Bren~ I'm glad your visit went well!

DLP~ Great job for a diversion!

I have finished two days of training at the hospital and today I have one massage to do at my office. I think my struggles with food have been stress related with the move to Denver and building my massage clients from scratch here. Work related stress...blech!

Personally...things are great...I'm so very glad I moved here and my gf and I are moving forward in our relationship...yay!

So...wishing all a sane and peaceful day with food...recently I've been telling myself a line I heard from my therapist the last time we met...

The only change is NOW...

Simple but strong when I listen to myself say it...lol

Today is Day 5...

Day 4

Streak 2

Yesterday was a good day for me. I was planning to buy some binge food but managed to avoid it. I told myself that I have a healthy dinner waiting for me and I can eat until I am full.

That worked.

Day 4-I did over indulge with wine and cheese after a healthy dinner, but no binge.

I did get in a great workout (24 mile bike ride and then 440 kettlebell swings) So, I don't feel to bad about the over eating. I try to eat clean, but I still have an extreme love for cheese, crackers, and wine. I have been doing really good staying away from chips, though. That is my problem binge food. It doesn't even sound good right now. emoticon

WELCOME BACK LOVEAQUA!

Great news regarding my visit with my pal yesterday. She didn't really focus on work as the main topic of conversation much, which was such a relief for me.
Have a great day guys,

Day 18

Saw all the various pumpkin ales on the grocery store shelves today, made me want to scream, "It's only August!!!!" Kind of like hearing Xmas songs in the stores in October. No matter how old I get, summer always seems to go by too fast. emoticon

Day 2
HOWDY Hippie!!! : )

I have a good friend coming over today to watch me for a bit while my husband goes and runs errands (and hopefully gets in a nice bike ride to clear his mind of all the stress that comes with caring for me).
I love this gal and worked with her for 14 years at my old job. Being on disability now has been tough already mentally, but but hearing about the work gossip is a constant topic with this pal, and I kind of want to avoid it. It just reminds me of how far removed I am from the work place. Will actively try to redirect conversation topics to non-work stuff should she go that route.
And not react with emo eating even if the topic does keep tumbling back to work stuff.

Happy Sunday guys,
Bren

I'm starting a new job today as a Unit Clerk in a hospital....nervous and excited!

I do believe this will be day 3 BF...

Thanks everybody!

Being accountable by posting has made this streak so much more attainable..

Also, when I slip I feel like I am more likely to get on plan because of these forums.

On Day 13! Narrowly escaped yesterday, BUT managed to keep calories under my personal "binge cap" of 2300. I did not not throw in the towel and stop tracking. Instead I stopped myself.

Day 21! I can't believe it. It's been years since I've gone this long without a binge.

The key for me now is to not celebrate by overeating. I've gotten myself stuck by using food/binging as a way to reward and punish myself.

Day 7

Blue had a stuffed animal since he was little - he has finally pulled all the stuffing out of it. This morning he even took some stuffing out of the garbage can and respread it on the floor. It is hard to believe he will be a year in September.

I have had a good day with out a binge today makes me feel good. I am putting 25 cents in a piggy bank when I don't binge and 50 cents when I go to the supermarket and don't bring home trigger foods. I think hearing that money clink in the bank will help me. And when I make it through 21 days I will buy myself a new shirt at my favorite thrift store.
I am not making any foods "no" foods but will just eat one serving in the Starbucks at the supermarket. I think just having two cookies at a time is better then taking a few home to"share" with my hubby. Last time I bought cookies home to share with hubby I bought 4 from the bakery in the supermarket and he got 1/2 a cookie. If little tricks and habits that work are better then telling myself I can eat like a thin person. No I can't I am a food addict and have to have plans in place to make this work.

I AM A FIGHTER, A WARRIOR I AM DETERMINED TO NOT BE OVER WEIGHT . I WILL STAY ON TRACK
I choice to conquer!!!!!

Day 18.

LYLA- that's the best kind of mistake, eh? One more BF day under your belt. Yes!

Tawney- keep the good thoughts coming my way with the AC. I need it!

Unfortunately the business that installed our specialized AC has gone out of business apparently (small business), and we are having a tough time finding anyone who will willingly make the trek to our small town to repair. You'd think we lived in Egypt since they want us to pay for time and mileage. Silly. But we will probably pay of course.

Ordering fans on amazon today since I can't drive to store and buy myself currently.
Ordering up some extra sanity emotionally too, so as not to react to my stress, by emo eating.

Be GREAT guys!

Day 17,
Tawney- like that new photo. Looks so serene!
Our AC died in the living room where I spend most of my day (already covered with ice packs), so now I will likely by piling on twice the ice packs to stay stable today.
I'm sooooooooo used to old bad patterns of reacting to high pain by chowing down on food, but I will practice my breathing throughout today.
I will not die from this pain today.
I don't need to react to pain today with old (unhelpful) coping mechanisms. Not emotionally eating today is actually a great way to be kind to my body!

Be great guys,
Bren

Starting Day 1

Changing Turtle - I so so so get it! Six hrs of back to school shopping on Friday, I bought a treat at the last store being over tired and hungry. I did fine on Friday - but Saturday it screamed for me until I finished it and other junk food in my house. Sunday was not much better. I went to bed last night feeling uncomfortably full and not happy with myself.

So day one - read, write, plan

Changing-Turtle -- Nothing wrong with Day #1. I humbly recommend not saying "Never". That too can trigger binges (if not today, later). I think it's better to say you are choosing to take a break from those foods that you consider triggers and you are choosing to accustom your taste buds to other types of food.. (Just my opinion.) I know that most of the time I eat my trigger foods fine now, but every so often, I eat too much. Once a year eating too much of them is not a horrible way to live. emoticon

Today is a good day to start over emoticon

I had bought trigger foods that lead to a 2 1/2 day binge. Starting over again now that I ate up the trigger foods. I am an addict and need to keep away from certain foods, cookies, sour dough bread and potato chips. I can have tortilla chips in the house and have just eat one oz every other day or so and be okay but bring potato chips in the house and it is the start of a full blown binge.

I AM A FIGHTER, A WARRIOR I AM DETERMINED TO NOT BE OVER WEIGHT . I WILL STAY ON TRACK
I choice to conquer!!!!!

Who I am really keeps surprising me.

Kathryn

Day 4

Yesterday was a good day. I got a lot of little things done. I was able to bake a cake and have one piece. Today I am continuing on. I had my weekly conversation with my aunt (who is in her 90's). Elders have so much perspective to give me - I enjoy learning from her so much.
Our season is starting to change. The crops are turning and the days have shortened. Fall is on its way.
I wish everyone peace with food today and also enjoyment of what you eat.

Day 16 I had a mini cheat meal that went a bit to far. I threw away all of the unhealthy food so I don't continue to overeat.

Started the day out right with a healthy breakfast that was just okay, lunch will be better. Breakfast was low calorie just did not taste all that great. Snack at 10:00 will be some very sweet tasty grapes.

Day 4

Last night I came VERY close to bingeing. I did overeat and went over my daily calories, but was able to stop myself and did not eat to the point of discomfort. So altho I'm not happy with myself for evening eating, I am glad that I was able to stop before I was totally out of control.

I really need to stay away from peanuts. They are my biggest trigger.

Already walked today, feeling energized. Off to start college shopping.
