So, naturally, I’m attempting to follow the meal plan designed for me in my Eating Disorders Program right down to every teaspoon, gram, ounce and millilitre.
I am trying to eyeball my portions, but my eyeballs are slow learners.
Plus the stresses of my life make this precarious…
I keep forgetting that I don’t have to be perfect. No one expects perfection.
I miss the support and camaraderie of the other patients in my group plus the expertise and advice from all the psychiatric, psychological, nutritional and social work staff who were always there for us, watching us, keeping us on track and caring about us.
Now, I’m doing everything by myself…
All my meals were supplied for me, with the exception of my breakfast.
By myself, alone, it’s a huge challenge to stick to this meal plan, which involves eating a wide variety of foods (anything, including my forbidden foods) at five specific times and in specific quantities.
