Dale, I don't quite understand why you decided not to post here anymore but I hope you will change your mind. I don't think anyone, including myself wanted to cause you to stop commenting on this forum. If my comments caused you a problem please know I didn't intentionally or otherwise mean to do so.

No one here means any harm to others of course. Inadvertently though, there exists a presumptive air that only one view of the world's people can belong to this team.

I don't post here anymore because there is a change in the open, safe and all inclusive feel of this team that the Spark People website is here to serve.

Emotional eating has no religious or political affiliation; no exclusion of anyone regardless of their beliefs or ethnicity;

Emotional eating is an addictive behavior which deals with stress in compulsive and harmful ways. No matter where in the world one lives, what their beliefs or culture teach them, ALL deserve safe space to share here rather than experience exclusion.

In loving service to human kind around the world and all sentient beings,

Suthrnwmn and Sarah .. I am right there with you. My roommate has been in the hospital for a couple of weeks. It was easy to fill the house with good stuff and eat properly. Today the roommate came home and right away starting complaining there were no cookies, no potato chips, why aren't you cooking rice with dinner or potatoes or pasta. My stress level went from zero to 8 in 3.1 seconds.

Paula, thanks for the links. I appreciate it.

Good for your Suthernwmn for getting back on that horse so quickly. I'm trying hard to keep my temptations out of the house completely - been off 'added sugar' for 17 days now. Some days are definitely easier than others.
I will lift you up in prayer.

Hello everyone. Just gotta vent to get it out.....I was doing pretty good for a week or so. I was able to have Life Savers at night without going hog wild that night or the next day. Granted I had the whole roll instead of the 4 that is a serving but I didn't clean out the house of all sweets. Then last night after a dust-up (more aggravation than argument) with my son over the phone, I started hunting for sweets. I did manage to stop myself from doing a clean sweep of all sweets in the house but I ended up having 2 rolls of Life Savers instead of one. Now I'm starting again to limit it to one roll of Life Savers a day and then zero Life Savers. Wish me luck and determination until it becomes a habit. Pray for me that God will take the urge away. Thanks for listening/reading.

Good Morning, EE Teammates!

I am spending a few minutes here in "Sparkville" before the socializing demands of this day begin.

I sincerely hope that we all take time during the day, to reflect on the truth that we enjoy the freedoms we have in the USA, because of the Creator God's mercy and the personal sacrifices of many who served (& still serve) in the branches of the US military. emoticon

And to those who know & appreciate the power of prayer - I ask that you join your prayer for this country with those of mine on this Memorial Day 2015! emoticon

God bless!

Ima

Something to know about this gal "Ima" - I follow the Savior of the world!

I stand in awe of the salvation, through Christ Jesus, that Creator God has granted me. May you enjoy the same!

I am so very thankful that the door of access is permanently open to The Creator & His beloved Son, Christ Jesus!

hI TAL, when I mentioned nutritional values or eating for nutrition, I'm referring to the NUTRIENTS located on the bottom of our food tracker such as, CARBS, PROTEIN, FAT, and FIBER. When I meet those nutrient goals, my cravings factor goes down. I also focus on calcium because I don't always get enough. I hope that made sense. Have a great week. emoticon

I totally get what you're saying PAULA.. those carb and sugar addictions are horrendous but manageable when I've gotten my nutritional values in for the day. If not, I not only feel my cravings coming on...I know it's a binge waiting to happen. It just makes sense to eat this way although I still struggle with the 'habit' of wanting to eat for the pleasure of eating (tasting, chewing, swallowing, etc). Eating is such a complex matter and there's so much to consider as we're all different. Best wishes on your journey. emoticon

I liked when ICAN_IAM_IWILL stated "when I eat for nutrition." That is really a hot topic for me. I'm trying to relearn how to eat for nutrition rather then for comfort. I've noticed that eating for comfort is mindless eating. I can get out a package of crackers, and before I know it, the entire package is gone. Into not so thin air (because it ends up on my hips and waist). I also agree that when I'm eating healthy, I have less cravings. Beating back the carb and sugar addition has been difficult, but no hopelessly so. I've realized that I need to chart both calories and carbs (thank goodness for SparkPeople nutrition tracker!), in order to make sure I'm eating balanced nutrition.

I've learned from personal experience that when I eat for nutrition... I have less cravings and cravings are a big trigger to binge. So I'm doing what I can to keep healthy foods on hand that can be prepared quickly.
In the last 2 weeks, eating a huge 8 cups green salad with some lean protein as a main meal for dinner and drinking two green smoothies a day makes for good nutritional choices. Also allowing for indulgences (dark chocolate and low fat icecream) in moderation, and not allowing myself to get hungry has been a game saver for me.

Have a good weekend, find what works for you and keep pushing. emoticon

Hello, well, I planned on getting back on track this week and compared to how I have been eating, I'm doing pretty well, but not as well as I had hoped. I want to get back to Paleo eating but I've had a couple of rolls and crackers/cookies ( with the daycare kids). I have to be happy with my progress but I really need to kick it in to high gear and just don't know how. Ugh, and I also found some leftover Easter candy I hid from the kids! lol Gotta just keep trying I guess. :)

Good Morning everyone

Crystal-I was thinking the same thing yesterday, it is like being an alcoholic, if I take in a sweet, it is hard for me to stop. It takes a few days to get back on track. Right now I don't even miss the sweets. Glad you are getting back on track.

Hope everyone has a great day!!!

Happy Tuesday to all!! I have been hiatus for awhile, trying to get back on track the last couple of days! So far so good, I agree it helps me just not to eat sweets at all. I am just like a alcoholic I can't stop with just one I end up eating the whole bag or box!!
Good luck everyone, we got this!!

Katie here. I'm relatively new so not sure if this is how this thread works, but here goes:

Today wasn't a bad day. I FINALLY got enough protein, and when the hubby and I were playing cards, I got a BIG urge to eat the whole 16 oz bag of Twizzlers, but settled for some popcorn instead. Today, IMO was a win.

Good luck to all with your trials and may you have handy, healthy snacks to help you through.

To get what you've never had, you must do what you've never done.

I am a mess. I keep thinking this time will be different. I can eat one of something, like a small ice cream bar. You know what? I can't.Can't pass up a sale plus a coupon so I bought Magnum bars. Telling myself I will have one and one a day for the rest of the week. Know what?? I ate the entire box last night.

I keep telling myself (1) don't buy stuff like that and (2) Get through the first few days, and it will get a drop easier Not easy, but a little better.

So here I am repeating the same old story and starting over.

Despite my best efforts I'm not losing a bit. I am finally back on my thyroid meds after changing doctors three times, so hopefully things will get back on track now.

I am not doing well at all with losing. Not one ounce,but reading about others with good losses really encourages me. Keep up the good work!

Good Morning everyone! I'm doing good. Lost 9.8 lbs. this month. I have stopped eating now at night. I said right now, because I know that anything can cause me to get off track, but for now I'm doing great. Hope everyone is having a great day!

We got the rest of the old porch deck torn down this morning and will start building the new deck probably this weekend. Tomorrow is our BIG monthly shopping trip where we buy groceries for the rest of the month. I'll get in a lot of walking. Then tomorrow evening we'll drive 45 miles to go to our favorite restaurant to celebrate our 19th anniversary a few days early (April 14th). This serves two purposes. We celebrate our anniversary but it also saves me having to cook after being on my feet all day. So it'll be a long day.

It's great to come on here and see so many people who did well or stayed on track during the holiday! Great job on the weight loss this week Joyce! That's amazing! I did not do so well yesterday, didn't even really try but I am completely determined to get back on track today! One of my main goals is to loose a significant amount of weight before summer so I can actually enjoy summer activities with my family and that only leaves me about 3 months to do that so I need to get going!

Good Morning everyone!!!

Famolly-We all have days when we binge. You will get thru this!

Carriedd-Sounds like you have plans for not binging for the holiday!!! Good for you!

I'm doing good right now. I think what is working for me, is I try to stay busy. I use to come on here a lot and post when I felt like eating. I appreciate everyone being here.

This week I lost 4.1 lbs. Hopefully the weight loss will continue, this was the 3rd week I've lost weight.

Hope everyone has a great day!!!

I am protecting myself from the holiday binge! I bought each kid a large egg with a few pieces of candy just for them! No jelly beans are set out in the candy dishes and told my stepmom to bring the desert so she will take the left overs home. Even though I am making macaroni and cheese I am not eating any. ill stick with some ham and greens and a vegi and fruit trays are my plans. I may be tempted by the devils eggs! But I am determined. At least today I am!

If ever there is tomorrow when we're not together.. there is something you must always remember. You are braver than you believe, stronger than you seem, and smarter than you think. But the most important thing is, even if we're apart.. i'll always be with you "Winnie Th Pooh"

Just binged out on the holiday chocolate after receiving some potentially difficult health news. I don't feel better after the binge, didn't even feel bood while I was binging. Now my stomach hurts.

Deveon-how did you stave off that binge?

Afternoon, hmm, stretches...? That's a great idea for first thing in the morning. I can't wake up any earlier than I do to exercise, but I could probably handle some stretches and that would be great if they helped me with stairs and general mobility. Thanks for sharing that. :) My day is going great so far. I did the treadmill for 20 minutes and want to do my bike also before or right after dinner for 30 minutes. I hope everyone is having a good Monday. emoticon

Good morning and I feel great!
I started doing stretches every day last week and today I noticed that going up and down the stairs with laundry is a LOT easier. It is so hard to exercise and a few minutes of stretches is all I can do before I hate it -- but it sure has helped me this week.

Thanks everyone!!!

Mrskateduvall- All of us have trigger times and trigger foods. You learned yesterday. I've done that. I'm started to track anything before I eat it. Then I know I don't want it when I see how many calories or carbs it has.

We will all get where we want to be.

Hope every one has a great Sunday!

I have learned that one of my trigger times is when I am alone. Yesterday, I had a healthy breakfast, lunch. I went to Costco, and nibbled there ( which started it) after a very long day, I returned home, by myself. No one to cook for. Nothing planned. So I went to jack in the box and consumed probably two days worth of calorie. I was tired, alone, with poor planning. I could have brought home a salad already made from costco. I could have put dinner in crockpot before going. So I have learned.

I, also, have trouble with snacks but they must have some salt in it, sweet, filling but not to fattening. Is that too much to ask for(LOL)?

Having the same problem myself, ( choosing to eat a snack after a long stressful day) maybe you could schedule an after dinner snack so that it does not feel like it's a bad choice since it was in your calorie range anyway? Just a thought. :)

Today is okay so far, I have had not had enough veggies or water yet so that's not so great but I'm not over eating, and will definitely get my 50 minutes of exercise in after dinner which will be spaghetti squash with tomatoes and feta. Yum! :)
