I'm in ... again ... I did really good today. Now if I could do what I did today for the rest of the month I might actually lose some weight.

I went straight to a plateu(sp) and drinking all kinds of water won't break it..so I'll wait it out.

Have a Happy Bingefree Week All.

Okay I'm here and so far I've been binge free for 3 days now, last Friday I went totally crazy and binged for about an hour straight. But I didn't let it last and hopped on my exercise bike for an hour.

Well day 6 is almost over. If I make it tomorrow too, that will be a whole week, and it's been AGES since I had A WHOLE BINGE FREE WEEK.

jendiet, yes I think it is because I feel lonely... but I feel lonely very easily, but I know that I have to be alone at times and that's something I have to get used to, instead of making food my company. And yay on your binge free days AND the A in biology!! ^^ I can never get biology, it's so confusing, so I really admire you.

so its been a few days, last thursday was my last binge. I was happy today, I had a bad case of hungries, and was working, but managed to get a nice bran muffin and leave the sticky baked goods alone. Now it probably had lots of calories, but nothing like the cinnamon buns or a piece of pie, and there was some nutritional value.
best choice if not perfect. Then when I could get lunch ate a sensible chicken dish.
Had asnack when I got home from work, and now supper.
Going for a walk in a bit to avoid eating again.

Wardhog, what are we going to plan to make next weekend binge free for you? How can we help. You were doing great for a bit, but the binge monkey is hitting you hard these days.

Wormwood doll, keep up the good work. hope the blues aren't getting to you.
Have a good week everyone

yay! Another binge free day...I wish I could say I was happy about my exercise routine..

I had sooo many opportunities to binge today...I had a chem report due..and it was majorly stressing me out--but i didn't binge...

I was 2 lbs heavier on the scale today than yesterday (this is TRUE waterweight from working out because my fat was down 1% and my water was up)...I still could have thrown a binge pitty party over it though.

I missed class because I slept in...DOH! could have punished myself with a binge...+

I went to chem lab pretty hungry, but ate a fiber one bar and came back STARVING...when I got home I could have dived into all kinds of things..but I ate 2 egg rolls and was satisfied!

then I was home alone and stressed and in pain.(ovulation pain--it HURTS)..and I still didn't binge...

of course since my abdomen hurts so much--I don't want to eat much...that helped in a way...

Good choice fatmad! You did the right thing, it wasn't perfect, but it was better!

Ida, well, just come to 3fatchicks if you are lonely...we are here to support...and thanks for the admiration..I love biology..so it's easy for me...I'm sure you are great at something that I should admire you for!

stellart--hooray for the weight loss and binge freedom!

good job paniana!

dand--I have been on an hour straight binge b4...let me tell you no fun...can I suggest something? Usually when I am THAT bad..I am really internalizing something and just frankly pissed off...if you feel the urge to binge again..try writing down your feelings AND why you think the food will help.

Jennicole-I've eaten massive amt of baked goodies before--so I feel your pain..STAY away..don't even entertain it...let THEM eat it...I like the idea of dumping salt in it though..heh.

Good day for no binging. Back pain was so bad that I felt sick. So ate nothing but bland foods and stayed on the couch. Tummy is still somewhat icky, so tomorrow will definitely be binge free also.

That will mean 3 days no binging. I find that drinking alot of water really helps me.

Sparrow.. Try the 10 minute Workout Videos. My BF downloaded them for me. You can mix up all the workouts. There's cardio, yoga and musclebuilding. You do 3 of each every day... you just pick the section from each of the three you want and do it.

congrats on the binge free day...

Ok, today is a very STRESSFUL day..so I will remember that my fellow binge free...challengers are trying just as hard as me today...

My strategy: Don't go hungry. Don't let bf talk me into going out to eat somewhere where I can't control my eating (buffets are particulary bad). Don't use food for comfort.log my points.

Hope everyone has a binge free day!

Day 11 - go me! I have no idea why I've lasted this long.

I put on about 5 lbs. during my recovery period after my surgery and 3 lbs. have budged since I've gotten the okay to workout again (03/06). The 3 lbs keeps fluctuating between 3 and 4 lbs., but doesn't want to seem to go below that. Argh! It's so frustrating. Before surgery I fluctuated a lot - between 135 and 140 pretty much every day. This makes me think it had a lot to do with water weight. So, I suppose that what I put on during surgery was actual weigh - great

Given all of that I should have given up already, but for some reason I keep getting up in the morning, working out, eating right (mostly), and NOT bingeing. Hopefully, it'll make a difference....

Hooray for you paniana...

Harris--hang in there. You CAN do it..stay away from trigger foods...and write down feelings before you binge.

I am REALLY hungry right now, and I got a lot of things on my mind..but I'm going to eat some egg rolls...and get my stuff organized...

My bf might want to go out to eat knowing him..so I am mentally prepared for it..here's where the flex points come in right?
