Making healthy choices
Sorry I deleted my old thread, I felt vulnerable.

Previously I have tried controlling my food by having treats on a Sunday only but I am finding i binge on sugar that day.

Now I am thinking, if I have one small treat maybe twice a week, I will feel more in control and be able to eat more sensibly on Sundays.

Worth a go? Any advice?

I think I'm gaining weight. What do I do? I can't get fat again.

you know what smart goals are, i think? what about instead of having things be so black and white maybe try creating some smart goals around foods? i personally find it easier to not binge on foods if i allow myself to have them when i want it. forbidding eating in general or eating certain foods except for only at set times makes it much harder to eat them in moderation.

also weighing yourself never tends to help things either as it's so easy to get fixated on numbers and how those change. i lost track of your old thread but i think at one point you were considering not weighing yourself. do you think that might be worth trying or considering?

tell me to delete if this is useless.

Thanks for your help. I won't weigh myself. I'm just terrible at finding balance with food.

My CPN said not to lose or gain weight so now I'm even more worried about eating too much

tamobhuuta 12-06-2019 03:17 PM

Maybe it's easier to just not eat...

tamobhuuta 13-06-2019 07:43 PM

L said if I carry on not eating I won't have the energy to go on the trip we've planned and will end up in hospital. But I don't want to eat.

tamobhuuta 14-06-2019 04:26 PM

Why is eating so hard? Normally if nothing else I'll want chocolate, but these last few days...

tamobhuuta 14-06-2019 07:34 PM

I had a snack but now I'm really regretting it. I don't know why. Maybe I should purge?

nonperson 14-06-2019 09:41 PM

There is nothing wrong with having a snack. Why do you regret it?

L is very right about not having enough energy to do the things you want to do if you don't eat properly. And yes, you will end up in hospital if you don't eat at all. It also won't help you lose weight heathily, if that is your intention.

Is this something you think you could talk to someone about?

tamobhuuta 14-06-2019 10:06 PM

I don't care about calories. When I eat I feel guilty.

nonperson 14-06-2019 10:18 PM

But what is it you feel guilty about?

tamobhuuta 14-06-2019 10:19 PM

I don't know! Sorry, I'm a bit out of it.

nonperson 14-06-2019 11:15 PM

It's ok, describing why you feel certain things isn't an easy task at the best of times. But thinking about why might help to resolve it?

tamobhuuta 15-06-2019 11:00 AM

I will try to think about it.

tamobhuuta 16-06-2019 12:19 PM

I ate a bit yesterday and regret it. But my mum says if I'm not eating properly I can't go to church or I'll faint all over the place.

tamobhuuta 20-06-2019 07:50 PM

It's dinner time in a minute. I don't want to eat but the whole family eats together. I don't want to have an argument.

I'm seeing my CPN tomorrow and have written down key points but I'm still nervous.

tamobhuuta 21-06-2019 01:57 PM

I saw my CPN. He says I need to eat more, that I can feel in control by eating healthily rather than restricting. He made a suggested eating plan for me. It's a lot more to eat, although not many more calories. I try to follow the advice of health professionals and my parents in these things but it's hard.
