Well, it's been several months now since I've embraced clean eating again. I've been thinking about how vulnerable I feel sometimes and how I've used food to numb my feelings when I'm upset about something. It feels so uncomfortable sometimes to just sit with the feeling. Sometimes it feels "ominous" as though something bad will happen if I don't binge. I think it's just that I have to learn healthy eating habits, and it's going to take some time for me to learn new coping strategies for when I'm feeling upset/sad/lonely, and want to turn to food. I feel determined to continue on this journey, and think I'm worth it, though. That is a step in the right direction!
