Nonetheless, learn to withstand the stings of time; rise on your feet for no one can ever bring back the soul in you and the beauty of life except you, and you and you."

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

Hello All! I hope you are having a wonderful Sunday. Today is my fourth day with SparkPeople and my fourth day of not binging. Feeling super strong and empowered.

Well, I have gained weight. Life is all about the choices we make, and I have been making bad choices. In my weak moments, I throw my hands up and give up. This is something I cannot afford to do. I must stay positive and on track or I will fail on my journey. I know I can do it.....I just have to make that choice.

Slow but steady wins the race!

Binged on lots of ice-cream goodies last night due to boredom and anger At least I can i.d. the emotions! Knew well what I was doing and didn't care! Woke up sick at 3 am and threw up. DH said "You know what you're doing. Don't tell me you're sick later!" So, I didn't!

DID NOT cause an intense anxiety attack and intense body itching this time! Had my anxiety pill all ready to go! No need for it! YaY!

Am discovering fruits are even starting sugar binges! Yesterday, had 2 c grapes and wanted to eat more, so had a ham and cheese on whole wheat bread instead! Stopped the sugar binge! emoticon

emoticon emoticon emoticon CRAMPERELLA!

Thursday, Had sugar binge starting with big bow (2c) Frosted Flakes and then 3 pieces of Pan Dulce including 1 french horn , 1 1/2 Pondreones cookies, and 1 pumpkin empanada. Doesn't even sound like much, but sure affected me. Make me real sick to my stomach all day. 2 double-doses of Alka-Seltzer didn't help throughout the day. Finally threw up stomach contents of lots of pure acid..Had direaah real bead, lasting on hour on the throne.

Couldn't eat the rest of the day!

Can't tie binge to emotions. Feels like I just wanted to pig-out on sweets. I do have a lot of stress and anxiety concerning my DH, but nothing out of the ordinary. Maybe it just got to the last straw. Wasn't thinking about him or our problems in particular,

I guess I've been kind of bored in general. I get through Sparking and Facebooking ear;y and then go in my room to watch TV. I get tired of watching TV, but have no motivation to do anything else. I guess I'm kind of depressed. Don't feel like cleaning house, which makes me happy and feeling fulfilled; or walking in the park, which reduces stress and makes me happy!

That's how Friday started. Ate a good b'fast of raw oatmeal, unsweetened strawberries, an 1 Yoplait greek 100 cal yogurt Then, I had a sweet tooth. Ate 2 cups fresh grapes. Indulging that sweet tooth on fruit, started me on a roll. I made 3 boxes sugar=free, fat free Jello pudding mixes with 4 cups 1% milk. Wanted more, but denied myself!

THE ONLY GOOD THING I DID IN THE LAST 2 DAYS! emoticon

Got sick again, this time with stomach and intestinal cramps. Took several doses of Pepto-Bismal and a few anxiety pills and slept all day.

Good morning

My name is Greg I am a grateful recovering Compulsive Over Eater and addict I was abstinent yesterday. I am doing alright in the grand scheme of things, pain and temptations are running rampant

Food and sex have always been my 2 main addictions, working to maintain sobriety in both of those is challenging to say the least. At times I feel like I am going to explode from the battle raging inside of me.

Overall, I did pretty good today. I did not overeat with the exception of having a low blood sugar. Then I stuffed it!. I still cannot stay calm when my blood sugar is 46. Of course I over compensated and the rest of the day was high. Hmmmm! Gained 2 lbs on my WL challenge.
but I was very active today.

Good morning

My names Greg I am a grateful recovering Compulsive Over Eater and addict. I was abstinent yesterday, but I felt like it was just barely. I felt compulsive and rushed when I was eating. I have been just generally feeling unwell as of late, been having some new pain. I have released a few pounds, my blood sugar has been pretty darn good so I am not sure what is causing it. I need to get in touch with my NPC that I see, I am not very confident about it though. Very nice guy and I like him a lot but living in small town I am getting small town care. We usually attribute stuff to my current conditions, however we don't do very much to check for anything new. I live kind of far away from a major “city” not that we really have them in Maine **chuckles** but I am going to have to figure something out, ill pray for guidance. Sticking with my routine serves me very well and that’s a lesson I am taking to heart today.

I was on an almost manic high today. I did not overeat because food was not available. But tonight was tough. I am sitting here right now with an upset stomach from overeating. Like I was making up for lost time. I had gastric sleeve surgery done and this is not helping. I still have not broken my old habits. Not good.

Slow but steady wins the race!

Good morning

my name is Greg I am a grateful recovering COE and addict, I was sober yesterday.

I think I got up on the wrong side of my new bed this morning, life is throwing some curve balls at me this AM and I am rather grumpy. I was sober yesterday, the temptation and cravings were strong, I white knuckled it.

I have found that structure and routine are paramount to my recovery, when I follow a routione my day seems to go better than when I don’t'. Weekends are a challenge for me currently I need to look at what I can do differently. Five days a week I go to bed early in the evening, and get up very early in the morning. Saturday and Sunday are my days off so my bedtime/rise time changes. I'll pray for guidance and see what changes I can make. If I leave things up to chance or “I'll do it later” most of the time I lose that coin toss and later never comes.

I am already starting to feel a bit better about my day, the sky is an interesting mix of gray and a slight pink hue.

Elaine, you like all of us are human, and we all make mistakes. Rather than beating yourself up, acknowledge why you did it and look was ways to avoid it in the future. Lord knows, how many times I failed. But as long as we pickup where we left off and move forward, then you are doing fine!

Hi
I have been given a goodie that I don't think that I have earned as over the last week or so I have felt so stressed that I have turned to eating a bit to much.

Enjoy the last weekend of summer! There is sunshine and a fall chill in the air here. I've seen lots of bears this week putting on their final stores of fat. They are definitely eating compulsively right now!...for a good reason. We humans however do not need to pack on the fat before winter, so eat mindfully and slowly, savour every bite, sit down and enjoy some nutritious food! Every day is a new beginning!

I am thankful to be on day 33 of food freedom!

Good morning
My name is Greg I am a grateful recovering Compulsive over eater and addict. I was sloppy for the 2nd day in a row but I was abstinent.

I could feel the control slowly slipping between my fingers, not that I think “IM” in control, I know that I am not. But by not doing as much for my program as I should I could feel myself drifting away, when I do that things start to slide.

I started my day off right with prayer, I will work to get a meeting in today, and follow my action plan.

Way to go Greg. My life is run one step at a time. That's all we can do. Keep working at it! I am going to be going a little nuts the next few weeks. My wife is just home from the hospital after having a knee replaced. So her duties are my duties as well as my own. Wish me luck as I know the house won't be cleaned right, or shopping won't be done right! But I will do my best.

Good morning team,
Hope you're all having a wonderful start to your Friday.
I'm doing much better since starting the new meds. Not hardly any pain at all now but I did have a next to sleepless night last night due to the prednisone, which was a surprise as it didn't do me that way last year when I was on it. But maybe it won't happen again tonight. I sure hope not. Anyway, I'm feeling much better and that's a true blessing. It's awful when you can barely move without pain, so when the pain is gone, it's truly a blessing.

Good Morning

My name is Greg I am a grateful, recovering Compulsive Over eater and Addict. Despite being a little bit sloppy I was abstinent yesterday.

I was truthful with my sponsor about my behavior and he said it was sloppy and not something I can be doing all the time.

I am learning quickly that the tools of the program are, well I will say just shy of a requirement in my opinion. Daily meetings, phone calls, being of service, writing, being in the books and the work is the only way this program works for me. It takes a daily action plan with the actual action to back it up that makes a huge difference. I once head a speaker say "I don't stay fit on yesterdays workout, I don't stay fed on yesterdays meals, so how can I stay sober on yesterdays program" I never realized the significance of that until now. I am glad I finally learned that lesson

I know you are familiar with this phrase Greg, but "one day at a time!" It can sometimes be "one minute at a time!" As we speak, I have so many "to-do's" and thoughts swirling around in my head and lots of fear around some of those. My brain is on warp speed and my body can't keep up. I need to slow down and take one thing at a time.

Hope you have a great day (everyone!)

I'm taking a leave of absence, as I had a blister surgically removed on the bottom of my foot, yesterday, and when my aide looked at it today, she told me it was done incorrectly, and asked if I was in pain, which I answered yes. Well, I'm going back to my doctor, to see if he can correct what the other doctor did. There is just so much pain right now, and I choose to concentrate on myself, to get God's Temple back to working order.

Blessings!

Good morning

My name is Greg, I am a grateful recovering COE and addict. I was sober across the board yesterday

I had some moments of temptation where I picked up a condiment sitting next to me and I was going to have a “taste” There was no particular reason the urge just hit me, I picked it up and thought what the heck am I doing, the 2nd time it happened I didn't touch it, after that I took it downstairs and put it away where it belonged. The lesson I learned is to put it on my food in the kitchen then put things like that away.

I was tempted in my Non-OA program to pick up but fear and program kept me sober. The fear of getting in trouble with the law is very fresh in mind, I do not want to go through that. I have realized I need to be in program, DAILY, my disease does not take a sick day, or vacation, day off or anything else, nor can I. That’s been a challenge for me in the past if I don't feel well often times program and other things fall to the way side.

I started today off strong, I got up very early and started working on my POA for the day.

I did most things I would have put off until “later” For Today summed it up for me

For Today: Whatever I want to begin doing, I will do today because tomorrow is too late

This has been something that I was aware of for a while but I didn't KNOW IT, if that makes sense. The same thing applies to needing to be in program daily, first and foremost. I was aware of this but I didn't KNOW It until yesterday, I am very grateful for that

Trying to check in with my teams more. Been up since 3am sick. I can't wait to get home from work. I was wondering why after only 13 mins on my recumbent bike I just couldn't go any further yesterday. Anyway, looking forward to getting well and getting my exercising in

Hello every one. I am having a really bad emotional eating day. It includes 4 candy bars and a half a bag of chips. I had so much sugar and salt that I could just vomit! I did my exercises--at least! My nerves are shot and all I want to do is shove some more food in my mouth! I know I have problems with my 'all or nothing' attitude. I have been fighting this for a week and today I lost! I have to get to a place where I do not beat myself up for failure and just start fresh!! I had lost a pound yesterday and I was afraid I will gain that back and more. emoticon

Slow but steady wins the race!

Good morning

My name is Greg I am a grateful recovering Compulsive Over Eater. I was sloppy today and not abstinent. I actually feel pretty good about that today. Not that I am happy I was not abstinent, but because I learned something and with reaffirmation from my sponsors I know it to be true.

I cannot be trusted when it comes to dishing out food. If its a bowl of broccoli yes I can be trusted because I don't like it *chuckles* but when it comes to something I like I will add more 9 times out of 10.

My meal for yesterday called for 1 cup of what I was eating. I put the cup in a small bowl, and then proceeded to freak out because of how "small" the serving looked. That bowl along with my other meal components were MORE than enough for me, yet I was filled with this irrational fear that it wasn’t enough, next thing you know i am SHOVELING more out of the pot into my mouth as fast as I can. I knew at the time I was engaging in compulsive behaviors, I even stopped to acknowledge that, then I kept right on shoveling.

That lesson was solidified this morning when I stopped at the store to get my daily morning energy drink. I only need .75 cents if I am going to get that, so taking my whole wallet or more money than .75 is unnecessary. If I only take a few precautionary actions my days would go so much smoother. I told my sponsor this morning I feel like a child not being able to serve myself at meals, or having someone else serve out what I am eating. 99% of the time if my meals are proportioned and ready to eat I grab what I need and go about my business. The simple act of portioning out myself puts me into another frame of mind. My sponsor explained that portioning is not childish its mature. Thats my ego driven self-will rearing its head. Today I will work on meal planning and portioning things out to avoid compulsive moments

the urge to binge is literally taking over my daily thoughts. I am on topamax to telp (its not) my doctor wants me to see a therapist which I feel may be extreme, maybe its not. I literally feel like I'm starving to death all the time, I want to do nothing but eat, think about where my next meal is coming from and plan my daily activities around eating and nearby food sources. How pathetic. Funny thing is I'm only 30 pounds overweight. I have NO idea how to get going or on track for weight loss with this demon in my head. And i get little comments like "I've never seen somone so obsessed with food, you've got problems" coming from my own husband. Ok, vent over lol.
