“What can I get away with?”–is this “really about weight-based motivation”?
If I’m being honest with myself, I guess it is. Which I hadn’t thought about!!
I think the morning after overeating, there’s a part of me that’s like, “well, my pants still fit and I haven’t gained weight (even if I have stopped weighing myself), so it can’t be too big of a problem!”.
Or, during the moment thinking to myself “how much can I eat without making it too big of a problem?”
I’m going to think about this. Thanks for bringing it up, Gillian.
