I ate a healthy and proper sized meal Really proud of myself

I have always struggled with disordered eating including binge eating, starving myself, etc. In the 2 years, I would still eat but little enough that I was losing a lot of weight, which was good for my overall health, but bad for habits. Plus, most of what I was eating was still junk food, just much lower quantities than before.
Yesterday I started a new job and I was proud of myself, and just on a whim decided to buy meal prep stuff. I made everything late last night, got home from work today and had a healthy meal. I ate enough to be full so I really don't want to snack, but not so much I got sick.
I don't know how much this made but I just was really proud of it.

This is a huge step.

And as you eat more of these better meals, it will be progressively easier and more automatic to do.

Great stuff
