Day 21 Binge Free!

Thursday, August 22, 2013

I am so encouraged that I seem to have turned some kind of corner in my battle against binges. One of the key things lately is that I retrained my brain to seek activities other than eating to fill the spaces in my day when I usually would be in the kitchen looking for food. It's strange, and I think there must be some other factors involved that clicked in my head, but I don't even get urges to binge. I'm hardly having anything sweet, which may stimulate binges, but I'm deciding I don't want the end result that comes from having a little. Why have a little when I know it will lead to more. I don't want to risk it. My goals are more important than having the candy bar or piece of cake.

Two quotes I've mentioned before, but really mean a lot to me, so they are worth sharing again:

Things that matter most must never be at the mercy of things that matter least.––by Goethe


Discipline is just choosing between what you want now and what you want most.

I think the second one really has empowered me to get out of the bondage to binge eating. To anyone else who now struggles with binges and overeating, THERE IS HOPE!
