One day at a time.
Amen, and again it's important to understand what one needs to get out of life. Fortunately I'm not plagued with alarming health issues such as diabetes, blood pressure, or have genetic health issues on the horizon. YET! My weight has provided me with plenty of chronic pain and mobility issues and so it's not possible to do extreme exercise anymore, ever probably. But like I said before, my whole purpose is to have a pleasant relationship with food and I'm ok being overweight as long as I don't binge, or harass myself with negative thoughts about any kind of food.

I've spent too long thinking about "trigger foods." Well, everything is a trigger food lol. I can't worry about what one food will lead me to do, or how one taste of something will cause havoc or whatnot. I see too many people fall into that cycle of restricing-losing-failing-weightgain to follow suit.

"Binging is a descent into a world where every restriction... is cut loose. At its core is a feeling of deprivation.. a feeling you can never get enough. Binges do not signify a lack of willpower or inability to care for yourself. On the contrary, binges are a urgent attempt to care for yourself when you feel uncared for. They are the voice of survival. Binges are the mark of the self that says, 'I am tired of feeling deprived, of being told I am wrong, that I am bad." - Geneen Roth
