Eating (trigger warning)
My eating has improved a bit lately, by which I mean that I’ve been eating a more healthy amount than I had been previously. Sometimes I feel good about this and that I’m making some progress, but most days I just feel guilty and scared that I’m gaining weight. I haven’t really been making any effort to stop myself eating a healthy amount but I have thoughts about it still and feel bad. I just have such mixed feelings and I don’t know how to be more comfortable with the better period I think I’m having at the moment, especially since part of me is kind of hoping that it won’t last long and then I’ll go downhill a bit again. I think the fact that it’s the summer holidays and I’m at home a lot is part of what makes me keep snacking so I could probably try to stop doing that so much. Sorry this started positively but while I may physically be doing a bit better mentally I just feel bad about it. If anyone has any advice on how to cope with the possibility of gaining a small bit of weight and attempting to make progress without so many bad thoughts that will probably make me go back to bad habits, I’d really appreciate it. Sorry for the slightly depressing post
