  • Day 20, so far so good

    tomorrow I have a tournament to go to (all dayer) and being around a bunch of people sitting watching and eating from the kiosk will be hard.
    I am planning my day and I will stick to that
  • day 64 and the scales have finally come unstuck. lost 3lbs this week.
    chipmunk cheeks ; congrats on the four weeks. Dont be too hard on yourself you are doing great
    Born this way ; dont hate yourself. today is a new day and you can continue to eat healthily and put yesterday down to having a little wobble
  • 310!!!
  • Day 1- I really blew it yesterday, i am considering it a binge. I couldn't stop myself, i had no control. My calories were 4200!
  • Today started out great and then I decided to have some leftovers for lunch. It triggered something in me to want to eat, eat, eat!! I have maintained control thus far. I sat and figured my meals and snacks for the rest of the day. I will only be going over by 20 cals if I STICK to to the PLAN!! Its gonna be a rough day I can already tell!
  • UGHHHHHH today is day 2 and my not so darling husband (for today at least) and I got into an argument.. AND now all I want to do is eat eat eat. I decided to get on here instead to hopefully help! I hate days like this. And the argument was over something stupid not even worth the argument and def. not worth the 4.3 lbs I lost this past week. Does anyone have any tips on how to distract myself when I want to binge??
  • Melissamartiinson ; I dont know what time it is where you are but I find that the best distraction is to get out of the house and away from temptation. Can you go for a walk, go to the gym or go visit friends or family ?
  • Not sure what "column" to put yesterday. I ate WELL over my plan (3000 vs. 1600) but I didn't have that out of control feeling. I was genuinely hungry when I got home. I think the problem is/was two fold: I waited too long between lunch and dinner (6 hours, as I went out for un-planned drinks after work), had 2 glasses of champagne I wasn't planning on, and then when I got home STARVING, basically just snacked instead of sitting down to a real meal, so my "you're done eating now" switch didn't get flipped. I was so hungry when I got home that rather than even putting together something easy and quick, I just grabbed some cheese and a tortilla and kind of kept snacking. I never got SUPER full and never had that "OMG I MUST KEEP EATING" feeling, so I'm not sure if it counts as a binge or not. Either way - it was a calorie-dense as one.

    Strangely, (and awesomely) I was down a half pound from yesterday. Maybe my metabolism needed a boost.

    Tonight I'm going out for drinks with a friend and am not only pre-planning my dinner before hand and snack after, I'm going to PREPARE them and stick them in the fridge. That way, when I get home, even if I'm starving, all I have to do is nuke it for 3 minutes. Surely I can wait 3 minutes?

    So including 3 glasses of champagne I plan on having, my calories for today will be 1763 if I stick to my plan and my average calories for the week will be 1848. A little higher than I'd like, but nowhere NEAR the last few weeks. (last week I averaged 2500 per day!)

    Man, every day is a struggle with this stuff. But we're in it together.

    Run, Read, Knit, Find new and interesting recipes, chew on some ice (yes I know that it's bad for your teeth) call a friend, read a book, my favorite.... scream into a pillow,write in a journal, write down your feeling on a piece of paper - fold it real small - get a fire proof bowl and then light it on fire!


    Oh and today is Binge Free Day 2 =)
  • 21 back up to 3 weeks, now to wonder how long it will be until I fall again.
    Have a dinner planned for the 2nd April that I am not sure I can go to without considering it a binge.. MY goal is to survive until then BINGE FREE!
  • hi everyone
    are you guys doing another binge free challenge? I really need some support from people who know what i'm going through. this past week i ate well and worked out daily, but two days on binge eating just put me back at where i started

    sorta bummed
  • 311!
  • I just weighed myself and am down .8 pounds from yesterday, and yesterday I was down .5 from the day before. I know some of that is water, etc, but it shows me that the 3000 cal day I had on Friday didn't do as much damage as I thought. I was actually hungry for all those calories, so maybe this is one example of my body operating the way is supposed to.

    Yesterday I stayed on plan, though my cals were planned a little high, and I feel really good overall about how this last week went. Whether I call Friday a binge or not, I'm still not sure, but it's good to see that one really bad day like that didn't throw off my whole week of good clean eating. I averaged a 1 pound loss this week, so I'm pleased. (But not pleased enough to celebrate with cake! )
  • Day 2- made it!
  • day 65.
    fruitlady ; keep going you can do it
