A Little Taste

I'm trying really hard to practice my Intuitive Eating skills. The one part of this journey that gives me some trouble is not labeling any foods off limits.

As I said earlier I have some food around that it tempting me for some reason. Maybe it's because I'm subconsiously telling myself that I shouldn't have it. I decided to have a peice of each food that I was thinking about. I figured this might prevent a binge later on.

I took 4 cheetos, 2 chips, and 2 small cookies. I took my time eating each one trying to savor it. I really think that helped me today.

I'm not sure why certain days I can be in the house with tons of junk food and not think twice about it, but today it was just calling my name.

I have to be honest. I think that my biggest road block in my recovery is that I truly want to be thinner more than anything. I think this stops me from progressing. I keep trying different methods and nothing seems to work for me.

I even started working out this week after 3 months off. I'm up about 3-4lbs! I'm sorry for the rant but just feeling frustrated here.

Has anyone else out there struggled with binge eating and how were you able to recover?
