking of Nutella, guess who hasn’t had any since the epic binge to end all binges two months ago? Moi! Honest to goodness, the Twelve-Step program has been an answer to prayer! Not only is the weight dropping off, but my mental and emotional state around food has never been better. I heard a saying at one of the meetings last week that really hit home… “You come for the vanity, but you stay for the sanity.”
The structure may be rigid, but it’s really helping. My favourite part of the program is the early morning meditation followed by 30-minutes of quiet time. It helps me to slow things down and spend time with God (my Higher Power). The practice is teaching me to live ONE DAY AT A TIME, which is keeping me sane with all of life’s demands. In the past, burying my head in the fridge was my go to for comfort, and I’ve got to say, I like the view out here a lot better!
