Gillian, I just re-watched the introductory webinar and the idea of eating any of the foods that trigger binges for me is terrifying! I am having a fear response just thinking about it. My heart is racing and I feel ready to take “flight”! Not that I want to drop out of this course, but like I need to run a mile!
I guess I’m afraid of losing all the hard work I’ve done to get off those trigger foods, and that I’ll never stop eating them if I start. This is why in 12 step programs they say “I’m powerless over this_____”. And I have felt that way before with binges. Please tell me I don’t have to eat sweets if I don’t want to!
