Default Confession: I binged for 2 days

Oh man, do I feel awful. I'm here to confess and get this off my chest and move on.

I had guests from out of town staying with us. 10 additional people (two of whom were small children who screamed a lot and I have chronic daily migraines). We are a family of 4 so having that many people to cook and clean for was so hard on me. I had help from my in laws but it was really a lot to take.

They came Friday night and I was ok. I ate at maintenance which didn't really make me feel proud of myself but it was ok.

Then on Saturday, we had lunch out and I ordered a very boring salad with no dressing and I felt really deprived.

I hadn't slept well because of the crying kids and having to sleep on the couch so I was already depleted so Saturday night, I binged. I ate until I felt sick and the food was coming up to my throat.

Sunday, they were all leaving so I was so relieved and I vowed to eat on plan. Once they left, I was still so sleep deprived and the binging just lasted all day. I felt so sick and my mind wasn't working properly. I was in a daze.

I didn't sleep enough last night either because of how awful I felt from all the food but I have committed to getting back on track today. I am doing well so far but I know I'm at risk. Once I fall off track, it takes a lot to get me back on. The sad thing is that I was binge-free for more than 3 months. I'm NOT going to let this continue. It just isn't worth it at all.

Thanks so much for listening.

I don't have any deep words of wisdom or advice, just that it happens to the best of us. I hope you have some time to relax now

Thanks so much for your support. I've been on track all day and am already feeling so much better. I can't change the past so I just need to focus on the present and future. Again, thanks for the encouragement. I know the chicks here understand.

I can't wait to one day make it 3 months, that's a real accomplishment and I'm really envious of you for that. It must have been hard to have to face/deal with everyone still in the house on Sunday and act like everything is okay. Glad to hear you're doing better now.

You've addressed it so now you move on. You've come so far... Three months is a fantastic achievement, focus on that rather than 2 measly days!

Good luck and keep us posted!

Don't let one slip diminish your amazing accomplishment of 3 months binge free. That is terrific.

If you can go for three months without binging, then I KNOW you have the power to get yourself back on track and keep going. Keep on fighting

Wow--10 extra people! How did you survive? I semi-freak out when I have two people over for a weekend! I probably would have eaten nonstop the whole time.

As others have said, just move on from here. Remember: Progress is not linear. We may take five steps forward, two steps back, three steps forward, one step back, etc. We're still ultimately making progress, though.
