Releasing the invisible weight

Losing this weight has be a serious journey, not just a physical one either. It has been a emotional and mental journey. Many of us carry with us an invisible weight. One that keeps us in the refrigerator trying to eat away the pain of the past traumatic events.   I realize that even if I change my physically habits, that mentally I can still be where I was. Yes I was over weight because I ate too much but why  was I eating.

Addressing that question is the beginning of healing wounds that have been open for over 20 years. I have no doubt that I may lose a  few people along the way. I am however done carrying the burdens of old. Wrongs that were not my own and protecting secrets that unearth the Mr. Hyde's lurking around.  20 years of weight that I smothered myself with, over 100lbs of weight. 

As I release my self of this weight I can only imagine what many of you are holding onto. Many times we think that we must suffer in silence to protect others. In the long run, you are suffering and  those you protect  are living.  As you make external changes, you will  soon find a desire to make internal changes. When  you make positive  internal changes, your external life will reflect the positivity you are encompassing.

Today I am free all of the weight , that was holding me down. Light as a feather........

Did you write this post just for me? I totally needed to hear this. I've hit a plateau and I have a feeling that until I get out of this head space that isn't going to change. I've been wondering if I need to talk it out with someone, some therapy maybe. This post helps.
