I just wanted to say “thank you” for you podcast- it’s truly exceptional and helpful in a way that I have not yet encountered in my struggle. Although I have never been “fat”, my weight has yo-yoed about 25 pounds fairly often in my past 10 years. I’ve tried all sorts of diets, and always knew that the problem was emotional and intrinsic, and binging was just the expression of that emotional weakness. Since listening to your podcast in the past few weeks, I’ve lost 7 pounds, and rather easily, at that.
I attribute this weight loss to really looking inside myself, and determining the cause of the weight gain- you had discussed something in your podcast that I was not conscious of, but once you said it, I knew without a doubt, that this was my main issue- I was intentionally taking myself out of “the market” to ensure fidelity. What a crazy thing to do- but it makes perfect sense. And then I was developing what I call “fat rage” - when, as a fat woman, you feel easily threatened by other more attractive, slender women, and I found myself thinking bitchy, mean thoughts. I honestly did not like the person I was becoming.
Anyway, thank you. I’m back on the path to feeling more like myself again- physically, and mentally.
Your podcast is refreshing, and I have to admit that I am quite a skeptic about self-help type media. So I feel that you’ve struck a major coup in winning me over.
Thank you, thank you, thank you.
