Hi Sharon! I saw your post on living binge free. It looks we have the same pattern..do well for a while and then fall completely off the wagon...I am adding you as a friend because I think we can help each other!
“The only way that we can live, is if we grow. The only way that we can grow is if we change. The only way that we can change is if we learn. The only way we can learn is if we are exposed. And the only way that we can become exposed is if we throw ourselves out into the open. Do it. Throw yourself.”
So, our challenge this week is to do it and throw ourselves into the open so we can grow and live our healthier new lifestyle and enjoy the ride! Have a fantabulous new week!
LIVING BINGE FREE WELCOME Welcome to Living Binge Free where we concentrate on developing a permanently sane relationship with food rather than just on weight loss. A person can lose weight in some very inflexible, unsustainable ways that promote fear of food, implying that it is more powerful than we are. She can have a honeymoon phase, thinking it's all done, and get KO'd when it's over, The odds are against beating your self into being satisfied with less food by forcing yourself to eat far fewer calories than you're used to. Better to take a year or two to feed ourselves reasonably and consistently with more and more quality food and less and less modern refined ones so that we can tolerate and weaken urges to binge, knowing we are not starving or punishing ourselves and don't need extra food. We learn to eat in moderate amounts any foods that continue to give us pleasure before, during, and after we eat them, some of them in very moderate frequency, and let drop the ones that don't. Please check out our threads and jump in! WELCOME WELCOME WELCOME
I know this is heresy on Spark, but I have not tracked for over 4 years. I do have a relatively routine way of eating and rarely snack, so I am not having to try to remember random eating. I am also committed to allowing appropriate hunger to develop between my meals. I prefer this kind of attention to writing down all my food. I believe if there were more support for this, there would be more compliance and more success.
Good morning and Happy Hump Day! So glad to hear that you liked the visit with the quotes. I find it motivating to me as well! Today's quote is by Les Brown:
“Accept responsibility for your life. Know that it is you who will get you where you want to go, no one else.”
Too many people like to blame someone else for everything so I find this a good quote to remind us that it is us who is responsible for how our life goes. Have a Happy Hump Day and a Wonderful Wednesday making the choices you need to achieve your goals!
