I've decided that as far as I can remember, I did NOT binge before sparkpeople.
I'm not saying sparkpeople caused the binging, in fact I'm healthier than I've ever been and I owe 100% of that to sparkpeople. But all the calorie counting I think has made me a little *ahem* crazy.
I talk about it a lot, and I take it so seriously. I tried once before for intuitive eating and it didn't work, but I don't think I gave myself a real chance. One month after a year of tracking calories is not a realistic goal.
I'm stopping the calorie counting. When I do count I'm always under anyhow. I need to relax and enjoy some treats. I think the binge is from feeling deprived even if I won't admit it. Add that to some emotional eating and you get a binge.
Time to give intuitive eating another chance.
