Eating problem.



Hello, my name is Annie and I have an eating problem.
(Admitting it is the first step, right?)

That's right, I'll be the first to admit that I have a messed up relationship with food.  Like so messed up that I thought about going to therapy for it.

I sleep so i don't eat.
I can't wait till events/parties are over so there won't be food in my face.
I think about food 24/7. Shopping lists, recipes to try, what's in the refrig right now, etc.
I feel guilty if i don't eat something... then feel guilty if I do eat it.
I over-indulge once my day goes bad.
I over-indulge if I had an excellent day before.

No way to live life at all!

So I think it's perfect that March is "National Nutrition Month" AND one of my March goals is focusing on eating clean at every meal, 6 days a week (leaving one meal available as my cheat meal).

Follow me on Facebook to get more details and participate in the challenge.

Today is day 6 of the challenge and so far..

I'm rocking like a freakin ROCKSTAR!!!!

Between this challenge and my new workout program, I'm expecting some great results for March.  I know I'm talking big only one week into the month, but mindset is what sets us up for success. 

It's not too late to join in on my clean-eating challenge!  
What have you got to lose (besides unhealthy habits and weight)?

It's so hard to confront our issues with food and actually change the mindsets we've held for so long.
There is such a fine balance between healthy and being overly obsessive. I don't think I've found it yet, keep us posted!

It's as if you took the words out of my mouth. I am exactly the same. I panic about social situtations where there will be high calorie food or drink.

I think about what I am going to eat all day everyday or what I am not going to eat.

I've given up chocolate for Lent to combat my food addiction. I will have gone two weeks without tomorrow.

This post sounded like you were in my head writing my thoughts for me. Thanks for being so upfront, it really is a hard thing to admit and I think a lot of people that have been/are overweight struggle with this same thing.

I can relate to all of this Annie! I hope March is really successful for you and I am glad to hear it's going so well so far. :)

I was wondering how you're doing today, as I realized how little I've actually tried to change over to clean eating. I'm so psyched to hear you're rocking it and feeling great! That's incredibly motivating to hear, because I have a very long process to go before I can commit to something that is so different than what I'm used to. Once I start hearing specifics about your results, I think that will be inspiring to me and make the changes seem worth the effort.

Keep rocking it!! I'm really happy for you!

I've been thinking about where my eating problem started, and realized that it was probably when I was pregnant with my first child. My weight went into numbers that had been taboo before. Suddenly, I was there hitting the taboo weight, with nothing I could do about it.

So I do need to think differently about eating, and somehow think of myself differently with the poundage number.
