as i have been thinking about dieting, juddd in particular, it has become more and more apparent to me that 'normal' people just eat when they want, what they want and don't gain weight. why is it that i lack this? why can't i eat normally? i know that i have serious problems in only having one chocolate or one bite of something, buying one donut doesn't seem like enough, it has to be one of those bags you get. why is that? why, psychologically can't i have a normal attitude to food? i am striving at the moment to eat like a 'normal' person on my juddd up days, to eat at mealtimes, have the odd biscuit, dessert if i go out for a meal, that kind of thing. but i honestly don't know if i'm going to be able to. does anyone else feel this way? this frustration when it seems so easy for so many people? a second nature in fact.
