Net Negative Consequence

Hi Brooke,

I walk for 30-40 minutes every morning, on a treadmill before work, or outside on the weekend’s when the weather is good.
This feels like an addiction to me…that I have to walk. I get anxious when I don’t.

The reason I walk is to for my mental and physical health (I feel great and energized after I walk! Ready to start my day), but if I’m really honest with myself, I also do it to help prevent me from gaining weight. I have always been thin and staying thin has always been important to me.

There have been times when I’m away with my husband that I don’t walk in the morning, but it’s rare. When I don’t walk I feel anxious and overly cautious about what I eat.

Do you think walking every day has a Net-Negative Consequence for me?
