this has got to be for good

Friday, June 29, 2012

I read the featured blog entry from the member who strayed from her eating goals, and it made me reflect on some positive changes I have noticed in my eating habits. These are huge changes for an almost lifetime binge eater like me. In the past, every time I strayed from my planned eating I would revert to unregulated overeating. I would feel guilty and think what the heck, I will wait until things are "better" to get back on track. Of course that resulted in my old binge eating, lots of unhappiness, and big weight gains. This time I have decided to not feel guilty about going off track; just get back as soon as possible without guilt and beating myself up. It works! I thoroughly enjoyed eating all my nostalgic favorites when I went back home to family recently, and had the added challenge of it not being a happy visit because it had to do with the death of my parents. Eating my family favorites was comforting to me, and with my new guilt-free attitude I actually was able to limit my portions a lot better than in the past. I feel liberated and optimistic. It will not be easy to reach my goal weight, but I truly feel I will do it this time.

    What a great attitude. Learning to control binge eating is going to be the key for you it sounds like.

Keep Sparking
