how to avoid the Binge

Wednesday, September 17, 2014

Sometimes it's really hard not to binge but I take a drink and read a book as that occupies my mind much more than the TV.
If that's not working I take a walk, not in the middle of the night but I'm not a nighttime binger, and remove myself from temptation. I'm in my third week and being strong is getting harder but my other half is great encouragement to me and takes away most of the tempting things by eating them himself. He has a 34in waist exactly the same as when we met 17 years ago so it's not doing him any harm.
If I really crave something I have a small amount and savour it. I don't beat myself up about it either just get on with tof
day and tomorrow. One day at a time

    My husband (age 55) hasn't changed his size since high school that is why I get the bigger closet. Great ideas to avoid the binge. emoticon emoticon Water, read, walk, savor first bite!

What will I do with my Big Clothez

Tuesday, September 16, 2014

Last time I did this I threw out all my big clothes and had to buy new as I put weight on but I will do the same again as the way it made me feel was a constant reminder of what I was letting go. So out with the big clothes as soon as I drop a size

    We can all have an oops day, it's what you do the day after that counts.

Difficult Days

Thursday, September 11, 2014

Been working overseas and found it so difficult to eat well or exercise. Home now and must get straight back on track. Walk first thing this morning will give me more exercise than I have done in the last three days

greeting from Finland

Monday, September 08, 2014

Here I am working in Finland so I really have to try to get my exercise and eat properly, not easy on hotel food! Wish me luck

    I'd love to hear more about your work-journey, how is Finland, and what job are you doing that took you there? I'm wishing you lots of luck and even more important, I'm wishing you fortitude to make good choices while away!
