I need help....

Monday, April 13, 2015

I'm ashamed to admit it but I need serious help. I constantly overeat and I can't control it! Every time I ear something I tell myself I won't over eat but I end up doing it anyway. It's like I can't help it. I make myself sick sometimes. I don't know what to do... I thought I could handle it on my own but apparently not. At least tonight's dinner was chicken and vegetables. Any advice??

    Put in effort to eat slower! I know that when I start eating pizza if I am occupied with something else I can eat nearly 5-6 slices without even realizing it. Mostly because I am just eating so quickly that I don't start feeling full until slice 6 ( and then I feel like I might pop like a balloon). But if I make a conscious effort to eat slower and really focus on my food, I find that eating more than 2 pieces makes me feel stuffed.

    And try to not think about food. I know that when I mentally get stuck on food and it is all I think about I will mostly likely end up having a huge binge. So if I am sitting on the couch and find my mind is thinking about food (rather than my stomach growling) I will immediately try to focus my mind on something else! Getting up and doing something is the best way for me.

    It is so easy to want to give up because you had a bad day or a bad few days. But don't. Lose the mindset that you have to be perfect. You are wonderful and you are beautiful and there are going to be days that you want to consume whole pizzas or three plates of food. And that is ok because it doesn't define you or your journey. When you have a day like that don't think of the next day as starting over. Because that implies that you failed. And you absolutely did NOT fail. You just had an off day and we all have those. It takes strength to say " I am not going to let this get to me. I am going to learn from it, I am going to move on and I am not going to dwell on it". So don't think because you have an off day that you are weak. BECAUSE YOU ARE STRONG, YOU ARE BEAUTIFUL AND YOU CAN DO THIS!!!

    Keep yourself busy. Read a book or paint your nails or go for a walk when you feel the urge to overeat. I sometimes clean my kitchen and mop the kitchen floor so I'm not tempted to go in there.
