Anyone else measure what they eat, eat exactly the same things every day....?
I'm 5'4", 109 lbs, so a little bit underweight. In college I was maybe 105, but that's the thinnest I've been. My big problem is that I HAVE TO eat the same things every day, like nonfat yogurt, a certain flavor english muffin, etc. Everything is low or non fat. I also exercise five times a week and when I'm finished, I mark down that I exercised on my calendar. I used to do this so I'd keep track of how many times that week, but now it just makes no sense anymore (I can easily remember what days to take off from workouts). But I just have to do it.
I've done all this for years, but I'm sick of it and it is starting to affect my day to day life. I avoid lunches with people so I can stay home and eat my 'safe' lunch.
Do other people here do this kind of thing too? If you did break out of these habits, how did you do it?
I'm 33 now, have been living like this since I was 18 or so. I was recently diagnosed with anxiety/depression, so my therapist has touched on the eating topic but we are working on other big issues first. I'm also taking Lexapro.
Thanks for any advice from those who have a similar situation (or those whose situations are a little different too! I'm grateful for all advice!).
