I posted this on the Intuitive Eating board, but I realized this was a general thought I had:
Hello all, I hope you had a Happy Thanksgiving and enjoyed your time with your friends, family and yourselves.
I have always noticed that when I "feel fat" I examine everything else in my life as a negative. When I am feeling fat, then I don't feel pretty, I don't think I'm good enough, I start comparing my career choices to other people, blah blah blah...
But when I feel "skinny" I feel like I can take on the world! The day looks bright, everyone is on my side, etc etc.
Why can't I just be a person, and not fat or thin? And how is that how I feel with regards to weight determines my mood so much.
