Hey connect

This is just a suggestion, but I noticed that you said earlier that you have had a lot of stress in your life. After a period of trauma, I noticed too that my weight gain became impossible to shift despite watching what I ate, and I also sank into depression. I came to the conclusion that after a great emotional trauma, this is the normal reaction of the body, to go into a down, as I had read somewhere that emotional or psychic healing always takes presidence over physical healing and this is what I found in myself. It is important to nourish the body during this time, but we will be disappointed if we expect to see results from what we are doing to happen at the usual pace. The process of healing takes its own time but we can help things by not beating ourselves up and by getting emotional support from somewhere. We are to put ourselves in intensive care, not by ignoring ourselves but by really paying attention and giving ourselves the care that we probably have neglected to do. Guilt about thinking that we are being selfish will only delay healing.

This is what I have done, and now I can feel that my body is starting to recover and the weight is going down (but very slowly). Acceptance is the key.

Brenda,

Thank you so much for that kind post.  I, too believe that we must heal our mental/psychic selves before any physical healing can occur.

Thanks for reminding me of this important principle!

I also have struggled w/ depression.  Interesting to think it may be the birth control pills.  My ND suggested  reading the book where ever you go there you are by Jon Kubat-Zinn.  Has anyone read this?  Whould you reccomend it?  
No one said anything about thyroid problems. Is that a possibility?

Jon Kabat-Zinn is fantastic.  He's a good introduction to mindfulness and to really accepting life.  I would certainly recommend anything he has written.  Kabat-Zinn will help you with finding a state of mind that is more peaceful and more accepting.  

Really a good read for those suffering depression.
