I just wanted to say hi and tell you that even though I've been away from SP for the past several months (bogged down with work and stress) I am looking forward to ending the mighty-year-of-challenges that has plagued me this past year and start fresh soon... I may be still a bit scarce around here for the next little while but I did want to let you know that I've been thinking of you and hope you are doing well in life, in happiness, and in your journey. 1274 days ago
My b'day was the 26th. Are we both Libras?
I am so praying that you will be spared the decades of misery I felt over eating and my body. I can't say much more right how but know when you are trying to defeat bingeing, having a range of calories to stay in has been shown to cause later bingeing. Bingers are often asked to track food and feelings, but not permanently. It is so hard to track and not have an upper limit, but habit theory supports not having one. I have not tracked calories or even meal content for nearly three years, but I did commit to keeping to a certain number of meals on weekdays nearly three years ago. If you must track, track behaviors. It is not quite the same as tracking calories.
These are just my gentle suggestions. I am on your side for PEACE and CONTENTMENT, which are always available in the moment, whereas the "perfect" body and "perfect" eating ar often so caged by expectation that they are rarely available. Do not confuse these with capitulation. 1396 days ago
