ONE DAY, ONE MEAL AT A TIME
Saturday, May 21, 2011
Years ago I was on a food addicts eating plan and the reason it worked so well for me was that the foods were limited, as they are now on my WW Filling Foods plan, and I only had to get through one meal at a time. In thinking back, I can bring that mental approach into the 21st century with me to reduce the stress of worrying about my total points for the day.
As a food addict, I can't handle too much at once when it comes to food and food related issues. I can only do breakfast without concern for what lunch will bring. More than one meal at a time throws me into a state of confusion, and I want to have it all at once. Thereby, I'll have more of this or that, and it won't matter. I can't deal with it, so I sweep it under the rug. Maybe that's why so many of us have nightime food issues. We eat, and go to sleep, wake up hours later, and it just never happened. I know I've said this before, but it's worth repeating because it happens again and again, until we take control of it and become aware.
So for today, I will get through this day only, one meal at a time. I FEEL better and a lot more free already. Baby steps, baby steps.
