Food is not something we need to earn by working out or “being good”. Food is fuel and essential to life. Food is a basic human need. By saying we need to “earn” food, that essentially says when we do not work out that day, we should not be allowed to eat. Yikes!
Expensive water which claims to solve all of your problems? Probably a good idea to pass on that!
Just dropping this here for whoever needs this reminder as all the November weight loss challenges pop up. Do them if you want, but know that it’s not going to heal your relationship with food and it might make navigating food at the winter holidays even more challenging.
You’re not good for restricting Halloween candy and you’re not bad for eating it.
Please stop commenting on how much candy people eat one way or the other.
Recovery from an eating disorder is so much more nuanced than just being able to eat cupcakes and ice cream! Although that’s certainly nice to be able to have these things and not freak out or need to compensate afterwards!
Halloween can be scary for some people (witches, ghosts, and vampires aside). So many of my clients struggle with bingeing on candy this time of the year. Can you relate?
