Binge of All Binges....

Sunday, March 10, 2013

I am feeling like a bloated, out of control alien tonight! I am so disappointed in myself. For the last several months I have managed to control myself and not give in to my desire to binge eat. I have maintained control and relied on my willpower to keep my diet in check. But tonight, for whatever reason, I failed and binged on several junk food items over the course of 3.5 hours. (chocolate cake, M&Ms, beef from dinner & A large bowl of fruit!!)
I am writing this because, like any addict, I have to be accountable for faltering in my addiction. Yes, food is my addiction. By making myself accountable, I will be less likely to continue faltering.
So, yes i had a bad binge. But what I am NOT going to do is give up and quit working towards my goals. I am going to say that this was a bad afternoon, but that doesn't mean it has to be a bad week. You see as I have dieted before, I allowed a bad moment to domino into momentS, then hours, then weeks etc. Not this time. I am not going to eat anything else tonight and in the morning I am going to return to my normal, healthy eating. I will stay in my calorie count and I will workout as usual. This moment will not break me.

OK, now that I sound like a crazy lady, I am going to take my butt to bed and hope that the bloat from this binge goes away soon!! Good Night!!

    You don't sound crazy at all! You sound healthy and determined and should be proud of yourself! You can see and admit to the world something about yourself that you want to change. Just writing this blog and being honest with us all takes a lot of courage. No one is perfect all the time. Tomorrow will be better!

    You don't sound like a crazy lady at all - congrats on not beating yourself up and simply getting back on track without punishing yourself. It happens to all of us!

    You and me both. And Russell Brand. I just wrote a. Log about the connection, with link to Beth Donovan's EXCELLENT blog (~INDYGIRL ) on the topic and how she heads off a binge.

Tomorrow (well today) is another day. Love yourself with good food and work in the exercise and the water...

    it's over... I wonder how often you eat in moderation some of those foods...When I deprive myself of special treats the urge can over come me...but once I allowed myself in small amounts and not all at one time did I stop the binge's....give your self permission to have special treats, you take the control...

be good to yourself, you deserve it.
have a healthy week

    You have the right attitude about your binge. Pick yourself up, brush yourself off, and start fresh. emoticon
