I had an "aha moment" about weight maintenance while watching The Walking Dead (of all things). A character who was in denial about how dangerous the walkers (zombies) are was playing with a walker. My husband said something about this character being stupid and I said that maybe she was so tired of being afraid that she just wanted the inevitable (death) to happen already so she wouldn't have to be afraid anymore.
Ever since I reached my goal weight a few weeks ago I have been struggling with how to transition into maintenance and not gain the weight back. I have even developed a scary pattern of binge eating several times a week.
Could I be subconsciously trying to end my fear of regaining the weight by binge eating which will (I know) cause weight gain? Because if it happens, then I don't have to be afraid of it anymore.
