I feel like Bambi on the ice

Tuesday, October 22, 2013

I am having a devil of a time with snacking again. I was doing so well, then I slipped up (once, then twice and then to infinity). I want to get back on track but I can't seem to get traction these days. I know I should not be hard on myself... I didn't get this way in 1 day and sure shouldn't expect to change course in 1 day... if I ran a red light this morning I wouldn't run the red lights all day... blah blah blah. IT just isn't clicking for me for some reason. I think I foolishly tried to decrease my carbs and increase my protein. Problem being, I was training for a long run and I think my body fought back. And since my body likes Little Debbie's and ding dongs that is what I craved. Now I amin the ridiculous, awful cycle of binge eating and guilt.

Member Comments About This Blog Post:

    Binge eating is CAUSED by guilt. Afterwards you feel remorse which is a step down from guilt.

The way out of this cycle is to first STOP the binging. Then, start writing instead of binging. Take a look at all the thoughts coming up fast and furious and just LOOK at them. They are only thoughts they only have the power you give to them.

    The situation you described certainly is a battle for some of us. When I am faced with getting back on track, I make promises to my Creator God for just one day at a time. I know if I promise myself, I will likely not follow through; however, when I promise my Abba Father, I will not break such a promise. Facing the battles along this wonderful journey in this manner works for this gal.

I do pray that you find what works for you!

God bless!
