Thanks for sharing... I read your blog post and can relate to a ton of what you said! I think we all have our own little "epiphanies" from time to time. It is funny how often it can seem like something so simple and obvious is such a profound thing to discover about yourself.
I know what you mean about the emotional eating and about eating when you feel fat. I definitely struggle with staying on plan when the scale is moving the wrong way and I start feeling sorry for myself.
And I totally get what you mean when you say that your fat is a buffer for the outside world and that being fat can be blamed for everything. I totally fall into this category of thinking. I have hidden behind this buffer for far too long and used it as an excuse to not try anything... used it as an excuse when really I am just running from my fears of failure, and oddly, fears of success. So I get it...
Keep up with your journal. It will help you.
