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.
ALL chicks are welcome -- no one is excluded! If you are trying to lose weight, not trying, maintaining, recovering from an eating disorder, in the midst of one, or have ANY kind of problem with food, we would love to have you join us!!
Over two weeks binge free! And I hear ya Tater about classes being good for keeping oneself distracted! I have classes and I'm also studying for my Praxis test that I'm taking in July so focusing on those things are really keeping my mind off of "When can I eat again?"
I've been having that "fat" feeling recently though (which means TOM is probably around the corner) and I hate, hate, hate feeling like this when I haven't done anything to deserve it!
In other news, I decided to run outside yesterday and I did 3.25 miles in 40 minutes! I think my endurance surprised me, haha. And I actually liked it. I run on the treadmill in the gym, but I don't enjoy it as much because it's so monotonous. I might run outside more often!
I hope everyone starts the week off right!

Today I am finally forcing myself out of this pit I've allowed myself to slip into. And I'm going to ignore the little voice in my head telling me it's too late to post here, or that no one wants me to. I haven't exactly been binging the last few weeks, but my nutrition is totally screwed up and I've eaten NOTHING but junk. I'm not sure I've had more than a few servings of vegetables. Uhg.
I'm moving across the country this week, I still have bunches of stuff to pack and the movers are coming tomorrow. And my husband and I leave for the three day trip Wednesday morning. I'm stressed, depressed, excited, and exhausted.
I'm afraid I may have gained weight over the past month or so, but I can't worry about that now. I just have to get my eating somewhere back on track so I can feel a little better again.

I'm on day 2.
Not doing great food wise, but doing alright. I wrote down a meal plan for the week, but today I didn't stick with it.
Last night I went for a run and I felt so good afterwards. I'll go over to a friend's appartment to study later and afterwards I'm going to go running again.
I have not been this awful in a LONG time (was bad Friday night through Sunday night).
Part of it was watching my hubby 'fat load' in prep for a diet, part of it was stress, part of it was for NO REASON.
I feel awful physically and emotionally from it, trying to just dust myself off.
stayed at my friends too long. It was already dark outside when I came back to my appartment, so I decided not to run. I wouldn't have felt safe.
Then I started eating mindlessly, and almost binged... but I was able to stop myself. Would have been to bad to start over on day 1 again tomorrow.
I'll try and sqeeze in a short run before leaving for classes tomorrow.

I woke up at 5.30am and was out of the building 10minutes later for a morning run, then had my shower and now having breakfast and it feels so good! I never ever went for a run in the morning before, always did it in the afternoon or in the evening. I thought it would make me tired, but it actually woke me up! I feel so totally energized and motivated!
peachykeen, thanks for your note! I wish I was able to just go for a run whenever I feel the urge to binge. I might even try, since I cannot concentrate anyways when feeling bingey. It definitely distracts.
