Day 774: I’m In The Parking Lot Of RaceTrac

20140222-143627.jpg

I almost never post on Saturdays and I can assure you that this will be a super short post (because I’m on my way to hang out with my old roommate)!

But here’s what just happened.

{Oh wait, small background if you are just jumping in… I recently began reading and applying the principles from a book called Intuitive Eating upon realizing that I had some disordered eating issues. In a nutshell, you stop dieting altogether •STICK WITH ME• in an effort to free yourself from the cycle of bingeing.}

So, one of the things is that you get a chance to “rediscover” food, your responses to it, your likes and dislikes… instead of viewing everything through the eyes of a dieter.

Okay. Well.

I just ran into Race Trac to grab a soda and I saw all the candy lined up there and thought “Ooooo, I can have some since I’m not on a diet anymore!”

I saw a Twix bar and thought “That’s usually one of my favs…” {And then this is the kicker!} “…but they never taste as good as I think they’re going to. Meh. I think I’ll pass and wait for some reallllllly good chocolate another time.”

Holy.
Freaking.
Moly.

Can I just tell you the last time that I passed up on a candy bar because I wanted to?!?!

Uhhhhhhhhhh, yeah… NEVER.

So look. Here’s the deal. Am I perfectly healed?

No.

Am I moving in that direction?

Yes.

And basically I just wanted to write this quick blurb and encourage you- if you struggle with binge eating or compulsive eating… seriously look into this book. It might be just the thing you need.
