Whether you’re a size 2 or a size 32 we’ve all dealt with cravings. Some of us deal with our cravings better than others.
There was a time when I couldn’t have one cookie and then stop. Or I’d eat a big bag of the family size chips. Or I ate way more than a pint of ice cream.
What’s worse than giving in to this craving is the emotional downfall which makes you spiral even more out of control.
The self-hatred, the loathing and the shame you feel for “failing “ again is even worse than the crash you feel after the food high you’ve been on.
There are times when we just eat a few cookies to many and not the whole pack, or ate a handful extra of chips, and we beat ourselves up thinking we’ve binged when in actuality we just overate a few hundred extra calories.
But whether you’ve just overeaten a few extra calories or actually binged the solution is still the same thing. You pick yourself up and you start over. What’s done is done and you can’t undo it. So why wallow in self-pity? Staying stuck in this mindset will only pull you further down into a path where you’ll most likely spiral out of control!
You don’t exercise for three hours or eat only salads to punish yourself.
My advice to you is to drink your water, exercise as usual, eat a nutritious meal when you eat your next meal, get a good night of sleep, and most importantly forgive yourself.
We all slip up sometimes whether we share it or not. No fitness journey is perfect. There are ups and downs. There are times when we plateau and there are days we just don’t want to workout.
But what’s the difference between someone who actually loses the weight and keeps it off and a person who doesn’t?
One didn’t give up. One of them kept pushing past all the roadblocks.
Now ask yourself which one are you and are you happy with this person.
The first step is trying and the next step is not giving up when things get hard!
Keep going! If no one else believes in you know that I do. You’ve got this!
I am not a doctor or a professional therapist. This article is from my personal experience and observations. But, I also want to state if you do suffer from an eating disorder it’s okay to ask for help. It actually is a brave thing to do, and you’re on your way to a new and healthier mindset and lifestyle.
