I never thought of myself as a binge eater, but tonight I realized different.

I knew I had gone over my calories for the day but didn't feel too badly. I was just over by 150 or so. So this evening I had a huge craving for chocolate. Nothing else would do. So I was going to eat a few semi-sweet chocolate chunks. Once I started, though, it was all over. I had some chocolate, a glass of milk and then repeated the whole process.

On top of that I didn't work out tonight. I slept, watched a show and was basically lazy. And now I feel TERRIBLE. In fact, I am basically writing this so I will remember the sick-to-my-stomach feeling I have and the disgusting way I feel right now. Maybe if I remember this I will be more likely to put the brakes on when I start feeling like I "need" some food that is not in my daily meal plan.


Time to get back up, plan my meals for the rest of the week and make sure I get my yoga in for the next few nights. Regretting tonight's bad choices aren't going to make the rest of the week easier. In fact, I'm pretty sure if I beat myself up for too long I will be even more miserable later.

    Beating myself does not work. I get in a beat, restrict, resent, then binge cycle. I need love and understanding then willingness to start a new day. emoticon
