I am 28 years old with a great husband of 8 years and a four year old daughter. I like to cook, work out, read, and chat.
I have been dieting for years. I am sick of the rollercoaster, and I don't want to ride it any longer. I am in fact already in a healthy range, but I am above what I consider my "happy weight".
I am going back to Intuitive eating. I did it once before and reached my goal weight, but over time, got overly strict, and turned it into yet another diet, only eating when hungry, with no leeway for different situations or room for error. Sometimes I went much too long without eating, because I missed the opportunity to eat, since I wasn't hungry yet, then when I was hungry, food was unavailable. In the end, I got off track with my hunger signals and began overeating and trying to make up for it the next day, and it became like a diet in that sense.
I did keep the weight off longer than with any other diet, and it was easier to stick with. I know it is a more natural way of eating.
As my 30TH b-day looms on the horizon, my biggest hope is to solve my issues with eating and constant dieting before it arrives.
Even if I do not reach my ultimate goal, I want to stay with this, and not go back to dieting, NO. MATTER. WHAT.
