that is how i feel today,i am in pain,i am down and i am binge eating as if that would help?i have been taking it easy today,well as easy as you can with three small children.also spent quite a bit of time on the computer here at spark catching up on my emails and other peoples blogs in the hope it would inspire me and help me stop binge eating.has inspired but not stopped the binge eating so thought if i come on here and admit out in the open like you my spark friends can help me feel guilty enough to stop.i know not a very good reason but that is how the cookie crumbles or should i say the chocolate butter cookies with 32% milk chocolate and 19% butter or so it says on the packet of the biscuits that i have ate halve a packet off.now don´t start praising me that io have only ate half a pacet the night is young yet and the other half has my name on it.good aren´t eye.well now you know where the stand point is i will leave you.i feel better getting it out in the open instead of trying to keep it secret.first step in the right direction.hope you are all having a better day than me and if not remember tomorrow is another day.that is what i am going to hold on to.TOMORROW IS ANOTHER DAY.
Karen - you can stop the binge - you've done it before. You can do it = I know you are under so much stress right now - but give the kids the cookies - LOL! They do sound delish - but after the first 2 - they don't taste as good - right? Tomorrow is anohter day - and you are going to do fabulous.! xo Kris 2086 days ago
OK Karen get it out there, now what is causing this? YOU are so much more than that other half. We all have these moments just remember this was your moment now move forward. Catch that Spark and LIGHT IT UP!! 2086 days ago
Everyone has these days once in awhile. When it's over, drink a ton of water, get some good sleep, and then begin again. Think about how bad you felt physically after the binge. Treat your body right for a few days, and it will forgive you. 2086 days ago
I think you are right to be public about your shortfall. Not that anyone is going to berate you - we have ALL been there! What it DOES do is help YOU see your "obstacles". I think reading what we think/say in print helps us to define our challenges and that's the first step to overcoming them.
Is is possible to NOT buy the chocolate biscuits? Is there some other treat you could keep for you lovely children that won't be a temptation to you?
I wish you a WONDERFUL tomorrow - full of SUCCESSES!
