Oh I loved your post Renee. I am a ‘secret eater’ too, and have been known to stockpile chocolate in my bedroom when visitors are due so that I can eat it in secret rather than when my visitors are present. You are so right that the secrecy and ‘getting away with it’ is so much a part of the addictive desire.
Sorry you have had it tough Julie. I am struggling a bit today,and I know this is because my compliant mind has interpreted some of the nutritional advice on last night’s webinar as ‘instructions to follow’. My AD has been savage today, and I haven’t always managed to work through it, so I know how you feel.
