Pat Barone

Since I first started on Twitter I had the good fortune to Twitter-Meet PatBarone. Although I doubt we will agree on everything, especially because I count calories and I don't think Pat does, I do believe she has an wonderful insight to our problems with food.

Today I visited her BLOG where Pat talks about that child in us. I recommend reading the entry. "We All Have to be a Parent Sometime!"

Pat is a professional and a celebrity in her field, I feel that the more light we can shed on this problem the more we can help others. NO ONE UNDERSTANDS this problem except a person who actually has lots of weight to lose and has done it!

This is my personal commentary on her entry.

I agree with Pat, childhood emotions will always come up. Every minute of our formidable years were filled with fear, sadness, loss, frustration, PAIN and much more. For those that think they didn't experience any of those emotions they are only fooling themselves. Unless an adult helped to soothe those feelings, the immature mind most likely had no idea how to deal with them. More likely an adult said "quit your whining, stop crying or worse. Many times a kid is given a cookie or candy to get them to stop and behave.
As an adult anything can trigger those childhood emotions. What is the solution?
Step One (imo) Remember you are the adult now and YOU can give that child the reassurance it needs. You KNOW as an adult that you are very capable so give your child an imaginary hug, love it up... tell your inner child that you can protect her/him .

Help your child it will never leave you it is YOU. Do it, because for can do anything!
