Falling Down

My 30 day challenge is not going well. The year started off strong but now, somehow I’ve spiraled. I’m eating things I shouldn’t, not listening to my body, have no desire to exercise, am struggling to journal and am just generally feeling out of sorts. Perhaps I tried to take on too much but honestly, it wasn’t going well when I was just trying to do one thing at a time either. And it has been a very long time (well over a year, close to two) since I’ve binged but two nights ago I came very close.

I’m not sure what the problem is. Life is good; there is nothing making me feel out of control or which I feel the need to escape/hide from.

And because I don’t know why I also don’t know how to fix it right now. I’m really trying to be gentle with myself and focus on solutions instead of beating myself up.

But man am I pissed to find myself back here again.

  1. Hey, we all have ups and downs. Just get back on the horse! But maybe you should approach it in a different way. Why not think of it as you changing yourself for your whole life, not just 30 days!

    • Thanks for reading and for the encouragement. Recovery from eating disorders is an ongoing life-long process with many ups and downs. Long term recovery is hard and it means accepting some things that I may not really want to- like being able to not binge and focusing on my overall health will *always* take precedence over weight loss. It sucks but it is what it is.
