I couldn’t stay away. le sigh
You know I’d thought I’d quit doing the raw thing because I’d become obsessed with percentages and and and… it pulled me too close to my old eating disorders for comfort, and I found myself sliding into obsessive behaviour and unhealthy body image.
However, since dropping the raw thing (early October)... I feel like crap.
I look like crap.
My skin looks like crap.
Oh… and I’ve put on weight. Like, not a little.
Keep in mind, compared to the SAD I’m still eating ‘super healthy’...
So here I am again, because, really and truly, I feel way better eating raw.
I’ve been two days raw, adn already the stomach swelling has gone down and I feel more energy.
So my question is… how the heck do I do this and stay healthy, mentally????
I’m looking for solid advice here, especially from those who have struggled with an eating disorder in the past.
How do you avoid obsessing over percentages of raw vs. cooked?
How do you avoid slipping into your old patterns of thought and behaviour?
What helped you and what was danger territory for you?
Oh…and I’d love to be welcomed back into the fold with open arms, please. I’ve missed you guys.
