How To Conquer Disordered Eating

How to conquer disordered eatingIt’s rare when an article actually gets it right about how to conquer disordered eating, but this one is perfect:

There is a list of six lessons and it’s a good idea to go over to their site and read the whole story. It was very helpful to me.

  • Comparing yourself to others only sets you back.
  • Your relationship to food mirrors your relationship to your life.
  • You will never be done.
  • Perfectionism derails progress.
  • You are really, truly good enough—just as you are.
  • Disordered eating is your soul desperately crying out for help.

Each person has a different journey when they are recovering from disordered eating. For me, issues of control, envy, perfectionism, fear, expectations, judgment of others and many other faults came up when I worked through my program. Knowing that these problems with my thinking have caused me to overeat for years, really helped me. I learned to reprogram my thoughts and have had wonderful success.

If you want what I have, find the nearest Overeater’s Anonymous meeting, get a sponsor, do everything they say and keep coming to meetings.

Overeater’s Anonymous does not endorse anything on this entry or blog. I speak only of my personal experience and not for OA as a whole.
