I try to be accountable and within nutritional guidelines during the week. but come Friday night thru Sunday, an alian takes over and I often sabotage what little accomplishment I achieved the prior 5 days.

Things aren't as dire since I'm still logging what I eat. This past weekend, I hosted a birthday dinner for a friend, and made a reaallllyyyy good German Chocolate cake from scratch. I did eat a 2 pieces this weekend, but I logged the food, and more important had the presence of mind to give the rest away.
I also ate some ice cream but weighed it and kept it down to a normal serving. So, perhaps I'm getting a handle on the portion control aspect of this battle. Changing the out of control binging habit, I think, is an important hurdle and I think I'm slowly breaking the eat it all mindset.

    There is no such thing as a forbidden food - just eat a normal portion and track it! Keep up the good work, you found the right answer.

    Becoming conscious of what your nutrition and embracing healthy habits are the right steps forward. I think before I bite!
    I also cook and bake healthier. That really makes a difference!
    Stay strong, stay focused, and be well!

    I agree, and I decided early on that if I was going to lose for good, that this is what had to happen. I had to be able to eat things like cake and ice cream once in a while if I wanted. Portion control was what made that possible for me.
