Ever since I was a child I can remember being preoccupied with food. Other kids would be enthralled with there arts and crafts and and I would be wondering when the next snack was coming. Grocery store outings with mom meant I could choose what was going in the cart. Not at all exaggerating I sought out opportunities to eat. My siblings still remember to this day how I would strategically move all the oreos and fruit roll ups to the top shelf of the pantry so they couldn’t reach.
Something I’ve become overtly aware of is the lack of connection I have felt within my body. I am actively shifting that because I’ve learned first hand the less attention I give my body, the less connection I feel overall.
