Counting calories works for some people, but for me it has always been a slippery slope to obsession. 📕 The number of notebooks I have with careful, exacting logs of exactly what I’d eaten, down to the tenth of a calorie… and I never reached that ideal weight, not that I’m sure there was a weight at which I would have been able to call myself happy. 🖊 My challenge every day is to feed myself without punishing myself. It has been a long and challenging #bulimiarecovery with a lot of backsliding, and I live with the knowledge that I walk a thin line (no pun intended!). 📓 I spent so much time obsessing about what I was eating that I know I missed out on appreciating everything that was wonderful about my life. I don’t plan to fall into that trap ever again.
