counseling

Friday, December 09, 2016

I am too start counseling for about the 4th time on Monday, I prefer to talk to someone that is not connected to me as I find it easier, friends would listen to me but I don't like to burden friends too much as they are already very good to me.

I really will have to take control of my weight before it gets out of hand, I have been comfort eating and put on about 8 pounds, I am still doing as much exercise as I can but having to fit it around several other things at the moment.

    That the benefit of counselors: they have no stake in your progress, so can be objective. It's a great idea!

    So pleased that you're going to have counselling, I hope it can give you the help you need. Don't worry about those 8 lbs, you've lost them before & once you get yourself in a good place, you will lose them again.

    Counselling is a wonderful idea. Better than talking to your friends in lots of ways, as you can talk about things that won't be brought up in random conversation again, nor will it every be used against you should a friend suddenly fall out with you. I saw a counsellor for a while about 10 years ago, she was very helpful.
    Good luck and I really hope that it helps you a lot.

    I'm glad that you have someone that you are more at ease to talk to. Try to determine what the counselor says that you can do to help. Spark people tells us to start with small steps. Can you find some small steps that you can do because being faithful to doing the small steps will give your progress. SP has helped me in some other areas of my life besides the weight loss and eating better areas. I am feeling better about making progress in de-cluttering my home and life. :)
