Welcome to Cup or Cone!

Posted: December 7, 2011 in Uncategorized

When I was a little girl I used to love ice-cream.  The ice-cream shop was a thing of wonder and did I ever enjoy those waffle cones – the more chocolate, the better.  As I grew older, ice-cream became a thing of comfort for me and one day that all changed.  When I learned what calories and fat and sugar were and how I was supposed to look a certain way it all changed.  And then I found myself either avoiding ice-cream altogether or limiting it to sorbet in a cup.  So what happened to that girl who couldn’t get enough of the waffle cones dipped in chocolate?  Now, a couple of years into recovery from NP Bulimia, I can frame situations with a cup or cone mentality.  Am I restricting myself? Am I exercising because I feel guilty or because I really want to?  It’s all about finding balance and taking recovery a day at a time.  I no longer feel guilty choosing the cone, and everyday I get closer to choosing the cone a little bit more.
