Therapy goals

Yesterday I went to therapy in the morning and to the GP in the afternoon. The GP says I have a virus so I'm taking ginger tea and looking forward to getting better! When I'm feeling better I can do some more exercise, start to get in shape again.
Right now I'm watching star trek and my headache is getting better thank goodness!

My therapy goal for the next few weeks is to keep a stable weight. I seem to have hit a plateau so that shouldn't be too hard.

My homework for the week is to think about what my life would be like if I were not always thinking about food. I can't imagine for the life of me why it would be a good thing! All I know for sure is that it takes a conscious effort to stop from getting enormous! I'd like that to be a natural and easy process. I think I can bring myself to write about that.

I'd also like exercise and work to be far less difficult. To be able to focus on the moment instead of being distracted by self-doubt and self-loathing. That would be wonderful!

I'll think more about it over the next few days.

W, from my perspective you're one of the last people in the world who merits self-loathing. You're bright and interesting and a fighter, and you're kind. But I know that self-loathing isn't something one can just change one's mind about. So I hope you'll be able to work through this with your therapist's help.

I wonder if, as the self-loathing diminishes, exercise and work and weight control will become easier and more natural.
