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?
