Hi everyone!! Welcome to the binge free challenge!! You can come in here and post your weekly successes and struggles and keep track of your binge free days. You can also vent about anything and everything you feel like getting out. We are here to share our feelings and to encourage and inspire each other. No negativity! We are strong chicks and I KNOW we all can do this!! And we don't have to do it alone, we have each other to get us through the rough times.

Let's have an awesome week!!

Today is Day 1 again. But. I don't feel bad about it. It was such a fun time upta camp and I didn't all out binge, just ate mindlessly and ate far far too much sugar. Physically I am tired from too much sun, sugar, nicotine and lack of sleep. And I know that I have to detox again. But I also know that I CAN detox again. So I will. Today is going to be a very good food day. Lots of water. Work in the garden some. It's going to be Day 1 but it's not going to be hard or depressing or a sign of failure. It's just going to be Day 1.

I need this challenge. I am only just beginning to acknowledge that I have a food addiction. Admitting this and having somewhere to go to be accountable to deal with it is HUGE.

I just had a bumpy weekend after six good weeks so this is...DAY 1

I just learned how deceptive my brain can be.

I decided to calculate how many calories my weekend binges were so I could see just how horribly awful they were. Both Saturday and Sunday were around 3,000 calories.

And do you know what my brain started doing? It tried to tell me that wasn't really so bad. It tried to tell me that I can eat up to 2,200 calories a day to maintain my weight (according to online calculators)...so another 800 wasn't that huge of deal.

Bad brain. Bad bad bad. Shut up.

Day 21 today! I struggled a bit yesterday, but pushed through and was happy to have made healthy choices. And I don't feel sick like I would have had I binged!

I had a huge binge today (actually the past 10 days have been one enormous binge), followed by a big old cry after catching sight of myself in the mirror. I can't understand why I binge when it makes me feel so bad about myself! I'm determined to get back to my diet starting from NOW! I'm hoping that coming here will give me something to hold myself accountable to. I'm scared that if I don't stop my binge eating now it's just going to escalate and stop me ever having a healthy relationship with food.

I'm over a week binge-free now. And, I've surprised myself by managing to visit and have meals with friends, indulge a little yet stay on plan, not binge, AND not feel deprived. I'm feeling pleased, shocked, and a bit at a loss as to why I managed to make it through the BBQs this weekend without binging. I couldn't even plan ahead because I didn't know what was being served.

I think I need to take some time and write down the decisions I made, how I was able to make them, and what the consequences were. I feel like so often I focus on what I did wrong and I never think about or analyze times when I've made healthy, smart choices. No wonder my screw-ups are so often at the front of my mind! They're all I think about!

So, here's to another binge-free week ladies! Good luck!

Starting day 2.
I plan on going to the library instead of learning at home tonight. No food allowed in there. And when I come back home I can actually relax and maybe get to bed a little earlier. I feel so tired.
