I consider myself to be on the healthy side. But I am an emotional eater. Before logging in my daily calories with Spark people, I probably ate about 3 to 4 thousand calories a day. My weaknesses are cookies, donuts, and cake. Also anything with a high fat content like avocados and peanut butter. I have beat myself up about giving into temptation since I was 14 years old. I punish myself for binge eating under stress or boredom. Negative self talk has become the norm for me. I never thought I would be such a negative person. I would never treat anyone else the way that I treat myself sometimes.
I have been doing the SparkPeople a lot in the last two weeks and I have seen a major difference in my energy level and attitude. I feel happier and stronger. I have "messed up" and gone over my calories several times now, but I try not to beat myself up, because I still need to give myself credit for actually logging in my donuts as oppose to giving up.
How can I be kinder to myself after spending so many years aiming for the unrealistic goal of perfection??
