Getting Back on Track After Gorging

Tuesday, August 09, 2011

I completely sabatoged my diet this weekend! I ate until I felt uncomfortably full, and then ate a little more. The second night I had tons of sugar. I ate at least 1,000 calories worth of desserts! The more sugar I ate, the more I craved it; I was out of control. I felt guilty the entire time I was eating it, but just tried to ignore the voice in my head. Today, I woke up tired and sluggish and disappointed in how far I had just set myself back. Before, I would be so discouraged, I would have given up, but not this time. This time, I'm jumping right back on track! I made myself go to the gym and get started on working off what I had eaten, and watched my food intake carefully. Although it was difficult, making myself go to the gym this morning started a chain of healthy choices that turned into a healthy day. I am still upset about the 2 nights of gorging, but having a good day today is giving me the mental push I need to have an even better day tomorrow! I am proud of myself for getting back on track. emoticon

    You're back on track now! That's all that matters. Celebrate your successes! The way to kick the addiction is not to beat yourself up when you gorge, but to pat yourself on the back when you STOP! When you get BACK on track and start the good behavior again you should really "reward" yourself for doing it. It is HARD to get back on track after a backslide, but the good news is that the faster you get on track the smaller/shorter the next mistake is and the quicker you can get back on track next time. Eventually the slip-ups become fewer and farther apart until one day they disappear! Just don't QUIT and you WILL make it!

    Here's to small victories!

    You should feel so amazing because you got up and worked it harder! You didn't look back or continued turning days into weeks or even months of sugar overload and for that you should feel proud!!!! emoticon emoticon
