What to Do When Going Out to Eat is Stressful

Going out to eat used to send me into a panic. Here is how the situation usually panned out: 1. I knew I had dinner plans, so I would try not to eat that much during the day because I wanted to save up the calories and “splurge” at dinner. I was usually so worried about keeping my food in control at dinner (i.e. not binging), that I was anxious about it all day (and usually ended up overeating at dinner) OR 2.

When you’re obsessed with controlling your food intake, body size, and the number on the scale, the concept of “eating what you want” sounds foreign, frightening, and downright impossible.  We are convinced that if we allow ourselves to freely choose what we want to eat, we will inevitably gain 10, 15, 20 pounds. You think if you eat what you really want, you’ll just get fat! Our thoughts go something like this: If I eat what I want, my clothes will no longer fit.

Why Weight?

For so many years, I equated achieving my ideal weight with achieving happiness. I believed they were synonymous. If I could just reach my perfect weight, hold on to it and never let it go, than I would finally be content.
