60 lbs: outta here!

Sunday, November 22, 2009

switched my weigh-in to sundays, and i haven't weighed in for a couple of weeks due to those darn binge episodes. imagine my surprise to discover that i have dropped below the 130 lbs mark! just barely, that is, but i'm at 129.4 lbs which offically means i have lost (at least) 60 pounds!

i cannot quite believe it and am beyond psyched about this! emoticon

i'm also doing really well in terms of food and exercise. this is my 4th binge-free day and i'm feeling great. i'm back on a regular workout schedule and have been taking advantage of the past few warm(ish), sunny days here in Chicago to opt for outdoor exercise. i've decided that i really need to spend as much time as i can in the sun (when the sun is out!), as a method of keeping ahead of the "winter depression" that i always seem to struggle with. so yesterday and today i went on long "power walks" with jogging intervals at the park which is practically next door to my apartment building (which has a great 3/5 mile jogging trail). i'm hoping that i can fit in another before the cold and rain start again!

a few other things that have helped me stay away from the "binge monster" are reading up a lot about binge eating and food/carb addiction, making lists of things to do when i have the urge to gorge myself, and journalling. i may post about some of these things in more detail at a later time.

until then, be well!

    Congrats! I am so proud of you:) What have you been reading about binge eating? I would be curious to do some reading about it, but I haven't found many resources specific to binging.

    I've lost 62 lbs myself. It's great! And, I've been binge free now for over 12 months. It's doable and it takes determination and commitment.

    Stay strong during Thanksgiving!
