Just as I hit my first goal, I binge. Big. Two Days in a row.

Default Just as I hit my first goal, I binge. Big. Two Days in a row.

I'm so upset at myself. I finally hit 150-my first milestone-and BAM! I get stressed out this week over financial issues and what do I do? Ice cream (full fat) a hamburger, two burritos, BLT (with turkey bacon and light mayo, but I digress), etc, etc....all within two days, going over my daily calorie intake by about 400 each day. I'm so upset at myself. I KNOW overeating doesn't help my stress issues, it only makes me feel worse. I hope I didn't just regain the 12 lbs I spent three weeks working my *** off to lose. I feel like such an idiot... :[

Big hugs! I struggle with this too. Anytime I have stress it's my fall back, sometimes I resist sometimes I don't. It's especially strong if I've hit a new milestone or new low weight.

I'm going to give you some advice that I myself struggle immensely to take, don't be so hard on yourself. Just get back to it. It happens! It's not the end of the world nor does it mean you've failed! We are works in progress!

Thank you, LockItUp. Normally this is where I say, "See? I am weak." and I give up, but I really am determined this time. I made myself keep logging even after the binges...and when I logged into facebook I saw a (slim) friend in a cute new outfit (clothes shopping is a big motivator for me) and I decided to stop my binge and drink a tall glass of water.

I have those days, too. I just go right back to my plan the next day. I try not to dwell on it. You're doing a great job, hang in there.

(The Christmas season was bad for me, but I actually lost because the bad days were few and I kept going. So even if it seems to be a lot of bad days, they're few and far between)

Thanks, racrane. You're right, I may have slipped up for two days, but I was great for 24, and I'll be great at least another 24!

You were great for 24 days, and slipped up? Don't think of yourself as weak! You went 24 days and should be proud!!

I just hit 26 days and am hoping to make it to 30...

So...I challenge you! I challenge you to 30 consecutive days of eating well and working out! We can do this!!! (If I make it to 30 I will continue another 30 with you!)

I highly doubt your stumbling those 2 days are going to undo all the work you've done. Your are doing great, keep it up!!!

If you only went 400 calories over your limit, at WORST you hit maintenance calories for the day. You can't even gain 1 pound of fat from that, let alone 12.

If you see an increase on the scale, it's water weight... nothing more.

I agree with Joss, not enough damage done to make a real dent...only water. Tomorrow is a new day.

I have the same tendency when I hit a mini goal. It's as if the psychological focus of getting there is released and the pendulum swings the other way. All I can do is recognize its a tendency, work on it,and move on.

Totally happens to me, too. But I'm with JossFit and novangel: it's just a blip, don't panic. You'll be cool.

Yup - keep going!!! As the quote goes, you don't drown by falling in the water but by staying there.

However, I'd like to add on the binge at milestone thing. For me, when I get close to a milestone, I know I'm susceptible to backsliding because I struggle with the psychological aspects of it. Losing a few lbs, fine but some milestones change my identity in my head. Process the change and examine why you're resistant to it. For me, I was afraid at first of visible progress because if other people noticed I lost weight, it was like I was finally admitting that I was fat and wanted to change. Another thing that was hard was accepting that I could be a thin person - I wasn't sure I was ready for that. Yeah, I wanted to be thin, but actually doing it was scary so I subconsciously sabotaged myself. Once I worked through that, the milestones don't hold me up so much.

You just gotta get back in the groove and get back on track! It happened and there is nothing you can do now. Just don't let it get you down and remember to keep eating healthy. Don't sweat the little things.

I agree with everyone - take a moment to refocus on savoring your victory and reframe to a place of positivity, then back to work! I am a big fan of "off" days every now and then to keep me from totally falling off the wagon. When I really want something, like ice cream or whatever, I just think "OK, can you wait 3 days or whatever until the predetermined off day? then you can have as much as you want." that thinking keeps me focused/not deprived and by the time i get to the off day i don't really want to eat too much of anything i have fantasized about.

think of the last two days as post-goal off days - and now, you're back on. no big deal.

you are doing a great job and i know will keep it up!
