Because only a few shorts months ago those two bites of cake would have sent Claudia into a spiral of shame and guilt.
She'd beat herself up.
Wonder why she couldn't keep it together.
Berate her will power and decision making and then decide that she'd try again tomorrow.
Once she'd given up, her day would be spent seeking out and filling herself with every bit of sugar she could find, convinced that after today, she'd never do it again.
Claudia would finish that cake standing over the kitchen sink before leaving for work (forget the green smoothie!), eat ALL the cookies in the break room but no lunch, more coffee and candy in the afternoon and then likely a dinner of processed carbs and wine in front of the tv. She'd be exhausted and grumpy and her digestion would be a mess but she'd go to bed knowing that tomorrow would be better.....until it wasn't. She blame sugar addiction and her mom and her genetics. She'd loathe women who didn't seem to care about whether or not they ate the lunchroom treats...women who seemed able to maintain their weight effortlessly, because WHY WAS LIFE SO UNFAIR????
She loathed those women until she became one of them.
When she finally took the leap and learned about the psychology of eating and why her efforts were actually making everything WORSE...she was able to let go of the story that she was "just one of those women" addicted to food with no self-control and she become the woman she wanted to be.
Able to eat two bites of birthday cake and FORGET ABOUT IT.
Take the leap with me???
