I’m thrilled to have made to the next to top Zen place for today’s show. Glad too, I brought more than one water bottle as it is HOT, even in the shade.
I mourn actor and comedian Robin Williams and ponder my own experience with depression. I decide to let go of feeling repsonsible for what happens to other people. For example, I felt I was disappointing you on Day 67 by not being thinner. But after exploring my issues with the diet/binge cycle further I realize I need to be true to myself and continue on with Intuitive Eating. I’m super excited when Brave Companion Cathi from Connecticut calls the bravery hotline during her own walk to share her take on intuitive eating and how she really feels about my journey. Brave companions Amy and Sue also post encouraging comments on Day 67. I really appreciate the support and it helps me look deeper. Welcome to new listeners Sandra and Suz who both post on Day 4, to Diane, a Body for Life champion, who posts several places to share her feelings and to support Crystal and others. Also welcome to new listeners and brave companions from Facebook, Fionna, who has a wonderful blog herself, and to Lisa, a successful loser and maintainer, who has made a decision to try intuitive eating herself. Many of our brave companions are good examples of why we can’t assume people’s relationship with food by their size.
Digging through my drawers prior to hiking, I’m THRILLED to discover I still have an old ToonaCat’s Kids Club shirt from my old website. Come on, TC, it’s just you and me kid!
You can see my silhouette here at the bottom of the path. Look how hot it is for 7:30 am!
The one shady tree at the bottom of the path. Unfortunately, I’m not stopping here.
