It's ok to be where you are now, thinking your current thoughts, doing what works for you now, and to ease into changes as you're ready and willing. Trust is built with time, practice, and baby steps. It's like the difference between taking swimming lessons and being pushed into the deep end. Maybe they accomplish the same thing, but gaining confidence over weeks and months is far less traumatic. When you're ready, loosen up one aspect of your eating and see how it goes, then another. You'll still get where you're going and can feel confident in the process and the results.

Thank you! I so badly needed to read this. I'm trying hard to make baby steps and it really ls like 2 steps forward, 1 step back. I can't fathom tackling exercise, food fears, and puutting myself out there to the world all at one time. It's exhausting and terribly scary. I like the idea of easing into changes as you're ready and willing. I don't think I'm going to gain any confidence or self-trust by overhauling everything at one time. I don't even think I could do that right now anyway.
