FP4H has a whole-life kind of approach. The goal is to get all the aspects of me healthy: my mind, my soul, my strength and my heart. Think of it as mental, spiritual, physical and emotional wellness.
I had mentioned giving Overeaters Anonymous (OA) a try (which I want to go into detail later), but I was having a hard time with their program. I kept feeling like a lot of my eating issues were just symptoms of spiritual and emotional sicknesses. I was trying to address the root issues, but I kept feeling like the OA laser focus on eating issues was getting in the way.
So I’m trying out FP4H, and I’m excited that I get to do it with ladies that I know from my church! There’s about 15 of us (from my church and other churches as well as online). We were measured and weighed on Monday. I weighed in at 216, and I was once again hit with disappointment in myself. But at least I’m pursuing help and health!
I’ve already found myself in need of a careful attitude check. I love to learn, but sometimes I can get stubborn and convinced myself that I already know everything. I’ve learned a lot in the past couple years about eating healthy and exercising, but I need to empty myself and come to my meetings with a humble spirit.
