Hang in there. You can get through this. A change of scenery often helps. Get up from your desk, your table, your couch - wherever you are feeling in the dumps and go into the light, i.e. outside or clean out one messy drawer or go to the library - anything to break the doldrums. Also - try blasting some dance music. Something about club music always gets me thinking about dancing the night away and puts other things in perspective. Good luck! We're rooting you on!

Sorry you are having a tough day.

Do you want to eat for comfort? Is that why you think you might binge? Is there something else that can provide that comfort for you?

If you need food, get food. If you need comfort, get comfort.

Take care of yourself!

Bad days happen to us all - me included. It is not what happens in one day as such that matters, it is what happens over a number of days.

Ask yourself these questions:
What are you hungry?
Are you eating enough for the amount of exercise you do?
Are you getting plenty of fruit/veges, and protein?
Do you eat ALL your meals?
Do you record all of your food?
IF you record all your food, do you weigh it for accuracy?

It is possible that you may not be eating enough for what you do physically. If you are hungry, eat. Hunger actually leads to binges, so if you are hungry, deal with it sooner rather than later! If you AREN'T hungry, then find something else to do - something that will take your mind off food.

Hi, Tiffany !

Bad days happen to good people. When you feel stressed out, put on your coat and take a walk. Walking is not only great cardiovascular exercise, it's a great way to reduce stress. I'm a firm believer that stress is a neglected aspect of weight gain. If a person could reduce their stress, they'd automatically reduce their waistline.

There are better ways to vent your stress that don't involve food. Whenever you feel overwhelmed or stressed out, take a walk. listen to your favorite music. sit down and sip a cup of tea. get a notebook and write out your feelings. There are so many other things you could do instead of eating.

The next time you feel like you're going to binge, stop for a minute. collect your thoughts. what's something else you could do ? Learn to manage your stress. it won't be easy, but once you do, you'll reduce your binging.

Totally rough day. I feel really alone, and negative. I don't want to. I would love to go get a snack in the kitchen. I'm even hungry, but if i start eating, I'll probably binge.
