My mini goal, everyday, is to think normal about food, to get to a place where it's NOT a focus all the time and not something that is my foe!
I use to eat intuitively up until about 10 years ago. Put on a few pounds back then and the dieting began! This caused me to have "diet mind" and everything went down hill from there. I forgot what true hunger is, when I was full and when to eat only when I was hunger and only what I wanted to eat.
"Diet Mind" set me up to restrictions, time limits, eating when I really wasn't hungry, and eating foods just to eat and not because it was something I truly wanted.
I am now a binger and very sad to be this way! It's a long road ahead away from this ED and my relationship with food and I understand that eating like this for 10 years will not disappear in days so I'm patient and mindful of everything I am doing to get through and pass these eating issues.
