I'm on day 7 and it's exam week. I'll do my best to not binge this week, even though I know it's going to be hard.

Perfect, I really needed this. Today was not that great but this has totally motivated me to let go of mistakes and move on.

Day 57!

I had a bad date last night and a bad date on Sunday--they were both terribly boring people, which made me think that there's something wrong with me (ridiculous, I know). Anyway, this made me want to binge because I just felt like giving up. I felt tired, and hopeless and didn't want to deal with making something healthy. I just wanted to order some pizza or some other kind of delivery.

It was really hard to resist, but I did. And of course I'm glad I did, because I know it wouldn't have made me feel any better.

Paris Sorry about your bad dates! But, think of this way, you're way too interesting and amazing to settle for a boring person!! Congrats on the resisting the temptation!

Speaking of pizza though, I have class tonight and I believe the professor is bringing in pizza as a treat. I've already planned to have a slice of cheese (depending on the type of crust/how good it looks/how big the pieces are). I've worked it into my plan for today, giving myself the option of having it, if I TRULY want it at the time. This is all part of my master plan (sounds slightly evil, haha) to loosen up and learn to accommodate the daily food challenges that present themselves!

I'm six weeks and 1 day binge free!

Back to day 1. I didn't binge this weekend, but what I did do has resulted in 10 lbs of water weight, I'm sure some 'real' weight, and a total blow to my confidence. I've felt like crying all morning, but I can't get myself to. Took the morning off class to go on a hour and 45 min pity walk. I feel enormous and don't want people to see me. I have a 10K on the 25th and am not going to drink until after it. I've been running great, but I can't get myself to run when I'm down and stressed.
I feel like giving up, dropping out of school, and sleeping forever.. But I can't. I just wish it wasn't so hard to not beat myself up. I went 30 days without these feelings. I hope it doesn't take too long to get myself back to where I was last week.

Tater Tash, please stop beating yourself up and regroup. We've all had weight gain for not even binge-eating. I had to take meds which made me gain weight instantly. Salt will also do it, drinking colas will do it, alcohol does, too. Having PMS is another one that will add weight. And the list goes on.

You're doing so well. If you didn't binge, don't go back to day 1. Now you've learned, drinking=weight gain (if that's what happened).

Stay strong. I'm rooting for you!!! Hang in there.

Tyla

Well today would have been day 15, I binged last night, I know why. It is so hot here, the heat index is 105 degrees. My kitchen is so hot, it made my head feel funny , then I got this hungry nausea feeling. I didn't know at the time that it was the heat causing it, I thought I was feeling sick cause I didn't eat enough yesterday. My calories were on the low side all day and I didn't plan on eating anymore, I wasn't hungry til I got this feeling in my stomach. So I decided to go to Rita's italian ice for something cold to eat so I could feel better. Just sitting in the air conditioned car eating cold food made me feel better. I would have been fine w/ just that, but when I got home I wanted more of something cold, I really wanted ice cream. I went to the store and bought fat free chocolate ice cream and my favorite peanut butter( which I didn't need!) After I ate it, I figured that I consumed 9 servings!(990 cal.) and 6 servings of reduced fat peanut butter!( 1140 cal.) and I dipped 10 marshmallows in the peanut butter, another 250cal.! All together I had 4000 cal yesterday, that is terrible. I already gained 2.2 lbs. with more on the way I'm sure. I just felt so out of control, it tasted so good after not eating it for 2 weeks. I wanted more today, thank goodness someone here ate the rest of it. I did good today because there was nothing here to binge on, so day one turned out to be a success.
