Ok I'm restarting "Thankful Thursdays" on the Happy Rehab Doc Facebook site! Come join us!!
For me, living in a state of gratitude does many things:
1) gets me out of my own head so I can be of better service to others
2) helps me to let go of any self pity party I was having for myself and makes me appreciate the good things in life that I miss
3) all of the above help me not to eat compulsively. Overeating and binge eating for me have nothing to do with food (as I shared here)--it is alllllllll emotional so by being thankful for what I have, I can't build resentments and I can't tell myself I "deserve" a treat.
I have found that living in gratitude has helped me lose weight more than almost any other major "dieting" technique I tried in the past!!
So join us today over on Facebook & share what you are grateful for this Thursday! Small things, big things...whatever you can share will inspire us all!
Thanks! :-) Dr. Cat
