I decided to watch the stop overeating program in order to stop periods of binge eating that I have.
I am still having a hard time allowing urges. I seem to be missing the ability to pause and whenever I hear my brain tells me it needs it or wants it, it feels as if I have to obey the thought immediately.
I then usually go out and buy numerous cookies or donuts, not one or two, but several that will keep me for the day. Then when I get home I notice that I still have the option to throw them away and manage my mind but then a new thought comes up that says:
I am not going to throw all this to the trash now, it’s such a waste, I may as well eat it and start tomorrow.
Once I already bought the off protocol food, what thoughts can you suggest to counteract this one above?
