I want to play again!!! Last time I wrote this I was still binging a lot so I feel like many things have changed.
These are some of my favourite foods: sushi, peanut butter, bagels, cream cheese, guacamole, chicken, tomatoes, cottage cheese, oatmeal, dark chocolate, mozzarella cheese, apples, bananas, pasta, pizza, ice cream, risotto, mushrooms and bread. --> this is the same as last time but I also want to add crèpes, ricotta cheese, lasagna, goat's cheese, raspberries and pancakes.
These are the foods that I really don't like: plain almonds, protein shakes/ smoothies, chickpeas/ beans, eggs, lamb meat, alcohol, and pineapple.
This is how I feel about breakfast: I still love breakfast, maybe even more than before. I LOVE oatmeal with protein powder and lots of penut butter.
I have a hard time controlling my eating when I'm feeling: Still the same: anxious, bored, lonely, tired or upset.
I do really well eating in these situations: When I'm busy and happy with my life. When I feel productive and have other enjoyble things in my life bsides food. I also handle social situations and restaurants really well. I keep getting better at ordering what I truly want and eating until I am comfortably full.
I have a hard time limiting my portions when I eat: Still at buffets, but I'm getting better.
This is how I feel about eating out in restaurants: I still love it. I can eat stuff that I wouldn't make at home and I rarely overeat. I also like sharing food now!
I would describe my food philosophy like this: I eat when I'm hungry, mostly "healthy" foods and when I feel like it I throw in some "unhealthy" stuff in reasonable portions. I usually don't over eat.
I feel strong and healthy when I eat: Lots of carbs, moderate fats and protein. Not too many vegetables/ salads--> this stayed the same
Am I a grazer or a binger? NEITHER! I can finally say I am not a binger any more. I was an under-eater/ restrictive eater and that’s what caused me to binge. When I eat enough I don’t binge. And I have never been a grazer. I like 3 square meals + 1 snack right before bed.
I'm really good at: Exercising consistently and in a way that makes me feel good. I don’t over exercise and I don’t do things that I don’t enjoy.
I'm afraid of these foods: NONE! I can honestly say that I don’t have any fear foods. I mean, some foods are still more difficult for me to eat than others (anything sweet, starchy, fatty or just caloric in general) but the difference is that now I eat them instead of letting the fear take over. I eat those foods a couple of times without over eating and then the fear goes away.
I would like to change these things about my eating: I would like to keep moving towards normalizing all foods. I am getting there but I am not 100% yet.
I believe I'm Naturally Thin because: I don’t overeat. I eat when I’m hungry and I don’t get too full (most of the time). These are the best habits I have formed in the past year or so.
