This is the ever-elusive key to lasting success for me in weight loss. I lost weight by beating "perfect" on Nutrisystem. Now, I'm trying to learn how to eat regular food in my calorie range. It's still just as hard now as it was 100+ pounds ago. I think the key might be to just to keep trying and not give up. I'm certainly not going to quit trying. I know where that will get me and I gave away all the clothes that are bigger than size 12. I will NOT buy bigger ones and thankfully I don't need to!

I need to find a way to get back on the healthy eating track after an indulgence and to stop obsessing about a food I've eaten that was unplanned. I need to find out how to do that. I'm open to suggestions!

    Amen, Lori!!!! I finally get it... this is a lifestyle for me... I will never be to the point where I can say I'm done... I've arrived... I will always have to be active and monitor my diet...

Have a wonderful day!

    As a recovering binge eater, my strategy is to include an indulgence every day. As a result, I no longer feel the urge to binge.

Positive self talk with mindful breathing helps me get through the daily stressors of teaching.

Good luck--I hope this helps. emoticon

    This is a lifestyle - a journey of a lifetime if you will. Not a diet. Not a 30 day or a six month or a pre-packaged and "perfectly" portioned and $$$$$ we are talking about. Trust me; I've done them ALL. Pills, potions, name it. And yes; I found success - MULTIPLE times on plans where I didn't have to make any choices but that wasn't living and that is where we need to find balance. That ever elusive "click" that works on our individual journeys. If you desire something - enjoy it - indulge if you will - a small taste! Tasting portion sizes are very popular right now. And then step away and really know you have SAVORED that "indulgence" and you will find that food becomes something to savor. If it's average - just say NO! If it's AMAZING - savor a taste! You absolutely CAN and WILL! You believe in yourself. You love yourself. You have a support system. You've got this! Together we CAN!!!!! One day at a time.
