Hey Paris - I think the quicker that one embraces their feelings, the quicker one passes through them. Atleast that's what I've heard - I'm working on practicing that on a day to day basis - When I feel something I don't want to feel and find myself stuff it I almost intentionally try to bring it back up. Maybe spend a day just grieving, writing, crying, watching sad movies and just get that stuff out. I know journaling helps me a lot.

I've definitely used exercise in the past but it's hard to exercise when the feelings keep coming up. When my fiance broke up last year for 2 weeks, I got drunk that night and after that I didn't eat much. Used it as an excuse to diet essentially, and then we got back together... Just saying this because I know advice is easier said than done.

SUPER hugs and bottom line is BE GENTLE WITH YOURSELF

This is my official day 1 because I have done well after a morning binge every day this week and I didn't binge this am Instead I drank some tea, put on some music and cleaned my house while my youngest napped and the middle one played a video game.

Doing well and remaining steadfast in my promise to self to eat clean. Scale hasn't budged from 123.5lb which is irksome but it's better than gaining! I am not freaking out...just eating well and going to the gym a lot.

happytobeamom When's the surgery?! I hope and pray it all goes well. Didn't know you liked hot yoga...I discovered it last year and go to the Bikram studios here every once in a while. I find it oddly cleansing.

leblebi - Mar 11 is the 'big day' ... yup, scared as all get-out... I tried hot yoga once two weeks ago and think it is 'in order' for tomorrow to help me stretch and veg/calm down. i know exercise picks me up but yoga brings me down so maybe i need to look at doing more yoga?!?! hmmm... or maybe even just stretching every night to calm my brain...hmmm... i am so glad things are steadfast for you ! keep up that super positive attitude: visualize the scale moving and it will!

OK -- you'll be in my thoughts on the 11th

I don't like regular yoga at all but Bikram is very challenging to me -- guess it works different muscle groups and I am also (surprisingly) able to tune everything out for 90 minutes and focus on the poses and nothing else. What helps me calm down (which I learned in Bikram) is the savasana. Very simple but efficient -- even for someone like me whose mind is always racing. Lay down on your back; let your feet fall apart but heels touching; arms by your side, palms up; eyes open, but look down 45 degrees toward your toes almost. Then breathe in for 6 counts and exhale for 6 counts. After a while it becomes second nature. I do this for as long as I can (which as little as 3 minutes) and it works quite well. Very zen.

Day 15 for me longest without a binge since I can remember. I am eating a lot more protein and I think that it makes me feel fuller longer so takes the hunger trigger away!

Day 24 - And a WOOOSH! Was going to try to reconcile myself with whatever the scale said since last week I was up a pound (and based on my calorie calculations should have been down a pound). This AM I was down 3 pounds from last week which math wise is spot-on SO GRATEFUL. It's so hard to be dilligent in your efforts and then for the scale to go UP instead of DOWN.

Today is Friday, YAAAAY! And my fiance are planning a quiet night in which I am SO looking forward to. Going to make home made pizza, drink wine, hopefully work on our pre-marriage workbook and have a Jersey Shore marathon - <--- Don't judge

Jalsa - FANTASTIC JOB!

ladies it's AWESOME to see these numbers racking up

Day 11 done! Got a little too snacky yesterday, and went a little overboard on some cranberries and walnuts at lunch. But no binge, so that's good.

Great job, Sarahinbalance! And hooray on the whoosh -- very well deserved!

Today I have a very decadent lunch out for a work celebration, following my cupcakes that I am bringing. Normally I would treat myself a little bit, but since I've been a bit off track lately I'm going to be strict with myself. I need to build my momentum back up, and I am too vulnerable right now -- I think that if I let myself eat what I want, today could easily turn into an "oh well, might as well keep eating poorly" binge day. My plan will be to eat this healthy tuna dish that I found on the menu, and then no celebratory cupcake afterwards! If other people comment on it, I will say, I'm STUFFED, but I will probably grab one later in the afternoon." (and then I won't of course, but that'll be enough to deter them if they pressure me, as my coworkers often do.)

I am putting it down here as a promise to myself and to all of you -- I hope you all don't mind! And then I will come back later in the day or tomorrow AM to report how I did.

Yesterday was day 4 and it was a hard one to pull through but I did it and you know what? I'm not missing any limbs or a head or anything so I guess not bingeing is not going to kill me. It just feels like it sometimes.

Working on day 5.
