I had a not-great day on July 5th and had a binge. But I've been on track since then, even navigating the dangerous waters of a potluck party and a birthday pub crawl. Today is Day 16, and I'm five days from 21.

Pam emoticon on the weight loss No foods should be no foods but some foods we have to deal with them in ways that are easy for us. Like me and cookies can't have a package in the house but what I do is go have two once a week.

Day 9 no binge

Hi, I'm Emily. I need this challenge a lot! I have gained about 30 pounds since last summer and I believe binges played a large part of that. My goal is to focus on minimizing this behavior. I started a 100 day no bingeing challenge with a friend and quickly found that was not a good starting spot. So, I am here, today will be day 1, and I will get as far as I can. I'll check in daily.

Have a great day!

Day 5

I work today. I am more aware that many of my binges start there. Food won't call me at home but it screams at work. I pray for that awareness today.

Have a great day all!

Okay...there's more-so sorry! At my weigh in Thursday I was DOWN .6 lbs. It felt so great!

I was always focusing on the weight number, obsessing on "no-no foods" because they might "trigger" a binge. All of this rigidity and restriction usually ended up in binge eating. Now, I am learning-slowly a little light has come on. I can work on developing a "sane" relationship with food. (thanks OOLALA) One with more freedom and sensible choices and yes, maybe even some humor! (like in that movie, "What About Bob"-I am baby-stepping)
I am even learning to be kinder to myself. THANK YOU SPARK FRIENDS!

Move More!

Hello Everyboddee! This is my longest time not posting! I read all your posts though because I care for all of you and learn so much!

Day 10-I am doing very good with food right now. However, I know the "food faeries" could appear at any time! lol I loved that OOLALA! I wrote it down, made me smile.

LYLA- way to go on your weight loss and on DAY 13 (probably more now)

RAINBOW-Congrats! on 13 days! Regardless, you did 13 days! Way to get right back started again.

Kathryn-it is so true! WE ARE STRONG! Congrats on STOP PING!!

JOL1-love your posts girl! Just looking/reading them takes energy!!

LlMOM2TWINS-Welcome! I am a binge eater too. I have learned so many helpful things from my Spark Friends on here!

TAWNEY-Hope you had a great Birthday! Really liked your post on 7/16 abt "no strict food rules". I am just now beginning to see that I may have a life of less food rigidity and be okay. Thanks for sharing your thoughts honestly and your experiences.

OOLALA- I want you to know that you have helped me so much! I trust you have a great first day back at work. My friend and Sunday School teacher utilizes a 'RULE OF 10" when it comes to organizing. This is not a strength of mine so I started with his Rule of 10. He says he daily at the end of his work day, puts a minimum of 10 items back in their designated space or tosses them. Well, I started that and my goodness-I have a cool, uncluttered coffee table, I have a beautiful closet now! Amazing! I even took pictures of my closet and put it on facebook for my friends-who would not have believed it had I not posted the pix! lol

Sorry, this is so long but I have really missed you all!

Move More!

Mini binge yesterday. Objectively, had a good day of reasonable food today, but I can feel so full on so little these days that it feels almost like a binge. Just not willing to eat teeny meals.

Feeling like I'm in limbo. Another Sunday being afloat with organizing that didn't get done and my summer break over as of tomorrow. I have actually gotten some stuff done and it makes me feel good to see one cleared space and others reduced, but someone was supposed to come help me today and she got sick and cancelled. I never found my momentum again today. I am not in terrible spirits but was hoping to feel a bit more at peace with going back to work. Not going to eat about it.

Day 8 no binge

I have a 3 by 5 card notebook that has saying from a Beck book. I had one set up by where I was reading last night that said "Yes you can be strong". Every time I felt like getting up and raiding the pantry I read that card, keep me on track.

LIMOM2TWINS emoticon jump right in and work out that binge problem with us, this team helps me a lot

Tawney emoticon on handling that chocolate so well

Day 7 Last night almost turned in to a binge as I had cereal for the first time in months. I love to eat it dry with raisins kind of like trail mix but lower calorie. I stopped before it got into a binge.

No binge reward emoticon soon I will fit into a skinny dress

Day 5

I cleaned strawberries for hours yesterday. I am lucky to have many choices on TV so the time went quickly. They will be super to have in the freezer. I think a strawberry smoothie would be good for breakfast this morning.
I enjoyed half a hazelnut chocolate bar and decaf coffee for a snack while I was working. It feels so good to be able to eat foods sanely. In the past chocolate may have been a binge trigger for me. Yesterday I enjoyed it and I did not even think of binging.

It is misty this morning. I will take some oats to our neighbors later - our hrses are visiting since their fence was burnt in the fire. They will also appreciate some of these strawberries. Have a great day everyone.

Nice to meet you, too! Anyone can jump in any time. Some are relatively new; some of us have just been working 21-day streaks for years. I think Spark needs a team that is devoted to sane eating without necessarily focusing on weight loss or calories. People can do what they want, but those are not the focus here. Not bingeing and working toward reasonable, joyful eating and respect for the bodies we have are.

HI all! I hope that you do not mind me jumping in but I am a binge eater that is trying to get a handle on controlling it before it even starts & realizing one is about to start, recognizing it as it in progress and then stopping it before it gets to out of control. Today was a binge free day so I am going to count it has day 1

nice to meet you all!

We had a thunder storm in the night. It is cooler and windy this morning.. I am off to the pool and then hopefully into the garden - the weeds should pull easily now that it is wet.

Day 3 for me.
HAPPY BELATED BDAY TAWNEY!!!

OOLALA: ahhhhh eating fairies sound MUCH less dangerous. Amazing how simply changing a term can take away the power I've given it. Thanks for that suggestion. Fairies back off! Hee Hee.

Did well with food after all, which was great.
We are flying home today, a week early! Wahoo! Docs will contact me when all results come back. Then my local hospital will take over from there (thank goodness!).

Very high pain today and my stitches and sutures are screaming bloody murder on my left calf area. Supposed to wear compression calf sleeves for flight home but I can't seem to talk myself into doing it. Ack! Will do the best I can. Will listen to my meditation music and truly decide to make it through the flight back home, dealing wih my pain at 30k feet, Hee Hee.


Happy Friday guys!!!!

Forgive yourself, VG! The sooner, the better. It takes time to learn new habits. Not even tennis pros get the ball over the net every single time. Be gentle now, but remember very carefully what you were thinking before you took those bites. Then, calmly think of reasons those thoughts were misleading, and vow to pull those rational thoughts out next time. We don't have to wait until the thoughts/urges go away to meet them without fear and with calm resolve. They are illusions, and will eventually dissolve in the warm light of our awareness and acceptance- without doing what they say. (Example: A bite of X would taste so good. It's just a bite. Yes, it's true that would taste good, but it often hasn't proved true that I was satisfied with just one bite. I often get urges later to eat more. I'll be okay to just let the urge be there, and still wait until my fabulous next meal that I will totally enjoy.) Hope I don't sound preachy. There are lots of ways and images that help. We have a thread called What did I think/do TODAY to avoid a binge? I invite members here to post what's helped.

And, VG, I bet there is SOMETHING you did positive in that experience. Give yourself credit for that. Habit theory tells us to reward even the smallest right move.

Bren, warmest warmest hugs. I wish I could be there to hold your hand when the eating fairies come. (I don't like seeing them as monsters. I really don't think they are out to hurt us. They are just following orders, and mean to bring us pleasure. They're just not good at seeing into the future.) I would just say, "It's okay. We've got this. Thanks for offering, though! Now, enjoy your flight somewhere else!" And you would relax and fall asleep, safe and sound.

Tawney, I think I hear ya. I've written a blog on this. Thank you so much for continuing to check in. I believe newbies need to get a sense of where this can go, since honestly, it's not much like the media will tell ya. It can seem SO easy for awhile, and you think, oh, this is it It's over. Then it isn't. Uh oh. Then it has the chance to get into even deeper territory. I have a belief that it won't take us there unless we can take it. And Happy Birthday! Wisdom and resolve: the best gifts a gal can get.

Nice work, Turtle! On the walk and the haircut. Gotta say I've never heard of that progression before.

Blog will tell ya more. Having a very light supper and then off to dance class.

Day 2. A bit of a hiccup on Monday after a marathon day of painful tests and biopsies at Mayo Clinic. Trying to let that binge go, and focus on listening to my true hunger today.
In the back of my mind I am a bit worried though for today, since yesterday was surgery under general anesthesia. Was so sick to my stomach after waking up for hours, and ended up barely eating anything yesterday. Don't want to be ravenous today due to that and lack of sleep.

Ok Bren, listen to your bod' not your emotional relationship with chips and jellybeans, GAH!

Wishing you all a fantastic day!!!

Day 3
Yes, Oolala, I think you are right about me being mostly BF for about 2 years. I know I had a long BF streak of 209 days and then slipped and struggled for awhile. It is getting easier for the majority of days. It is not about the food or some special combination of behaviours that someone wrote in a book. Rather it is about me learning how to live peacefully with myself and my environment. I want to learn from what others teach but I want to take what is right for me from their thoughts and incorporate what I need into my life.
This team has helped me so much. Thank you for your support and sharing your struggles and wins.
Today is my birthday. I plan to enjoy the day. In the past I built up to a "free from food rules" day. It usually turned into a binge which I was not happy about after. I do not feel like that today. I don't have any strict "food rules".

Nice to see you again, Tawney. I remember those tough days you had. That was quite awhile ago, but it's testimony to the fact that for most of us, the habit of NOT bingeing takes quite awhile to become firmly established. As you say, it's so important not to get discouraged, as if our failures mean we are doomed. If my calculations are right, you've been mostly binge free for two years maybe?

Need to go to the bank for cash to buy cheap money orders as I've been out of checks and have been procrastinating on buying some online after reading a story of someone who got charged more to his credit card and it was a hassle getting the money back. Just that little thing can stop me. although there are other areas in life where I have little of the fears that other people have. Or I guess I could just pay more and order them directly at the bank, but I'm too cheap! Since I'll be out over lunchtime, I took 5 minutes and packed a little lunch. It will save me money, and I get the salad items and fruit I prefer.

Got in my walk interspersed with rope jumping and calisthenics. Still have to get another 70 minutes of being on my feet. The bank trip plus a little thrift store shopping might take care of that. Will also spend at least 15 minutes decluttering yard and 15 minutes doing dishes and cleaning up.

Day 4 I'm very tempted to under eat but I know this always leads to a binge. if I eat enough food I find the urge to binge is diminished.

Day 2
When I came home from holiday I did not look at my day count. I had reached 21 days. Maybe if I had registered that in my brain I would not have made the choice to binge the next day. But binge I did. I am pleased that yesterday was a wonderful BF day. I was not feeling well physically but by afternoon that had passed.
Today I am going to swim and at 330 I have a massage booked. It has been a long time since I did that..
To those of you that are struggling - I used to feel like the "Queen of Day 1". I had so many restarts that I felt like I was never going to move beyond the "stall" position. Every time I started over I did learn something about the process. I am on another 21 day journey that will teach me something new. Please do not be hard on yourselves. Step on your choice to binge and move up to the next rung on the ladder.
Have a great day everyone

"There will be other parties, other picnics, other chances to eat good food." Lyla, this thought has helped me many times. I also agree that it can be a concern for another day to be able to take advantage of leftovers. No need to shut the door and no need to be ready now. I"m not sure it's smallish victory, though, to have bypassed extra food at a party because you were full. That's pretty central, since one of our biggest problems is the sheer availability of palatalbe food. What a great deposit to your success account! Awesome work!

Hang on to anyone who is down on herself. Never believe the negative thoughts you have if you've overeaten. They are part of the brain pattern, wired together with the food. You can unhook them and make new patterns just from letting the negative thoughts dissolve from the light of your own compassion for yourself.

Congrats to everyone racking up days. Jolie, kudos on another 21 days, and on sharing it with us.

Rainbow, so glad you've gotten some inspiration from Brain Over Binge. I didn't read her book before I started, but did read her mentor's, and it helped me plenty.

Kickingit, if I may say so, it sounds a little like you were down on yourself because you said you were "already" having to start over. It's actually typical for people to take several tries to get to 21. I can tell you for sure that many people who did get to 21 failed at day 1 many times. I gently suggest you put your best effort into the time of day that is the most challenging.

Well, I had a great 36 hours on my trip. Fell apart last night and today, but I'm ok now. Had a reasonable dinner and no snacking tonight. I feel I'm ready for a great day tomorrow. I also got that cruddy work project done and submitted. Now it's mostly out of my hands, though I do have to come through when I get told how to do the final step before the state ok's the application- if I haven't missed something. I guess I'll just have to face it when it comes.

Will start a new day 1 tomorrow.

Day 7
Its been a good week so far. The car situation is being taken car of. Today I spent the morning in the ER with my son. We went out to eat after being discharged at 11:30.
I didn't pick the most filling option and now I'm hungry and really don't have the extra calories. I'm pouring some v8 and I'm going to spice it up. I'm getting involved with some house affairs to distract myself

Day 1
I did well on holiday but yesterday was a washout so back to Day 1. I don't feel that well this morning which is probably partly due to binging yesterday.
I am back in the game again and will be trying to stop living in my head and live more in the moment.
Have a great day everyone!

Day 7

Thanks Pam, yeah I am also working on remembering that I don't have to eat all the food right now, that there will be another meal, and plenty more chances in my life eat stuff!

Day4 and I am doing it!!! WHOO HOO!

LYLAGARRITY- YOUR ROCK! not taking "free food"! and stopping at the party! I really understand/know what you mean about "eating all of it" if you had taken the food home...so that was such a success for you to NOT take it home!

Kathryn-WE ALL CAN DO IT!

One thing that helps me mentally is that I think of eating as: "my next planned food event"....it means I AM going to eat AGAIN! and it is an EVENT- a PLANNED EVENT. Really helps me allot!

Move More!

"no cookies were harmed..." I like that changing_turtle. I am going to attempt this 21-day no binge streak. I wore my bathing suit for the first time this summer and YIKES! I was not pleased (although BF was happy). I've gotten rid of all the tempting food in the house so hopefully tomorrow I can honestly say "day 1 completed"

I can believe I haven't been on since the 2nd. I've spent the past 1/2 hour catching up on posts.
I pray everyone continues to feel relief of life challenges and have binge free days.

I'm not sure what day I am on. I can't believe I'm having a harder time in the summer with signing on, tracking and posting. I know I've had more binge free days than binging days. We did make homemade ice cream on the 6th and that was not good for me.
Looking back on the week I'm making the 9th Day 1 - so today is

Day 6.
