I get the grocery shopping sales paper for the store I use, I also use coupons to help save a little. Ground beef is reasonable sometimes. Can use some for a casserole. Have you looked at the recipes on here? I have got a few suggestions from here.

Elise, Nice meeting you also. It can be done to buy healthy food that are inexpensive. I buy vegetables that are on sale. Make enough that I can have more the next day.

I hope everyone is doing great today. Elise, you can do this on a fixed income. I find what works best for me, is to eat my meals each day. I stay busy doing things, just to keep my mind off of eating.

Thanks for your support, Greg!!!!!! It's hard for me because I'm on a fixed income & I don't want to buy pasta, prepared foods, etc. I will try my best!!!!! By the way, where do you live? I live in NJ. How long have you been with Spark?

Have a plan Elise that's my suggestion :) I have a plan of eating, and an action plan. The meal plan lets me know what I am having for the day. Initially it seemed like a lot of work but now I can bang out a meal plan in a few minutes, its SO liberating to know what I am going to eat today and not have to worry about it.

Also an Action Plan is helps me a lot. I plan out what I am going to do for myself today program and work wise, I don't always accomplish everything I put down but I do the best I can. The more I get done the better I feel and the easier it is to be abstinent for me.

YOU can create your own plan, yes it takes a little bit of work, but just keep it simple and make it work for you. I suggest finding someone you can relate to who has accomplished the same health goals you want to and ask them how they did it and ask for their input, or create it yourself....

I know in the beginning I used to think this was an impossible task, it was too much work, too overwhelming..I just couldn't do it...but I was wrong *chuckles* it only takes me a few minutes to do the stuff I need to do to be healthy today, when I do it my days go a bit better, when I don't well my days don't go so well ;)

If you want to drop me a msg I am happy to share with you what I do and how I do it and offer suggestions but at the end of the day its totally up to you about what and how you do things :)

Hi Elise

well its not a secret but its a lot of hard work, when i do the work i am able to get by; when I don't not so much.

There are certain things I must do everyday if I want to be free of the emotional eating. I need to follow my action/meal plan. When I do those things I make it through my day. That doesn't mean I don't get emotional, it doesn't mean I don't feel like emotionally eating, but i get through it. A lot of the time I don't take all the steps I need to and thus I keep eating too ;)

I am working on getting up today and doing what I need to do in order to get through. Tomorrow ill get up and work on it again. I hope you have a wonderful day...feel free to drop me a line anytime....staying connected with other people is one thing that helps me :)

Good morning

my name is Greg I am a grateful recovering Compulsive Overeater, I was sloppy yesterday but abstinent

Monday was not a good day, it seemed like everything that could go wrong did go wrong. I was angry from the time I woke up until I went to bed. Everything and everyone annoyed me from the pets, to my mom, to the people on the meeting to people in general. I sucked it up and got through the day

I am looking at changing my meal plan a bit, which is a scary concept. I am used to doing what I have been doing for so long but it needs to be done.

I am focusing on getting more fruits and vegetables into my mp. Its tough because I don't like a lot of vegetables and I simply won't eat something I don't like. I was forced to eat food as a child and I am not reliving that every time it comes to meal time. My vegetable table might be small but I will find a way to make it work. I plan on figuring out how to incorporate more into it, I will even venture into eating things I am not familiar with or that I don't like at this time but I won't force myself, I've had enough of that in my lifetime.

My search for step sponsor continues, I will make some calls today to make some connections.

I picked up a book that's been on my shelf for years now called “if life is a game these are the rules” its been good so far. The firs chapter is on accepting myself and my body for who and what I am. Very interesting and a lot of good information that is helpful

Good morning

My name is Greg I am a grateful, recovering Compulsive Over Eater. I was abstinent yesterday

Things have been quiet the last few days good wise, I am still processing what was a rather surprising life event for me concerning someone I had in my life for a long time. I am happy that I am not angry about it it, I do feel betrayed but not angry. That person brought so much good into my life that it pretty much balances out the lies and deception. Still its hard to wrap my head around certain details, they will pop in my head from time to time and its like algebra I cannot wrap my head around it

I am not eating over it, that really is of little comfort at this point but its all I have

It looks like it is a difficult time of the year for those of us trying to have a healthy relationship with food. Despite a few slip ups, I am still losing weight. I don't understand it, but I'll take the weight loss!

having a rough time not stress eating. It is getting close to the holidays and so much going on. My husband graduates next week and trying to get the last of the christmas stuff. Not feeling like i am gonna have enough money to do it all. Just frustrating. So far i made good choices. We went out to eat this morning and i got a turkey club on 7grain bread with seasonal fruit instead of french fries. I didn't finish all my sandwhich there was a little over a 1/4th of it left.

Hi I am Stephanie. Nice to meet ya.


It only takes making that first step and then your on the journey of your life.

Help Your Family Stay Healthy Through The Holidays

With the holidays at hand, the potential for unwanted weight gain is high. What can you and your family do to eat in a healthy manner when tempting sugarplums and cheeseballs abound? While many wise eating tips apply throughout the year, here are a few that are especially appropriate for the season:

• When going to parties or family get-togethers, volunteer to bring a tray of nutritious choices, like fruits or vegetables. Others will certainly appreciate having healthy alternatives.
• Don't skip meals during the day with the idea of loading up at the big party later. Having a healthy snack before a gathering can help stave off hunger.
• Remember that beverages can contain a lot of calories. Eggnog is a tasty treat, but sparkling water is a healthier (and still festive) option.
• Examine your holiday traditions. How many of them revolve around food? Consider retiring some "comfort" traditions in favor of activities that have more positive paybacks, such as participating as a family in Operation Christmas Child or Prison Fellowship's Angel Tree®, or serving in your community or church.
• Celebrate together when anyone in the household reaches their milestones.

By being mindful of holiday eating habits, the joys of the season don't have to be offset by guilt at the bathroom scale.

Good morning

My name is Greg I am a grateful recovering Compulsive Over Eater, I was abstinent yesterday

Its been a real challenge the last few days, I am battling a sinus infection and bronchitis so my resolve is weak to say the least. I was tempted by many things yesterday but managed to stay the course, there is a tin of XXX sitting about 10 feet away from me staring me in the face, I just have to keep saying “its not my food, its not my food” I feel like I am holding on by my finger tips, but I am holding on.

Prayer doesn't seem to be doing much good these days, but I continue to do it. My sponsor keeps telling me I don't believe in my higher power or that he will take this away from me, I guess that is actually true, I am just uncertain what to do about it. I don't feel like I can just get up and “believe” I've tried, it doesn’t seem to be working that well, but I will keep trying.

Good morning

My name is Greg I am a grateful recovering Compulsive Over-eater and I was abstinent yesterday.

I am coming back from a few days of vicious relapse (Fri/Sat) Things went off the rails on Friday and I dropped rather quickly into a dark and suicidal track. I am not really sure what happened, I was more or less fine one minute and then it was like hitting a brick wall.

I revisited those feelings of being overstuffed, sick, disgusted, hopeless, fearful and just praying it would be over.

My higher power kept putting people in my path to help me but that just enraged me, finally I had a break in the insanity and I was able to overcome the fear I had about calling my sponsor and I picked up the phone. As always I got some great suggestions that I acted on. I got onto a meeting as soon as I could, I have started to read pages 83-88 in the BB everyday. I have been reaching out and taking outreach calls. I am starting work on the steps again. The past few weeks the message has been smacking me in the face “Recovery comes through working the steps” I seem to have heard it everywhere and from many people so I am sitting up and listening

Good morning

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

Yesterday was decent enough, I could have gotten a little bit more accomplished but its too late for that now, I can only work today to get what I need to done. I did sign up to be a backup moderator yesterday for phone meetings. I have been dragging my feet about doing it but someone inspired me to push through it and do it anyways.

The drama at work is finally coming to a head after two long years. We have someone there who is just the meanest, spiteful, hateful person. He has been the cause of much resentment in my two years working there. I feel kind of bad with what I am about to say, but then again I don't feel bad. His behavior finally reached the point where his job is in serious jeopardy, he has crossed the line so many time, but this time he hopped over too far to come back. The only reason he is still there today is we need him for the upcoming sports broadcast season.

I cannot help but think: haha sucker you brought it on yourself!!! And then my HP brought me back down to earth by having another awesome program person remind me that he must be in an incredible amount of pain to be as miserable as he is. I have to say I was extremely resentful at having to admit the truth in that. Have I not been that miserable in the past? Have I not done and said things hateful to other people? Have I not done things that are just despicable? I sure as hell have, so why is it so hard for me to forgive and love this person? I printed out “Love and Tolerance of others is our code” and I put it in my prayer book so I can read that everyday, yet I am struggling badly with this situation. I want to feel bad and pray for him, yet I feel joyful that soon our work environment is going to be SO much better with him gone. It was pointed out to me that his whole world will come down around his feet when this happens. Actually now I am ashamed that I feel gleeful about this. All I can do is pray for him, and pray that I find compassion in myself for this person.

(this is a long one, apparently I had a lot to say today)

Good morning

my name is Greg I am a grateful recovering Compulsive Overeater I am happy to report I was abstinent yesterday.

Its been a rough few weeks, I never “left” but I really wasn't in either (if that makes sense) Most people talk about going out, basically I kept coming back everyday but I wasn't being abstinent.

Some days I outright lied about it, other days I lied and didn't realize I was, I felt like I was abstinent and I fooled myself, other times I just swept it under the rug because it was “no big deal” I apologize for lying to you. The one thing I know about myself is I am a liar and an addict, or perhaps I am a liar because I'm an addict. I guess it really doesn’t matter why, I lie to myself and other people, well I want to say all the time but that is not true. I often use lies intentionally and unintentionally in order to deal with things in my life. If I messed up and don't want to feel the shame of upsetting people or feeling like they will be mad at me or I let them down, I lie. If I f***** up yet again and I feel so ashamed of myself and I just feel stupid, I lie. I don't lie all the time though, as a matter of fact most of the time I am pretty truthful these days, but the times I am not have a lasting impact on my life.

I woke up this morning from a 3-4 days binge, it wasn't all at once but I didn't follow my meal plan, I ate binge foods, in some cases I overate. I find it hard to say I “binged” when I only ate “one” sweet or one slice of this or one bowl of that, I rationalize that its on my no fly list, but I didn't eat a ton of it so why is it a binge? That sort of thinking drives me crazy, I guess it doesn’t matter of I eat and entire box of this or a whole package of that....I am still not abstinent and those are the terms I need to think in. I need some areas of my life to be black and white..either I was abstinent or not abstinent. I am still trying to figure out exactly what that means for me, but I am getting there. I have very good guidance from my sponsor and 12 step brothers and sisters. Now I just have to pray for the strength, and humility to be willing to go to any lengths. I have never gone to any lengths for anything in my entire life not even food. Sure Ill go a ways for food but even then if it becomes too much work too complicated I will abandon it, just like everything else in my life

I had to be honest this weekend with my voice coach that I put in the bare amount of work necessary to prepare for my lessons but I still meet his expectations. That kind of fluffed my ego a bit to think I didn't do crap but I still showed up and did a good job.

He was disappointed and said if he knew that s how it was going to be from the beginning he never would have agreed to help me, that I wasted his time, the time of the folks helping me pay for it, and he said more importantly I wasted my own time. He wasn't mad, or upset..he just laid it out on the table..I committed to him I would work on my career daily. He also said that I met his expectations because he had none. I walked in off the street and started doing radio and voice over so he didn't expect much from me, that kind of took the wind out of my sails, however I do have a spark of talent and if I work hard I can turn that into something. I am going to send him an action plan for my VO work just like I do for my OA work. Those 2 aspects of my life are tied together. I need to do the work in both of them to be successful, but I am finally starting to get it, that OA & Recovery need to be first before everything. If I cannot be abstinent I cannot recover, if I cannot recover I cannot lose the weight, if I cannot lose the weight I can't start to feel better and put the effort in I need to make my dreams come true.

We have been working on a piece for a few weeks called The Tell Tale Heart. He said I did the best job on that piece than I did anything else he has ever given me. He also said that he didn't feel like I would ever commercial work, which is the basic ads that you hear on the tv/radio everyday. I have not been able to grasp the concepts of a “conversational” read. However when put in a position to actually have to act or go over the top I seem to excel at that. I had said in the beginning I wanted to work in commercials, movies, tv, video games, animation...whatever I possibly could....After this weekend he said he feels like acting is what I am going to become good at and I should find some acting classes to take. The disease part of me is telling me I am not good enough, that I cannot just at 42 years old just become an actor of any sort. People have those dreams everyday and are not able to realize them. I know what I want, I am not sure how to get there but I know what I want to do, now I just have to put the work in. I cannot be afraid anymore, I cannot be lazy anymore...I must do the work in all aspects of my life. Most importantly I must do the work in my program, I must become willing to go to any lengths necessary. When I do this the rest of the pieces of the puzzle of my life will start to lock into place and my path to wherever my HP wants me to go will open up.

Years ago my best friend told me I needed to do stand-up comedy, when we were together I was free to be myself, but I was scared and lazy (mostly scared) I could see myself doing it, I could see myself going to Hollywood and becoming famous. It wasn't a delusion of grandeur, it was a possibility. I also know I would have burned bright and died young, My disease would have drunk that all in and killed me I have no doubt about that. Now here I am again at that cross roads, I am still scared, but now I have program and a higher power in my life, and if I put those things first and trust that my HP has my back, I will be prepared to handle whatever might come my way, will I be in movie and be famous? I have no idea, maybe, maybe not. I do know that whatever happens, wherever I go I will be prepared to handle it, and as long as I stay close to program and my HP my disease won't have the chance to chew me up, spit me out and kill me.

Good morning

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

I am not really sure whats going on these days, I have been out of sorts the last few weeks. Life seems to be spinning more out of control each and every day that goes by . I've been praying when I get up and before my meals, I've worked on getting back into as many phone meetings as I can.

Still I am run down and not feeling well, I truly am powerless over the food and I have just been giving in the last few weeks. Prayer and turning it over to my HP seems doesn’t seem to be working at all.

The ongoing suggestion is to turn it over and let my HP handle things and I need a power greater than myself. At this point I really don't know what that looks like or how to do it. I start my day off with prayers from program and ask for help to get through my day, at various times during my day I say quick small prayers asking for help, it all seems useless because I am still suffering.

I am starting to get resentful at being told to let my HP handle things because he doesn't seem to be doing anything. I am doing the best I can at the work, yet the compulsion is still here, in full force and as deadly as ever

All I know how to do is keep coming back like I have done for the last 4 years. Yesterday someone asked me if I thought I would ever get recovery, and I said yes without missing a beat if I just keep coming back I will recover, but as I sit here this morning those words hold little value to me.

My blood sugars have been running really high as of late which in turn makes me feel like crap. I have been off my meal plan a little bit here and there, but nothing to justify how high my sugars have been running. I'm going to email my Dr for suggestion

Good morning

My name is Greg I am a grateful recovering Compulsive Over Eater and I was abstinent yesterday

I choose to give away my abstinence on Saturday. I attended a birthday party for a family member and committed to my sponsor about what my plan was, and the food I was going to stay away from. Once I got there and saw all the food in front of me, the plan went out the window. I ate every food I said I would not consume, some of them binge foods. It was a very disappointing day for me, next time I will either eat before I go, or perhaps even take my own food. My sponsor suggested getting up and excusing myself under those circumstances and going to call someone.

I have started today off great. I got up early, prayed, watched last nights walking dead, weighed and measured had my snack, did self-care and got off to work. I look forward to a great rest of the day

Plan of Action

Pray
snack
self-care
work
service
mini-meeting
pray and have breakfast
text Phil before/after my meal
9:45 meeting
snack
make 2 outreach calls
pray and have lunch

Good morning

My name is Greg I am a grateful recovering Compulsive Over Eater, I was abstinent yesterday

I was able to unload some darkness I had been hiding deep inside of me for most of my life this morning, it feels cleansing to get those secrets out in the open and not have the person judge me or walk away from me..

I believe that I have not attained long term, lasting sobriety because I don't deserve it. I still harbor guilt and shame from things that were done to me and that I did to others through my life. My actions that impacted and scarred another person seem unforgivable to me. I believe this is the reason I have not fully surrendered and let my HP take my transgressions from me, I don't feel like I deserve to have a happy, sane, useful life because others touched by my BS still suffer. People can tell me all day that I am not responsible for the things that happen in their lives, but when the things I have done may have touched off the path they are on, I don't know how to find lasting forgiveness no matter how much I pray, no matter how much I beg and plead, I am still stuck in the darkness, still punishing myself.

For this very minute I have a little peace and serenity as I write this, the fear is just below the surface that it will not last but I am doing my best to ignore that. I will do my best to stick close to program today and work my action plan

Plan of Action

Pray
snack
self-care
work
mini-meeting
breakfast
9:45 meeting
be of service
snack
make 2 out reach calls
lunch
make 2 out reach texts

Good morning

My name is Greg I am a grateful recovering compulsive over eater, I was abstinent yesterday

I had a decent enough day yesterday, I was over tired and it was busy but I got through it. I went to lunch with a buddy and he offered me left overs to take home to my mom, of course I accepted them ;) but on the way home as I was trying to decide if I would eat them straight away or wait till later so I could count it as “legal” I knew I had to not only throw them away, but open the container and dump it into the trash so I would not pull it back out. I have many hang ups when it comes to food, freshness and things of that nature, so thankfully my compulsive nature in that area is actually helpful at times. I will never pull anything out of the trash that I think has touched something else, now if I left it in the container and gently placed it on top, that's not really eating out of the trash is it ;) oh the lies I can tell myself. I took the right action and listened to my HP voice inside of me and dumped it out and went about my business.

Walking into work today I realized I feel pretty good (for me) I sometimes get lost in the thinking that I never feel good, ever. While that is true I failed to realize until this morning that despite not being 100% and feeling well rested and “Good” every morning, I can feel as good as I can be. Little mental tweaks (or hacks) like that have played a difference in my life and recovery. I highly recommend hacking life to suit my needs ;)

Good morning

My name is Greg I am a grateful recovering COE, I was not abstinent yesterday.

I have been feeling poorly the last few weeks to due sinus/flu issues. Yesterday I went out to shovel and afterwards I had some tightness in my chest, and my heart didn't feel right. After some humming and hawning I went to get checked out at the hospital, praying the whole way I didn't pass out behind the wheel. After 3 hours or so it was deemed I was ok, all the tests were fine, nothing showed I had any sort of heart issues. I need to follow up with my DR on Thur which I have an appointment scheduled. So after that whole scare what is the first thing I did? I went and got a fried substance I had discussed with my sponsor I would like to get away from.

I was scared that I had some serious health issues going on, and when I find out I am alright the first thing I do is run and get something unhealthy, its just baffling.

For today I am going to eat healthy and stick with my meal plan

I am finally starting to feel better. I have not been on the loop as of late due to being sick, and because my main email address was booted off the loop for technical issues and I forget to use my new one

I went completely off the rails this week. Three days of bingeing and three days of feeling physically awful. Back to square one.

VICKI - I'm not sure if our situations are exactly similar, but I had the same feeling a couple of weeks ago! I was talking to my husband about it, because he suffered for a long time with digestive problems. He used to get the same feeling, but started taking a couple of things for his digestion and everything got better over time. So I started taking the same things right before eating - HCI and Daily Essential Enzymes by Source Naturals. That blocked, full feeling at the base of my throat went away.



Reminder to self: Stay in the moment!

first off, emoticon emoticon on your health streak Greg.

and a emoticon if also in order to our birthday girl.

Today I had a good day, it is my one day a week off working out and I still worked out at work since my job is so physical, my work alone I got almost 7000 steps.

\i ate healthy today. And and prepped for tomorrow to get up and really start off with a kick as work out.

I could say more, but I will save if for another day.

I am so glad to hear many of your success as well as challenges, it all helps to keep us honest and encouraged so we can help one another.

Blessings and love

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.

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

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."

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.

Reminder to self: Stay in the moment!

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 :)
