Mental Illness comes in varying degrees, but addiction and the Victim Syndrome may cause the biggest hit to our self-belief.
It’s about to get REAL for me. Yes, I have been here many times – experiencing short-term success in diet and weight management. Reality dictates I have to self-reflect, be honest, and go deeper to make life-long changes – body, mind, and spirit.
My inner victim would have me point back to childhood experiences and make connections to painful, emotionally scarring moments at the dinner table. I have volumes that I could share that would validate my inner victim!
Instead, I have decided to silence my inner victim. I admit that my problem is deeper than just overeating. So here it is: If I go unchecked, I will binge eat, without purging. Why? Because it feeds my inner victim.
Until 7 days ago, I fixated on food as though it was an idol. As I have experienced this cleanse, I am gaining strength to take on my inner victim. If I don’t, once I successfully completed the 10-Day Smoothie Cleanse, I would gradually slip back to obsessing over food.
The battle is day-by-day. I know this because I have tried to take it on in the past only to lose in the end. Each fight left me more determined to give up, until now.
