I've always had a problem with overeating, and I just started my diet a little over a week ago. I was feeling great about it (I'm doing calorie counting) and everything was going fabulously...
My friend came to see me at my lunch break at work and we got little mini pizzas, made and ate them, and then stuck around for my work's Rhubarb Fest in the break room. I don't even like rhubarb that much, but I certainly loved it today. ...a LOT. With ice cream.
I understand that a) this isn't as bad as it could be and b) everybody needs a little leeway in their diet, but my main problem with overeating (borderline binging) is that once I do it during the day, I feel like the rest of my day/week/diet is for nothing and completely done for. I've lost nine pounds (in Onederland!!!!! though not after today, bleh) and had a bunch of diet non-food incentives and tricks and things to keep me on track. And it worked for the first week, but suddenly my willpower crumbled.
So my question to you guys is this: how do you stop yourself from calling it quits after you rebound heavily? What do you say to yourself? Do you look at that fat picture one more time? Any help is appreciated - because I'm sure I'll do this more than once this summer (it's my main reason for diet failure). Thanks!
