#unfiltered morning check in with coach @derock240. I’m am just about 5 weeks post show. My weight is sitting around 188 fasted. Of course, we always want to show just pictures of being shredded, but without getting softer and adding in food, you will not grow! If your goal is to just maintain, that’s fine, but I really do want size added for the next time I compete. I have “failed” and learned before its essential to grow slow and steady. If it’s too fast and I decide to crush everything in sight food wise, way too much body fat is added onto my frame too quickly, which can lead to an unsuccessful grow season. Everyone is different, but I have to keep myself in check. There is a plan and I am going to trust the process. @loudperformancetraining #teamloud #overeatersanonymous #healthandwellnesscoach #worktheplan #checkins #mensphysique #bodybuilding #persistencepaysoff #goals #thankful #happylife #blessed #christfollower #christian #faith

We made it to Mexico! This time last summer I was 30 lbs heavier. I didn’t feel comfortable in a bikini and I took about 5 pictures of myself the entire summer. This year, thanks to God and OA my compulsion to binge eat is manageable, I’m exercising everyday for my health not to make up for my bingeing and I feel confident in a bikini. #overeatersanonymous #oa #bingefree #bedrecovery #mexico #progressnotperfection #weightlossjourney #weightlossprogress #vacation #bingefreevacation

Beets were one of those foods that I used to yuck at all the time. These days.... oh my god girl!!! Cold beet salads, smoked salmon, a steamy cup of bone broth, a big old smoothie bowl with paleo granola, or a cold bottle of NingXia.... my heart beats faster!!! 😂 Who knew being an adult was so cool!? Haha... Really though. Food is medicine for this lady and learning how to remove, edit, and add different foods has been a game changer for my health. .

I heard this while doing @sarahfinds meditation Practicing Gentle Kindness Towards Ourselves. I listened to it while sitting in the airport waiting for my flight and I ever so casually put my hand on my heart and whispered those 3 magic words: I love you. It felt like God was speaking them directly into my heart. Despite all my failures and shortcomings, regardless of all my strengths and achievements I am loved. What a gift that is. #overeatersanonymous #oa #meditation #iloveyou #selfcare #selflove #god #affirmations #higherpower

Make Shakshuka for the first time tonight and it was SO GOOD! 🍳 Shakshuka is a traditional North African/Middle Eastern dish. #swipeleft⬅️ for the recipe I loosely followed (obviously not served with NMF). I used jarred roasted red peppers, onion, garlic and marinara sauce. .
I measured out about 8 oz of the veg/sauce and added 4 oz zucchini and yellow squash, with 2 of the eggs poached in the sauce. I figured that was my 10 oz veg + 2 oz freebie marinara. Topped with 1 oz feta. Delish and full of flavor! Easy recipe too (if I didn't have the kids "needing" me every two seconds)! 😂

The Big Book tells me that we are like those rescued from a sinking ship. We have in common the peril of compulsive over eating and the common solution found in the 12 steps. That provides a bond different from any I have experienced before. Many of these people I would have rejected as being too good for me or not good enough. I’m grateful that I saw the treasure of friendship and that God open my heart to receive it - Voices of Recovery, April 17 #overeatersanonymous #oa #recovery #12steps #eatingdisorder #bulimia #anorexia #bingeeating #compulsiveovereater #glendora #claremont #sangabrielvalley #upland #duarte #rancho #inlandempire

THIS IS SO TRUE. Usually when I was in restriction to lose weight and I didn’t see results (either on the scale or on my body) I would give up and just binge. Because why try if I’m not seeing results??? But that’s the key to recovery, you have to make these healthy changes in order to rewire your brain away from depending on binges. You need TIME and every small step away from binge eating is a battle won in this huge war. Stay strong everyone ❤️ Quote taken from @fatgirlfedup

I have been thinking a lot lately about what my life was like this time last year. I was at my peak weight, 30 lbs heavier than I am now. I had finished 2 months of following Whole 30 but had relapsed into a cycle of bingeing and self-loathing and put back on all the weight I’d lost plus more.
I felt gross in a bathing suit and deleted all the pictures that were taken of me. I felt, ashamed, lost and hopeless.
I don’t recall the exact chain of events that brought me to OA and eventually recovery but I am incredibly grateful for the turn my life has taken in the last year. Thank you God and OA.

Eating out is such a social thing & the old me would have ordered a bowl of creamy pasta with a garlic bread for a stater plus a cheesecake for desert!
I was overeating and always felt sick, full, bloated and beat myself up for it. Guilt Cycle on replay... New me makes healthier choices- so much easier to maintain this lifestyle, to burn fat and still enjoy dining socially with friends just doing it the smart way now!

Today marks 9 months sugar and flour free and "adios" to 67.8 lbs! 🎉
.
🌫️️Starting: 253.3 lbs, sizes 22/24 2-3X.
Feeling heavy and uncomfortable in my body, tired all the time, extremely self conscious, afraid my habits were starting to catch up with me health-wise.
.
☀️Current: 185.5 lbs, sizes 12/14, M-L.
Feeling free from food addiction, light and nimble, full of energy, confident my lifestyle changes will get me to goal weight, and at peace with my food and my choices.
.
(I'm 5'9". Although I used to be 5'10"...anyone else shrinking height-wise as they age?!) 😂 About 20 more pounds to goal weight, I think. At least for now!
.
I'm forever grateful that the book, Bright Line Eating by Susan Peirce Thompson @brightlineeating, came into my life almost a year ago. And I continue to be grateful for this amazing and supportive Instagram community! 💓

Rice pudding for breakfast sure doesn't look like much, but it's so tasty! Glad to have this back in rotation. (Recipe from @katie.bright.lines) 6 oz mashed banana, 4 oz cooked rice (I use brown rice), 1.5 oz peanut butter, 2 oz milk, and cinnamon. I also added a splash of vanilla. Prepped for the week and warmed up each morning. Yum!

WEIGH IN after a week long vacation! 140 lbs!! I haven’t seen that number in like a year. I didn’t binge at all on vacation which I’m proud of but I also didn’t let myself live. I would say I was restricting but I wasn’t depriving myself if that makes sense. Anyway 10 more pounds till my ultimate goal weight!!!

Let me first say that OA is not a diet and calories club. It’s a program focused on spiritual, emotional and physical recovery from compulsive eating and compulsive food behaviours.
That said, the physical recovery I have found since become binge free and alcohol free are pretty astounding. I did not have abs like this when I was training for Ironman 15-25 hours a week and bingeing like crazy. I didn’t even have abs like this when I was exercising like crazy in preparation for my wedding because I was caught in a cycle of restricting and bingeing.
I have told people in meetings that I think God gave me the physical recovery first because he knows how vain I am and he wants me to stay in the program so that I can work on the spiritual and emotional recovery too. Well God, it’s working because I am committed to my abstinence 100%

My family got Wendy’s and it smells so good OMG. I just have a cup of water that I’m chugging. I wish I could eat some but I know that if I do I will go into a binge spiral. I know I’m not strong enough yet. My ultimate goal in this journey is intuitive eating as that seems to be the solution for people who have dealt with BED in their life.

Lunch with a view today as I took a break from the opening of my art/tech exhibit in a local history museum! An exciting but tiring day. 20 minutes away was what I needed! 10 oz asparagus and grilled balsamic eggplant, zucchini and red peppers, 4 oz turkey burger, 1/2 oz cheddar, 1 oz olives and 6 oz Rainier cherries.

It wasn’t until I went to my first OA meeting that I realized that I wasn’t the only one who hid food, binged in secret, overexercised out of guilt and shame, attempted to restrict but ultimately binged and generally hated myself for my failure to be thin. Going to meetings introduced me not only to a group of people who had experienced what I had but to people who had found a way through the shame, regret and self-loathing of compulsive over eating and we’re living abstinent happy lives. I realized that I have a disease and that could only be arrested by surrendering to God and working the 12 steps.
OA has taught me to change the things I look at. OA taught me that I’m powerless over food. But that’s okay. Because I have a higher power working in my life that loves me and wants to restore me to sanity if I am willing to surrender my will to Him. Before OA I knew that God loved me but I always thought that he was ashamed of my secret binging. I never thought that admitting this failure to him would bring relief. But it did. When I got honest with myself and God he gave me a plan of action to get and stay abstinent. It hasn’t been easy; the compulsion to restrict, overeat, over exercise and crave control is still there. But it’s manageable when I work the OA tools of Recovery everyday. For me those tools are checking in with my sponsor, following a plan of eating, prayer and meditation, reading OA literature and writing about my recovery. Without me knowing it the things I look at in my life have changed. My mindset, my spiritual and emotional health and my physical health have all been restored as a result of living binge-free and sober through OA. If you had of told me a year ago that this is where my life would be right now I would have never believed you. This is what I always dreamed about but never thought would actually come true. Thank you OA!!

I see people posting photos for #facetofacefriday and I always see them and think that there is no way my face has changed that much. I’ve only lost 30 lbs (22 lbs through OA). But a few days ago someone saw a picture of me on my parents fridge and said that she didn’t even recognize me. So I scrolled through my phone and found this picture (I have so few photos of me from my heavier days). Putting them side by side I can’t believe the difference. The picture on the left was taken before I did my first Whole 30 I can’t believe how swollen my face looks 🤢. I have always said that being gluten-free, dairy-free and binge-free has been beneficial to my physical health: I have better skin, my belly is less bloated and now I know that my face is less swollen too. What these pictures don’t show is the emotional health I have gained since joining Overeaters Anonymous and finally being able to give up my bingeing and food addiction. Don’t get me wrong, the physical transformation feels great, but the gift of lessening my obsession with food and my compulsion to overeat; that has been the greatest gift of all. #overeatersanonymous #oa #weightlossjourney #weightlossprogress #bingeeatingdisorder #recovery #whole30 #glutenfree #dairyfree #bingefree

The two things I never thought I'd see at the #OCFair a #salad and the #overeatersanonymous group. No, I will never make fun of them. They were the nicest people with the greatest stories. To face that level of temptation in an attempt to help others with an #eatingdisorder is beyond commendable. #eatingdisorderrecovery #respect #samosays

It feels a bit fraudulent to post this but I’ve been binge-free for 5 months now. My abstinence has certainly not been perfect over these 5 months, especially lately, but I haven’t had any of my trigger foods or any out of control binges since I started in OA.
Before OA I knew that I had trigger foods and trigger emotions/situations but I didn’t know about my compulsive food behaviours. These have proven much harder to get a handle on.
My compulsive food behaviours include:
- snacking while making dinner (and then still eating dinner even though I’m already full) - skipping meals
- eating a second helping of food at a meal despite being full
- weighing myself daily
- snacking between meals
- sneaking food and eating in secret
- over exercising to make up for bingeing.

I still very much struggle with the willingness to give up these behaviours but it’s something I’ve been honest with my sponsor about and that I want to internationally work on. When I talked to my sponsor a few days ago it got me thinking that the reason I have had so much trouble letting these behaviours go is because I don’t want to. I am seeing that in order to continue on my journey towards recovery I need to pray for the willingness to let go of these behaviours. As the serenity prayer suggestions, I need the courage to change the things I can (in this case myself).

Don’t get me wrong, I’m all about treating yourself and self love. But for me, I used “treat yourself” as a justification to have a treat every day. This “treat” turned into a habit as I would automatically reach for ice cream after dinner, regardless if I was hungry or not. With it happening everyday, it no longer becomes a “treat”. Treats are supposed to be occasional and they lose that satisfaction when it becomes habit. At the peak of my binge eating disorder I could find ANY excuse to eat something. And my binges were NOT a treat even though it felt like it in the moment. As I slowly recover, I’m trying to find more non-food rewards and ways of treating myself. Manicure, new shirt? Leave suggestions!😊

My meditation practice is just that - a practice. I don't do it as often as I'd like, but when I do, I really notice a difference. 🌄 This is one of my favorite morning meditations and coming back to it this morning after many months, reminded me how much I love this one. In just 10 minutes, I'm starting my morning with intention and gratitude. 💓 I use the Insight Timer app (free!) and love the plethora of options it offers. Anyone else use this app? Have any favorites??

I have binge eating disorder and although I struggle majorly with binges, I also struggle with restricting. Still on vacation and I freaked out that my parents wanted to go out to dinner because I’ve been doing really well eating healthy so far and I didn’t want to be tempted out at a restaurant. So I made my own food and fucking brought it to the restaurant 😂😂 it wasn’t a big deal I just pretended to split a meal with my mom but eat out of my Tupperware I brought. While I was able to prevent any binges by doing this, this is NO way to live your life and my goal is to eventually be able to go out to eat like a normal person. Maybe next time...

I struggle with food. You might not believe it. From the outside, I probably look like I have it together. The thing is, I know what's healthy and not. But I struggle with emotional, stress eating. It's secretive and guilt-filled.

For me it seems from a lot of things. It has to do with how alone and sad I FELT growing up even though it was usually just my negative perception.

My family loves to cook and eat together. Plenty of southern comfort cooking along with my emotions added up to me developing copping behaviors of emotional overeating. "I have some CLEAR memories present in my mind and heart today that surround my attitude about food and eating. Example--a family member once asked my cousin ""How did you ever make it into our family? You're so skinny!"" Which I took as, I'm so fat! And that's what I FELT like too!" I ate entire bags of chips when I was a young teenager. Maybe bc I was bored. Maybe bc I liked them. But I'm sure bc I was filling a void.

I ate to feel full inside. Sometimes do still. But I have strategies now that I WISH I had then. I WISH I could go back and tell the little girl that it would be okay and that I didn't have to do that to myself.

Instead of wishing to changing the past, now I'm changing my now and my future. And I want to help you too!

If you struggle with food too and struggle with emotional or stress eating, I'd love to help you conquer it. I have 5 spots left in my success group. It's been life-changing!! Totally worth the journey!

Drop an emoji to show me you're ready to get the strategies to overcome overeating. 😘👭

My son who is 3 saw this picture and exclaimed “mom you are so happy” that really made me think about how right he was, I am so happy. My weight held me back from so much.

Do you love your body? .

As a fitness coach and part-time massage therapist, I see nearly naked bodies on a daily basis.
I can honestly say, there has NEVER been a time I've said, "Ewwwwww." (It's possible I thought it, but only if there's a smell attached or a fungus involved ;) ) .

It breaks my heart to see people judging their bodies in a negative way. And, honestly, I'm "guilty" of it as well.

My camera is always set up during my workout and sometimes it takes random pictures...like the ones you see here.

It's pretty easy to look at those pictures and think, "DELETE!!!" .

As a fitness coach and massage therapist - bodies are my gig. It's what I DO. I work with them and see them every day. In shape, out of shape, running marathons, hiking up mountains, sitting on the couch - they are beautiful. In every way.

I've had clients and challengers say, "Please don't judge my fat rolls." What?! I've heard people say, "I wouldn't be comfortable getting a massage until I've lost some weight." What?! Bodies are beautiful. Period. And when *I* look at you, I don't see the imperfections. I see the bravery and vulnerability in allowing another woman REALLY see you - and THAT is a beautiful thing. .

It almost shames me to admit that while I am completely comfortable telling YOU how amazing YOUR body is, I am the worst critic of my own.

It can be a very sticky place to be.

While I'm spouting off body love and awareness (and I DO love my body) while in the same breath talking about being fit and strong and getting a six pack..... .

I'm constantly working to find a balance between loving my body no matter what and wanting the 6 pack... I don't know that I'll ever find that balance and not feel guilt in wanting my body to be a different shape. But I DO know that I will continue to strive to have that balance. .

And I know that the body I have today is much easier to love than the body I had 8 years ago and 100lbs heavier. Sure, partly because of the PHYSICAL shape of my body (if I'm being completely transparent) but also because of the MENTAL shift I've made while WORKING on my physical body.

Today, I promise to love my body - no matter what. Can you?

We were in a rush in the morning and I wasn’t able to prepare my avocado so I grabbed it and had to eat it like an animal 😂 But I was just thinking about how my binge eating disorder isn’t like most who struggle with it. I feel like most people have a binge/restrict cycle that’s “short”. What I mean is that they will binge one day and then restrict the next, or binge one meal and then restrict the next. But my binges are very extended. I’ll binge for weeks or months straight, and then restrict for weeks or months straight. Is this normal? Like I’ll literally binge for a straight month and then restrict the next month without having any binge slip ups that particular month. I know this is terrible for my body but I have no idea why I do this

Last night I made 8 goals for today to help me get back on track. I’m grateful that I was able to meet my goals and I feel a million times better body, mind and spirit tonight. This program has taught me to take things one day at a time so I’m going to set similar goals for tomorrow.
1) morning meditation
2) workout
3) moderate breakfast, lunch and dinner
4) prayer for willingness to let HP lead me where I’m meant to go.

I've never shared this before, but this sentiment right here is how I started Bright Line Eating @brightlineeating. I had read the book and marinated on it for a couple of months. It put so much into perspective for me. It was like all these different things from my past were suddenly put into place one day while I stood there in the shower sobbing. Looking back now, that moment was the turning point for me. It was like an out of body experience, like the universe leading me to a new path. Everyone's story is different... sometimes it's a singular moment, sometimes it's a slow whispering process. It doesn't matter how it looks for you, just that you believe you can do it - you ARE capable of changing your life. 💓💓💓

You don’t need to be on the up ‘n up with astrology to feel all the major shifts in the cosmos right now (google away, it’s A LOT). These changes are pushing old wounds to the surface so that we may heal and grow. As this occurs there certainly will be days where we feel like utter crap and cry and cry some more and want to lay on the floor with our cat or dog or seal, hummingbirds or miniature pony (I wish on the last 3). Or binge after work on our fav Netflix series and do nothing else. This is fine. This is growth. When you allow these feelings to surface and stop repressing them with “Happy Hour” cocktails or stuffing them down acting like “all is cool”....you are healing. Does it suck sometimes? Is it hard? Fu*k Yes, it certainly is. But you will come out the other end wiser, stronger and kinder. Love yourself deeply as you grow and heal. It’s temporary (well, until the next growth spurt ☺️) worth it and for our highest good. Say “no” when your want to stay home. You don’t need to put on a mask for anyone. Do YOU ❤️

Kids slept over at grandma's last night, so I hoped to have a relaxing quiet breakfast. Instead, I took the opportunity to sleep in! I thought I had enough time to still prep a hot breakfast and enjoy it at the table, but alas, I ended up eating in the car again. Such a bad habit! Either way, breakfast was a yummy change of pace.

Сегодня удивительно хороший день. Я ни разу не переедала, купалась и половину дня копалась в огороде, отвлекаясь от еды и безделья.
Сказочно.

#nsv time!!! I finally went and got fitted for a real bra. No more fat girl, wireless, shapeless, uni-boob creating bras for me. I chose to wear those kind of bras because I couldn't stand having my boobs in my chin and that's where any normal bra put them. Plus, I was so wide in the chest that anything other than a sports bra or other elastic style bra made me look ridiculous. I haven't gone down in cup sizes which I'm pretty disappointed about, but I did go from a 42 to a 36. Holy. Shit. I am over the 🌒 right now 😍

It's that time again 💉 Donation number 3... Proud to say that since I started donating I haven't missed an available donation. Did you know that women can only donate every 16 weeks as it takes our iron levels longer to regenerate... If you can donate, then please do, it saves lives ❤️ @givebloodnhs #Manchester #BloodDonation #Proud #APositive #Blood #OA #OvereatersAnonymous #12Steps #EatingDisorderRecovery #BingeEatingRecovery #OverEatingRecovery #OneMealAtATime #OneDayAtATime #FoodDiary #SW #SlimmingWorld #SlimmingWorldJourney #SlimmingWorldDiary #SlimmingWorldMotivation #SlimmingWorldMafia #SlimmingWorldFamily #2018 #weightloss #weightlossjourney #determination #Goals

Yesterday after stepping on the scale and realizing that I had gained 4.4 lbs in 11 days I set myself 8 goals for today to get myself on track. So far I’ve accomplished 4 of them and I’m feeling much better.

1) morning meditation - practicing gentle kindness towards ourselves (I love this one - every time I listen to it I hear something new)
2) morning smoothie (this isn’t an ad for shakeology - I don’t use that stuff because it’s crazy expensive and none of the health claims they make have been scientifically proven. I do however have a protein shake for breakfast every morning. The protein keeps me full all morning and I like the consistency of starting my day with the same breakfast every day.)
3) workout - I need a good sweat fest to get my body feeling like itself again. ( I did 80 DayObsession - day 17 Cardio Core. I did it through twice because I have the time and it felt great to get my sweat on!)
4) moderate lunch and dinner - one plate of food, no seconds, no snacking
5) phone check in with my sponsor
6) OA reading - Voices of Recovery and the 12&12 (steps 1, 2 and 3 - so far I’ve read through step 1 - this book is SO good for my mind and soul!!)
7) prayer and intention thinking throughout the day
8) self love- a bend in the road is not the end of the road

I sill have 4 goals for today and an entire afternoon and evening of quality time with my family ahead of me. Life feels good again.

Stop putting emotional values on food. A calorie is a calorie. Is one option nutritionally better for you? Yes. But one “bad” option won’t screw up your healthy lifestyle. Stay in a calorie deficit and you’ll lose weight. Calories in, calories out. #caloriecounting #caloriesincaloriesout #goodfood #badfood #everythinginmoderation #healthylifestyle #allfoodsfit #cleaneating #foodisfuel #foodie #weightloss #weightlossjourney #fitness #fitnessjourney #obesetobeast #fromfattofit #stopeatingyouremotions #overeatersanonymous #eatingdisorderrecovery #bingeeatingrecovery #myfitnesspal #encouragement #motivation #inspiration #strongwomen

Breakfast was "off plan". But this is what I wanted to talk to you about. I want to lose weight, but my main priority is having a healthy relationship with food. OA advise not to follow a diet plan as this can potentially cause people to binge due to guilt from going "off plan" which I completely understand. OA advise to eat 3 meals a day and possibly a healthy snack. To abstain from your trigger foods on you red list, to not over eat and to also abstain from behaviours on your red list. My sponsor told me I needed to take my sw goggles off and that a coffee and a tea cake is not over indulging or breaking any abstinence, It's eating "normally". I choose to follow sw around 90% of the time along side OA as it gives me structure, I like cooking from scratch and I loose weight along the way. I just wanted to update my followers in case any of you were wondering 😊 #OA #OvereatersAnonymous #12Steps #EatingDisorderRecovery #BingeEatingRecovery #OverEatingRecovery #OneMealAtATime #OneDayAtATime #FoodDiary #SW #SlimmingWorld #SlimmingWorldJourney #SlimmingWorldDiary #SlimmingWorldMotivation #SlimmingWorldMafia #SlimmingWorldFamily #2018 #weightloss #weightlossjourney #determination #Goals

I have gained 4.4 lbs since June 30th. All I want to do is bury my shame, disbelief and disappointment in a tub of ice cream but I know that’s not going to help.
Have I binged? Nope.
Have I eaten my trigger foods? Nope.
Have I snacked when I wasn’t hungry and over eaten at meals? Yes and yes.
This last week and a half of vacation has totally thrown me off my routine and I’ve been much less vigilant with my eating. The result is everything I should have expected: bloating, weight gain and a general feeling of ugh. I know that I need to refocus and get my eating back on schedule. I’m going to talk to my sponsor tomorrow night. She always steers me in the right direction during our phone check ins.
As I’ve said before; tomorrow is a new day. I have no social obligations tomorrow so I should be able to get back into my routine and schedule. I hope. Here’s my plan to make tomorrow the best possible reset day for me:
1) morning meditation - practicing gentle kindness towards ourselves
2) morning smoothie
3) workout - I need a good sweat fest to get my body feeling like itself again.
4) moderate lunch and dinner - one plate of food, no seconds, no snacking
5) phone check in with my sponsor
6) OA reading - Voices of Recovery and the 12&12 (steps 1,2 and 3)
7) prayer and intention thinking throughout the day
8) self love- a bend in the road is not the end of the road

What do you think of when you see a gorgeous platter like this? Does it make you feel happy? Or does it make you feel stressed, anxious, nervous...? .
I feel like for a long time I was the latter. Seeing a platter like this would make me lose control, that my “goal” would go out the window... But I can safely say when I saw @alana.marshall_ Baby shower spread I was able to enjoy it and still remain healthy. Here are my top tips:
🥗 Eat before you arrive at the party so you’re not starving.
🥗 Have a look at everything laid out before you first. 🥗 Grab a plate, don’t just start picking and eating. .
🥗 What is the most nutritious food here? Once you get past the crackers and cheese are there any veggie sticks? Great, use them as your “crackers” to dip. 🥗When picking dips try to go with more natural ones such as guacamole or hummus and just lightly dip the veggie sticks.
🥗Is there any fruit? Great use moderate amounts of fruit as to hit your sweet cravings instead of lots of biscuits and cake. 🍓🍒
🥗 Find a spot to sit and relax with your friends or families and eat your meal mindfully, enjoy and savour your food. .
🥗 Next level is to bring protein powder and sip on that in water as a drink, protein is what keeps you satiated for longer. .
🥗It’s just one party, it’s just one event, being healthy and not eating ALL of the cheese, is NOT the end of the world. .
🥗 Yes, I had cake, but it was about a 50c piece and I had tiny little bites and savoured every delicious crumb. 🎂
🥗 Avoid all juices, soft drinks etc, these are just empty calories, just stick to water or sparkling water. 💧
🥗If you can, go to the gym or for a walk in the morning to kick start your metabolism.
.
.
So there you have it, my top tips, I hope this helped💕

During the peak of my binge eating disorder I never had fear foods. I would eat anything and everything and lots of it. Now in the midst of recovery, I have so many fear foods. Anything that doesn’t grow in the ground basically freaks me out because I’m scared to death of gaining weight. But how come when I was binging I didn’t care about how much weight I was gaining? This disorder really is insane to make me a zombie as I shovel food in my mouth. But now that I’ve been restricting and losing weight I’m terrified of going back, while at the same time I kinda miss binging on junk food. I know how fat it makes me feel but I can’t understand why I have the urge to put as much food as possible into my body 😣 Pic is of dinner tonight (green beans, avocado, chicken)
