As I lose the weight the emotions can be so "in my face". Which is new for me, a once cooked food emotional eater. I know that it is wonderful that this healing is taking place, freeing myself from so much inner turmoil. While I was eating the cooked food I wasn't even aware of all these emotions and patterns. I was making myself comfortably numb. It is good that I am finally looking at all of this instead of hiding behind food and old patterns. I can let go and just be.
