Default Binge-Free Challenge: 3.14.11 - 3.20.11 - We are in this together!

Welcome to the binge-free challenge!!

This is a place where you can come in and talk about binging. Feel free to post about your successes and your struggles and keep track of how many days you've been binge free. You can also vent about anything and everything you feel like getting out. We are here to share our feelings and to encourage and inspire each other.

No negativity! We are strong chicks and I KNOW we all can do this!! And we don't have to do it alone, we have each other to get us through the rough times.

ALL chicks are welcome -- no one is excluded! If you are trying to lose weight, not trying, maintaining, recovering from an eating disorder, in the midst of one, or have ANY kind of problem with food, we would love to have you join us!! Please do not hesitate to post your feelings. Jump right in head first!!! We WILL catch you!

Good morning chickies! Not sure of the day since every day is day 1 but am feeling all right. This weekend was challenging...my mom has been visiting for some much-needed emotional support and she's leaving tonight. We were living it up this weekend and while I didn't binge, I did have more to drink that I usually do and ended up snacking on unnecessary things. It shows on the scale But, tonight I also leave for a business trip so those are always easy to manage in terms of food, etc. Since I stay in hotels, nothing is readily available and junk food requires getting dressed and driving to the store. With that said, I hope to be back on track by the end of the week.

I won't be able to check in with you guys so wishing you all a good and healthy week.

305!

Starting with a new therapist today--hopefully she'll be better than the last one (who was not good at all!)

Paris, only 60 days left until you cross the 1 year mark. That is amazing! Great job!!! Good luck with the new therapist.

Today is Day 156. Feeling good.

wow, you all have been doing so well for so long! i'm just coming off a wild weekend...binge-free for 6 hours even though i try to be understanding with myself...that i like quantity, that sometimes it's ok to indulge, etc...i think i've learned a couple things about myself: 1. i weigh less when i keep myself from even the occasional binge (so duh!) and 2. the "damage" done always escalates from 1 tick to 20 because the binge isn't isolated. it goes on and on and on.

i feel like there are so many areas i need to key in on right now: binging, clean-eating, mindfulness, exercise. and i'm a little overwhelmed. :/

but i'm going to start here, so that hopefully these 6 hours grow!

partypantalones, I am in a similar boat, coming off of several days' worth. I think it's too much to tackle it all at once - any improvement after a few days of nonstop binging is a cause for celebration.

Hey guys. This weekend I had a weak moment. On Saturday, around 11 PM I ate about 20 saltine crackers I didn't feel hungry for, and about 6 small cookies. I feel pretty guilty. I didn't stuff my face without thought, I ate them while enjoying them, but I knew I wasn't hungry. This was after eating a full dinner (a fried fish sandwich, which I also felt guilty about), and I felt guilty while I was eating the crackers and cookies. But, the rest of the weekend wasn't bad, and I didn't throw in the towel on Sunday just because I over-ate Saturday night. It wasn't a binge because I wasn't stuffing my face or numbing my emotions. I just over-ate because I felt like it. Afterwards, I felt bad.

So that makes today 44. Even though I'm not sure if I should start over or not.

i think I'm on day 51! Really wanted chocolate & peanut butter today, we didn't have any here thankfully. If I wasn't broke, I'm sure I'd be at the market getting it right now. Feel very weak today, like I don't care anymore. Once these thoughts pass, I'll be happy I didn't binge.

Today is Day 1. I am trying out not eating breakfast because in a natural weekend state, I'm not hungry until the afternoon, and starting to eat early in the day gets me thinking about eating constantly all day.

Thanks Vixsin! The therapist went well. She asked good questions and had good insights, and this was only the initail intake meeting.

She's not an eating disorder specialist, but I don't know how much of a difference that would make, since I've managed to resist the behavoir for some time now. I figure she'll be good to figure out why the behavoir is there, like any other negative behavoir.

306!

day 60. struggling today. been working a lot recently which keeps me out of temptations way but I am now off for a week and home alone for the majority of the day. never really thought about it before but being alone is obviously a trigger for me. I dont even feel hungry I just want to pass some time eating. Strange

day 45. Went for a long walk yesterday and talked on the phone for about 2 hours. Didn't have the urge to binge because I was too busy being busy!
