Avoiding the Binge Whirlpool

Voted Popular Blog Post: View All Popular Posts

Saturday, April 27, 2013



If you know me...you know I'm a visual person
a picture speaks a thousand words to me.

This is what one of my binges used to feel like...
jump past the first few minutes and you'll see me going full force.
Consider the ice and snow as all the sugar, fat, and salt,
and the other debris, junk food, and you'll know what I mean

Luckily...I don't do that any more.
I try to stick to only healthy options and give myself a portion at a time
But when I catch myself going back for more and more
I try to step back and wonder....WHY
9 out of 10 times ...it works

These days ... when I feel stressed or depressed because of the news
I know the reason...
and I know that stuffing myself won't resolve anything.
And you can't change everything...
sometimes you just have to deal with the feelings...they too shall pass
if you let it.

The weather is just perfect for walking these days.
Planning to enjoy the fresh air today.

have fun this weekend

    I to remember eating until I had to unbutton my pants, felt sick to my stomach, what ever I saw I wanted to taste it. I will say that the feeling after, is far worse (you beat up on yourself for not having self control). Now I still take it day by day, but I tell myself I don't want to feel like crap later or if I still feel I need to eat it (WHY) is my new way(thank you). I would have always talked myself down to I can have just a little then work it off later.

    Yes, a walk is a binge I can do! It is easy to take all those feelings and submerge them in a vat of ice cream, but then we just have more issues... I love your blogs!

    Thanks for this. Great words. Binging has become a way of life for me lately... I need to stop and ask myself why.

Thank you!

    We are in a pattern where the weekends are rainy and the week days are sunny and sometimes too hot. We are keeping busy but eating too much.

    I like the pic. You are right, if we let our feelings just be instead of trying to stuff them with food we will deal with them and move on. We have to know that sometimes we are just going to be "angry" or "sad" or "excited" or whatever the feeling is -- feel it, even if it's painful and then let it go!

  Walking or some kind of exercise is better than pacing around or stuffing our face

I know I had a job that was rather stressful, boredom or sadness about not getting to see family used to hit me that way. I said, it used to. Well, at least it's not the first thing I go to anymore. We changes this habit emoticon
