Day 22 - Binge...

Thursday, May 23, 2013

yepp... binge.. no reason whatsoever, just like that!!! I hate it!!! I'm sick of binge attacks, of how much power JABBA and food has over me... especially sugar.
Three is this mad plan forming in my mind though, parts of me shivers and doesn't like that plan at all, yet I'm desperate for change, for freedom. I think I will cut out sweets at all... even my precious dinner dessert. I know it isn't sustainable for the long run, yet I just HAVE to change something, I'm relying too much on that sugar fix after dinner.... and then I get slack and I add more and more sweets throughout the day again, like a drug addict.
I'm not totally crushed and low, don't worry, just desperate for change. Tomorrow will be a new Day 1... actually I think I won't be counting binge free days anymore... it just makes me focus on that number which isn't a good thing in my case I reckon... so tomorrow will be Day 142... my journey started back then in January, and I have changed no matter how much I struggle presently.....

    I think maybe cutting sugar out altogether for a little bit is a good plan for you. I like the idea of not counting your binge free days anymore - whilst it might be good to keep track and feel liberated by it, i think sometimes it can work negatively. Good luck with your new plan of action!

    Both my daughter and I cut out all visible sugar, emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon and have fruit for dessert.
    My daughter has lost 8 Kilos in three months and I lost 65 Kilos over the last 10 years .. The last 35 or so kilos with Sparkpeople over the last four years.
    Just saying it can be done.. hugs Susie emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon

    There is a challenge on SP for trying to go through a "sugar detox" that I did a few months ago - I didn't make it all the way through but it definitely was good for me at the time. Maybe you can try it? I agree with the other comments to try a little time without dessert and see how it goes. You can always go back to dessert when it is less of a trigger food. Make sure to get out of the kitchen and do something else you like so that you're not thinking about dessert when you used to be eating it. Good luck, just get back on track and start where you left off.

    It honestly won't hurt you and could be a real benefit. Instead of a sweet dessert, try a piece of fruit or a handful of grapes as your "sweet." I've learned to totally enjoy PLAIN iced tea and don't like it sweetened at all anymore, only because I decided to try to stop sweetening drinks and gave up sodas at the same time. Now a soda is TOO SWEET and not pleasant to drink on most occasions. You can do the same sort of thing and possibly create a new set of preferences for yourself that will serve you well.

    You HAVE changed, and you HAVE made so much progress. Cutting out sugar for a while sounds like a really good idea. Get it out of your system completely so you're not dependent on your sugar fix. I had to do the same thing and it was hard in the beginning but worth it. You can do it!

    try for a week and see if you can manage that, then increase it. Change does takes time. You have come a long way since you started. emoticon
