Day 2. I can't begin to express how difficult these past 8 days have been emotionally. No doubt a major cause of my increased pain flares and new ulcers too. I was a young girl all over again, who's mother left her. I didn't realize that I still had some Sasquatch sized feelings and emotional about that. It surprised me that I have been so very sad this past week, since obviously the pain was still there. Wow. So I'm trying to take it hour by hour right now. And this the next I can do, but that's ok!

My husband keeps nudging me to take more pain meds, use the sleeping pills, and unfortunately bringing home sugary foods that he intentionally bought for me (oh gee, another type of drug, huh).
The zany part is, I was able to stand my ground on the pain meds and PX's (no I won't rely on them, since I do not support over medicating to numb yourself from reality. And I definitely don't want to encourage drug dependency in any way), but I totally succumbed to the comfort food this weekend. Gah!
Trying to be kind to myself, since who on earth could have anticipated this emotional roller coaster?
OOLALA- taking your advice to heart and will just keep he plan simple today, and then do it again tomorrow!

Wishing you all a sane day with your meals and snacks.
Hugs,
Bren

Day 6
We were out to supper last night and it was nice. The evening got a little long when some went down memory lane. The stories meant little to the rest of us. Also one remark about a relative got me feeling down. I am determined to put the past and what may or may not have happened differently out of my mind. I was doing pretty well this morning and then something exciting popped into my email. There is a Yoga retreat planned within driving distance. It is a weekend at a beautiful resort. I emailed back right away. I seem to feel better when I am working toward a special goal. this is happening in April so plan to continue with my Yoga and work to be in good flexible shape by then (10 hours over the weekend). I feel better when I am eating in a healthy way as well. My friend called yesterday and talked about our summer camping trip - that is to look forward to as well.
It has been a week - an unexpected death of someone I have known a long time, sad news from my daughter, etc. Such is life - I have been trying to feel rather than stuff and eat - so far working.

I hope all is well with you.
I try to remember that much of my struggle is in my own head - not in reality.

Jolie, sorry I missed your offer. So far, I've been able to tune in. We had an online meeting today. Several actually, because the poor moderator, who is not a computer person, never could get it to work to video record the session, as it is part of a research project that will be studied privately. She tried several times. We're trying again tomorrow night as practice. We're supposed to be ready to record on Tuesdays and Thursdays. I felt like a bumpkin secretly being amazed that here we were, a small group of women spread out over a thousand miles, all seeing each other in real time. I know it's par for the course in the business world. I'm thinking of walking back through the process so I can possibly tell my sister about it. Not that I love the idea of people being able to see my messy house! I guess I'll have to up my housekeeping skills- or just get even more at peace with who I am.

Ate rather heavy yesterday and nibbled a little more than was comfortable today but it's all good

This really can get simple. Plan for a few meals, have snacks if you really want them. Repeat forever. That's what it boils down to. Millions of people in other parts of the world do it without going overboard. We can, too.

Bren, I'm fanning your mightily! Love, love, love to you.

Day four and Friday, I thought it would never get here!

We are expecting record high temps this weekend. What's that about? Boo!

Will do my best to get through the weekend and not treat it like a 'free food' weekend.

Leanna, that is great news! No matter what got you there, you got there. Other people swear by other stuff that sounds impossible to live with to me, even if it did erase the binge urge. In the end, it has to fit us.

Day 21 ~ !!! YES!!! I made it!!! emoticon

I've been on LBF for a long time and never made it. I KNOW the reason I was able to make it THIS time is because of the NoS "Diet". The really beautiful part is ... it's easy!

On to tomorrow, starting Round 2.

DLP, I hope you can find some strength in believing that you don't have to wait for the binge urge to go away before you are able to manage binges. You just have to be able to tolerate them, and they are all tolerable. It is ALWAYS an illusion that they are irresistible. They are just feelings in our body and thoughts in our mind. We have just gotten into the habit of obeying them, but they are not able to take any action. Yes, it could feel very hard for a few hours, but no worse than a headache or cold you have to just put up with. If possible, vary your routine so that you are more occupied than usual. If not, have your general plan in place for how you are going to feed yourself reasonably that day. Have meals to look forward to and rev up the desire not to ruin your appetite for those upcoming meals. Realize you don't have to respond to every little twinge to eat. I know some programs have people monitoring their hunger all the time, but I failed miserably doing that and did much better planning for reasonable meals and sticking to the meal times, not giving myself the option to respond to any cue to eat other than the meal time window. Most desires for food had nothing to do with real hunger. It is ALWAYS okay to ignore fake urges to eat, and it is also okay to let yourself be legitimately hungry for awhile before eating. Use your less stressful days to practice. practice, practice, savoring your meals, chewing and really enjoying each mouthful slowly, and taking your time. It can be hard to use those skills when the situation is more pressured but it is worth the effort! I learned over time how to have meals that allowed me to get hungry for the next one. I mean really hungry, not just the urge to eat. I always know I just ate awhile ago and have a satisfying meal coming up, so even if I get that urge, I know it's unnecessary to feed it. The more "dangerous" the situation, the more likely I make sure I am not skimping at my meals. This is all a learning process! I know people say that, but what it means is it won't always be clear how to make it easy! Sometimes you will feel you are slogging along blind, but trust that it's worth it to wait for the next appropriate meal to eat!

You CAN do it, even if it's hard, even if it means feeling very anxious and irritated for several hours. Humans have faced much worse!

Speaking of being anxious and irritated, I am enrolled in an online course that will start on Saturday using google hangouts for a meeting of about six people. I don't have a smart phone, I've never used an iPad, and I'm very anxious. I go to pages that give me instructions, but they refer to doing things I don't know how to do. I've got gmail, I've downloaded hangout, but I can't see how to get TO it. And I"m getting some message about a passphrase. Aargh! I need a tutor! This course is very important to me and was expensive! I see previous participants on video archives and they don't look especially savvy, but I'm stumped right now. I may have to pay someone to come teach me. I once paid someone a hundred bucks to set up my wireless printer because I just couldn't face it. Nearly every woman I know says, oh, my kids showed me how to to do that or my husband set it up for me. No help to me!

Day whatever.

DAY 7!! Last night I had eating urges and I prayed and I didn't indulge in any food! Yeah!

Walked 1 mile today-that's 5 out of 7 days....the movement is putting me in a GREAT mood! Thankful too that I can walk again!

OOLALA: your line about: "having a sane relationship with food" really inspires me!

Congrats! to all who have DAY 20 and DAY 21!!!

Lyla~ hope your cough is getting better.

Tawney~ hope you enjoyed skiing!

Oolala~ I have a blog where I posted pictures...unfoldingroads.blogspot.com I LOVE the tiny homes...we may eventually build one in N CA if we decide to settle in there. Who knows...going to let the roads unfold before us!!

Yesterday started out ok and I was busy in the kitchen for a while...then my TOM showed up and felt crampy and yucky all day...ended up eating more than I should have. It didn't really feel like a binge but it didn't feel peaceful. So, with my experience here I want to start over again.

So...Day 1

Day 2

Feeling better although I could have binged again last night. I took the pressure off myself by telling myself that I could sit down, watch TV and read. Of course I fell asleep in the chair but when I got up I was able to not think about eating.
I am heading outside for a ski.

Mrsclark, walking away can become the norm even thought it probably felt weird!

Ate some fabulous cupcakes after lunch. In the car. I felt like I had to decriminalize the site. Light dinner. Things are fine.

Hippiechic, when we gonna see some pics? Are you keeping a record of the changes? Sounds so fun. I get a newsletter about tiny houses. I think in the end I won't end up in one, but they sure are sweet.

Hang in there, everyone. That means even if you binged. Have faith that you will eventually make different choices more consistently.
