A couple a months ago I came across and article in the paper about a course on the philosophy of weight. Afterwards I made contact with the coordinator and requested to join the next group. It was a lengthy process, with a detailed written request, followed by a one on one interview to see if I was a good candidate. Fortunately I made the cut, the Course lasts for ten months and began just before Christmas. We meet once a week for two hours, with 12 women and each with our own story it makes for a very interesting evening. But I must admit it's going to be a great deal of hard work and much soul searching, but hopefully it will lead to some peace of mind once and for all. These first few sessions have been very difficult, as being open and sharing do not come easy for me. I like to pretend all is well and I have everything under control. Last year I stumbled into therapy; just by chance and strange enough it came just at a crucial time when I needed it most. Call it Karma or whatever but I find it funny how this Course spoke to me right off the top and I just knew it was something I had to do, and again it comes at a time when I need it most. This is part of Resolution 2013 and "action kinder" learning self acceptance and finally affirming that I am worthy.
