Taking back control
I thought a lot about this last night and am taking some of your advice…. I’ve decided that a 30 day NO PLAN challenge starts today. This means that there will be no weight watchers, no calorie counting, and no other diet plan. At some point in my life I must learn to follow my hunger signals. I have totally let food (an object) take over my power and I need it back. I think diet plans are great for other people who don’t rebel against them…. that person is not me. For the last 13 years I have used excuse after excuse to not follow what my body needs and at this point I don’t know how, but that’s what I need to learn. If after 30 days I cannot stand another day of intuitive eating, then I can fall back to the same old patterns. These patterns have been comforting to me in some way, even though they’re bittersweet. I will have to take it day by day and it won’t be easy.
I was reading another blog and the topic was binge eating disorder. Apparently it is now the #1 eating disorder in America. For those of us who haven’t struggled with an eating disorder, they can be really hard to understand. I read a quote in Life without Ed and it sums eating disorders up perfectly.”From the outside, we can’t understand it. From the inside, we can’t explain it.” This is SO true.
My goals for today:
1. Intuitive eating
2.No hitting up the bins at internship
