A binge scare.

Friday, November 22, 2013

I've been chugging along and then out of the blue. I just wanted to eat everything in sight tonight. I ate dinner and then just wanted to keep eating and eating. I wasn't hungry just wanting everything. I ate a bowl of cereal, pudding snack cups, pop chips, and some fun size candy bars left over from Halloween. It was almost like an outer body experience. Just trying to think things through and curious why? The feeling lasted about 2 hours and now it's gone? It's strange because I haven't been eating out of my range all month? I'm not too upset about it just reflecting and trying to figure out a trigger so I can avoid it again. This time around on my weight loss journey I'm trying to be more reflective and introspective about the whole thing. I'm kind of proud of myself in some respects that I did track everything I over-eat. I was kind of surprised it wasn't as bad as I thought. I think it makes it real when I count it and face it.

    I have these same things, sometimes even eating ridiculous amounts of things that aren't even good. I'll never understand why, but continue to keep working on controlling the binges!

    yup I was kind of like that today, just reallly hungry for some reason, I over did it without realizing, I think for me planning out what I'm going to eat the day before might be the way to go. You could have been going through sugar withdrawals or something.

    I just had a fantastic class on emotional eating. The triggers can be super subtle. The behavior therapist told us that we form really strong attachments to situations and a food and it can be something very far back in our childhood. The association of pleasure with the trigger and food becomes intense for us. Stopping and thinking about why you want to eat emotionally can help you stop the trigger.

    I have done this,too, and it always catches me off guard. I track it, too, which makes me less likely to fall too often.

    I have had the same experience. I think it just happens sometimes. I think it is good that you are reflecting on the experience. Maybe next time you will be able to stop long enough to ask yourself why. You may be stressed and don't realize it.

    Keep Sparking
