A rough go

Wednesday, January 22, 2014

We all have them but today is really rough for me. I just want a piece of bread, no wait I want a couple. I feel terrible already so why not feel more crappy?

I get up and weigh myself and the scale says I am up .6 pounds well maybe because I was eating at 2 am. In addition I probably only slept 6 hours which really affects my number on the scale. My first binge in 8 days, I ate 4 slices of deli style honey ham and eat smart kale salad at 2 am and nothing satisfied me.

Today I spilled my Max's cereal on the counter and I feel a bundles of nerves. The time of the month is around the corner and my hormones are wrecking havoc on my self-control, my sense of purpose and my confidence.

Last month (TOM) it didn't seem to affect me or if it did I just gave in to the cravings. I really don't want to today because I don't want to start over again with my gluten free streak. In addition I want to rid my body of the junk. I want to feel better and to get rid of the headaches.

Enough ranting, the struggles are what make us stronger. Keep pushing and keep sparking.

    Just keep on pushing the long you keep trying the easier it gets. One thing I find that help is find thing that you like and is good for you. One of my favorite snack is celery and low Calories cheese spread.. emoticon

    You can do this! Don't give in, no matter what! You've set yourself on the course to health and you owe it to yourself and to your family to keep going. When I binge and then go off sugar/wheat again it always takes me a good 10 days to 2 weeks to get rid of all the junk. I have really bad withdrawal - headaches, stomach aches, depression, lethargy, irritability, etc.

Something I've been doing that has really been helping to keep myself in check is to imagine the food I'm craving crawling with maggots or covered in mold - it takes care of the craving really quickly!!! Sets off my gag reflex. emoticon
