I had a really rough morning with my kids today, and my nerves are wound up. This is the situation where I'm most likely to overeat-- when I just need to relax and calm down. The cereal is calling me from the pantry.

I just wanted to pop in to say, I am through with breakfast, and will not eat again until lunch. I will not binge because it ALWAYS makes me feel worse physically and emotionally. I will not trade feeling better for a few minutes, for feeling worse for the rest of the day.

I am staying on plan today. I will not give in to my emotions.

Ah, Heck, ThinPossible --- you know that you don't really want to binge! That is just another one of those insidious little mind games that Fat Pounds run on us. What you REALLY want is a break from your kids -- been there, done that, got the T-shirt and it has baby spit on it! :lol:

I can't actually reach through the computer terminal to pull you out for a mini-vacation, but I can book you on a complete 4 minute 27 second trip to silly! And it is thematically correct!

The song? "I ran (so far away)" by A Flock of Seagulls (which you are undoubtedly way too young to have heard of).

The company you will be keeping? Kudjo24, who is a cute teen with sunglasses and a girlfriend with a video camera.

Just click on the YouTube link, turn up the volume and invite the kiddies to dance along. 4 minutes and 27 seconds from now, after you have silly-danced all over your kitchen, you will feel a lot less like binging! http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=olC0d7qjdMc&feature=related

(Or that is the theory....)

Thanks Nunima, love Flock of Seagulls (too young, ha, try 42!) That was very helpful. Kids are all in school now, going to try to do something fun, or at least productive.

Thanks everybody!

I think it is so important that we stop and identify our "binge" moments. I got a cold last week. That's a classic, "Things were going so well, until I got sick" moment for me. Instead I told all my family & friends that I was going to stay on plan despite being sick...and I did. If I hadn't announced the potential binge, then I might nit have made it through.

Congrats on identifying a tough spot and making it through!!! :carrot:

If you are stressed and have some time to kill maybe try doing something for you... and only you. :) A nice bubble bath with candles? Watch a fun comedy? Work on a hobby that you never seem to have time for?

Well done for posting instead of bingeing... I went from Christmas to last week without a serious binge and really thought I'd broken the habit, but last weekend I was really down and ended up bingeing, and then again today :( That's why I joined here, I really felt that I needed some support. Good luck to everyone trying to change their attitude towards food...it's not easy but we can do it!

I had a heck of a time today AND MY HUSBAND JUST BROUGHT HOME COOKIES :mad::mad::mad:

Whatever.

I told him no one could have a cookie until I go upstairs.

I think it's National Torment Me Day ;)
