Dealing with the binge & battling with the bulge...

Tuesday, July 09, 2013

So, I'm going to try & document,somewhat haphazardly, my efforts in managing binge eating & the path to wellness and reaching a healthy weight.
As some of you may have read on my forum posts I am a self-confessed binge eater. The problem is manageable in company but I have real problems when I'm alone, I binge a lot in secret. I'm coming off a big binge at the moment and that's what inspired me to join SP and to get the support that I need...
So, tonight I'll be alone in the house after dinner while my partner is out with friends. This has high binge alert written all over! My plan is to go for an evening swim when dinner has gone down to get me out of the binge environment and to direct my energy in to some healthy physical exercise!

Here goes, I guess... Time to be fearless!

    Thank you so much! I find that some gentle exercise and meditation has been helping me the last few days. I feel much less frazzled than I did on Sunday; when I just felt an overwhelming sense of guilt and disappointment for my mammoth weekend binge...

    I struggle with the very same problem; binge eating, especially when I am alone. Sparkpeople is a really good place to get support and track your journey. emoticon

    It sounds like you have a good plan to keep yourself busy and fit in some exercise. I hope it works for you--good luck!
