Today I listened to a podcast about self-correcting. And there was a great point made about the fact that when we overeat, this is the real deprivation.
It's so true!
I've been in this severe period of overeating and binging. I've reverted back to this awful coping mechanism because my life is overwhelming and stressful right now.
But what I feel and know is that every night, I go to bed feeling more overwhelmed and stressed by the fact that I've binged. And every morning I wake feeling sick to my tummy and exhausted from not sleeping well. Then I go through the day in a fog.
So I'm depriving myself of reducing my stress, of getting a good night's sleep, of having the most energy possible to face the day.
What's more, I'm depriving myself of feeling self-confident, of being hungry for meals, of enjoying my meals, of wanting to eat with my family (I generally lose it around 4PM and then I can't eat dinner because I'm too stuffed), of fitting into the clothes I love, and on and on.
It's back to the starting line for me. Self-correcting commences now and it's time to stop depriving myself and start on the path of health again.
