    Ow, mental health and food issues – so relatable. I’ve been a binge eater most of my life – eating till I could to beat all the sadness. But I’ve really worked hard to develop a healthy relationship with food and it’s worked. And like you I know that having a treat once in a while won’t make me obese. 🤗❤️

      I had a little giggle reading your comment because that is very relatable! Unfortunately not as fun living it, but at least you know you aren’t the only one who has such a reaction. Let’s make this thing so small that it gets squashed in the face!

    This is so relatable, in a way that I never thought of before. I know that I generally look to food to make myself feel better… Like if I’m having a particularly tough day, looking forward to a treat will often lift my mood but that treat ends up only making me feel bad about myself so I absolutely understand the vicious cycle of food + depression = bad combo… Glad you wrote about this and are able to reframe food differently so that it’s no longer the major focus and it’s no longer based on your mental status.

    Thank god for people like you talking about eating disorder so openly.

    For a large chunk of my life I wasn’t aware that it was even a thing. It was way, way off my radar. Each day I am educating myself more on eating disorder and how it can be triggered by depression. It’s really important that we do that.

    Thank you for sharing.
    How do you feel when it comes to trying new foods?
    I think when you overthink about particular food too much it makes it worse.
    I think for myself being a fussy eater has hindered my diet. And when I try to eat better the cravings kick in.
    I eat less now than before, but I’m less active so weight ain’t matching up.
    I try not to buy indulging foods, as I know how I am.

I'd love to read your thoughts on this!
