I'm hoping someone can offer some advice. I'm having difficulty in being consistent in my nutrition goals. It seems like I do really well for a number of days, then it's like I just "go off the rails" and have a day or two when I overeat. I've also noticed that some of my nervous eating has gotten worse since I've been trying to post and respond on the message boards and teams. I used to just use the nutrition tracker, but I found I needed some support and encouragement from others so I started being more interactive in the SP community..
But it's like my social anxiety is rearing it's ugly head when I'm on SP, too. Anytime I interact with people I get stressed out - I thought it was mostly just when I was with them in person, but apparently, I'm also afraid of saying the wrong things and being judged in the "virtual" world of SparkPeople, as well. I tell myself I'm no longer going to worry about what others think, but my good intentions don't last. It's so ingrained in me!!! Or maybe I'm just using this as an excuse.
How do you stay on track in the midst of high anxiety?
