I fell off the wagon and I fell hard.

Tuesday, May 13, 2014

The last 3 days my calories have gone from 1500 max to neatly 3000 a day. I am back to binging at night, which is mentally and physically exhausting. I was up many times during the nights with digestive problems and my stomach was so distended it really looked pregnant. This morning I over ate slightly again. No idea why I never learn my lesson.

    Don't beat yourself up! Just use it as a learning tool. Are you eating enough during the day? Sometimes if I don't keep myself fed during the day, I find myself ready to eat anything and everything in site later at night. It's hard to balance it all. Especially if you've been "good" all day. It easy to fall prey to overeating when you are at the end of your day (tired, worn out, and possibly underfed).

And hey, at least you were on the wagon to fall off! That in itself is a real, positive, step in the right direction. So, dust yourself off, and hop back on that wagon. emoticon

    Is there a tiny step that you can take in a positive direction?
Do one thing, any small good thing for your health, and focus on that small success. Even if you are still struggling with the rest of your plan, you can know that something good is happening. You can build on this tiny success also... emoticon emoticon

    Sounds like there may be something emotional going on - at least that is usually the case with me. I hope you are able to figure it out soon. I sincerely don't have any great advice but at least I can give a emoticon because I've been there an I know how it feels.

    Some lessons take longer to learn. Good luck!
