I wonder sometimes what the actual turning point in my life was…the one thought, or attitude which changed my perspective from -I can’t, to -I can?

I often thought that I had to come to terms with my emotions to stop bingeing. And to some extent that may be true. But when I discovered what really fueled my binges, the emotional piece sort of just took care of itself.

… self control isn’t about forcing myself to eat the right foods and exercise more. It’s not about making myself feel guilty for eating too much or the wrong foods. It’s about allowing myself to function naturally, trusting that I have what it takes to love and nourish myself regardless of what anyone else says.
