Before I stared getting healthy, I would fixate on different unhealthy foods and I would think about them all day long. If there was something in the house, like cookies, I couldn't fall asleep knowing they were there without having
And I feel like now that I am eating healthy, I STILL have an obsession. I think about food all.the.time. Like what I am going to have for lunch. If we go out if I will be able to have something healthy. If I will be able to resist the yummy stuff thats bad for me. If I will have a healthy snack on hand if I get hungry. If my peppers are still good. If the oil I am cooking in has trans fats.
I would say 85% of my thoughts throughout the day are about food! They are different thoughts, healthy thoughts, but still it's in there! I totally understand that that is just part of weight reduction and getting healthy, but I am getting tired of it.
I am not sure if there will ever be a time in my life where I don't have to think about food all the time. I know as a binge eater that I probably will always have to be on alert. Even when I am "done" I could still fall back into binge eating behaviors and I think about that!
My whole point is I think too much. But I need a little reassurance that at some point it wont be so hard. Anybody?
