Remembered that I am trying to decrease my dependence on "eating props" to get to and through distasteful tasks. Still haven't gotten to the task, but haven't eaten, either!

Reminded myself that I had a very nice meal coming up and I would enjoy it more if I waited.

I did give in today to a bag of Gardetto Rye Chips (4.5 servings), but I did track it honestly and painfully. I think that was a big step in the right direction. I had not done that in awhile, so I do not feel horrible about it and I am very happy that I accepted responsibility for my choice to cheat.

I gave myself a mini cheat day and it was wonderful.
Went to a party with lots of great choices along with lots of forbidden foods.
Yes, went over on the protein; and the nuts; and the cheeses; even had a bite of birthday cake.
Do I feel guilty? No way! Not gonna beat myself up either.

Now, back to reality!

Today, I really focused on how good my body is feeling, how much more energy I have to spend on things I would like to get accomplished, rather then spending the time feeling sick and lethargic in bed. When I spend that time not being sick and lethargic, I get more done, therefore being less stressed and less prone to binging. It's quite the cycle!

I have also been keeping up with posting on my blog every day in order to be accountable. When the thought to binge arises, I think of the fact that I would have to be accountable, and that deters me.
or it has for the past 13 days!

I was thinking of binging today, and almost gave in. Given that I AM calorie counting right now, but at a safe (and higher) 2000 calories, I wrote a blog on the 20 reasons why 2000 calories is more then enough!

I had bought a container of chocolate cream cheese only because it was on sale. I reminded myself that I don't want to be binger or bring or stimulate old patterns. The spread wasn't very satisfying and I have no plans to have guests soon who might like it, so I put it in the compost bin.

TODAY I TRACKED EVERY BITE!!

I would normally track most things, binge at some point and quit tracking. Today, I succumbed to eating a whole box if Reeses Pieces. I decided to track it. Interestingly, later this evening when another binge episode was hovering, my thoughts actually convinced me that I had enough calories remaining to eat "just a bit more." I opened the Spark Tracker and noticed that I was already way over my calories for today. Just seeing that made me realize that I usually fool myself into thinking I am not eating as much as I really am...even though I really do know it.

So for today that realization helped me avoid another binge. I hope it is enough to help on a regular basis. Life happens - now back on the plan.

Visit my blog and share your thoughts. I would appreciate it : www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_jo

Delay is often a very powerful tactic.

This morning I've been reading about voluntary simplicity and how to reduce expenses to retire. It's helped keep me from nibbling.

Yesterday when I felt like bingeing on a box of chocolates I'd gotten as present from a client, I decided to wait until 4 pm (that was at around noon). If I still wanted them then I could have 3 or 4 chocolates, I told myself.
When 5 pm came and went I said I'd wait until 8 pm and then maybe have 2 of them.

I ended up not eating any chocolate yesterday.

When my husband said 'you know I'll always join you' when I was about to (continue overeating / start to binge and) reach for a second piece of candy, I said 'well maybe I shouldn't have this then' and didn't.

Noticed how full I was already and thought about how I wanted to feel less full later, so I skipped the extra food I was thinking about eating.

Today is my day one after a LONG time. I just keep cleaning today. I cant believe how dependent on food I am and how I really must use it to suffocate feelings. Work tonight should help keep me busy, but I work in a restaurant so its SO easy to just give in and eat what I want. Cleaning has definatly helped me out today!

I asked my husband for his thought when I was getting totally torn by food cravings (I think because of eating wheat). Agreed with him that I'd better just stop eating, and made a cup of chickory coffee while watching a favorite TV program.

I have set my planner to send me a notification at 5 pm to remind me to eat a normal portion (in other words not overeat) at supper every day. And it helps!
So the past few days I had only one portion of starchy foods at supper and ate extra vegetables instead of that second helping of potatoes.

I reminded myself of how horribly I slept last night after not stopping myself and how hard today was to get through as a result. I don't want that again tonight. I can't afford to 'lose more time' or use it inefficiently.

I had put the chocolate mousse in my cart in the grocery store thinking I would 'try to' have it only in small portions over several days. And moved into another aisle.
Then I thought 'who am I kidding' and went back and put it back!

Kathryn, I love hearing when members actually implement recommended strategies. It helps me so much more than when people recommend something in general because when it comes down to it, we have to actually DO the things we need to, not just know what they are.

Distinguishing between the irrational "eat" voice and the rational voice is essential! I'm looking forward to more reports of you keeping up with these strategies, and even examples of moments when you were confronted with food and rationality wins over "eat." Oh, I'm so excited for you! Keep going and you will be a different person in a year.

I'm three days binge free today!

I've been trying to put a number of different methods in to practice to try and re-direct my energy into something other than bingeing, especially when I'm alone!

On Monday I meditated after dinner to try and get more in touch with my natural hunger signals.
Yesterday, I went for a walk in the sun after dinner, and I played a guided walking meditation on my ipod as I walked. Meditation seems to help me become more mindful of the little voice in my head saying "eat eat eat" all of the time; and it lets me distinguish between that voice and the logical voice. It helps me think more long term.

I feel less frazzled now- so that's good!

To my own surprise I put half of my delicious breakfast back in the fridge today. I wanted to go ride my bike and knew I'd feel to full if I ate all of it. That's a first. (On other days I'd have eaten all of it anyway).

I was not in danger of bingeing but did get hungry for lunch very early- not fake hunger, either. I determined to distract myself and got involved in a rather anxious telephone call with my mortgage loan servicer. That will take my hunger away! But I got the information I needed and saw that indeed, even authentic hunger can go underground when I am busy.

Hi everyone,

I'm one full day clear of my last binge. Today I meditated for 15 minutes after my dinner to help me engage more mindfully with my satiety.

Got offered a big dessert yesterday when visiting my parents. I had to think hard because I was full / satisfied already after supper. Managed to ask my father (the cook) to make me part of the dessert and to put it in a container so I could take it home to eat later.
It felt very good to do it that way.

I like the idea of the cashier tactic, but how can you pay before you choose the item?

Yesterday I knew that I would pick up daughter, we would go to our evening performance at the theatre and I would be rather tired when we finally got home.

I prepared a salad with carrots and sunflowerseed and had a chickenbreast from the freezer. Ordered pizza for daughter and then prepared my food and had it in the kitchen, did not want to smell that pizza...registred my food before it was ready and as I could see that it would give me a very nice number for the day in total I kept to my plan...daughter wanted to have popcorn afterwards and I said no as she already had pizza... AND knowing that that bowl would tempt me...

Went to bed early....

If I am in the sotre and have an instant attack of craving for something I tell myself I can have - I just need to pass the cashier and pay first and then I can go back in and get it... I have never gone back again once I passed the cashier.

Tonight I was coming home from a visit with a friend and stopped at a supermarket that has a bargain bin section. While there, I had the fleeting thought to go buy a previous binge food. I avoided that aisle and just told myself to keep moving only toward the food I was truly interested in. I made it out of there with no problems.

Yesterday - I went to bed, and in the bed I did some crosswords before I put out the light.

What I have done the past month to distract myself from thoughts about food are:

- excercising piano 30 minutes.
– borrowed a book about "cartoonist workshop" and do some of the examples in there.

declutter for ten minutes (with timer...)
