933 calories is not a binge...

Tuesday, January 29, 2013

And repeat, 933 cals does not a binge make! I think I have a problem. I freaked...and I'm not using that word loosely, I really did freak out last night. I was reading a thread about pb&j and I had the worst craving for pb. So I ate two slices of low cal bread, 80 cals, 1 tbs of peanut butter 90 cals and a glass of soy milk 100 cals. Which put me at 933 calories for the day when I've been averaging 650. I almost cried.

Then I started plotting how to undo the damage. Water fast tomorrow, exercise for two hours, perhaps drink some senna tea...I'm happy to say I woke up feeling much calmer and a bit nervous. I've had comments that I'm not eating enough...I've steadily nodded my head, then ignored all these well meaning people.

But it's time I admit it too. I'm not eating enough. Now does that mean I'm going to eat 1200 calories today...probably not, but the first step is admitting you have a problem right? So I'll work on this. I don't know how, but at least I'm self aware after last nights nonsensical panic attack. emoticon

    Wow, I was so glad when I got to the part where you said you know you are not eating enough... and then I jumped to the conclusion that you are now underweight and trying to learn to eat differently to gain, but on your bio on your page you state that it's embarrassing to be overweight. So... apparently you are trying to severely limit your calories to lose. Although that may work to some extent, your body interprets the deprivation as "starvation" and slows your metabolism down; plus, I would suspect that you aren't getting the nutrients you need by consuming so little. I hope you can get a handle on a healthy plan that will let you achieve your goals -- it might be helpful to see a registered dietitian for advice and monitoring.

    Best wishes for finding what will work for you --

    I'm worried about you.

    You are eating too few calories,
    and I don't think you can keep this up
    (unless you have an eating disorder)

    Try baby steps - you don't trip as often

    At least you know you aren't eating enough. Hope you are able to turn it around soon!
