Renée, yes your comments are so inspirational! “Feeling the desire won’t hurt me” and reminding us to use the MP3! And stopping in your tracks when the AD does not go away and engaging in self-care, going to a quiet place and pulling out the MP3 tool.
I appreciate Sian’s comment—Pavlov’s dogs were able to reverse their response to the bell and we can too!
Louise, thanks for insight about choosing to feel and experience the AD vs. eating/not eating. Again, the MP3 has value for us!
Liz, I also am so good at justifying why I need to give in to my AD. I could become weak or pass out from lack of food!
I have been struggling the last few days. Thanks for this thread Anna and ALL the comments!
