Where ever you draw the line you then wish you had more from that point. Wishing mind will arrive at the door. And if you say well you can have all this than it is the next thing that is wanted. You love what is needed, or what you feel is needed.
When I weighed 165 I was still wanting more, the line was just drawn in a different place and I felt less comfortable physically than I do now at 140. Now at 140 I still want more than where the line is drawn I am just lighter.
What I am trying to say is if you are going to suffer from wanting mind why not also get to be thin? I mean either way you are going to suffer and have to look beyond the line you have drawn. Why not also get to enjoy all the nice things you get with thinness. Social benefits, physical benefits, according to a some study white women earn more if they are thinner (apparently that did not apply so much if you were a man or even a woman of color) – how annoying!!
One advantage I have is that I realize (at least on some level) that just because you lost weight does not mean you’re done thinking about it. That is how all that weight just sneaks right back on. You turn your back on yourself. Right now my lifestyle has changed slightly so I am not biking to work these days. It is one small change after another then the ball begins to slow in its rolling.
So the point is we all draw the line somewhere. How do we keep finding where the line works best at the moment and keep checking in with yourself as your life changes?
