|6 years of Food Sobriety 2011 to 2017|
May 3, 2017.
I know it's earned, not a given.
What's working now
1. I eat 3 meals a day ( a few days a 4th)
2. I fast 17:7 or 18:6 most days (not all)
3. I abstain from my trigger foods
(grains, most sugars, guar and xantham gums, nuts)
4. I eat a Paleo, Low Carb, sometimes Keto food template
5. I exercise and sleep on a schedule (most of the time)
6. I get abstaining based support when needed.
7. I'm honest with myself (sometimes I lapse)
8. I'm honest and have trained myself to catch slippery slope thinking, reversing that ASAP.
What didn't work in the past:
1. Ate all day, all the time and at night many times
2. I only went 1-2 hours wihtout eating
3. I moderated all my trigger foods because I was told I had to or I would binge eat (Ughhh!)
4. I ate the Standard American Diet, low fat diet products, and sugary foods.
5. I thought I moved a lot, but was sedentary
6. I didn't seek the right support system- moderation made my food addiction worse.
7. I wasn't honest about how much I was eating and that I was getting sick a lot.
8. I sunk further and further into slipperly slope thinking so I could get food high.
To anyone out there who has helped me, thank you. Thank you very much.
I feel that food sober living is easier than food addiction, so I will stay living in food sobriety for another meal.
Next up, May 2017 check-in and that poop post for our blogger friend. LOL. Onward.
