Meal Plans-Who knew I liked fruit!

Half ass trying to do meal plans but actually eating real food.... My compromise because Im just not ready to let go.....I haven't eaten fruit in 20 years easy. I wouldn't eat it because I couldn't calculate the exact amount. I don't put anything in my mouth without knowing exactly the amount of calories..... I got a big bowl of fruit with cheesecake yogurt on top. It tasted so good until about ten minutes later when I started freaking out about eating it.... I resisted purging.......My therapist joked "I don't care if all you eat is fruit. As long as your eating real food and actually eating every day in healthy amounts"...........Slow process to heal.....

I'm glad you were able to resist the temptation to purge, IceFishn.

It's such a long road and you're on it and working it. (((hugs)))

I hope others here will share their own struggles with adding back foods.

I have the opposite issue, because on fruit there's no calorie count staring at me so I can pretend it doesn't matter/count. Of course, as soon as I inadvertently learn how many calories a fruit contains, I can't eat it any more. Please nobody tell me what's in strawberries or grapefruit because I'm enjoying them right now.
