This is a really useful post for me today. I think I have been having “conversations within the limbic system all day today“. There has been one cue after another for my addictive desire. I think I may also have been using a stern parental voice. I am now reminding myself that I have a choice and I have chosen to aim to eat less. I could eat ice cream or muffins but I am choosing not to right now and I can always choose differently later. I am a Lille tired today and so the addictive mindset is kicking in with associations between tiredness and overeating. So it feels tough but I guess this is a hood day to get some practice in. Reading this thread has helped me take a moment to reflect.
