Yesterday was the first time - I think - I went out eating since starting my counters. It went surprisingly well. I was moderately mindful while eating. Talking to a friend and eating at the same time did divide my attention. But I ordered a reasonable dish, payed attention to my satiety signals now and then and stopped eating when felt full enough and did not enjoy the fries any more. This is a huge win in my book and it feels so good :blush:

I had a very good book that helped me with that but unfortunately i think it exist only in french. It’s called “the end of diets” by jean-philippe zemati.
It has so techniques to end toxic relationship with food like journalin. There was a cool exercize where you make peace with the food that makes you loose control. It was to eat in a day only your most problematic food : for me at the time it was mars bars. No restrictions on the volume. At the end of the day you usually have a huge deficit because your body naturally gets fed up. And you stop obsessing over it so much because now you know you can have it without going bonkers. I do that from time to time when i start obsessing over something.
Can tell you other off the tricks if you’re interested.

@Elissa Congrats on 30 days. That’s huge! :partying_face::clap:t2:
I’m currently listening a podcast about eating behaviours and the host just introduced the concept of joy eating. Eating foods one likes for as long as one enjoys eating them. I’m currently working on this. Already tried it out with the fries I had recently. I think the concept is in the vein of what you wrote about ending toxic relationships with food and finding peace. Thanks for sharing this idea.

you’re doing great Cam! you got a handle on the binge-restriction - now invest some energy into building positive experiences w your body. yoga, stretching, some band work, walks or back to the gym. you deserve all the good that will come from those!

@acromouse thank you :blush:
@Faugxh thank you for that, I’ve always wanted to get into Yoga, I’ll search for the thread :blush: I have been doing atleast 5K steps every day this week, I know it’s not much for some people, but it’s more than I was doing. :raised_hands:t2:

12 days no takeaways.
11 days no sugar.
9 days no crisps, no binge-eating.

Cravings and urges are incessant, especially between 6-10pm. When the shops close. a huge wave of relief washes over me, and I feel so peaceful. I am not feeling very strong at all though. It would be so good to achieve double digits tomorrow, but I have something very concerning to deal with in regards to my health, so it’s going to be far from easy.

Hi all, back after idk…maybe a 90 day or so stretch? Thought I could be fine on my own…first and biggest mistake. So here I am, down but not defeated. I have to remember I will always be an addict, I can not do this alone, my goal is to be sober. Here’s my day 1.

@Jenny1972 Welcome back to the forum!
@CATMANCAM Consistent 5K a day is great. Building good patterns with your body and mind is the way to go. I’m sorry cravings are driving you nuts love. I’m rooting for double digits.

13 days no takeaways.
12 daya no sugar.
10 days no crisps, no binge-eating.

I actually can’t believe I just typed that! Somehow I have all my counters on double digits. I hope I don’t mess this up. I am still really craving and having super strong urges, but I really don’t want to reset. Checking-in on this thread is really helping me to be stronger against these addictions. (Thank you @Aleyadaisey :blush:)
