I have binged 4 days in a row this week. I have done it out of either stress, anger or worry for things that involve myself or my partner. I do it at 9-10pm with a lot of carbs. I had just had a streak of more then 2 weeks of eating in my calorie limit through thick and thin, and I noticed that I had lost some weight and was feeling better. This is sometimes when things start to go down hill for me.
I would just like to remind myself of somethings:
It is OK to have success in my health and fitness journey. I deserve success and things can continue to go well.
Everyday is a new day.
A day's effort is not worthless after going over my calories I can still stop or make healthy choices instead of getting frustrated and thinking things are too far gone to care.
Eating and food do not help me cope with the situation, although it may feel good to distract myself and lose control in the moment.
I can distract myself with other things like reading, or better yet going to bed, because often I am tired and overwhelmed.
Nothing good comes from a binge.
I am a strong, beautiful, smart lady who doesn't need to punish herself with overeating- try self affirmations at times when I am feeling negative.
