Stick to the diet and it will work but beyond that you are really going to have to reflect on yourself and want to change because otherwise when things get tough you will just fall back to your old habits.
Good luck with your restart, and we are all here for help as you need.
So well said! I really do need to take the time and try to change my relationship with food. A friend recommended a book called "Life without Ed" and it basically talks about going through a divorce with an eating disorder. She said it was helpful to her as a binge eater. I really should find the time to read it!!
Well, Saturday ended up being a bad day start. That night, I found out that a friend died in a car accident and the next morning, I had to take my husband to the ER and he was admitted to the hospital. Talk about stress!!! So, I was bad Sunday, but I'm trying again today. Thanks for all of the support!
