its becoming so easy to say no to food
i'm not tempted by sweets anymore
i'm back on track and more dedicated than ever to lose weight
i really feel like i'm doing better, i went through a period of bingeing daily for a few weeks and eating so much fast food and chocolate but i'm not in that headspace anymore. i've realised that what i eat and the amount that i eat is barely if at all related to how hungry i am. i eat because i'm stressed, anxious, emotional, sad, bored, not because i'm hungry. i eat because it provides a sense of comfort and entertainment and distraction from my stress, and because of that i don't stop eating when i'm full, and it will more often than not turn into a binge. so in order to get on top of that and stop eating so badly, i need to get on top of my emotions and mental health, primarily by managing my time and stress better. it's not about being disciplined (though that helps), it's about looking at the root causes of why i binge and solving those problems, so i no longer need to distract myself with food. it's not something that happens immediately, but i'm a lot more conscious of it now and getting better. going forward i'm going to be eating less than 650 calories a day (half my bmr) and exercising more regularly.
