I need to control my eating before I get diabetes

Friday, May 10, 2013

Most times when I am alone at home, I am binge eating. I am afraid of my home because it is where I overeat. I feel a need to fill an emptiness that I have. Always restless, I just wish for peacefulness with myself.

    Thanks for all of the advice. I think that I have too many hobbies but find it hard to get motivated to do any, except occasionally. I will try and go for a walk or postpone it as suggested next time 👧

    I have felt that way so many times. You have come to the write place. I have learned so much about my self and habits since I started to come to the SparkPeople site. I have learned control by finding the perfect balance that is right form. The encouragement and support I have found through SparkPeople has not only help me to meet my goals for a healthy lifestyle, but also to meet my other goals in life.

So, don't get discouraged, and don't be afraid to be at home because of eating. Just start changing your habits to good habits.

    Keep your eye on the prize. It'll always be a work-in-progress for me to stay away from bingeing, but I take one day at a time and keep working on it, remembering how good I feel when I eat healthy foods, the feeling when I wake up binge-free and I'm hungry for breakfast and not feeling heavy and sluggish. It's worth it.

I like ELIDET's suggestions of going for a walk, or just anything to distract yourself. If I felt the craving for a binge at, say, 8.15, I would say to myself 'wait until 9 and then you canhave whatever you want'. Quite a few times it would get to 9 and the feeling will have passed. I'm not saying that there were times I didn't just go full force for a binge, but that delaying technique really helps mentally.

Keep working at it. Stay strong, remove temptation from in your house. At least if you have to binge it'll mean having to make the effort to leave your house to pick it up. Good luck emoticon

    I am now in diabetic remission and on on third the meds for it. You can do it too. Keep focused for success. Go for it.

    Sorry to hear that. Is there a hobby you can take up next time you feel like that? Or maybe replace it with a healthy alternative.

Sometimes when I get anxious, I go out for a walk. I know that might be hard if it is late at night. Maybe watch your favorite shows and distract you, hopefully after a few days the feeling goes away.
