I used to weigh myself daily, sometimes more than 6-7 times a day. It would start with restlessness, grow into anticipation, and, somehow I thought stepping on the scale was going to solve it. At least I would “know” if I was okay or not, worthy or not. It determined the course of my day, or my hour, and certainly my mood. I never expected it to get so out of control. I just wanted confirmation that I was okay or would be somehow. Yet, the magical number always eluded me. Working with Sarahjoy freed me from my scale and from the restlessness and anxiety that had compelled me to weigh myself so often, looking for an answer to a question I hadn’t even considered asking myself. (And that couldn’t be answered by the scale).
What are my deeper hungers? How can I nourish those hungers?
