Hey guys, I have an update on my Intuitive Eating journey for you guys. As you may remember from my breakthrough, I decided to take the process slowly in order to fully understand and embrace it. I didn’t want to read the whole book cover to cover right away because I know I would miss many important things about it, so instead I wanted to focus on things little by little. Letting the facts take time to soak in and therefore, hopefully, become permanent in my journey to a healthier and happier life.
If you haven’t seen my second video about Rejecting The Diet Mentality, which is on my YouTube channel, you are welcome to go watch it. I don’t post every single video on my blog so I encourage you to subscribe to my channel as I plan on making more progress videos as well as some other fun videos. I may be late to the game but I’m starting to like YouTube as a part of blogging. Vlogs can be fun. But anyway, yeah I’ve made progress with rejecting the diet mentality and learning to live in a world saturated with weigh loss and diet messages. I overreacted a little bit after reading the first few principles of the Intuitive Eating book but I’ve learned to deal with it. I outline it in the second video.
Currently I am at a stage where I am learning to deal with emotional eating. By eating emotionally BUT also mindfully, I was able to have a breakthrough and something happened that has NEVER happened to me before. Literally. If you have ever struggled with emotional eating or binge eating, I’m sure you will be able to relate to what I mean and why I find this to be such a big progress in this journey. Watch the vlog on this post to see what I mean.
I’d love to hear your experiences if you have ever had trouble stopping when you start eating emotionally or how you try to stop yourself mid-binge or regain control during an emotional eating episode. All of your experiences are helpful and enlightening. Remember, most of us have gone through these experiences so most of us can relate to what you have gone through and the difficulty you felt with stopping. We’re here to listen and give support.
Have a great St. Patrick’s Day!
