When food plans change or become messy, the mess goes directly directly into my brain and stress level skyrockets. I depend on my food to be predictable, so my life revolves around recovery instead of food.
But then life happens. People get stuck in traffic. Compulsive eaters have to wait for dinner. I improvise by eating abstinent snack and doing 10th step with sponsor.
That has helped immensely. So now the mess is tolerable instead of overwhelming.
Thank you, Mama B.
