Default Need to regain control

I have been feeling terrible these days =( School has been very very stressful as of late and as a result I have been overeating (~500 calories over every day for the past 2 weeks). While I really love food it's really stressing me out that I have lost control of my eating. My diet plan had been working pretty well and I was generally good at avoiding snacks (e.g. chocolate bars, muffins, croissants), but these days I've been eating those at large amounts at a time, even when I am consciously aware that I am full.

I am so disappointed in myself in so many ways... and am conscious of the additional weight that I've been putting on. =(

butterflywings has already given you the best piece of advice.

you've recognised what you're doing and why so treat tomorrow / today as a new day and get back on plan.

Hey conanedogawa,

don't be so down, school IS stressful. you've alot on your plate right now. if it's any consolation, 500 cals over your limit isn't all that bad. I've gone thousands of cals over, so 500 is just 'sort of ' bad for me. not the best , but definitely not the worst


just make a small goal, remember to pick foods you like, take a little time to just step back and breathe each day, and don't get down about it.
You're making an effort, and its a step in the right direction. Set back are part of the game, you just can't let them get to you.

Thanks for all the encouragement. I still haven't regained control yet *shame*

However, starting tomorrow I will not give in to unhealthy snacks again, and will pick up from where I left off 3 weeks ago (before I started binging every single day).

I am depressed, and by binging everyday I am feeling even more depressed. Life is very rough at the moment and things haven't been going that well. I really wish I could lose weight (so far from the binging I've already gained 6 pounds =( )

Hang in there! We look for progress, not perfection. Just stick with it and take one day at a time.

6 pounds in 3 weeks is not so bad.I know it feels like it to you but you can lose those pretty quickly by getting back on plan.I know how depressing this can be.You are not alone.Keep us posted on how you are doing.
