Does this sound familiar to you too? When I was a chronic dieter, and if you don’t know my story then understand I lived in daily dysfunction for YEARS, but I always started my diets by binging on all the foods I couldn’t have “once I started the diets”>>>So, if that was me cleaning out the “bad foods” by eating them or going to the store and buying all my favorites to eat in one sitting...that is how I did it. Was it right? At the time I didn’t know any better. I didn’t know. I was just caught up in the cycle of dieting>>>Focused on the short term goal of weight loss. Focused on the size 2 dress. Focused on being “hot” and therefore some how more acceptable to the world around me. >>>Little did I know, that I was missing out on living my life. Happy moments free from guilt. Free from being scared of wearing what I wanted. Life wasn’t about how I looked to others. If I was to die the next day, would I have said, “oh damn it. I should have done that diet sooner”? No, I would have said why the F did I spend my time dieting at all.>>>Living your life like this isn’t fun (it’s a prison) and it’s not really living either. I missed out on SO much by not understanding that there was more to life. That I was more, not less.>>>Are you really living your life? Or are you letting dieting dictate how much living your “allowed” to do?
