Real Life means that you aren't always perfect, at least to me it does. I posted last about being in a really good place with my relationship to food. That is still true, but it doesn't mean that things don't creep back in on some days.
I tend to get these "diet" thoughts every now and then. I hear about someone on some "diet" and I kinda get hooked into the idea and it ends up making me eat emotionally, or binge. In my head I start thinking about going on a "diet" and it makes me feel deprived just thinking about it. I imagine not being able to eat certain foods such as sugar anymore and I end up eating them more and obsessing over food even more!
I admit, that I catch myself and recover much sooner than in the past so, that is something I'm so proud of.
I talked with a blogger friend last night through email regarding her take on eating sugar and binging and I just wanted to share a post from her blog that I thought was very helpful to me.
http://www.christieinge.com/intuitive-eating-sugar/ _ Christie is awesome!
I realize that for me sugar tends to be a problem. I love Christie's idea of a food mood journal! I plan on keeping one for myself to really get to the bottom of my issues with sugar. Christie reminded me that part of Intuitive Eating is to really listen to your body for EVERYTHING! I don't know why I forgot that the same goes when figuring out how I feel when eating sugar.
I can't go by so and so who is following a carb free, sugar free way off living....that might be good for so and so, but I have to find my own way. Thanks again Christie!
