Well I just wanted to say that being on this team is really helping me. I nearly succumbed just then to a binge and once again like I did yesterday I managed to realise what was going on before I started and the reasons why and have stopped myself.
I had eaten my lunch but then ended up eating all of my childrens leftovers too! I felt really annoyed with myself and full up and thought I've completely blown it and I bet this makes me put on weight this week. THat then made me fell really upset and I just wanted to go grab the chocolate biscuits in the cupboard and scoff them. I know I wouldnt have stopped there, I would have moved on to crisps, bread whatever I could get my hands on until I felt sick. Then I might have followed up by purging!! All this becuase I ate some leftovers!!
And the funny thing was that I felt FULL so it definately was nothing to do with being hungry.
Before I joined this team I was not really thinking about the reasons or the situations that led me to bingeing and I think it is great. Just before I let myself do it I thought about having to post that I had broken my binge free streak and the reasons why and It helped me identify the reasons (Before I thought about it I didnt really know that was how I was feeling)
I eat my childrens leftovers every day and it annoys me so much but I have no willpower to stop myself and quite often this can trigger a binge. I was just wondering if with the team leaders agreement I could maybe set up a leftovers streak thread too where I ( and anyone else who suffers with this problem) could try and get a streak going where I track how many days I can get through not eating leftovers. I think this might really help me.
If the team leaders think this is not the right place that is fine I will understand. :)
So the end of my story is that I avoided a binge and instead grabbed a glass of water and am sitting typing this now.

Finish each day and be done with it. You have done what you could; some blunders and absurdities have crept in; forget them as soon as you can. Tomorrow is a new day; you shall begin it serenely and with too high a spirit to be encumbered with your old nonsense. ~Ralph Waldo Emerson
