5 Reasons You’re Still Over Eating And How To Stop

“If I could just stop over eating at night, I’d finally lose the weight!”

“If I could just control my portions at dinner, I’d get rid of this belly.”

Not a month goes by where I don’t hear some form of this complaint.  It’s super common, btw, for both men and women.  This is not a “girl” eating problem.  It’s a busy AF HUMAN PROBLEM so if you’re constantly “missing the mark” or “off track” with dinner, let’s chat.

First, you need to know that I 100% relate and empathize w/ anyone struggling w/ the non-stop, continuous, calorie bomb dinner as this was one of my biggest issues as well.

When hangry, I can out eat a large, adult male no problem.  “Healthy” food, “junk” food and everything in between food… if I’ve let my hunger get away from me, it’s gonna be gone, cookie monster style.  

Every single excuse/fear/obstacle below while it might be yours, you need to know, it was my own once upon a time, as well.

I get it.  I lived it.  I struggled with it.  I beat it.

5 STEPS TO GETTING STUFF DONE, MOTIVATION FREE

I’m waiting …

  1. for my work schedule to slow back down.
  2. for the weather to get warmer.
  3. to finish up this project.
  4. for my kids’ baseball season to end.
  5. for my big work trip to pass.
  6. for the holidays to end.
  7. for life to settle down.
  8. for kids to go back to school.
  9. to find the time again.
  10. to feel motivated again.

Sound familiar?

More often than not, getting hard things done, is a series of uncomfortable sacrifices.

It’s no wonder we create a WAITING game!

We hope one discomfort will end, settle down, or pass by before adding in another to our already busy lives.

It makes total sense… until we really sit down and consider how powerless this leaves us.

To wait means that our wants, wishes, and desires and completely DEPENDENT on someone or something else.

Rather than design, carve, or battle our way through, we take a complacent route and allow any resistance to fade or diminish on it’s own, if it so desires, whenever it pleases.

The struggle is real but suffering is optional

Early this summer I was casually chatting with a friend over just common #momlife problems. Towards the end she made an innocent statement about how good it felt to simply know “I too, make mistakes.”

Brene Brown, a social researcher, professor, and author, talks extensively about the tremendous impact hearing the phrase “me too” has when people are in the midst of a struggle.

In fact, one of the main reasons I started to talk and continue to talk so openly about my various eating disorders and body image problems was your very own HEALING impact on ME.

When I revealed not only my bout with anorexia but also binge eating, I got dozens of emails back saying some form of, “ME TOO!!”

And then again, when I became open about how brutal a financial and emotional blow creating sweatlocal was in the midst of unemployment, another set of dozens of “ME TOO!!”

 

Not that everyone was mounting businesses, of course, but my pain in the struggle resonated with yours and yours with mine and that dark shame that hides behind isolation seemed to give way to hope.

 

Here’s the thing… my friends surprise that, “I, too, make mistakes” stems from reading my newsletters and blog posts and not seeing that what I write about are things I’ve spent countless HOURS pondering and reflecting over, WEEKS studying and reading, and MONTHS practicing, experimenting, and failing fast to find solutions.

I PURPOSEFULLY do not share my PERSONAL LIFE PUBLICLY in the midst of a storm because if I have no solutions, insights, or growth to offer then all I’m doing is complaining, venting, wallowing, and whining and that is indulgent, unhelpful, and not worthy of taking up real estate in your inbox and your precious time.
