I have to admit: this is my first healthy dinner in a couple days. The past week my eating was not good, and it was 100% stress related. I blame only myself for this, no one forced me to eat all the cookies and ice cream 🙂 I just had some tough personal/family stuff going on, but much of it is better now thankfully.
Anyways, I’m trying to get back in the saddle with treating my body and spirit better. Having weeks like this shows me that even if I fall down I just need to get back up and keep sticking with my healing program. Hopefully in time I’ll handle stress and anxiety better and not eat to soothe my feelings as much.
Honestly all bingeing does is make a bad situation even worse! Because on top of feeling stressed out, I then also feel guilty, ashamed, bloated and sick. Using junk food to try and feel better is simply not a good solution.
I just have to give myself grace and love because this bingeing and overeating to soothe my feelings is an old habit and way of coping. When I’m in the moment and feeling bad it’s an easy way to try and feel better but man it sure has a lot of negative consequences for me.
Luckily today was better, I didn’t binge which is awesome. I’m just taking things one meal and one day at a time. Progress not perfection 🙂
