back to tracking!

Sunday, September 26, 2010

I am back to tracking my food. It's a wonderful tool that I have not been taking advantage of- thought that I could stuff myself and no one would know. What self deception!

I have been on a three day binge. I have a great deal of guilt related to this and feel quite sick. What can I do? Work on having a different day. I am in a group that believes that one's Higher Power will take away the obsession with food. That has not happened for me. I know that if I continue to live in some sort of magical, fantasy land where magic wands wave over one and take away the desires that are "bad" then I am really lost. I have to use what I have so readily available to me to help myself.

For today: I will live in the "real world"
I will track everything that I put in my mouth.
I will maintain a positive attitude and use all of the tools I am aware of to help myself.
Before I eat I will stop to examine why I am eating.

Thank you for the support and encouragement !

    That's great that you are tracking! I think tracking my food has been the best thing I've done here. It's really a big snap back to reality of what you are putting in your body. For me, it really made me think about the quality of the food I was eating. For instance, did I really want to DRINK my calories? I thought a lot about how I was going to feel full when I cut back what I ate, and how I was going to handle those times when I just felt the need to munch. I really had to think about how I normally eat (like times when I'm hungry vs bored) and how to make my plan work for me. Adding tons of fiber helped so much! I definitely try to leave 100-200 calories free to have some popcorn or something later in the evening for when I feel "snacky". Other than that, I try to think about why I am feeling that way, and usually it's just that I need something to do. Thank goodness for knitting! I'm definitely picking that back up again to keep my hands out of my mouth! :D Good luck, and keep the faith! You can do it!!!

    Good for you. Tracking is a great tool, I learned that lesson after not tracking for a few day. It is easy to just eat a little more of this and then a little more of that. Tracking really keeps you focused & even if you have binge day, it is so easy to get back on track.
