    I don't mean to criticize Tabbyarts, but Sparkpeople forbids any tagging or passing on of "chain" letters or comments. A notice on this was sent out a few months ago when people were putting "Beautiful Woman" awards on comment pages and asking members to pass it on.

    I was a lit major, too! We readers and writers can have a hard time being active, but a good, vigorous walk can do wonders.

    If tracking food is too hard, consider for a bit tracking how much you spend on eating food not on your eating plan. It can help you see you do have the money for eating good food, although if you're living on chocolate bars from the dollar store, real groceries can't compete!. This from experience. I find eating my three meals on most days and greatly decreasing my bingeing has cut down my grocery bill way down. emoticon

    I see that you are on some meditation teams. I won't say that sitting solved my eating problems, but I did find that when I decided to make moderate eating my goal, I was finally able to apply some of what I had leaned about mindfulness and our thinking to food issues. I had tried for years, but until I was scared enough, I wasn't able to do it. When I really feared living another few decades bingeing, I took many lessons from previous study to heart.

    Everything doesn't get easy when you do that, but some things get easier! Look into your meditation practice and see how much we run the same thoughts that bring us pain. Resolve to forgive yourself for being human, for letting the thoughts affect you so much, and for eating in response to them. But also resolve to experiment with examining the body sensations when resisting the mental "orders" to get food and the resulting thoughts of unfairness, sorrow, frustration, and anxiety. Admit to yourself that when you give your attention to the sensations, they first of all are not so terrible and second of all, they change. In fact, it can be hard to chase them down! Then give yourself permission to purposely divert yourself to what you are doing presently, or to planning something productive or pleasurable to do with your time.

    I don't know if it is attributed to the Buddha or the Dalai Lama, but remember this : "You can explore the universe, looking for somebody who is more deserving of your love and affection than you are yourself, and you will not find that person anywhere." Be compassionate with your judgement of your body and your judgement of your failures to achieve that body. Adore yourself for even being caught in the prison of your mind. It is all absolutely okay! If you can align yourself for even a few seconds each day with your consciousness of your thoughts and sensations rather than with the thoughts and sensations themselves, you will have begun the process of freedom. And not just freedom from food. I am so excited for you and your unfolding! I pray that you surrender to this so that you are spared the decades of misery I went through about my body, if possible.
