The book I'm reading at the moment, "This Year I Will...", says that I have begun the process of learning if I start to notice times that I am failing while they are occurring and not after the fact.
So that means that when I overate last year and the years before at Thanksgiving through past New Years, I had not yet started the learning process. This year, when I am overeating and noticing it as I overeating - and yet still don't feel able to or don't want to quit - then I have entered the first stage of learning because I'm aware.
I guess that's progress. But at the moment, I don't care enough to make myself not reach for the Nutella or Whopper Jr. I am trying to make sure that I (at least partly) have smaller portions of my temptation foods and pause between servings or grazings. But I'm fairly certain that my apathy is gonna cost me on the scale again this holiday season.
Well, at least I know how to eat without feeling to guilty. And how to work it off after the holidays.
