I really showed out last night >.<

The day started off good. I was eating OP and even though it was one of my days off from exercise, I did some yard work and house chores. I even got out of the house and went to Wal Mart where I bought me some new shirts and even a new mop, lol :D.

After getting home and having dinner with my bf, everything (food-wise anyway) went downhill. After dinner, over the course of the rest of the night prior to going to bed I ate - 2 small bags of hot peanuts, a bag of doritos (the one with 2 servings in it), a king size hershey bar and 2 TGIF quesadillas and I even drank 4 Bud Lights and I don't even drink!!...wtf? :|

Today I am very angry at myself and miserable :(

So why did you do it? Figuring that out is key to not doing it again.

Yes, try and figure out why it happened. Then forgive yourself and hop right back on your plan. One night of too much food won't cause you to gain weight....unless the stress of it causes you to keep eating for days. Hang on tight and get through today healthfully.

I agree with the others - why do you think you ate that much? It clearly wasn't for hunger. That can be a great step into keeping it from happening again!

Right now, I can't even wrap my head around eating and drinking that nor try to figure out the reasons why I did it. I am just so upset with myself :( >.< I would like to say it was me trying to be "normal" but that is a cop out and I won't use excuses. I did it and I need to deal with it but dang, it sure does suck majorly :( :( :(

It was just one night, and one binge. Feeling bad about it isn't truly constructive--the negativity and self-blaming won't move you forward. But, stepping back and taking an objective look at your reasons for binging can help.

The fact is that everyone is going to have bad days now and again. You've done so freakin fantastic however and one bad day is not going to change that. You can't dwell on the past.

Today is going to be a great day :)

You are a success! Don't be too hard on yourself. Just put a couple of OP days together and you'll feel better.

Sometimes I think there is no *why* and sometimes *for me* figuring out the why isn't the most important thing. Sometimes the *how* is more important.

Come up with a plan. How can you avoid doing it again?

You're right. I haven't sat and picked apart everything about last night but I know I wasn't upset or having any weird emotional thing going on. I just truly believe it is because I had the stuff available so I ate it :|. My plan is not to let anymore of that junk (at least not in those volumes) come into this house anymore >.<


Thanks for the advice and support, as always, I appreciate it so much more than I can put into words on the internet :hug:

I'm definitely a "how" rather than a "why" person too, sounds like you are right back on track to me!

Hey.. you had a fun night out! To me, anyways. Give it to yourself, don't regret it.... that makes it pointless if you do (and what's the point of consuming those calories unless you had fun)... but don't do it all the time. I allow myself a night like this like once a month or so. And it hasn't hindered anything for me, weight loss wise. :shrug: My metabolism can handle it, I rarely gain more than a day or two of water weight and I'm back down to my normal or lower.

We're humans... not robots! The trick to it, though, is not allowing this to become the norm.

Good luck... and quit bein so hard on yourself! You've come a long way... I KNOW you won't let yourself slip out of control... you've worked TOO hard for this and love your new body/life too much!

Yesterday I did just about the very same thing (except for the drinking). I don't really know why either. I was so good over the weekend, stayed right on plan. I can't remember the last time I ate so much in one day! It was all the good healthy stuff I keep around, just waaaaay too much of it!

But, you know what? I got a little sick from overindulging (I think it was the 4 servings of 'healthy' cereal that tipped me in that direction). I didn't like that at all! So, I'm going to worry less about the 'why' and remember that sick feeling the next time I see myself headed in that direction ;)

I can also say, that my worst these days is nothing compared to the way I used to live my life on a routine basis. I bet you can say the same thing. We fall and we get right back up. This is NOT normal behavior for us anymore. It's just a bump on the road. Remember, today is a new day!

Be encouraged ;)

You are so right. I have not added up the calories yet but before I started my journey, a typical day for me was 4500-5000 calories of the unhealthiest, greasiest foods I could find.

How were you eating when you were taking a break? You were maintaining right? It seems to me you just have some killer cravings to power through. You KNOW this already, so it seems silly me telling you, but if you can just a day or two of clean eating under your belt, it will be easy to say "no" to all that. You know you won't want it, though it's hard to remember that when you're in the throws of it.

Stay strong! You can and HAVE done this!! Brush yourself off an start again right now, this very minute. Remember what it felt like when food did not control you? You can have that again. :)
