I'm still sitting above 75kgs, but at the lower end! My goal was ten days below that number and I only have one. It's still possible!

Hope everyone has a good on plan weekend!

You can do it G-Joy!

Almost through the weekend, yay! We have so many bad weekend habits to change (over eating and over drinking mostly) that they've become quite stressful for me, and I have to hang on tight to get through them!

Binge free day 5.

Today is my 1 month "spreadsheet" weigh-in, and over that month I really cleaned up my act except for the once-per-week 1-meal binges I was having and am now trying to completely stop. Over the course of the last 4 weeks I lost 18.4 pounds, yay! And while there were days it felt like torture, there were other days that it felt just fine. So I hope that over time that's what more and more of the days feel like!

Binge free day 6 (almost a week without a single scrap of unplanned food passing my lips, yay!)

Daily Weight:
8/15: 179.8
8/16: 179.2
8/17: 178.4
8/18: 178.6
8/19: 178.4
8/20: 177.6

Yay, My_Michelle! That's a terrific monthly report. Good scale numbers, but even better are the changes you're making in your life.

Binge free day 8. Last night was haaaaarrrd, because I had to prepare food for mu husband late in the evening and I hate having to deal with food when I'm not eating. I felt very close to losing control, but hung in there.

Yay, My_Michelle! You're doing great. That is tough for anyone to prepare food while not eating it. Good job sticking it out.

Tabbycat: rooting for that 128 to stick!

I'm not getting anywhere near the 75kg mark right now, but this is giving me useful information. Maybe my maintenance weight is going to be below 76kg rather than below 75kgs. I think I can live with that.

Back to binge-free day 1 again. Sigh.

Every time I think I've got this beast's number I slip up. But, now what I can do is NOT repeat the binging, not backslide. I'm not going to dwell on the mistake. I acknowledge I made a mistake and I'm moving forward. I think I know what triggered the binge, and I'm going to try to avoid that situation again. And I've written down a couple of ideas for last-minute binge avoidance and taped them up in the kitchen.

Onward.
