Regarding this journey, "Perfect" isn't in my vocab. It's more of knowing that setbacks and binges are going to happen, but preparing for how I will spring back. Trying to be perfect is too stressful and the last time I tried that, it translated into 'all or nothing'.
I think we all do this: We try to tell ourselves after a binge that it'll never happen again, and we've learned our lessons, but then a few days, weeks, or months later, there we are again crying on the panic room floor because we've binged and feel defeated.
It's not about preventing it from ever happening again. For me at least, it's not about if it ever happens again, it's about WHEN. I know that they are still going to happen. Hell, I took a week off last week from the gym, and my eating suffered. I ended up eating over 4000 calories yesterday. Am I going to give up? no.
This isn't all or nothing. It's about making sure that there is more time spread out between these incidents, learning from them, and jumping back on it with determination.
Don't ever let anyone else tell you who you can be
