I am a binge eater, I said it. I’m not quite sure how long it’s been going on, but I’d say at least 10-12 years.
My weight has fluctuated upwards of 20 lbs over the last 10 years and I am at my heaviest weight in over a year, we don’t need to talk numbers – cause let’s be honest – it’s all relative.
About 9 months ago I became a health and fitness coach, and in about 2-3 months I got to my healthiest/fittest ME I’ve ever been.
I felt amazing, strong, confident – and then I started getting out of control with my eating habits.
I can’t eat just one cookie, a few crackers or a slice of cheese. I eat 10, 20, or more! It’s like an alien invades my brain and convinces me that I NEED that peanut butter cup or the entire bag of popcorn – and then I spiral out of control!
I know what I need to be eating to fuel my body, I coach people every day on the right choices to make and how to stay the course!
So, why am I having trouble? I’m not entirely sure, but writing this is the start of me getting to the route of my self-sabotage! Admitting is the first step, as hard as this is!
No one is perfect, and we are all navigating this crazy world as best we can. All we can do is try our hardest and NEVER give up!!
Tomorrow is a new day, right?!
