When you say no to โ€œcompulsive eatingโ€ in the moments you lose touch with yourSelf – no matter how many days free you are from using this addiction – it doesnโ€™t mean the pull to turn to it isnโ€™t there.

Heck no.

Not for me anyway.

Somedays itโ€™s as if compulsive/binge eating and I had never met.

Somedays weโ€™re friends and she has great respect for my needs.

Somedays I feel empowered Knowing Iโ€™ve completely got this.

Somedays itโ€™s a fight where I feel as if sheโ€™s got me in a chokehold, but I manage to tap out.

And somedaysโ€ฆ somedays itโ€™s EXHAUSTING, like sheโ€™s a little child nag, nag, nag, nagging at me ALL.DAY.LONG. until I snap (give in) – but I donโ€™t.

I fall. I get back UP.
I sink. I SOAR.
I lay down. I RISE.ย ๐Ÿ”ฅ

And the cycle continues.

And the truth Iโ€™ve found in letting go of all of this.heavy.stuff is this:

When you no longer believe that stuffing your body with food will save your life when you feel overwhelmed, lonely and tired – youโ€™ll stop.

When you know that you are MORE than the mind and the body – you will stop.

When you no longer cling your worth to the shape of the body – you will stop.

And, when you FINALLY believe in the power of yourself – you will stop.

Each time I feel that urge to turn to food I know that sheโ€™s (Binge) is helping me become aware of something Iโ€™ve turned my back on, or havenโ€™t become aware of yet, and Iโ€™m about to see something new about my personal truth.ย ๐Ÿ’›

Relax into the discomfort my love. Truth, not resistance – will always guide you on your way.

Always cheering you on.
