Sorry to Report Addicted Relapse

Thursday, February 03, 2011


I am sorry to report I totally gave in and ate sweets. I was completely surrounded by sweets. I was watching my pastors children at there house while they were on a retreat. Well, The temptation was to great. I abstain from it up until the second night. I don't know I started to feel down for some reason and then began eating it. I don't know were I should go from here.

I think I will start out again with day 23 tomorrow. A fresh start. I was being so good and dedicated with food and exercise but the change in scenery really messed everything up...

I have had the thought a few times well I can just be fat I have been fat this long what difference will it make. Well, the bottom line is I want to be healthy. I want to be active, energized and ready to go. I want to prepare my body with optimal health so it has a fighting chance against all the diseases floating around like cancer, heart disease, diabetes and so forth..

Please keep me in your prayers I really need it. Thank you...

    Hi Ebony, it is like quitting anything else, we fail at it a few times, but then we succeed. Giving up sugar for as long as you did was awesome...and I know what you mean when the stuff is starring you in the strong, you can do it.

Did you ever try to perhaps allow yourself say once every two weeks any type of candy as a treat?

We so limit ourselves and that can cause a binge on the stuff we are eliminating..

Just some thoughts...I felt bad for you, reading this.

Keep your eyes on the Lord, if you are watching your pastor's kids, I'm sure you know what I'm saying.

    You need to know, it is NOT your fault. You would never have those things in your house and you may need to tell your pastor, if you are to sit for him again, that you need to watch the kids in a "CLEAN" enviorment and if he could put away, hide those kinds of foods, it would really help you.

Also try reading THE END OF OVEREATHING! You will find out why it is not your fault. I just started it and I do not have the solution yet, hope he has one, or I would give it to you. I checked mine out from the library.

    You don't have to go anywhere. You just keep on going. I had 4 mini donuts the other night, and still was able to show success on the scale this morning. The thing is about over eating is that we don't have to do it everytime. We are human and it happens. The sweets won't stop your progress, it will just slow it down. And if we eat the sweets within portion control and in between our body being hungry and full, it won't even slow it down.

    You are doing so much for your health, eating those sweets was, if anything a mistake, and it is something you will move on from. You are doing so much for your health. You are doing so much for you. The important thing is that you keep moving forward and don't let a mistake no matter what it is hold you back. It is something for you to learn from. (For example, you ate some sweets, but you have the willpower now to not let yourself get out of control, that is a huge thing to realize.)

You are doing great. You are working for yourself. You care about your well being at that is a great thing. You are not letting a mistake or relapse or anything hold you back.

    And to that, I say: so what!? Not to diminish you're feelings about "relapsing" but it's ok, it really is! It's about progress not perfection. It's ok to relapse every now and then. The important part is that you do it, get over it and move on instead of falling into that slippery slope of a downward spiral (you know the, I messed up this morning, no sense in eating healthy the rest of the day, etc). And what can you take away from it? What can you learn from it? Turn it into a learning opportunity! Keep it up and don't be so hard on yourself.

    Try not to be too hard on yourself because as you said, you were not in control of the situation. Being outside of what you can control and NOT giving in to temptation is the hardest thing to learn. Keep going, keep trying, you'll get there!
