    Trineoty got a reaction from Shelda17 in Don't over think this.   
    Love this post! Thank you, Robin. I am definitely one who overthinks and can become legalistic in the rules when it pertains to food and my body. I've had disordered eating for most of my adult life. I know I am not going to fix everything in 30 days, with how I view food, or how I see my body, but it is a journey filled with baby steps......and three steps forward, two steps back.
    The conventional American diet sets us up for failure by feeding us low-fat, processed garbage that never satisfies us nutritionally or emotionally. When you are eating whole food made traditionally, food is delicious, amazing, and satisfying. You are nourishing your body, and teaching it to listen to its own signals......imagine that! What a concept!

    Thank you for this! I worked a rogue night shift this week (between day 2 and day 3 of my W30) and was having some guilt twinges regarding my every 2 hour egg/meat/coconut milk/veggie 'muffin' - but it allowed me to get through the night without having graham crackers and peanut butter (an ICU staff nutritional staple!). It's not what I do on a normal day, but I survived my shift with my W30 intact so it was a victory. I think we are very hard on ourselves sometimes. I was actually feeling GUILTY about the 'egg muffings' because I felt I was 'snacking'. Then I remembered that we hear a lot about context here. And in that moment (or those 12 hours) I was doing what I had to do to maintain my W30. And I felt better. Yay me!!
