Hi Paula, I am realigning my diet after a binge fest last week. I went up 10-11, down 5 in 2 days of somewhat clean eating. As a binger, who yo-yos on the scale, I have realized I may binge eat off an on for the rest of my life. That I have to practice EXTREME self care in order to not head back into sugar addiction, bingeland. And that I am gaining one thing I never had before, MINDFULNESS. At least I know when I am binging, that I need to realign with my spirit, that I need to experiment to figure out what is going on with my mind that is leading to this.
I know we will learn more about coping and ourselves, it may take a while to get our weights down, but we will have battled many a demon and can meet them head on.
I don't know about you, but something about this area of weight around 225-230 is creating a barrier for me. I am going for a check in with my therapist this afternoon and may do some digging into my feelings around this weight. I sabotage every time I almost get under 220, and also again at around 205. I need to spend some time with it.
I know you'll figure it out. Until then, eat some shit that you love.
