So as promised here I am with an update. It has been a year I think since I posted my first review and in that time I have come a long long way. With the help of the "inner conversations" and "nurturing limits" skills from this book I am able to go weeks without a binge and am able to regulate my emotions and meet my needs effectively. This is from a starting place of bingeing on a daily basis and struggling constantly with my emotions. I gave up dieting a good few years ago since I knew it was a major cause of binge eating but it was the emotional eating that I had issues with. I still have binges and I understand that it will take a while to eliminate this completely especially since I have relied on food for coping for over 10 years. Nevertheless I am making imense progress and even when I do binge I can identify the underlying reason that led me to binge and the reasons why I did it. This helps me to come with plans to deal with the same situation in the future. I measure my progress and success by the number of days that I stay binge free and thats what matters the most to me but for those that are interested in numbers I can tell you that I have gone from a UK dress size 18/20 down to a 14.
Where do i begin? In my never ending search to overcome my binge eating and emotional eating habits and to reduce my weight i have read books accross the spectrum from diet books to books on intuitive eating and those treating overeating as addiction. In all that i have read i have never come across any advice that effectively helped me to deal with my emotions without turning to food or in fact how to deal with emotions at all.Read more ›
Then it shifted gear, into the world of CBT. It's a world we've all come to know, and there are thousands of psychologists ringing that bell and churning out books on how you can reframe any problem by exposing the core belief and challenging it with a more rational, positive response etc.Read more ›
I have always tended to see the glass as half empty; my wife sees it as half full. I'm learning, from this book, how to deal with my pessimistic, self-defeating thoughts in a constructive way. My wife has always thought that I might have some mild depression, and in part 2 of the book, the author discusses brain chemistry imbalances and this fit me to a tee. So I plan to look into a holistic way of correcting my brain chemicals. I definitely need to exercise more--there are some great suggestions covering this as well. Oh, and the part about getting enough sleep--well, I need to work on that also, since I don't sleep more that 6 hours each night.
My wife loves this book and has written her own review, but she loves it even more because it has helped me make some changes she couldn't motivate me to make in the past (and I couldn't motivate myself to make.) I guess hearing it from a different source makes it hit home in a different way.Read more ›
