JD.. not good. The pasta salad isn't BAD if you ate it in moderation. Just because you are trying to cut back, doesn't mean that you have to cut everything out except on the free days. Unless you have a sugar addiction, which I've been noticing seems to be rampant on spark. Be careful with the binging. I did the laxative thing when I was much younger and it can be addictive to your mind.... and bad for your body.
stephanie, we are kinda in the same boat. lost weight gained some back. your hungry as hell and im scared of falling off the wagon when ive been doing so good. i had one free day where i didnt go wild at all. then on one of my other teams a lady told me she uses sundays as her free day cause thats our weigh in day. so i thought it was a good idea. so tonight when i went to m y parents house i had some pasta salad, felt so guilty (probly cause i had a free day about 2 days ago) and went and tried to throw it up i think i got about half of it out.
I KNOW I KNOW THATS BAD. but the guilt i felt was so much!
i know as i stay on track the further in i am on my healthy ways ill be ok with a little something maybe once a week. right now i guess im just not ready to try and have a treat.
Ok yesterday I wan to platos closet and got some new jeans, I can tell by looking at the jeans if they will fit me or not...well my radar was a little off...I tried them on just a little while ago, the jeans are sizw 16 regulars and they don't fit, I can't button them without holding my breath and looking like a total idiot...Its kinda of a wake up call for me, if I can't fit into 16 that means I am eating WAY TOO MUCH JUNK FOOD, so today is the start of a I don't want to say diet, but new way of life and a new way of eating...I just got home from the store and guess what? Oh yeah I loaded that cart full of veggies, fruits, fruit juices, cheese, lean meats and gatorade and diet pop...its gonna be a B&%$# to start...its really hard to kick the sugar habit...I've just been letting myself go, I wear sweatpants ALL the time and they stretch out so I haven't really noticed how huge I am getting...So I'm gonna try, I need support ladies, I am leaving a comfort zone and its scary...real scary, I feel really depressesed about giving up the sugar, but I seriously can't handle going back to a size 18...I won't do it!!!!!!!
Wish me luck...cuz this is my first day and i'm gonna be cranky!
Long live the Butterflies.
