Default Forgiveness and Weight Loss; Grudge an Weight Gain.

Ever since I started seeing a therapist and now that I'm on antidepressants, I noticed a pattern of feeling better with people, especially those I used to hold a grudge against.
I remember instances that when I *only* think about my sister, whom I used to *hate* I would get angry at the mere thought of her. Now we are close again, we do things together etc. She is just ONE example on a long list. I'm a chief grudge holder and I wonder if the weight would be falling off this way if I were still keeping all that poisonous negativity in my body.
I know this whole topic is embedded in the emotional eating context, but I wanted to know if in your case too, becoming more forgiving (and forgetful) has contributed in making your emotional and physical weight lighter.
This is also my personal shout out to those who are where I used to be:
LET IT GO NOT BECAUSE PEOPLE DESERVE IT, BUT BECAUSE YOU NEED PEACE.
(THE PEACE YOU NEED IN ORDER TO LOSE WEIGHT AND BE HEALTHY).
Do not overlook the impact of that factor on your emotions and therefore your diet.
