Weighting for Grown Ups

Weighting for Grown Ups

When I quit drinking and smoking 7 years ago, my weight ballooned, and I grimaced at the cliché. Last summer I ended a lifelong love affair with pop, but that sugar was replaced with increased bedtime binges on chocolate. My initial success entering post-secondary in 2012 transformed into dropped classes and taking a year off. After 25 years of counseling for addictions, depression and a mood disorder, a recent diagnosis and treatment for Borderline Personality Disorder nailed these down as manifestations of a core desire to be taken care of, stemming from parental abandonment in childhood. It also indicated that my obesity may be related to carrying the weight of that absence. I’m going to share with you how I’ll use that as a tangible marker to integrate my therapy through structures that I have developed, but previously failed with, as I complete my degree in Native Studies with Honors.
