There is a great free course offered; The Whole Batch Syndrome, which I had been meaning to do but kept putting off. I told myself I just didn't have the time or energy to put into right now but I think the real reason was I knew I was falling back into my diet mentality and I was feeling down. I did the entire course last night, and so glad I did. Several things she discusses were so me. I am not alone. That concept, on its own, can be so helpful in a time of sadness. She made one comment regarding doing various diets in her past and saying they were for health reasons but really, if she was being truthful with herself, it was for weight loss. I did that for years and think I may still be doing it to some extent. I want to feel better, of course, but it's always in the back of my mind about losing the weight.
I feel like I am ready to continue again. I am not looking at anything long term; just taking it one meal at a time. No more good foods vs bad foods, or being good vs being bad. I am eating what I want and need; and no weighing.
Had some Sweet Potato Hash with eggs this morning/afternoon; more of a brunch. Picked on some gluten-free crackers and cream cheese for a snack. Also had some chocolate peanut butter ice cream :) Dinner tonight was roasted veggies and chicken. Regardless of what I ate it's a great day because I feel good today!
