Spending the day with my sweetie...we have a few errands and working on stuff for the motorhome. I'm not sure how the job interview went yesterday...I think it was too short so am not expecting a call. Still looking...trying to not let the stress get me going into a binge...I started yesterday to eat chips when I got back from the interview but stopped myself and said I could wait till I was hungry for my next meal...big win!

Day 21...

Day 11. Still eating more than I know I should, but actively trying to find my 'normal', so I'm also learning from this. Am I my own science project? Feels like it!

Be GREAT guys,

@OOLALA53 I remember reading a book by Geneen Roth years ago. Actually, it was my mothers. She was a binge eater as well. Interesting how some conditions are passed down. Nature or nurture? I don't know.

I'd appreciate it if you let us know how the course is coming along and whether it is worth looking into.

Day 8 streak three, more money in my no binge/no trigger foods bought bank love seeing the money stack up 25 cents for no binge day, 50 cents every time I go to the store and don't buy trigger foods. After the 21 days I get to spend the money on "new" clothes at the Goodwill. My last hall was $15 dollars but did not find any thing to spend it on my last trip to the Goodwill.

Nice to meet you, Slender.

DLP, some day you won't call it a cheat meal. It will just be a meal. Sometimes we have richer foods than other times. That is human.

Make a decision and then let it go, huh Tawney? Nice work if you can get it. emoticon It is amazing how much the same damn thoughts repeat themselves in my mind. My spiritual advisors claim you don't have to make those thoughts disappear, that you can get to the point at which you see them and feel very distant from them. Seven years of various disciplines and this is just starting to make sense.

They say we are NOTHING that we think about ourselves, good or bad. Our essense is independent of any thoughts about our thoughts, actions, or perceptions, and that our conscious thoughts deal with only a teeny fraction of reality. It can be very freeing.

I know I have said before and was recently thinking how we really don't have to be dictated to by our past eating behavior. This hour, this meal, is completely independent, and it will go how we make it go. It can be effortless or effortful, but it's still possible to do it sanely, no matter what, as long as we are not starving ourselves. And guess what. Today's email subject from Geneen Roth (now that I'm enrolled in her course, I expect the messages to keep on comin') is: On Monday Morning: You Are Not Your Past.

I am trying mightily to apply this to my even more automatic response of feeling and acting irritatedly in my work situation. That feels 10x more intense than the urge to binge, and the sense that I need to act to control the situation is even more pronounced. Could that all be an illusion, too?

Thanks for letting me ruminate.

Slender~ Welcome!

Bren~ Glad you escaped the 'binge fog' as I like to call it.

Just finished up a massage and had a granola bar with peanut butter and dried cranberries with a glass of chocolate almond milk for lunch. Now off to an interview at Natural Grocers.

Day 20...

Wishing all a sane and peaceful day with food!

Day 14
We had a wonderful weekend with our family in the city. I have today off to get organized and recover. I have a pedicure booked @ 2 this afternoon so am looking forward to that. I have started going through the house again this year to dejunk and clean. Last year was tough because I had a major amount of junk that has to be gone through. this year should be easier. I have gained a few pound lately but have not binged. I want to drop them and work on my yoga before the retreat in April. I am really looking forward to it.
We saw my husband's counselor on Friday and she had some really good advice about reducing anxiety. Make a decision, follow through, and then relax about it. It is simple but not easy. I hope it will help us out. So he is going to have a conversation with his boss and stop worrying about it.
Welcome to the new comers - you have come to the right place.
Have a great week everyone.

Had a bad binging week emoticon

Yesterday no binge emoticon

My strategy was to constantly sip fluids all day (HOT sf tea, skinny decaf mochas, water, protein drinks for breakfast & afternoon snack)

Have a nice dinner (3 oz steak, 1 c chicken & rice gumbo)

then after dinner, sip HOT sf apple cider.

Welcome, Azynda!

DLP, I think the fact that you had some different foods and didn't go all WTH with them is progress.

What many therapists will recommend is that we practice eating former binge foods under rather controlled circumstances to start. Most people will benefit from having a bit of time off from them, from 4 or 5 days to a few weeks. Know that after a period of abstinence, eating the food can jump start some big desires! This is not a sign that all is lost. Research shows that exposure to the food in small/moderate portions and resisting the following urges will weaken the whole cycle over time. The person should have the food in an atmosphere that supports moderation. If a person ate a lot of the target food when alone, she should have it only with other people. She might eat it only at a restaurant and not have any in the house to start. And she should have some alternate activities, preferably ones that are pleasurable, to do right after the eating, so there is a definite end to the experience and a diversion. These are ways to break up the habitual pattern and make new neural patterns.

A nibbly morning. Not the best feeling but I enjoyed what I ate. Got an activity planned that will divert me for several hours. Wish I was feeling a little better about some other areas of my life, but those probably can't be solved today, so I might as well try to enjoy my time.

Bren~ Thinking of you...congrats on a week!!!!!

It's going to be a busy day today. Dropping my car off at the car lot to get a couple little things fixed and to the RV show downtown. Then back home to (hopefully) finish painting our tiny home! I'll be fine with food today.

Oh, and I have an interview on Monday at a Natural Foods grocery store...putting out flyers for reduced price massages, so trusting all will work how it is supposed to!

Day 18...

Wishing all a sane and peaceful day with food.

Day # 2 --- here I go!!!

Yesterday went well. I ate some of my favorite yummy foods (dark chocolate) and I didn't turn it into a binge. I did have moments where I wanted to start eating mindlessly but I got busy doing something else to distract myself.

I feel good about today and tomorrow since weekends aren't usually a huge issue for me.....its when I'm home alone that I can do some pretty serious damage.

Day 5 streak 3, putting more money in my no binge/no trigger foods bought piggy bank. I put 25 cents in each day I am binge free and 50 cents in each time I go to the store and don't buy trigger foods. After 21 days I spend the money on any thing I want. I had $15 last streak and have yet to spend it.

Have to take the new car in for emissions today...will be putting in job applications...decided not to do massage for the chiropractor because they just don't pay well enough for the stress on my body...so, put out some free advertising for a reduced massage at my own office...will stay on top of food today...

Day 17...

Wishing all a sane and peaceful day with food.

Today is Day 1 for me. I really hope to start working towards managing my binge eating. I realize that this has turned into something I cannot accomplish all by myself so I plan to be around this message board a lot.

Thanks so much for all of the support I am sure I will receive here.

Day 1 - no binging.

Tawney, I haven't had more than 6 hours- and often less- average sleep a night for more than 20 years. During the hardest ones, I would wake up nearly every night at 1 or 2 and not go back until about an hour before I had to get up. It did not help my anxiety! Now, I'm amazed that I can sleep only 4 hours and actually still feel ok. I'm lucky that my work schedule allows me to rest or nap in the afternoon if I come home. I sometimes put the seat back in my car and nap in a parking lot if I run errands in afternoon. I figure if a fair amount of the world takes a siesta in the afternoon, it's reasonable that I take that time, especially for safety. (I went to driving school for a ticket once and was shocked to hear how many people were there because they got tickets for falling asleep at the wheel- some of the more than once!)

Feeling at peace with food so far today. Got my 14 minutes of vigor in this a.m. Forgot my new lousy pedometer. Gawd, I hate the hassle of returning things ordered online, but that thing is so inaccurate!

Tawney~ I hate sleep issues...hope you find your groove again!!

Oolala~ No, this was the office I was looking to get out of, so all is well. I have an interview today to do massage at a chiropractor's office...will have to see what the compensation will be if it will work for me. Looking forward to hearing some nuggets from your workshop!!

Life is a rollercoaster and I'm trusting that whatever should happen, happens. Learning to ride the waves as they come without using food to deal with things...

Day 16...

Wishing all a sane and peaceful day with food.

Day 10

I am off today. I did not sleep well last night. It is irritating when you fall asleep easily and then wake up and do not go back to sleep easily. There may be some reasons like getting over the cold medication I was taking, not exercising or doing yoga. stress. I will get back to today to working on these things and hopefully get into rhythm again.

Oh, hippie, you mean you got let go from the new office you liked? so sorry

Stayed home from work today. Did have a bit of a sore throat but also wanted to get other things done. Didn't meet the mark because I kept getting distracted. Also nibbled a lot, so I have that blah feeling, but I'm intent not to interpret it as something worse.

Oolala - I would love to attend a workshop with Geneen Roth. I hope you really enjoy it. Her first book helped me a lot.
I had a good day today. I am now off until Tuesday so am looking forward to the weekend. We are going to our grandson's hockey tournament and will see all three of our grand-kids.
Hippie - I hope things work out for you. You are doing so well having to deal with everything.

Oolala~ great words, once again...love so much of what you say!

Jol~ thanks for the words...yes, one step at a time...

Worked half a day and at lunch the doc pulled me in and sent me home...now job searching once again.

Called a client who wanted a massage before the weekend, so did that this afternoon. Afterwards, kept thinking of places to stop on my way home for food...came home and had a tuna sandwich instead...feeling like that was better for my anxiety than binging on pizza or cookies...yay!!

Hang in there everyone...we are stronger than our urges let us believe!!

Well, kids, I did it. I signed up for an expensive workshop with Geneen Roth. It's a Friday evening and all day Saturday in March. I'm not sure it's going to do anything, but I've been so curious about her, I gave in. I resisted for years because she is kind of in the intuitive eating vein of things, and I have my doubts about that, as I do any system which is not used by whole populations, and no slim populations I know if eat intuitively. Slim individuals, yes. Slim populations, no. And naturally slim people do not have a monopoly on belief in themselves, not even one little bit. However, there are other elements of her work that are attractive, namely how to work with the negative voices some of us trash ourselves, ahem, with so often, whether about food or not. And a quote of hers has been haunting me lately: When you believe in yourself more than you believe in food, you will stop using food as if it were your only chance at not falling apart. I feel as if I'm almost there with this idea. I used to think she meant if I didn't believe that I could change the world, star in a Broadway play, become rich, or whatever, it meant I didn't believe in myself, but I've come to think that's not the case. It's more like if I don't really believe that I and my life, just as it is right this minute (it could change any second) is not good enough, not sweet enough for right now at least, I am believing a lie, and any food I eat to try to sweeten the pot, so to speak, or stave off the anxiety or fear or resentment of my lot denies the validity of my value just as I am right now. And I have to be able to extend that to anyone else in my realm, but only for this minute. Down deep, I really believe this is true, that there is an essence we all have that makes everything okay as it is right now. I am actively involved in contacting that just about every day, but it is elusive, and my counteracting forces are pretty strong, though I know they are mostly in my head.

Adversity is not a precluder from this club; in fact, many get into the freedom club by passing through adversity. I'm still thinking that the "adversity" of my job is meant to be part of my gateway. Otherwise, I would leave and take my chances. But right now I believe that something else would happen down the road that would test me, so I might as well stay. Honestly, it's still easier than what many have been through, and I'm humbled seeing their thriving with so much more sorrow and difficulty than I've been through.

And not to say this is the only avenue to be free of food. It doesn't HAVE to be so dramatic, and I'm going partly to see if there is a way I can lighten it for myself and others.

Day 11.

We got a snow day from work so I'm playing some farcry 4.

Snow days always remind me of the good times I had as a child with my late mother. She would stay home from work as well and bake cookies, take me and the other kids sledding...etc.

It makes me sad sometimes that my first inclination when I feel happy or sad is to binge.

But it is what it is. One step at a time.

Finished Day #1, working on Day #2!

--------------
Turtle -- Fantastic!!! You are a prime example of not letting some overeating make you binge!!! That's what I'm about too! emoticon emoticon emoticon

Oolala - you held it off a long time, and you and I both know that sometimes it will just happen. Hang in there! You are successful, even at 99%!!! emoticon

Hippie -- Hope things look up! You've been through a lot lately. I don't believe in much, but I think the adage "Just do the next thing in front of you" is a great one. ..and of course, "one step at a time" emoticon

Bren -- I just saw that movie "Wild" yesterday, and it really touched me. We all have to move on from unpleasant things, mistakes, bad relationships. There is always something to look forward to and just accepting the past for what it was is a lot of the subject of the movie.

Joyce2u -- Congrats on day 1. That means that you didn't let the binge monster stay forever.

Day 5 for me.
JOYCE- good luck today. We are all here to help keep things sane : )

OOLALA- I'm thrilled that your body was happy to get back to normal portions. Isn't that just neat???

JOL- have a fantastic day. Every so often I catch your workout feed and continue to be so impressed.

Turtle- you're on a roll! Err, a 3 streak roll that is. Great job!

Tawney- hope the cravings stay minimal. I'm struggling with some myself.
I was tired of the nagging craving for a particular item that my husband keeps buying, so I threw it away yesterday morning. Even though it was full. Even though there were multiple servings of it left. My husband continues to get upset with me on those 3-4 occasions per month that he goes to get some of it, but I've learned from this team to stop apologizing for my tossing it. I've asked him numerous times to stop buying it, or to keep it at work, but he just continues to say no. Tells me to just 'stop craving it' (uh huh, ha ha). A $6 container of junkfood in the trash is not that big a waste when it comes to my sanity.
Thank goodness it's not something insanely pricy like caviar or something, eh? : )))

Have a great day guys

Bren

Day 15...dealing with a lot of stress...called into work on Monday because I was freaked at the snow after my accident...going back in today but worried about repercussions of calling in...could have lied and said I was sick but told the truth and felt lectured on the phone. Got my new car yesterday...a Nissan Versa, 2007. So, I'm a week and a half after my accident and feeling crappy today...probably the anxiety I'm feeling.

Plus we got screwed on our motor home at a shop so now at another....have so much to do to get ready to move in in a month...we may stay in the house an extra month. We shall see how all goes.

Wishing all a sane and peaceful day with food.

Bren, the feeling is mutual.

Good news. No cravings repercussion from the binge. I even had instant mashed potatoes AND a little pasta, along with pork and veggies, at lunch. AND I added a tablespoon of olive oil to the mix. Don't mean to go on and on, but it was satisfying! I could really taste the richness of that bit of oil. I have not wanted to eat this afternoon. Got about an hour until my video hangout and feel fine anticipating having to eat dinner a bit later.

Day 8

I did some grazing again yesterday. I find that if I am not so strict with my food behaviours that I am less likely to fall into a full blown binge. I hope today is better - time will tell.

I think today is day 4. I definitely overate over the entire weekend, but truly only felt that frazzled Cookie Monster voice (MUUUST eaaaaat!!!!) on Friday.
Bad news about my health, a tiff with my husband, my poor dog Olive really struggling to recover from emergency spine surgery. And I face planted into refined carbs in the form of cereal and gluten free toaster waffles. Should remind myself that it's OK to STILL be trying to bounce back after the huge emotional let down of my long gone mother resurfacing after too many years, and canceling her trip to fly out to see me on the day of. I really want to get past that last one. Ugh!

OOLALA- I adore you. Absolutely and completely. Your brutal honesty is enlightening and motivating (YES really). You show us that bumps happen, but we can continue to make progress and bounce back. I know those feelings you shared (all too well!). I'm hugging you right now....

HIPPIE- good luck on the car hunt!

Gotta run but I wish you all a great day with food!

Well, I just binged. I hope no one will take this the wrong way, but it was heavenly. I won't try to say I needed to get it out of my system or try to explain it away in any way. It's done. I am going to have a little dinner and be done with eating for today.

I'm feeling like I need to be doing some ancillary activities for my meditation course so I am skipping drum class for the second week in a row. A part of me wants to chastise myself for not doing more this weekend so that I could still go to class, but did chastising ever work with food and eating? Has it worked very often? In comparison with how much I've used it on myself? Chastising has a terrible track record of success. I'm not going to use it today. Just finish dinner and get on with the evening. I did some walking to get to the binge food. I'm going to put some time in on my rebounder, too. Not as punishment but to show myself that I don't have to let everything go because of one slip. I'm in a challenge at work, and the only thing I want to be in it for is to establish a habit of consistent movement.

DLP, that is another real victory. When we start seeing that we can unhook the connections between emotions and eating, meaning that we can experience all the emotions that we used to think caused us to eat without picking up the food, it can be a huge game changer. Not depending on NOT experiencing triggers or with having the perfect way to counteract the triggers is powerful.

Hugs to everyone! emoticon You guys are great! Keep working on it, hour by hour, and remember it's always better to be a little lenient with yourself. I find you get more done, in fact, doing less, but more often! (did that make sense? emoticon ) By less, I mean less than 100% on any type of goal.

Day 6
It has warmed up today and is supposed to be even warmer tomorrow. I am feeling better but still short of energy.
I am starting to clean and organize. I try to do a minimum of 15 minutes a day. It is surprising how much you can do in a few minutes.
I feel better if I can complete a task - even if it only for 15 minutes.
Oolala - I get what you are saying about the meditation class - its complicated but it is how you feel and that is OK

Had to do some real talkin' to myself not to buy cookie dough to binge on yesterday. I somehow won't rule out using it again sometime in my life, but yesterday wasn't that day. I'm so glad I didn't because, and I'm waiting to hear back from the prospective hostess who had foot surgery recently, if all goes well, I have an Oscar party to go to! Yee haw. One of my rules for myself, made more than two years into my journey, was to eat sweets only in company. If the party is on, you KNOW who is bringing dessert! I'll be able to enjoy a reasonable amount with others and leave the rest behind. Just how celebratory foods were meant to be used.

BTW, I did consider buying some Jello raspberry cheesecake pudding, which I've enjoyed in the past. But it was as if there was an electric field around the refrigerator door it was stored behind. Not a mean one, but just a sense of, "Nah, even if that's much more reasonable than cookie dough, it's not really going to solve the problem at hand, and will likely make you wish you had waited for a better opportunity." This sounds like it took a long time, but it was pretty fast. The problem at hand is that I"m feeling frustrated over the meditation course I"m taking. That old tendency to compare ourselves is wreaking havoc with me. I have to keep working to side step that voice. It keeps coming back! I started the course knowing A LOT more than other participants about the basics of what we're learning, but other people are zooming past me in learning the new stuff! You don't have to tell me it's not a race nor a competition. One part of me sees the absurdity, but another is cursing and swearing. And get this: the course is ABOUT learning to side step that voice! Aargh! In my best moments, I see the humor in it all. Perhaps I can work it into my standup act, but right now, I just sound whiny and bitter. Not funny.

Oolala~ Congrats on 21 days!

Tawney~ Hope you feel better...-32 degrees.....brrrr!

The motorhome is in the shop getting some TLC so yesterday and today we're finishing up building the couch and covering cushions we got for it. We might run out for a few errands but cold and snowy today. Looked for a new car yesterday but came up empty handed by the time white out conditions caught us.

Day 12 for me...

Wishing all a sane and peaceful day with food!

Tawney, negative 32? Yeah, I know it's been a cold winter, but geesh! San Diego hardly ever gets to positive 32!

Will put a post up on the book thread, if anyone is interested. Binge Eating Disorder: Clinical Foundations and Treatment.

Day 5
Oolala, Good work! Aren't you glad to feel good today instead of hung over from the binge you could have had? It is so freeing to have permission to eat anything and not be following a strict regime.

I am doing OK. I was mostly in the house yesterday trying to cure my cold. I did go out to feed the cows. The pails were already filled so it wasn't hard to fill the troughs. I filled up the cats' food and made sure their light was on. they have an insulated house heated with a bulb. A stray female comes when it is cold. She is very friendly but comes and goes. Today it is -32 with the wind chill. Once it gets light I will need to go out an make sure the water bowls did not freeze, etc. Blue loves to be out with the cows. He barks a little too much but is usually OK with them. We have been spoiling him and keeping him in the house this winter. Have a great day everyone!

Made it to 21 days yesterday. Boy, was I plagued by thoughts of bingeing today! I swear, the only thing that saved me was the guideline that I have that I can have anything in any amount on weekends. I was thinking, well, if I want to binge and give myself permission to do it, I should at least wait until tomorrow. I did go to Costco and have a slice of pizza for lunch. Mmm, took my time and really enjoyed it. I can actually have it any time I want, but honestly, it's not what I want every day or even that often anymore. The urge didn't really go away completely, but I ended up napping in my car outside the library I stopped at on the way home. Then went for a brisk walk in my 'hood with my new pedometer. (Disappointing. It got great reviews but it never counted my steps the same as I did. I'll just use it for a ball park figure.) Got a phone call that helped bridge the time. Had a regular dinner. I'm fine now. So glad I rode the urge wave!

Day 4
The cold won so I have been laying low today. It has given me some time to think and set some goals to work toward.
I am very lucky to have good health and I do not want to complain about a couple of sick days.

Lyla~ Enjoy your vacation!

Bren~ Hang in there...you're a gem!

Oolala~ We are moving into the motorhome on April 1 when our lease is up...we'll stick around town through mid July or first part of August before taking off for the South and the sun. On to CA in the spring.

I'll be at the office today. My interview went well yesterday and this office is much more calm and relaxed which fits me better. I go in tomorrow to meet the Dr. Food will be fine today. Will go car shopping tomorrow, too...yes, my Subaru was totaled. And....will get an exam and an adjustment today...so thankful as I have been hurting since Monday.

Day 10...

Bren, I am learning so much that I have to be able to overdo it and be totally okay with it, even with the cruddy physical stuffed feeling afterwards! Welcome it all. Welcome even your disappointment in yourself. Let it rise and fall, just like the urge.

At the same time, remember the wall post from another day: it's less important why you ate than to concentrate on why you want to behave differently next time. And it can't be because you are still mad at yourself! It CAN be because you just don't want to be looking back at the experience wishing you hadn't done it.

But I think I've also said, it's actually possible that it IS worth it to you to just eat. You are kinda in a special situation. If there were a pain reliever the doctors could give you that didn't have horrible side effects, I'd tell you to take it. The side effects of overeating aren't all pleasant, but honestly, they aren't abhorrent, either, if you don't have related health issues. We tend to vilify and moralize overeating so much, when it's rather a reasonable behavior, given certain circumstances. For previous generations that couldn't depend on steady food, it's a DREAM come true!

Hang in there. I'm on your side.

I kinda ate a lot of plain yogurt, out of the container last night, but I"m not calling it a binge.

Working on day 21.

Hi guys, day 2 to be brutally honest. I did eat far too much for the first two days I was home from hospital.
OOLALA- in your own words, I see that most of my (recent) suffering was my own doing as well. I'm disappointed in myself, but keep reminding myself of how good it feels to NOT binge.

I guess I had a combined feeling of being happy to be home, and being in SO much pain when I was discharged from hospital. I had this looming feeling of despair (being sent home in a lot of pain, with no way to regulate my pain from home), feeling sad that my treatment seemed to do me more harm than good, etc. So looking back, I can see what fueled that binge-y fire.
But day 2 of eating normally feels so good, and I crave that feeling, so I will strive for that again today!

Hugs to you all...
Bren

Day 3

I have not binged. I have not worried too much about what I am eating so I can get firmly back on track.
I work today and then have tomorrow off. If I can shake this cold I hope to go skiing.
Keep up the good work everyone.

Day 18

Sorry Hippie, oy, I've never been in a car accident (well at least not when I was driving, and not since I was a fearless teenager) but it sounds mad scary.

I am officially on vacation! Next stop Cancun baby! I am so excited and this is going to be about the longest vacation I've ever taken (a whopping 9 days) and I haven't taken so much as a personal day since September.

Also probably going to be a vacation from the gym which is causing me a little anxiety because I think exercise has been a big key to continued binge-freedom, not that I can't exercise while on vacation, what with walking around and swimming and so forth, but it's not quite the same to me. But I have a suspicion (a good suspicion, whatever that is - I guess a hunch) that once I get there I won't give a flying hoot about how much I am or am not exercising.

But my point - and I do have one - is that I'm not sure how often I'll be able to check in, depending on availability of wi-fi etc., so if you don't hear from me it just means I'm having fun.

Well, didn't go into work on Monday because in all the ice and snow, I was in an accident. I'm ok but my car may be totaled. I should hear back from my insurance company today. I will be at the office all day today AND I got the interview for another job for tomorrow morning. Woke a little anxious this morning because I was worried about them saying something about not coming in at all on Monday...they asked if I would come in that afternoon and I said I was still shook up and hurting some. Will not stress and let things happen as they will. I hope she will give me an adjustment today, too.

I see some folks are getting close to 21...cheers to you and you can do it!!
