Perfectionism... leading to all or nothing on eating or exercise. I have struggled so much with this for so many years. For me, I do think a big part of it is perfectionism. But when I think more about it, and am honest with myself, perhaps I overeat when I have made a mistake because I really want to eat whatever I want to and not think about it. Spark people to the rescue! This program has helped me so much to break out of old habits. It really does work to take two steps forward when you fall back one. I heard once that if you fell down in the mud you wouldn't stay there and roll around in it. I know when I let one poor eating choice send me down a dark spiral of out of control eating I'm really rolling around in that mud! I feel so much better accepting the fact that i will sometimes make a mistake. And really... do I truly want to eat whatever I feel like at a given moment? Nope, I don't . I'm moving forward and feeling fantastic! GO JUDY!!!
