Thumbs up BINGE FREE WEEK - July 2nd start

Good morning, chicks!

I needed to get this thread started because last night, I had a pretty bad binge, and today is a brand new day. I'm feeling positive and motivated!

Hope all the canucks had a great Canada day! (I'm incredibly sunburned, and sad that I missed the fireworks )

s to a great week!

Hi Penelope!

I'm definitely in for checking in on the binge challenge this week. Glad you're getting back on track again, that can be so difficult!

Take care of that sunburn. Unfortunately, it's supposed to rain here all week so I don't think I'm going to have that trouble on the 4th. And I so wanted to chill by the pool all day!

Hey Lil Mama -

We should have a cute puppy parade.

I love your Nike signature quote. I'm kind of getting into one of those "Damnit, I can do this!" modes and that quote just really ramped me up.

Ladies - Thank you for the encouragement! The weather was beautiful on July 1st, and it has been for the last several days...we got so much rain in June, so we're definately enjoying the sunshine now!

I have not been in here forever but I wanted to drop in and show some support. Thanks to this board I am now 71 days binge free. 71. It feels great and now that i'm eating healthy I'm dropping weight like crazy!

From may 1st- june 16th i allowed myself to eat ONE of what I wanted and it worked. Now I have cut out all bad foods 100%. I am down 14 ish pounds and life is great.

I have nightmares about binging but I never get close to it.

Life is wonderful.

I wish the best of luck to all of you! If i could, I would share my new found will power with all of you

Thumbs up

I ate a lot more than I should have on Saturday and Sunday, so I am up for this challenge.

I've been chewing a lot of sugarless gum this week to avoid overeating! My goal is to stay under 1800 calories a day.

I managed not to binge on Mon. and Tues. even though I had restaurant leftovers.

I did well on Wed., and today I'm mentally preparing myself for dinner with friends at a restaurant tonight.

Hey Everyone -

How is it going? I'm still binge-free and working on psyching myself up for the weekend and making healthy choices. I've been getting a lot more exercise in, which I'm thrilled about. Of course, sometimes that is good in that it makes you think "no way am I eating those cookies after I just burned off those calories" and sometimes it's bad in that it can make you even hungrier. It's always a battle!

Good luck to you all, have a great weekend!

Great job on being binge-free all week ya'll

I am feeling proud because holidays are always a tough time for me...I tend to "excuse" being out of control because it's a holiday...don't ask me how that makes sense! - but this holiday, I did not binge I'm really excited about this whole new life that hasn't revolved around food all week!

Hope ya'll have a great weekend

Leigh, isn't that Nike quote the best? I think I found it on this site but it really struck home for me too! It makes me feel like the little engine that could!

I totally know what you mean, Lil Mama about thinking you should have the holidays (or weekends for me) off. I self-talk the time off as if it is some kind of reward, when in the end it is really punishment by adding on the pounds. It is such a tough balance!

When I read the Nike quote today, I really had a feeling of that "they" in there is really "me" and I can definitely change what I say about myself!

OMG - Leigh, I've never thought of it like that...but you are right...it IS ME! I like it even better now! Every morning I wake up with the opportunity to choose what I think...
