Days until vacation: 24 - Keepin' it real

Tuesday, June 02, 2015

If you've ever been or maybe still are a binge eater, you know how hard it is to overcome the urge. I've been pretty successful these past couple of weeks, which is a huge accomplishment for me. It's pretty rare for me to go more than a single week without a binge, but so far I've overcome the last 2 weeks. Yup, 2 weeks binge free. I give credit to the Food Tracker and tracking every little bit. I just have to keep with it, that's the thing.

Weekends are killer for me. I like to take my kids out for ice cream and go out to dinners. And right now I am really dedicated to my goal so we've been foregoing those things. They have really not said anything about it, but I still feel guilty. Like I'm taking away their treats. But if it doesn't matter to them, I shouldn't feel guilty. I think that I should feel like really, I'm doing them a favor. But that's not the case. Once again, I am imagining that it's one of those things that will come with time and I will eventually get over it.

Oh, oh, I bought a dress of a Facebook sale group. I had posted looking for size XL maxi dresses. I met up with this young lady today and when I saw her, had a hard time believing she was ever a size XL, but I bought the dress. I got home, and much to my dismay, looked at the tag. The dress is a size Medium :( I tried it on to humor myself (and feel like I didn't get screwed out of $12) and it actually wasn't too bad. It's a little tight across the top. What do you think?

    It might have looked better if I smiled in that pic! LOL I had to have my 8 year old daughter take a picture since I do not have a full body mirror at home (I'm thinking it's time to invest in one!).

    Thanks all!

    Lovely dress. You look great in it. Binge eating is tough, especially on weekends when everyone one around you indulges. Hang in there.
