Taking Control

Saturday, January 02, 2010

I've been an active member of SparkPeople for a long time and I've lived through my weight bouncing up and down the entire time. My biggest downfall is binge eating. I can be the best little tracker for a few days, and then when I start becoming successful I start binge eating. This cycle goes round and round - a few great days, quite a few bad. My number one goal for this year is going to be to get a handle on this problem of mine. I am determined to control my life and make an extreme effort to stop my binge eating. With that being said, I have currently gone 5 days without binge eating. It may not seem like much, but for me this is huge!

I was a little saddened when I weighed in at my Weight Watcher's meeting this morning at 211.8, but another goal I have is to not have another gain at a weigh-in. Lofty goals for this year, but I am bound and determined to take back control.

I love the help and encouragement I receive from all my great Spark Friends! With the continued support and my own determination I know I am going to be successful!

I've never been much of a blogger, but in order to help achieve my goal of controlling my binge-eating another effort I will try to incorporate is a daily blog.

I am going to keep the streak alive - 5 days and counting!!

    Oh Bobbi...I too have issues with this...I can control it for long periods of time, but than I just go for it, and Unfortunately I have gone for it just a little to much this holiday season! I also find that when I get off track, and am trying to set goals for get back on track that I will go through a binge before I can totally commit....We can do this! We will get through 2010 meeting our goals Head on!! emoticon emoticon

    Congratulations on making it through 5 days! I hope you find a way to gain control of your binge eating. I have the same problem. The longer I don't binge the easier it gets. I'm feeling more secure all the time. However I try really hard to limit situations that lead to binging. Most of all I keep trigger foods out of the house. This in itself cuts down greatly on binges for me.

    I wish you the best of luck!

    congrats on your 5 day streak!!

    speaking from personal experience, i've learned that depriving myself of foods i want, always led right back to cravings and then the ultimate binge.

    i then decided to try moderation and allow myself a few indulgences of what i want at 1-2 servings and really enjoy them. it's helped immensely!!!

    i won't lie...it takes control to stop after 1-2 servings in the beginning, but once your mind knows that you can have these things daily...it gets easier and the cravings go away and no more bingeing. all the best to you in how you approach this matter.

    here's to a great year and a new and fit you. may you have what you need and receive what you want.
