I try to focus on:
- Acceptance of food as mainly fuel and not escape from something else. That doesn't include indulgences at holidays, celebrations, etc., it's the stress/emotional eating. But I do pretty much eat what I want when I want it. I guess it's intuitive eating? Whatever you want to label it, it boils down to me eating when I'm hungry (still following my personal number one band rule of portion size) and doing a quick check if what I am hungry for is not the most healthiest of choices to make sure it's not to avoid a feeling.
- Accepting myself - being "enough"; stopping negative self talk; and focusing on the positive of my own self perception.
- Divorcing the scale.
And on some days, I even find that it doesn't take any conscious thought at all. Ah, progress. : )
