Hi and welcome to the team! You came to a great place to learn good habits. Consistency is also a biggy for me. I start and stop. It seems like I just forget to do what I need to do. Right now I'm doing ok but I know the binging can start anytime. Good luck on reaching your goals!
I've been on and off Spark People for several years and came back a couple of months ago only to repeat my cycle of starting and stopping. I do great for a couple of days and then I stop tracking my food and that is my doom. Glad to have found this team because I have had an unhealthy relationship with food all my life. My main problem is that I eat a sensible lunch and then all hell breaks loose! I go on a food marathon - sometimes eating snacks right up to dinner time and then right around 9 p.m. I'm looking for anything and everything to snack away on. I am a food junkie who needs to shed 25 pounds because my joints are screaming at me to do it. I know what I should be doing and what I should eat when I get a "gotta have something to eat" attack, but instead of reaching for the celery or baby carrots, I reach for ice cream, pretzels, cheese or cookies. I even find myself hiding what I eat from DH because I feel so ashamed of myself, but not ashamed enough or I suppose I would stop. I look forward to reading your posts and posting my thoughts as well.
For God so loved the world that He sent His only begotten Son.........
