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!
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!
