I had a horrible weekend as far as my eating was concerned. I didn’t do major diet damage, but I was definitely not the perfect OA member. Not even close.
I went searching for a sponsor last week and found one, though it seemed a bit tentative. She wanted to monitor my progress through an orientation loop, so I started cc’ing her on my responses. She has been really sweet and responsive.
Sunday afternoon I tried to nap to stop myself from eating, but all I did was cry. I finally sent her an email and she responded with some very insightful thoughts and helpful words of encouragement. I am so grateful for her part in my attempts at recovery.
When I stop focusing on food I am able to focus on other things, which is pretty amazing. I am trying to be more creative, and to honor my creative process.
I’m trying to stop and enjoy life – smell the roses, take time to talk with friends, really listen to my body and my heart and my mind. This week has been much better already – I am a creative powerhouse!
