Binge setback

Friday, February 03, 2012

I was doing good for two weeks until last night. Had a dinner date out at OCharleys and I even researched the menu and its nutritional content prior to going. I avoided the popcorn at the movies. BUT...

SOMETHING HAPPENED ON THE WAY HOME. emoticon

I stopped for gas and got two huge bags of chips and those dang donut holes. I use to eat the WHOLE BOX in one sitting but i took a handful and got a bowl of chips. Sat in bed and ate them then went back for more. OMG.... This is what I was doing as a norm.

Im saying all of this to be accountable for what I do. Did I put it in my food tracker, DAMN SKIPPY. My fat ass needs to know and be aware of where I make mistakes. emoticon

Questioned why did i have this intense urge to eat sweet and tart foods. Looked at my "My Days" app on my phone and yep...in one week Aunt Flow will be here.
I see now that she causes a lot of sudden urges. I actually blacked out while eating all of that. SIGH.

I promise to do better!

    This happen to most of us or all of us, just pick your self back up and dust your self off and move on and get back on track. Don't beat your self up over this. Today is a new day and try to do better today. I am still struggling with binges and some days is better than others but keep trying and don't give up. You can do it. Stay strong. foods doesn't have control over us we have control over foods. emoticon

    Colette, pick yourself up, dust yourself off, and start all over again! YOU CAN DO THIS!!! Think of all the things you want in life and if you have to fake it until you make it! That's right, I said FAKE it until you make it. Pretend you didn't blow it, pretend you ARE down to where you were last time, pretend you didn't have a binge, pretend the scale didn't move, didn't go up.. if you were less 3 months ago, pretend your there again and whatever worked for you before, pretend you never stopped and go back to what you were doing. I pretended my way to having 65 lbs off two years ago and I had blown it big time... I had lost a lot of weight and I couldn't do it anymore, not until I started pretending I was still doing HARD CORE and like I hadn't ever stopped, hadn't ever gained anything...

    Yes, I blew it again... ended up having some health problems and gained half back AGAIN; but I know that pretending before got me re-started, this time I've not needed to pretend, but I know if I get in a bind and fall off program, I know how to talk myself into getting back on, I pretend I never stopped, never had that binge, and that I'm still being successful. WHAT WERE you doing those two weeks? Do it from this moment, even if you binged this morning and or this afternoon, figure out what you did last week [how many calories] and act like your on one of those day's of total successful thinking. (I'm so afraid I'm not making since; but, it really does work.. it can help you get the ball rolling again!) FAKE it until you make it!
