Today I read a couple of quotes (these are from Every Woman Has an Eating Disorder – notes on a Geneen Roth Workshop) that nicely sum up what I tried to say in my post a few days ago:
If the goal of human life really is just to lose weight (or be thinner) and this is why we live our lives, we would not get to the end of our lives and leave our bodies behind.
I wasn’t suffering because I was fat; I was fat because I was suffering.
I hate it when someone is more eloquent than I am.
But this is my brilliant idea – how would you like to pig out as much as you want and not put on weight? I think I can make a fortune with this one. All I need to do is invent a time machine so you can go back and enjoy great meals from your past. The beauty is they contain NO calories because you’ve already eaten them. Pure genius!
