I like that Steeler71, the only thing for me is that I wouldn't be able to eat just a little and put it away. I have tried this time and time again. I have to either keep it away or eat it all. I used to feel weak but now I know I am addicted to sugar like someone else to heroin. Sounds dramatic but like for any addict ones too many and one hundred is not enough. I hate that I can't just have a little. It would make my life so much easier. However, I am going to try to wait it out for 15 minutes and maybe drink some herbal tea or chew some gum. My husband doesn't make it easy. He is tall and thin and bakes. I have gotten so frustrated with him that when he goes to bed I have dumped all his baked goods out. Sounds mean but to me it is mean that he continues to bake and buy sugar when he knows I have a problem with it. Maybe he just doesn't think. He loves me this I know. He's the man of my dreams, tall, dark, thin handsome & bakes all my sugary treats. Lol.

A friend of mine who is a nurse told me to wait 15 min. before munching, then maybe I wouldn't want to munch so much. If I still wanted to munch, take just the tiniest bite of whatever it is and put the rest out of sight.

I was crazy last night, had two small pcs of cake at a party in the afternoon and then one at a meeting at night....when I got home though had salmon cream cheese and melba toasts with tangerine juice...just kept snarfing, then in the middle of the night had cookies and almond milk. Guess I was due for a binge, but wonder when these evening cravings will stop. I try to eat during the day as is advised and I am still hungry all evening and often in the middle of the night. Guess I will pray about it.

I thought before munching and made a very healthy plate of snacks, but then took it to the computer and snarfed it down.

Binged two days in a row on cookies and candy and I as doing so well, now have gained a pound and a half. Try to keep sweets in the house so I don't becom anxious I don't have any and to ward off binges, but last night and the night before were horrible. Eat so sensibly all day and then in the evening and the middle of the night eat more calories than all day, and empty ones!

I really thought about a recipe someone gave me, embellished it a bit and it was so low cal....I am so proud to be eating so well..have a whole new opinion of myself. I was going to binge sooner or later, so thought about it and let it happen on almond milk and cookies for about 300 cal, glad it is over! emoticon

Maybe you can think of something to keep your hands busy. I can do several things, but you might come up with several more, the theory being that if your hands are busy otherwise, you won't be nibbling too much.So...what I do is use the computer (because I don't want to slop on it and I can type pretty fast), go outside and pull weeds or trim the bushes or mow the lawn, play a very, very fast solitaire game on my Droid...Klondike (Solitaires by Softick)...so much fun, it's almost addictive, but better that than food! Knitting is good, too, if you want to take up that hobby, good since in a few months (hopefully!) it will be getting cold.

I had a total binge yesterday. I am mad at myself. I ate half a bag of double stuffed oreos, a piece of cake, and a medium pineapple sundae with extra extra nuts. I will try harder today.

I am on a new kick, since my bad binge on Hershey's kisses about a week ago I have been thinking before eating almost everything. You see, I had lost about six lbs. and gained half back.

Hi BRATT6504, I feel for you and know what you mean. I try to keep them out to, but with family they want them and bring them in, it's not as bad if they eat them at that time, but other wise I feel sometimes like they talk to me (come and eat us) Sometimes I can do ok, but like you said if i'm really having a stressor not so much. And right now we are getting ready to move out our youngest daughter to college, so it's been kind of hard. But we can get there and do this together, heres wishing you the best on your way emoticon emoticon

I have not controlled my sweet tooth lately. I find it hard because I have to have sweets in the house for my partner because he needs to gain weight. I have been stressed to the max and eaten way to many sweets because of it. I do not know what I am going to do.

I know I can do it.

You've got the right idea. I hope that it works for you. Water can be one of your best friends. I've also found that if I can keep my mind and hands busy I do a lot better. I've gotten a lot of undone craft projects done lately. I might even tackle that messy closet that I've been avoiding. Great luck to you. I know that you will succeed.

Sure didn't think when I picked up the bag of Hershey's kisses at the counter at Target, but did read 8 pcs for 200 and had about 24 or 600 calories. Don't want anymore thank goodness, put them in the refrigerator. Have been pretty good about sweets lately, was leaning toward a binge.

Thanks for your input and support.....didn't think too much, just came home after having cake and coffee out and had a bit of left over dinner, pulled pork, could have been a worse selection.

Had dessert/bedtime snack of almond cookies and almond milk, still up watching the Olympics and oh so want more of both, but only craving, certainly not hungry, am losing weight and don't want to goof it up!

Still can't seem to "make the scale go down those two pounds," but feel good and am very mindfully eating and that is the important thing. Did catch myself eating in the middle of the night the last two nights which is an old habit, it may be the problem. Also strained another muscle and have been off exercise for a couple of days.....thinking good thoughts. emoticon

Doing better, more mindful, lost 2 lbs but gained them back. Not concerned as the scale is a funny thing and I feel the 2 lbs. lighter.

You know, I laugh a lot about myself too, such an emotional and binge eater. But today did think before I had the almond milk (40 calories) with two oatmeal, cranberry dunkers (180 calories) for a snack and hopefully it will be a dessert too, if I don't have an emotional reaction to something!

I've had great success with this when I DO this. When I eat emotionally my eating choices are sometimes very poor. Waiting for 15=20 minutes sure helps me make a good decision.

I was taught a new trick yesterday - breathe 3 deep breaths before you eat anything, then ask yourself what you really want. If anyone tries it, let me know how it goes.
I have been doing it for 2 days now and finding it to be helpful. Even if I'm starving I'm able to convince myself that 5 seconds to take a couple deep breaths won't kill me. It also calms down any stress or emotional stuff going on and I actually avoided the candy yesterday just by doing 3 deep breaths. It calmed me and cleared my head so I actually focused on what was bugging me rather than treating it with chocolate.
I hope this is a permanent change for me

Yah, but really goofed after dinner....7 caramels at 180 calories for 4 and really gobbled instead of munched. I do this occasionally, just binge, and I had a wonderful salad for dinner. Perhaps it wasn't filling enough. Just a good think I have quit munching in the middle of the night.

Felt like chocolate chip cookies so thought about it and then had two with almond milk. I am trying not to deprive myself. Then I went to a meeting and didn't have a piece of the cake I knew they would have. So had lunch and a snack instead of coffee and cake.

If I catch myself going to the pantry to munch, I sit back, have a glass of ice water, and think about what I need for my daily nutrition--usually it is protein so I have a couple tablespoons of peanut butter on an apple or on graham crackers or even on toasted bread. It gives me the satisfaction of "being good" and making healthy choices.

I want to say that was really good. Like you said you thought then made a decision Used your calories, and even split up the bag over 2 eatings. I am not going near it for now, because for now I have to stay away until any stress is gone! But I am really happy for you.

I thought very carefully before buying a diet pepsi and salt and vinegar Lay's potato chips. They were 290 calories/bag, but I had them as a reward for not binging on sweets for a couple of days. I had 1/2 bag with a ham sandwich for lunch and the other half mid-afternoon as a snack. In the past, I just did without and then binged on sweets about every three days, now I am thinking twice and using my treats as rewards although this one was kind of an expensive one calorie wise. I enjoyed them and ate the very last greasy chip.

Excellent choice for a snack...it's so important to THINK before putting anything into your mouth! emoticon

You gain strength, courage and confidence by every experience in which you really stop to look fear in the face.

Mistakes are the portals of discovery.

Don't be afraid to give your best at what seemingly are small jobs. Every time you conquer one it makes you that much stronger. If you do the little jobs well, the big ones will tend to take care of themselves.

It is never too late to be what you might have been.

While visiting family, my brother-in-law made home made scones! I wanted to resist, but gave into the temptation. I ended up eating two...even though I wanted more! Then I went for a 5.5 mile walk, and now I don't feel as guilty emoticon

An early Sat. a.m. with much to do, but I made a healthy breakfast choice. Came back from errands with a hunger & a craving - - I chose to eat a banana & drink some water. I know I cam make it to lunch now. emoticon
