Awareness? Crucial for Weight Loss. Crucial for Life.

So I really don’t want to waste time going over the whole “awareness is the first step” garbage, (even though it is). Really what needs to be said, is that once you recognize you have difficulty overcoming a problem, you should immediately seek out a therapist, and get to work. To go the conventional route of trying everything everyone else has tried without pulling up the roots of the underlying reason you’re misbehaving in the first place, is just a huge mistake, and a self-imposed maze of confusion and misdirection.

Can’t we teach in school that it is okay, and expected, that we will have areas in our lives that we SUCK AT. And then teach us the warning sign,s and then show us where in our phone to put our therapist on speed dial. Yes I’m being dramatic, but I think it hits fairly close to home, right? Humility and self awareness are great partners. And every time we openly acknowledge our shortcomings, we let those around us breathe a sigh of “oh thank God, I’m not the only one.”

Just get off your own back, stop thinking you’re going to be strong enough to overcome every weakness on your own, and get some help SOLVING AND ELIMINATING PROBLEMS!!

Whew!!!! what a rant.

And remember…Every Ounce Counts!
