Day 4 of 60 the struggle

Wednesday, September 25, 2013

Today wasn't so bad and I say that because it was a typical day eating wise. I had a healthy breakfast, snack, lunch, and snack. But after work thats another story I got home and the binging began, but I must say I know what brought on the binge eating. When I got home I planned to cook dinner but we had a house full of guest and I couldn't cook. Also, the guest brought food..not healthy food a bucket of fried chicken and all it's starch friend mac n cheese, baked beans, mashed potatoes, and coleslaw. What do I do? I waited and waited for them to leave so I could cook. Then after so long they didn't leave so I ate and I ate the chicken and crappy sides plus dessert.

Then I felt horrible like another failure that has repeated it self in the history of trying to lose weight. But, I manged to exercise and now I feel a bit better. I must conquer my eating disorder to get to my goal. emoticon

    It sounds like you did pretty well for the day. Then for dinner, you had guests who brought food. I would think it would be polite to make a nice big salad to go with all that grease. It may not have been your plan, but I wouldn't think it would offend anyone either.

    I know how you feel. I fall into that trap again and again. I wish I had some good advice for conquering it. All I can say is keep trying! Every good choice is a success. Tomorrow is a new day!

    You're not a failure! Look at all of the positives you did for the day. We all make mistakes, it's how we learn from them and move on! emoticon

    You're not a failure!

    Could you have gone in and grabbed yourself a healthy snack? Also - and I KNOW this can be tough - would they have understood if you told them you were trying to be more careful about what you eat and, though you love the foods they brought, they're just not able to fit into your day? Then you can cook your food.

    I know it might hurt someone's feelings at first but, if they really care about you, they'll understand and support you. If they don't care enough about you to respect your decisions and goals, there's a problem with your relationship :0)

    Remember, you're wonderful and worth it. Sometimes you have to assert yourself, but you'll find that it only takes one or two times before people learn and expect/respect it.


    AND! You didn't give up!! You still fought for it and exercised... that's a HUGE win! It's tough to change all your behaviors at once and it won't always work out the way you want it to --- but you did the best thing you could do and got back up and kept going. Amazing!
