First off, thankyou for the fantastic advice on my last post about my friend. I am taking the advice on board and am just going to listen to her when she needs me and not try and convince her to feel something else, because that wouldn't work. Thankyou lovelies! I'll keep you updated.
For a little less than a week I've been struggling with overeating. Now as much aas I worry about the calories, the main reason I worry about overeating is the effect it has on my emotions and my sleep. I get ratty, anxious, hyper, then get sugar lows etc etc. Then I'm so hyper I can't sleep. Then the next day I feel so sluggish. I feel it's the same as when I undereat, the same emtional crap. SO what do we do? I don't know whether to let it 'ride out' or put my mind in to restrict mode just to control my eating NOT to over restrict. I find my overeating problem harder to admit to than when I restrict.Js overeating linked in any way to PMS? I think this is because in a weird messed up way that girls are jealous if you can go without evening, but are disgusted if you eat too much. I think my parents would actually prefer it if I underate a little than if I overate.
What do you think about the stigma (correct word?) around overeating compared to undereating.
My mood has taken a total dip since the overeating period began. But even though I FEEL low, I'm trying to THINK positive.
