These are the two methods I keep bouncing back and forth between.
Feel free and more relaxed
Did help cut down on binging
Lost 20 lbs doing this only half way over several months
Probably good example for 3 year old son
Not a quick fix
Don't know if it will help cholesterol, reflux, fibro - only time will tell
Hard to focus enough to fully embrace process because of busy life demands (Hello 3 year old!)
Helps with cholesterol
Felt healthy and good when I did it in the past
Hit a wall after doing for over a year in the past - couldn't stand watching everyone else eating stuff I "couldn't" have all the time
Seem to only make it a few days now before binging like crazy
(Just tried to start again eating clean again and I've gained 4 lbs back in binges)
Hard to really do because of busy life demands (He's a cute 3 year old!)
I'm sure there are more, but I'm having a major fibro fog this morning and keep losing my train of thought. Sorry.
I keep feeling pressure to eat clean because of cholesterol and just get the weight off so I can feel better NOW. Intuitive eating by definition is a slow process of redefining how you look at things and growing over time into what you're supposed to be. But then I think about how much my foot still hurts and maybe it would heal if I lose more weight faster. But I flat out can't seem to do clean eating anymore and I'm actually GAINING weight! Ugh
It's almost like mentally I think I should do clean eating, but emotionally I feel like I have to do intuitive eating. Talk about a mixed package! Nothing like a pull in two opposite directions.
It helps to write it out. Anyone on a teeter totter with me?
