Lexie's Journal

Lexie struggles with her weight but is learning how to trust her body again with Am I Hungry?

Lexie's Follow-up
Posted on 04/22/2011 @ 9:39 AM

I'm writing after a long absence because one of the Am I Hungry? Facilitators, Jeff Butts, has asked me to come to one of his workshops to talk to the group and share my Am I Hungry? experiences. They wanted to hear how I have successfully used these concepts. I'm very excited to be able to share my journey with them so I thought I'd share here too. I've lost 70 pounds now and 5 pants sizes. I breathe easier, I move easier, and I feel "off" when I don't exercise. Exercise is either the pool, the treadmill, dancing, and lately I've added "easy" park hikes and geocaching. I have to be careful about hikes because of my vertigo and I always have a chair handy when I dance in case I need to grab on and get my balance back. I am amazed at how much of Am I Hungry? has become second nature...habit. I don't have to work at it all the time or think about it all the time. I'm truly becoming an instinctive eater and I couldn't be happier about it. I sometimes still struggle with trying to be perfect, but I'm light-years from where I was. People at work have noticed the weight loss and my increased energy. They ask, and I share. I think for so many people it seems just "too easy" so it's hard for them to believe it's possible. If it came with a pill or rules they'd be lining up by the millions to buy it because that's what our culture has been trained to believe. Or maybe when they say it's "too easy to work," they really mean "It's too hard to change." But I am living, thriving proof that it IS possible! Thank you for Am I Hungry?! Lexie
