One day, one meal at a time
I can't believe January is over. It seems like yesterday that the new year was rung in and celebrated. Between my ED issues and work, it feels like I haven't had much time to breathe.
Right now, I am taking things one day and one meal at a time. Anything more and I'll freak out. This morning was rough. I found a skirt in the closet that I had never wore. After putting the outfit together on my bed, I showered and put it on. It was when I was putting on my black tights that I became fixated on how huge my thighs looked. I have to be at work at 8 a.m. so I am having a freak out at 7:25.
So using the techniques that my therapist and I had discussed, I talked myself from the proverbial ledge. i am pretty proud of myself because I feel like it was small victory against ED. I have come a long way to let it defeat. Right now, there are some bumps in the road but i am trying. So it is one day and one meal at a time.
1. It's Friday and I don't have to work this weekend!
2. Finding Rice Works (brown rice crisps think chips) Sweet Chili to snack on
3. Five days until I meet my new therapist.
