All or Nothing Mentality

The all or nothing mentality with food... Exercise... Balance, etc. Is anyone else struggling with this??

Hi NelAli!

Hi NelAli!

I can definitely relate to that mindset, particularly when it comes to balance. In my worst times throughout high school I wouldn't forgive myself for eating, no matter the smallest amount, during a streak of not eating so I would then binge. I thought, might as well since I already "ruined" my day. It took me many years to move past this negative thought process and strike a balance between eating at a healthy pace and keeping a positive mindset about food at the same time, so you are not alone! The road to recovery is full of bumps, twists, and turns, but staying positive is the key.
