Thank goodness this is the start of a new week! Last week my uncle died and I had some major conflict with my DH. And then after doing so well without a binge it hit me like a ton of bricks. I ate so much I threw up! UGH I hate this..... I need to find a way to cope with LIFE without doing this to myself, but today is a new day and I am starting over.

Got through Day 1. Had Reeses PB cups for breakfast but only had 3 (I got a bag in the mail at work from the U.S.). Already feel the crack-addict symptoms, but I'm pretty determined to not make tomorrow Day 1 again.

After over a week of helter-skelter mindless sugar consumption and overeating, I was only up 1.5 kg on the scale. As of today I am just about 10 pounds heavier than I was on my birthday. On my birthday I was checking myself out naked in mirrors. 10 pounds can come off in just a few weeks if I don't binge. I need to remember that.

binging is my biggest obstacle. i was waiting for a new week of this thread to roll around. i've been binge free for 2 weeks now (since i started my most recent attempt at losing the weight) and i'm hoping to keep it going!

Ah *******it! Tomorrow is going to be Day 1. I have crossed the line between grazing and binging somewhere.

Day 10 done yesterday.

Tamara and Vixon: thank you for weighing in with your thoughts. It is really interesting and helpful to hear that recognizing and responding to your triggers is the key. I am going to challenge myself to really pay attention when I feel like binging: what is going through my head? What am I really feeling? What do I think that binging will fulfill for me?

Day 2. Yesterday was really good. I stayed right on plan and had a great workout. Sundays are always so easy for me though, even though I'm home. During the week, if I work from home, it's the total opposite - i can't stop eating. I have NO idea why this is. Same house, same food options, yet Sundays are just ... easy.

Last week I only had 3 good days. (I keep track on a chart I made and give myself a smiley face if I stayed on plan and last week I got only 3.)

I still haven't really figured out ALL the reasons why I binge, but stress is certainly one of them. Saturday I think it was being tired and bored. I had gone out dancing the night before and for some reason only slept 2 hours. Yet I couldn't take a nap either. (Believe me, I tried.) So even though I said outloud to my BF "I think I"m so hungry today because I'm so tired", I said it on the way to the kitchen for another snack.

Somehow I need to take control this week. I can't go on beating up on myself so much every day. It's not good. Thank you for these threads!!

I would like to join you ladies please! I need a challenge to keep me motivated to stop binging. My biggest hurdle is coming home from work and the 3 min it takes to heat up my dinner, I can do a lot of damage to my fridge. Sooo, March 28th, day 1 binge free!

no binging yesterday! even though i was given the perfect opportunities!

i went out with a friend of mine, and we went to a super walmart to pick up some essentials. they have food out EVERYWHERE. all that easter candy on sale. huge candy aisle. the delicious smelling rotisserie chickens. and a subway at the front of the store...

i made it through with my only 'candy' purchase being a peppermint patty! (140 cals/3g fat) i figured since it wasn't enough to send me off plan, and i didn't buy a bag and eat the whole thing, it's not a binge right? just a little treat i allowed myself (that's my story and i'm sticking to it!). then we went to the subway and i ordered, what i think, is a very healthy sub choice (ham and turkey with spinach, lettuce, onions, green peppers, honey mustard and a teeny bit of light mayo). and i got the foot long. my plan was to eat half for dinner and save the other half for lunch the next day... and i did it! i didn't eat the whole thing! i had half of the sub with a fat free yogurt, a mini rice krispy treat, and a diet peach green tea.

i feel like i passed a test!

p.s. HI SUSAN! glad you decided to join us here!
