Remember How A Binge Really Feels.

This Sparked Me!

The next time you tumble off the wagon and binge, instead of wallowing in the inevitable guilt, sit for a few moments, close your eyes, and remember EXACTLY how it feels.

Remember the horrible over-full feeling, the feeling sick, the being unable to move - all the bad physical responses to over eating.

Then the next time you get the overwhelming urge to binge, sit down, close your eyes and recall those feelings and sensations. It will help remind you that you really do NOT want to do it.

    I did this the other evening. I had a hostess cupcake. I knew better but I just wanted it. After I ate it I said tomorrow will be a fresh start and remembered how good it has been feeling when I put on clothes and they feel loose.I know I will slip again but I feel on my way to being healthier and thinner!

    Thank you, Adele, that's a powerful tool to help when the binge-beast threatens.
