Just when I think i’ve gained control of my diet and fitness routines, I fall right back into my old habits. The nasty habits that I will probably struggle with for the rest of my life. For those of you that don’t know I have a history of eating disorders, however binge eating seems to be more of a re-occurring event these days. I’m working so hard and I feel like I erase my weeks worth of good eating and hard workouts with one day of uncontrolled eating. It’s like falling so deep in a hole and not knowing how to get yourself out.
I know this is common of previously obese people who have lost a significant amount of weight, but I want to be over this. Two steps back, one step forward.
I know this is very personal, but this a real issue and I don’t believe in posting only the positive side to transformation.
So what do I do after a major WTF moment? That part is easy, I’m good at making plans to fix my mistakes.
1. Drink water
2. Do not starve myself thinking that if I don’t eat then I will undo what i’ve done
3. Don’t over exercise
4. Stick to my meal plan for the rest of the day
5. Start over tomorrow
6. Keep the faith, it will happen with considerations
7. Do not beat myself up for past mistakes
8. Don’t give up
So I want to know:
how do you get back on the horse after you’ve fallen off?
