I don't think I've really "binged" since starting my calorie-counting plan, but it feels like some days are really a battle to not go far over my allotted calories, to just not log something, to take a larger helping than I should. It's so painfully frustrating at times. It's like telling myself "I can't have this" makes me want it SO much more.

Right now i have a ton of food in my dorm room -- probably 25,000 calories' worth -- and I'm proud of myself for not just eating this crap instead of going to a dining hall and eating real food (as I used to before starting my plan). But I still want it so much - the sorbet, the cookies, etc, etc. I've learned that staying off sugary carbs completely is the easiest way to keep from breaking my diet, but sugar is really the only thing I crave.

Oh, and of course the scale is plateaued. Of course. I haven't binged yet... but it's only a matter of time.

/Rant.

I am visiting with family, so no time to really check in, but I am still on track and completed day 33 yesterday.

Wish me luck for the rest of the week. Time with family seems to be a really big trigger for me.

Day 9 - Last night I made stir fry, tofu and brown rice for dinner, ate a TON of veggies and mentioned to my fiance like 3 times how good it felt to be full. Wasn't stuffed or uncomfortable just belly felt nice and full. Made me feel disordered in a way - and maybe I need to be fluffing my dinner more with veggies - Find myself eating just enough so that I'm not hungry (atleast that's as far as my 1500 cals/day will get me). I've ready Geneen Roth and she encourages experimenting with hunger/fullness levels to find your comfortable hunger/fullness level. Maybe I've been feeling deprived because I haven't been achieving my body's desired fullness level. Don't want to feel deprived and set myself up for a binge - I DON'T think that's going to happen because I'm upping my cals a bit today and tomorrow/Sat not aiming for any kind of deficit since I have a 1/2 on Sunday.

Have a great day ladies.

Spring - I know family gatherings are triggers for me because they REVOLVE around food. My DF always says that he's amazed my family isn't big because of how obsessed we are with food :P

Lackadaisy - I know how hard college is - I'm pretty sure my freshman was my heaviest adult point. I know sugary carbs are my downfall too.

urg... not good...not good at all... had two pre-op meetings at different hospitals yesterday (sinus surgery looming on 11 mar) and managed to hit every crappy food place between the two... and then, worse still, after my workout with my trainer, i ate a full (yet healthy) dinner and when my bf left for the night managed to binge AGAIN!

ended up going to bed in tears, sobbing, completely defeated... and then i couldnt sleep... so here i am, at work, totally exhausted. i have to teach a spinning class in 30 min and feel like a hypocrit (ikes, i cannot spell either!)

enough 'bad self' talk... i reached my max weight range this morning so i have nowhere to go but "down" ...

i am recommitting to myself that i can do this... being tired and scared are NOT acceptable reasons to put my body through this. there are NO acceptable reasons!

I know i am only accountable to myself but knowing I just told you all and that you will want to see me back tomorrow earning day 2 just makes me want to try that much harder....

today I am earning day 1...today WILL BE day 1

Day 19. Been an interesting week, no binge urges at all, I was saying to myself all week, if I want a day off (my excuse to binge.. eckkk) I could, but then I look at the food and think, nah I don't want it.
