Weekend is here...and so is the food intake nightmares

The weekend is here and so is the dreaded binges. 
I don't know about you but the weekends are my hardest time to say no to sweetness. I enjoy relaxing, having some sweets on the weekend spending time with family. Is this a problem? Well it is when you make it into a all out weekend binge. 
My trick is to make sure I don't deprive myself a awesome yummy treat or two. I have learned if you deprive yourself of the things in life you can not have, you just end up stuffing yourself with every thing you can get your hands on. Then come  Monday morning your beating yourself up for binge eating.  The viscous cycle will, mark my words, continue until you admit to yourself you have a eating disorder and need help.

Help comes to those who ask!
You can continue this love hate relationship with food or you can search for the reason behind why it is you feel the need to eat your feelings. It is a scary thing to do, but so is dying from obesity and leaving the ones you love behind.

I have had so many health issues, and I believe it all boils down to my struggle with food. I have had many years of yo-yo dieting and this is very taxing on the body. Of course my body will fight back, it has no clue why I deprived, then binge, then deprived it again. All it knows is it is trying to keep up with the demand I put on my internal organs. I shouldn't be surprised that sickness has shown up in other areas of my health. 
This year has been full of learning experiences. I've finally come to terms with my eating disorder and I really take the time everyday to question if I'm being good to me or am I eating for other reasons. My body answers my questions daily by either getting ill from nasty food, or makes me feel alive from healthy foods. With this said I feel like you really need to pay attention to how your body responds and then you can make the wise choice not to be bad to your self by eating to much garbage.

You are worthy of living healthy and hunger free. You don't need to abuse yourself any more, the past is the past, leave it there. DO NOT go another day making excuses why you eat the way you do! Get plenty of exercise in, and don't say I'm to busy, squats can be done doing dishes! So if there IS a will there IS a way!!
DO NOT let those head demons win!

Love your body, its the only place you have to live!!
Have a blessed weekend
