I don’t have the best willpower. To be honest, it’s probably pretty abysmal. Sometimes, I “overeat” to the point of sickness – and I’m sad to say this happens at least once a week.
However, the worse is the day after, or even hours after. The self-talk that begins in my head from the moment I realize I’ve overeaten too much is much worse than the feeling itself.
I start thinking things like, “how can I work this off? How long do I need to go on the arc trainer for? How little can I eat tomorrow? Maybe I should just give up carbohydrates for a week. I wonder if this fat burning supplement is on sale. Should I just eat more in an attempt to forget that it happened? I mean, I went off the deep end already, might as well keep going…”
I kid you not. I think these things, at least once a day, if not more. I get anxious thinking about eating out, even with friends, and making a poor choice or overeating. I get anxious when I start to get hungry because I fear the onset of these judgments/thoughts. It’s a constant struggle for equilibrium that I’ve had for many, many years.
So, my question is for you, readers –
Have you any of you shared these thoughts? What did you do about them?
