Raise your hand if you’ve ever lied to the lady taking your take-out order over the phone. “Hahaha yes I know it’s a big order it’s for me and a bunch of my friends!”
Yeah. Me too. And I’d lie to the delivery guy, too.
I used to eat a whole pizza and then feel a terrible sense of shame. Or a whole cake. Or 3 meals from the drive-through. Or enough take-out for a large family… just for me. (The shame when they bring you enough chopsticks for a family of 10 is real, amiright?)
I’d eat it all because I couldn’t stop myself. Then, I would roll around in my sense of shame like a pig rolls around in the mud. I would COVER myself, head to toe, in guilt and shame.
Why do I do this? I’m so fat and lazy.
Why don’t I have any willpower? I am so gross and broken.
Why does the food have so much control over me? I’m so disgusting and weak.
And those were the nicest things I’d say to myself.
I would berate myself, then feel terrible about myself, and then do what every overeater does to feel better…
I’d eat again.
I was stuck in a vicious cycle and couldn’t get out.
If you’ve ever felt this, then I made this video in my Devour Life Facebook group for YOU.
In it, I talk about how we get ourselves into this cycle, and how to break free from it.
I still get shudders when I think of how awful it felt to feel so out-of-control.
Now, I have pretty much zero desire to overeat or emotionally eat. But, on the rare occasion that I do, it’s no big deal. I NEVER feel guilt or shame with food anymore. Ever.
And you deserve the same, friend.
Hugs and High-Fives to Breaking the Cycle,
