My non b/p goal was to have positive interactions with three different people per day, and also to complete my exercise goals. I can say that I did the exercise goal with flying colors, even on the days I binged. And I did make an effort to complete the positive interaction goal, but I didn't.
How do I have so few friends? To complete my goal, a positive interaction can take as little as a minute, for example if I talk to someone while climbing the stairs to my dorm. So why can't I get three?
One reason could be that I don't count my boyfriend and my best friend, because I'm guaranteed to talk to them every day. I need more interaction than them, which is why I don't count them, even though time spent with them is great.
I've been keeping a behavior calendar though, and each day I write down the names of people I have positive interactions with. On days when I don't meet the positive interaction goal, I'm more likely to binge and purge.
So my goal for this week is to really put myself out there and talk to people I don't know so well to get in those positive interactions.
Also to not weigh myself.
What are your goals?
