If you have a habit that is no good for you in one way but good for you in another, you’ve got trouble. If this habit has become an integral part of your daily repertoire, you’re in big trouble. You guessed it. The subject is weight and the kind of eating that makes you gain to the point of being way overweight.
One thing you can expect. When you start to change your habit of eating too much food or eating too many calorie-rich foods that are keeping you in the overweight big leagues, you will most likely feel worse before you feel better. What you’ve been avoiding or defending against by eating the way you have been you will now be uncovering and having to face. As you no longer avoid or defend against and you confront and acknowledge and develop new ways, you will be leaving that awful initial “what have I gotten myself into” feeling behind.
