Planned a binge day because more then 2 binge free days in a row has me pulling my hair out and feeling bad about myself when I plan not to binge and fail. Weekends are hard so I'm taking the first weekend off and planning some binge days to g... Mon, 4 Feb 2013 15:03:13 EST Battle with Binge Eating! - Starting off Strong Today (I'm writing this at midnight on 2/1) is the 2nd day in a row that I haven't binged. Yesterday wasn't so hard because it was the first day and I figured, it's just one day. Also, having eaten so much yesterday my stomach hurt and I felt so disgusting and fed up with myself, day 1 wasn't so hard. I worked yesterday and did some fun errands with my husband after work, so that helped distract me. Plus, I had one of my favorite "good" foods for dinner, which I looked forward to all day... Sat, 2 Feb 2013 00:09:41 EST My Battle with Binge Eating! I was at my wits end dealing with these uncontrollable urges to binge! I was so frustrated and fed up I reached out on the message boards on 1/25 asking for advice and help to fight my battle with binging. The responses I received were so encouraging it motivated me to commit to fight binge eating. I usually start something full force, only to have one bad day and fall off the wagon and quit. Whether it be a new hard core exercise regimen, or a crazy fad diet, or a promise to quit binging... Fri, 1 Feb 2013 23:56:47 EST Trying to Manage Emotional Eating after the Death of the World's Best Dad So last year I had a weight loss set back when my beloved dog, Molly, died. I was feeling depressed and just buried my feeling in food... lots of food. Well, I beat that and got back on track and met my goal! Whoo Hoo! I thought that last summer was tough with the death of my dog, but this summer was even worse! <BR> <BR> My dad was diagnosed with Burkitt's Lymphoma and two weeks later he died. I did not see that one coming! I noticed he was breathing funny and didn't eat as much as ... Mon, 23 Nov 2009 21:26:32 EST Cheating! I was posting a comment on the message boards about how I splurged yesterday because it was my anniversary. As I was typing it I realized something... I thought I was really treating myself to celebrate by cheating on my diet and eating a lot of unhealthy food. Really, I was just cheating myself, not treating myself! I was cheating myself out of achieving my goals, cheating myself out of being healthy, cheating myself out of success, and cheating myself out of feeling better about myself.... Wed, 30 Jul 2008 01:41:28 EST Your honest opinion about my bikini pictures please... I want your honest opinions of me in my bikini please. I won't be offended because I am asking for your honest opinions and I know that I will get some negative opinions and maybe some positive opinions. <BR> <BR> In this picture I weigh about the same as I do now, about 108 lbs., give or take a couple pounds. This is a picture of me on my honeymoon in the Bahamas. I know I am a little chubby but I was wondering if I can get away with wearing this bikini or if maybe I should wear a tank... Mon, 28 Jul 2008 23:57:21 EST Bye Molly! I will miss you... We had to put our beloved Molly to sleep!!! I've been feeling so depressed. I miss her so much. I can't believe I'll never see that furry little face again or pat her soft fur... I started SparkPeople when I was desperate to lose weight for my vacation in early May. I almost reached my goal weight (that's okay, my goal weight was very difficult, a little over 2 lbs. per wk) and felt pretty good by the time my vacation rolled around. When we came back from vacation, Molly was paralyzed! ... Thu, 5 Jun 2008 21:55:00 EST My Virtual Model ( Last night I went on to make my very own virtual model. It was so exciting and motivating to see how I could potentially look at my goal weight. I can't wait to lose weight and get in the bikini in Jamaica! I feel so motivated today! I'm sooooo pumped!!! I'm going to get on that elliptical machine, stick to my calorie range, and live binge free! The biggest obstacle for me is binging. I LOVE food!!! No, wait... I HATE food! Ahhh!!! The thought of living without binging just ... Tue, 12 Feb 2008 12:42:10 EST 1st day of This is my first day. I'm really excited because I know I'm going to lose weight this time. I've been trying to lose weight for a while. Actually, I have lost about 18 lbs. I've recently gotten off track and my progress has halted. In fact I had lost about 22 lbs. but gained a few pounds back. I was feeling really discouraged and losing motivation so I knew I had to do something to get back on track. I really hope this helps. <BR> <BR> I love that little tracker thing, and I can't wai... Fri, 8 Feb 2008 00:36:29 EST
