I still need to do some thinking on resolutions, but I think they might be:
1. Get this binge eating disorder under control once and for all (35 days binge free and counting...
2. At a minimum, maintain my current weight. The treatment I am getting for binge eating is designed to break the binge cycle, not to lose weight, so I am not committing to losing weight. However, I am committed to maintaining where I am for now until it is ok for me to start thinking about weight loss again.
3. Continue to improve my health through exercise and by addressing medical issues head-on rather than worrying about them. I neglected my body for so long and feared going to the doctor because I didn't want to hear him tell me about the problems that obesity was causing, and I was afraid of finding out about illnesses - as if not knowing about them keeps me from having them
. I got a mammogram and am now dealing with multiple growths on my thyroid (scared about this one), and have an appointment to get some moles checked out. I also commit to a full physical next year.
4. Focus on my personal life. I don't have one right now, really. Too much of a workaholic, too shy, and too busy. But excuses have to stop. I want to make some friends, take up some activities, possibly do some MeetUp events and - gasp - think about online dating. I have no idea how to go about any of these things, but it is time for some balance in my life. I will be asking forum members for advice on this resolution!
