Wow, I'm doing a lot better than I thought.

So it's been awhile since I've posted here.  I have to say that my regular eating habits have improved pretty dramatically since these posts from last year, but my binges have not.

For example, I have successfully stopped eating pop tarts for breakfast daily.  Also, I tend to eat leftover cooking or a healthy-ish homemade sandwich for lunch at work instead of something crazy processed and junk food-y like Lean Pockets or Chef Boy-Ar-De.  Plus, I'm cooking a lot more throughout the week, eating several servings of vegetables daily, and drinking tons of water.

These things all have become just a part of everyday life now, I don't even think about them anymore.  But they were really hard changes at first.  I'm glad that I came back to this blog for a bit, because I deserve a pat on the back for the healthy changes that I have made to my diet.


I still binge, at least a couple times a week.  My personal definition of a binge changes with my mood, but the latest one is that I eat just to eat, and eat well above an average amount, and then I go back to the kitchen or the store for more, looking for anything that can satisfy my hunger that is not actually hunger because I already ate a healthy dinner, a healthy snack, and an entire bag of chips.

That.  I do that at least twice a week.

It sucks.

But I am happy to realize, after looking at the posts on my food blog from last year, that I am in fact doing a lot better with my healthy eating habits, outside of the binge issue.

It's always good to give yourself credit where it is due, even though it can be hard to do when still dealing with major issues.
