Default Finally...

...the second 10 pounds are gone!

I wanted to share that victory with you all--a small victory for some, but a big victory for me.

I also wanted to share something else that is going on with me. Last week, as I was eating my way through a whole box of sugar free ice cream bars, I finally admitted that I am a compulsive overeater and sugar addict. My problem is not solely a physical problem, but a spiritual and emotional problem. No matter what food plan I go on, unless I get to the root of my problem, I will never be free.

I have been attending Overeaters Anonymous meetings online and reading everything I can get my hands on. I also have a friend who is a 12 stepper for a different addiction who is supporting me. I am planning to attend a face to face meeting in my area soon, and am keeping my eyes and heart open for a sponsor who has the kind of recovery I want.

I have not binged in five days, and I have not had sugar since 4/27. I am grateful for every abstinent day.

I wanted to share this here because I consider the 100 lb Club to be my home, and its members to be my family.

Thank you for being on this journey with me. Much love to you all!

Congratulations on your 20 pound weightloss! That is incredible, don't doubt that!

As for the overeating and binging, it is VERY common. I get like that and I know plenty of people who have. You've recognized the problem and that is definitely the first step.

Good luck!

20 lbs GONE. History. Over and out. Done with. FOREVER. Oh Jen, this is FANTASTIC. What a great accomplishment. You are well on your way.

I too am/was/am a compulsive over eater. It's a lifelong condition, but it is a manageable one. With the proper tools and habits in place my "condition" is kept in check. So know that there is most definitely a way to live a healthy life with this "disease".

Congratulations, the second 10 is mega!!

I too am a recovering overeater ~ it is possible but it is also lifelong.

Here's something I never thought I'd do: had one of the bosses for a coffee-time meeting today, so bought some goooood cookies. He ate none, neither did I . After he left I ate 1, that was budgetted for the day. Not only did I wrap up the others and freeze them (I still need to have them out of sight) I was able to enjoy the cookie, really savour it - and observe that was one enough. No kidding, I meant it. I'm not boasting, I'm saying there's hope!

OMG my friend. You can do it! You ARE doing it!!!! That many days sugar free is HUGE. I too am a sugar addict so I know exactly how hard it is. I am so proud of you. This is a huge accomplishment and you should be shouting it from the rooftops

I can't WAIT for the next 10 lbs lost announcement from you. I have a feeling it will be soon

Oh Jen, that's so wonderful! It is a big victory.

That's how it comes off. 10 lbs here. Another 10 lbs there. That stuff adds up!

Exploring help with the overeating problem -- that is a victory, too. You're doing the right thing. You can and you will overcome it.

Thanks, y'all! I feel really good about my accomplishment so far, but I cannot rest on my laurels....that's when I get myself in trouble. I have to be ever vigilant.

I just love the support here! Thanks so much!

Congratulations, Jen! That is a huge accomplishment.

I'm also a sugar-a-holic and have emotional and spiritual baggage. I must constantly remind myself that this journey is not only about my physical health. My mental and spiritual health are also important.
