The past couple of weeks have been difficult for me, too. I went out of town unexpectedly and was completely thrown out of my routine (for a second time since joining SP). It's taken a lot of energy to get back into my routine. Weigh in is tomorrow and I'm actually scared about what the scale might say. I weigh myself everyday, but only officially count it every 2 weeks and my weight has been all over the place the past few days. I think I'll have to get a pep talk from my husband before I get on the scale.

Thank you for posting that, NOMOREBREAKS. It really helps to know that other people have the same strugges that I do.

The voice inside me was telling me what would happen if I reached for another handful of chocolate chips, but I kept reaching and reaching and reaching, anyway.

Thank you also for choosing not to be guilty. For me, guilt only seems to make things worse.

I think I will weigh in this Saturday. I'm too eager to know...I actually think that I'll be the less or have lost. Sure I had two bad days, but I stepped up my workouts and am burning twice what I was before. This is actually kind of strange, but I do not feel bad about my binge days. I feel like that was something that shouldn't of happened, and I hope it won't happen again.

It's pretty nice to not carry all the guilt!

We all lose it once in a while. Including our very thin friends. We just need to acknowledge that it happened, forgive ourselves and be ready to face another day. They do say that it is not unusual for this to happen as the weight goes off. We are not only losing weight we are redefining ourselves, what we do in a day and what we present to the world! Even healthy positive changes can be scarey and we have lost who we were before we decided to through out the junk in our lives, put on the runners and reinvent ourselves.

Love yourself, both who you were and who you are becoming!

You are losing a part of you - and it is OK to take it slowly, to "live into" the changes. Your weight has served a purpose for you - this is not "good" or "bad", it just is. There may be things you haven't had to do because you were too heavy or things you didn't want to do and your weight was a great excuse/reason -

I remember when I quit smoking (several attempts before I was successful) - I realized I didn't know who I was if I didn't smoke - and that was a stumbling block for me for quite a while.

Please be kind to yourself and give yourself the space you need...

Well I started making out a list of goals and new workouts and a plan for this week...and I totally bombed. I used my Wii Friday and saw that I'd lost 1 pound and thought I was doing ok, but then....the binge started. It lasted two days and I just could NOT stop. I know this is an emotional thing.

I feel like....like I'm losing some part of me. Like someone is dying. I feel hurt and angry and I know the binge was totally self-sabotage. I did NOT weigh in Saturday. It was in the middle of all that and I knew I could NOT handle that. I did not do my yoga or resistance training yesterday either. It's the first time I've missed it since I began this....I'm considering NOT weighing in this coming Saturday either. I was thinking....If I work hard to help make up for my binge and I weigh in this week to find a gain or no loss at all it would just crush me. I would be destroyed. I am thinking it may be wise to wait 2 weeks before weighing in after this.

And...I am NOT punishing myself. There will be slip ups, and one two day binge and one skipped workout does NOT undo the previous 8 weeks! That would be silly to even try to think that.

I was watching Ruby, and I all ready know from the past that show brings up huge emotional issues for me, and I think that and other stresses led me straight to the food.

Well I don't CARE. I'm still on my plan, I'm still in smaller jeans, and I still know I CAN do this. This week I'm adding in some new workout. It's time to start breaking a sweat on top of my casual walks!
