Default I'm back--finally!

Back in March my laptop had the unfortunate experience of getting stepped on, and the screen broke. It has taken me this long to get a new one, so I am finally back. I have been losing weight pretty steadily, which is good. Recently, though I've had a setback so I'm glad I can post again.

I am a binge eater. It's amazing (in a really gross way) how much food I can eat all at once. Three weeks ago I started a binge that didn't stop for two weeks. I had gotten down to 167 pounds, and in two weeks I gained eleven pounds back.

I have been counting calories and even going to the gym for a whole week now, and tomorrow morning is my weigh in. Wish me luck, right? I've also started a new eating plan that I hope is going to help me out. I live in downtown Portland, so a lot of the time I end up getting Subway or Taco Del Mar for dinner on my way home from work. Not the healthiest thing I can do, and it doesn't provide much variety. I've decided that if I can't get myself to go to the grocery store and cook at home, then I'll walk to the Whole Foods a half mile from my work--every day if I have to--and get something at least a little healthy for dinner.

I haven't decided how long I'm going to count calories, since my normal plan is just to eat as much healthy food as I want. I've been eating almost exactly 2000 calories per day for the last five days. I was shooting for 1800-2000, but 1800 calories makes me feel hungry and deprived at the end of the day. To offset this, I've been eating a candy bar every night. I'm working on the moderation thing, but it is so hard. Bingeing and starving are both easier than moderation, I think.

I look forward to getting to know you all much better. Wish me luck! I need it.

BACK!! Stay this time

You can do it this time! I also am a binge eater, and I have not had one binge in 2 months! I read the book Skinny B**** (which is in most libraries) it really changed my life, and helped tremendously with my binge problem.

You can do it!! Never give up.
