Greg: Sounds like you are on an amazing streak!

I didn't binge yesterday, but I did go off track a little. Lesson learned: DON'T SKIP BREAKFAST!

Today is my birthday. I am actually feeling very good about this as I reflect this last year. Being underemployed (aka working for myself trying to get consulting gigs as well as build my craft business - at the same time trying to find a stable part time job) has been very very challenging, stressful and at times easy to fall and give up.

However - even with my emotional eating problems, I have managed to continue to loose weight, gain some stamina (not where I want it to be...) and learn new things how to manage my eating issues.

It has been a hard year, but a good learning year for me.

I am grateful for this. I am proud of what I have accomplished and am looking forward to the upcoming year continuing on this path.

Breathe - Live - Love
I am Imperfect and I am enough. I am worthy of love.

Good morning, my name is Greg
I am a grateful recovering Compulsive Overeater and addict, I was abstinent yesterday

Not a bad day feeling better than I did, I think the sickness has finally run its course, I will see how I feel today

I am grateful for a connection I made with another OA'er, we are able to speak on a blunt, frank level I am not able to with most, I can fully be myself, I am grateful for this gift.

I was able to be of service to this person and share my experience with them and let my HP speak through me which was able to help them break through something that was holding them back.

My sponsor always says when he is telling me something he is telling himself as well, I did not realized what that truly meant until now. All the things I have relayed to this person are things I need to be hearing and doing. I am grateful for this revelation

Doing okay today. I've been wanting to eat all day, though, but not due to hunger. I don't know if it was because of any certain emotion. I've been feeling centered and in a good place since I woke up. My stress levels are low, there's nothing pressing going on. I posted a blog entry about it, and then went to the den to do some sprints on the bike. That was enough to get me out of the wanting to eat mode.

You can Aunt Alice you just need to do it ;) I get up everyday and keep coming back, that's my secret. No matter how much I fail the day before, I keep coming back to my program everyday. I might not accomplish everything on my list, I might not be abstinent but I come back. I am not perfect (far from it) and never will be. I don't always feel consistent, but I keep coming back its as simple (and hard) as that :)

Good morning

My name is Greg I am a grateful, recovering Compulsive Overeater and addict, I was abstinent yesterday.

I am finally starting to feel a hair bit better after 4-5 days of a bad sinus infection. I have an appointment for a CT scan this week, I am hopeful that this will provide some answers either way. I have not been advocating for myself medically. My friend asked me last week where the hell the old Greg was who wasn't afraid to speak up and say what he needed too, he's been missing for a while

I had a decent weekend, yesterday I went with my buddies wife to visit him in rehab. It was good to listen first hand to people in the midst of the struggle and dealing with the fallout from their addictions.

It was tough to hear the pain and suffering, but it reminded me why I am in program, I hope it also helped my buddy to realize that his addiction is going to bring him pain and misery and maybe kill him

I have connected with a fellow OA member and we have a lot in common and our personalities are very much line, I can be rowdy self and talk how I normally talk which isn't appropriate when in meetings or dealing with most people **chuckles** This morning we started an early morning call to do some readings and check in and share, as well as commit anything we need to for the day. I feel pretty positive starting my day off this way.

I have offered before but have been pretty poor on follow up, but if anyone else would like to do this I would be totally open for a quick 5-15 minute call daily or every few days to do readings and check in. It would be a great service to me, and give me a chance to be of service. Drop me an email and lets work out a day/time that’s concrete, I fail when I don't have a concrete plan, its one of my character defects.

On track with food and exercise, but my mood really sucks. I quit artificial sweeteners recently, and have been in a funk for a few days. I didn't realize how dependent I was on them.

After a long period of pretty good control over this type of eating I find myself mostly out of control again.

It is very frustrating how quickly stress and the resulting binge eating can take over. Truly an addiction. Back to basics.

Had a big family blow out today and cried to exhaustion. Feeling these feelings, instead of eating, is exhausting...praying it gets easier soon.

Good morning

My name is Greg I am a grateful recovering Compulsive OverEater and Addict, I was abstinent yesterday.

I feel a bit better today because I was able to unburden myself with the truth yesterday. I have not been abstinent the last few weeks even though I thought I was.

I was making choices on my own, I took a comment by my sponsor as a license to do things “my” way. We had been talking about a choice I made and he said “you are your own person and you will do your own thing” he was of course talking about self will, but I took it as “you are your own person you can make your own choices” and I ran with it. I lied to myself, and I swallowed that lie hook, line and sinker.

I have been feeling miserable the last few weeks, both mentally and physically. I sent a msg to my provider to get a cat scan done to see if there is something going on in my head that is causing my headaches. When I am in physical pain I struggle badly with program and life in general. I don't want to do meetings, or talk to people or anything else. The pain in my head is so bad and I am in such a s**** mood. Some days I can push through it, other days it feels like not. I have one going on right now and I just want to go home and hide from the world, but I can't do that I have things to do, which really p***** me off, but that's life.

In the grand scheme of things I am alright, I am upright and above ground. I have a home, food, transportation, the essentials to make it through today. I am alright.

I had a good conversation with my sponsor yesterday, I was able to come clean with him and myself, I received and excellent call from a fellow member who told me exactly what I needed to hear. Sharing her ESH was just what I needed when I needed it. She apologized for not calling me back soon, I told her not to worry about it because her call yesterday was a life saver, and I was very grateful.

HP works in mysterious ways, I don't know who or what it is; but I cannot deny the little miracles I see everyday. I cannot believe this is all just chance and coincidence. Something greater is out there.

I have a grandson that is two and a half. Unfortunately, there is a custody battle going on between the parents. The mom has him. Sadly, she yells alot and being I was the primary caregiver before this upset I do not see him now. Pray all goes well and we will see him again. Meanwhile, may God watch over him.

Most of the shadows of this life are caused by standing in our own sunshine.

Good morning

My name is Greg I am a grateful recovering Compulsive Over Eater, I was not abstinent yesterday.

I made the “choice” on my own to have some XXX. I did not pray or consult my sponsor on it. I was just “in the mood to have XXX” and I had it. Although this didn't end up as a binge or bad incident its not behavior I can indulge in. Too much of this will lead me down the road to having some serious trigger foods.

Hi. I've really been struggling the last 2 weeks -was away from home, offline, and started losing control half-way thru the trip. I saw it coming...like a few stray bees, and then a swarm. The worst part is seeing it coming...that loss of control. I then binged the last two days away, and then continued 2-3 days once arriving home. Now I am back on spark, but am really trying to start again...logging on daily, listening to my body, etc. I feel so much self disgust when this happens, and even obsessing about the missed days of logging. I need to let that go. Start again. Struggling right now -big time.

Change the I to WE, and Illness becomes Wellness!

Not really much to say today, kind of in a funk. I am grateful for the meeting I had yesterday via Skype. It was simple and we just did some readings, I didn't feel like I had much to contribute but I was very grateful for the ESH the other person shared with me.

I look forward to doing more little impromptu meetings during the week

I've been a sparkpeople member for years but just recently started using it again. I lost 50 pounds on my own over the last few years, but this year my wife and I started a medically supervised ketogenic program. She's lost 35 and I've lost 40 pounds this year. I try to get 10,000 steps in daily (except Sunday). I have stopped eating emotionally for the most part but I still have those days when I start eating mindlessly, and it usually has to do with some stressors in my life. Sometimes I don't recognize it until after the fact. Thanks for having me on this team.

Grace and peace to you,

moonius

I can't believe I made it to day 50 without compulsively overeating, bingeing or fighting off compulsions and urges! I am grateful.

Good morning

My name is Greg, I am a grateful recovering Compulsive OverEater, I am not sure if I was abstinent yesterday or not. I cannot think of an instance where I engaged in behaviors that were unhealthy for me, but I have been slipping and sliding around the last few weeks and my heads all messed up. I wasn’t always slippery with my food I just feel like I am in a car on a snowy road and I am fish tailing all over the place. For those of you who don't live in snow, lets use a muddy road as the metaphor ;)

I have started today off strong with prayer, readings and proper snacks. I will work to accomplish my plan of action by praying for the strength to do the next right thing. I feel like a whiny baby saying the same stuff over and over again, but I really feel like crap this morning. I have a blinding head ache which seems to be the norm these days. I am hydrated, I had a decent snack before I came to work. My allergies don't seem to be acting up this morning, but something is off. I brought this up to my DR the other day but we really didn't resolve anything. I find it very difficult to stay on the path when I feel like this. I don't want to take actions I need too, which lead me to sitting in my chair doing nothing, which leads to me not giving a crap and ultimately I drift off track a bit.

Well whatever **chuckles** Ill change the things I can ;)

Facing tough times ahead...my baby sister (23) has cervical cancer and has surgery on Monday to remove the tumor (hopefully it has not spread) and yesterday my 97 year old great grandmother was put into hospice and could be gone in the next 30 days. A whirl wind of emotions are happening over here and I am trying my best to keep my cool and just keep on tracking my calories and not over eating no matter how much I want to. emoticon

Hi Marsha. In what way are you out of control?

If it's eating, try cutting back on starchy carbs and sugar for a while to cut back on the cravings or if that will not work for you try adding vegetables and a glass of water before every meal.

If it's exercise, try going for a walk as many days a week as you can until you feel like adding more. Or you can do crunches or bicep curls and gradually add more strength training.

Hi guys emoticon

Sorry I haven't been around in forever. I was crazy busy and doing some other challenges. What has been helping me with my EE:-

Reading and participating in Linda Spangle's 100 Day Book.
Weighing Daily
Going Low Carb
Training for a Marathon Relay

I must say that going ultra low carb (no starchy carbs, no fruits, no sugar) has really cut most of my cravings and impulses. Also trying to get cardio in most evenings (which is usually the time I succomb to EE) has been a great help.

I have lost 40lbs this year which almost as much as I have lost all together in the last 5 years!!

GREG - I'm so touched by your story. Please stay strong and keep fighting. Remember your ultimate goal when you are at your weakest. Continue to pray incessantly. All the best dude!

Good morning

My name is Greg I am a grateful recovering Compulsive OverEater and Addict, I was abstinent with my food but not sober in another program.

I had a good day with with my OA program, I had a few temptations here and there, I know its because my other program is out of whack. These 2 addictions have been with me since I was a small child, although they are not intertwined they seem to be closely linked. Then again it could just be when one addiction is in control the other ones seem to get antsy and want their turn.

Some days I grow weary of the life, some days the program is easy and other days not so much. I find certain days to take every ounce of strength I have and at times its not enough. Having to be on guard and vigilant every moment of the day seems to take a tremendous toll on me. The alternative is saying f*** it and doing whatever I want and waiting to die. Not that I want to die mind you, just listing my options. I know program is the only thing that will save my life and set me free, as I said its just incredibly taxing some days.

I started my day off strong following my routine/action plan. The last few days I have resisted the urge to set the alarm ahead a bit. Usually when I wake there is no use in doing this because I just lay there not really gaining anymore sleep.

I find myself watching the clock during the day just waiting for the time when I can crawl into bed, then when that time gets close I find myself messing around and not going to bed at that moment.
I am really not sure why, I am not going to “miss” anything. I just have a voice inside me saying, just one more episode on Netflix, or just one more level on your game, or just one more whatever it is I am doing.

Its my disease trying to throw me off balance, if I don't get enough sleep I seem to be weaker to its advances, then again when I do sleep X amount of hours it never seems to be enough. Kind of a damned if I do, damned if I don't scenario. I know I am a big guy, I know that is extremely hard on my body and its not a shock to me I am tired and run down. I guess what irritates me is when I sleep 8-10 hours I feel no different than if I slept 2-6 hours. I never wake up feeling refreshed and ready to hit the day. I feel like I should at least wake up feeling good, even if it doesn't last long. I know moving around and going about my day beats me down due to the weight, just seems like I should be able to start the day with a little pep. My goal is that getting this out will lessen that burden and not put me into a “mood” today, because its here already lurking just below the surface; I can feel it festering

I'll distract myself by being of service, following my action plan, pretty much anything to keep me focused on what I need to do

Hello everybody!

I am still doing o.k., but so much more busy now that I am back at work. This is the hard part, staying on track when time is so much more limited, but so far so good. One day at a time!

Good morning

My name is Greg I am a grateful recovering Compulsive Over Eater and Addict, I was not abstinent yesterday. If I am honest with myself its been a few days since I was abstinent. I had been fooling myself that small actions like taking a taste here, or a swallow here was “ok” I was able to do this because my schedule was hectic and I did not make meetings and outreach a priority. When I become lax like that my disease takes full advantage of it, and I go right along with it.


I started my day off with prayer, I will follow my meal plan and plan of action to keep myself on the path of recovery

Plan of Action

Pray
Submit Meal Plan
Call Phil
Pray, text Phil & have breakfast
Pray, text Phil after
Read Daily Readers
Read 2 pages in Big Book
Attend 9:45 Phone meeting, be of service
Make at least 2 out reach texts
Make at least 2 out reach calls
Practice my VO scripts
Read 2 pages in my VO book
Do Vocal Exercises
Put Tai Chi video together so I can start using it

You can do it. Just put your mistakes behind you. Acknowledge the (which you have done) and move on. You know what to do, put a plan in place to do it!

FAITH is not believing that GOD CAN, it is knowing that He WILL.
