Binge over - Help requested

Tuesday, June 03, 2014

Binging sucks
(You all know that right)
I just finished the longest binge that I have had in about 5 years
10 days of chocolate, chocolate and more chocolate - I made myself absolutely sick
Getting on the scale yesterday hurt but but I needed to get it to stop

What I did and will do to prevent this from happening:
1. Exercised a lot for the past 4 days - cycling, hiking, walking
2. Got on the scale and got honest - 6 lbs in 10 days OUCH
3. Forgave myself - forward is the direction I am going - not interested in looking back...
4. Logged every morsel today and yesterday
5. Reset my spark page - new pic, new goals, new words on first page
and I took a lot of deep breaths

Goal - be healthy tomorrow without worrying about yesterday
Everything past that is too far in the future

I am really bad at asking for help and support
but I could really use it right now

    You have had some pretty major, game changing experiences happen to you over the last year! Be kind to yourself and remember that Jesus loves you! You are worth every effort to keep pressing onward. Chin up! You have inspired me so many times with your fitness adventures and your vacation photos! I believe you can do this, one day at a time...just love yourself, right where you are! You are a beautiful girl! No need to be perfect, just make the next best decision. emoticon emoticon

    You can do it. It is hard to stop binge cycles. I am trying to come off one myself (doing ok so far-5 days)
I am proud of you for recognizing it and working hard to overcome!

You've got this.

    What can be said that hasn't been said by me or yourself in the past? I'm here for you always as you have been for me. And we both now we possess the strength and knowledge to right the wrong and move forward. And you will. And after I eat this Hershey's Kiss, I will too, lol. Oh, we need to laugh in life. And now that you are smiling know that your SParkFriends are going through that same things you are and we are all in this together. Keep SParking!

Take care and stay healthy

    Even with the binge, you are a ROCK STAR! Don't forget that! I love the new pictures and the new perspective. And those quickly gained pounds are not as hard to get rid of as the ones we've had for a while so don't worry about them too much. They will soon be gone! Stay strong!

    Asking for help is so hard isn't! We all want to be strong and push through, but asking for help is so brave! Binging sucks, but we do what we know. The best help that can be offered it to get into touch the the emotional reasons why you turn to food. Feelings as so pesky, but until the root of the problem is dealt with, we stay stuck! Be strong and think before you reach for the candy bar....

    YOU have made the biggest step in getting over this. It sounds like you've gotten back on track, and you're determined to change. It's painfully hard to stay the course sometimes, but I know you can do it.

    You have a great plan in place and YES I know about the binging - I too have regained and reset all tickers on June 1st and updated my page.

    Today is a new day. Yesterday is as long ago as you let it be. Just think about an unhappy tummy and not letting that happen again today. I find exercise and tracking help deter me, I won't feel good and I'll have to track it.

I just restarted last Saturday and so far so good. Best of luck, we're here for you! Enjoy the nice weather of summer:)

    Hi Hollynn,
Yes, you can do this you have completed the first step realizing that the binging has to stop,
you have come so far and look amazing girlfriend, I know once you get back on track you'll
hit it full force. I too need to get back on the wagon I fell off about 6 months ago and haven't been able to catch up with it since and together with SP we can do this..

    Thanks for sharing this! We all face our issues. I'm no stranger to bingeing. Have you addressed the emotional cause, i.e., what was going on these past ten days that triggered the binge?
