A better day

Hello. Today was a much better day. I was away at a conference all day but managed 90 minutes of brisk walking and only had one sweet option ( we were offered cake 3 times over the day) and had a light lunch option. I didn't feel deprived. I love it when my relationship with food feels naturally ok. Unlike yesterday when I was tired and had a lousy day at work and ate bread and peanut butter after supper.

The trick for me is minimising the binge days because they sabotage all my good effort on the other days.

Yes, it's all about our relationship with food. If I have had a bad day at work, and I do more and more these days, I can sometime think oh blow it and eat what I perhaps shoudn't. Then feel worse........Emotions are are hard thing to keep in check. I tend to eat bread also....strange....


It's so hard when you're in work situations where you can't dictate what your food is going to be so well done on being strong and determined. This time of year has to be the worst , such temptation everywhere and you can feel a real bore not tucking in. Well done!


Glad you had a better day 😊 I know what you mean about normal healthy relationship with food - I'm getting there but still slip up occasionally 😕

Its good know our own triggers, tiredness is a big factor for me too 😕 I just can't resist the sugar.

Have a good weekend 😊


Well done - sounds like you made some conscious decisions yesterday.

I used to work with problem drinkers and came across this advice at one point: don't get to Hungry, Angry, Lonely or Tired (HALT!), as those are the times when we sabotage our best intentions, it works for me with food, and makes me think about what need I want to satisfy and how can I do it without resorting to food.
