Shit. It’s one of those days where it doesn’t matter what happens around me or what my mind decides to do or not do… I just want to eat. I need to eat. After 31 years I still think it is strange how a person can consciously know they are full AND still listen to that devilish voice that says “go eat … now” – “or else”.
I need your help!
I’ve read so many books from Geneen Roth and Brene Brown and articles about the chemistry of the brain and plasticity and blah, blah, blah. Some how, it never gets easier for me!
Okay, here is where I have an internal debate silently with myself. Because it HAS gotten better over the last three years. I used to eat all day long. I would be hysterical if I didn’t have the latest craving being shoved down my throat. And I would spend so much money to the point where it would be really hard to pay bills on time. I’m addicted.
Nowadays. I gave really bad days, bad days and semi-good days. I cannot remember the last time I went any entire day without binge eating or eating my emotions. I’m not sure where to go from here. I feel defeated.
Does anyone have recommendations for resources or exercises to try?
