      Hi there, I was wondering if anyone shared the same or similar experience. For as long as I can remember I have wanted to be fit and healthy ( I am overweight and   do need to loose weight for health reasons) The problem being is i make constant lists and plans on eating schedules, exercise plans, I manage to make a plan but then decide it’s not good enough and I start all over again. I feel anxious if I can’t schedule in exercise at the same time every day. Ultimately I am never able to start my plan because it’s never quite good enough. It’s taken over my life, in the past I have been known to stay home or have a day off work to make lists or plans. It’s a bit like perfectionism, rumination and eating disorder all in one. I am awaiting support from the doctor, but it would be good to hear of anyone has had a similar experience.
