getting my mindset back on track

Tuesday, March 29, 2011

I binged today. Badly. I have an emotional eating problem... It had been over a week since i last binged... today it just happened suddenly. I was filling a mix of emotions, and I was just craving food so badly... and on top of that, I was getting sick of eating healthy... so I caved, and without think I ended up eating half a bag of the smart pop popcorn, a ton of almonds, some peanut butter, a TON of cereal (my main weakness), and a box of yogurt covered raisins...

needless to say, I feel terrible... and the thing is, I didn't realize exactly how much I ate.. but now I feel just miserable, so I'm writing this down to make sure I remember that I never want to get this way again. THis is the first time in over a week that I've eaten anything processed... I haven't eaten simple carbs in ages, nor have i eaten anything with sugar...

I don't like this. I want to get back on track. I LIKED being healthy, but I don't know how to do it... I don't know how to quit this emotional eating habit. it feels hopeless...

THe picture above is what gave me a reality check. Just seeing how high those arrows shot up... and realizing how many calories I actually ate just by one 20 minute binge... not worth it... not worth it at all... I have to make sure I remember that this binge hasnt ruined anything. It may have set me back a day, but what's one day out of all the days I will get to enjoy once I'm at the weight I want to be at?
