Freedom from "Forbidden" Thinking
By MackenzieFrom Mn
Hi Ladies, I am sharing an experience I had with the exercise of eating 'forbidden' food for 10 days in a row as directed by Dilia. Here's the experience I shared with her that I'd like to share with you all as well: > Hi Dilia, Well - I did it! A couple times. First time didn't go as well as I
would have liked. I got anxious and excited and while I TRIED to
eat slowly it didn't really happen. I was aware that I was losing
my control over it but couldn't seem to stop myself. Overall I
didn't eat the amount I would have if I was on a binge but I still
went to bed feeling uncomfortable in my tummy.However - the last couple of days I gave myself full permission to eat whatever I wanted and it's been less of a big deal. My husband and I ordered cake last night and I only had about 4-5 bites and I felt satisfied.Giving myself full permission has really helped. I don't NEED it. I can choose to have it if I want and suddenly it's less appealing.
Yay! ----> This is from a woman who has been on a diet since she was 5 and moving from one stolen, shameful binge to the next has more or less made up the fabric of my eating experience. I always thought I had as raging sweet tooth! Turns out I just had a raging guilt problem with the food. Amazing!
This is awesome improvement, Mackenzie! Thanks for sharing!
Good for you!
I appreciate your words, "has been on a diet since she was 5 and moving from one stolen, shameful binge to the next has more or less made up the fabric of my eating." This statement rings true for me too. I am excited to get to a place of peace around a piece of cake. Today will be my initial chat with Dilia to get this underway (or underweigh to be witty)-yippee!
