Rough day today

Thursday, March 25, 2010

This was one of those days I would binge over in the old days. Bags of candy, donuts, and whatever I could eat to try to numb myself, making me sicker and feeling more down and sluggish than ever. I couldn't do that to myself today. I DID eat too much, and that's not good. But I chose to eat strawberries, salad, yogurt and other things that my body can actually use. That's the difference between the old days and now. I din't have the heart to dump toxic food into my body just because I had a rotten day. How cruel, and hurtful to me. Trying to make better choices.

    Thank you for reminding me of exactly how important our individual lives are. Very often I've mistreated myself with junk foods and binge eating. I've disappointed myself many times after having a beautiful day with eating the right foods, then only to come home in the evening and blow a whole day's effort by eating practically all night long.
    Of course I too became sluggish and remorseful. But seemed to repeat this pattern practically everyday.
    Thank God I am learning how to love and appreciate me for simply being me. Now I can handle myself around food much better, and do not eat myself into a stupor when I am stressed out about something.
    It seems that you and I have lots in common. I will be cheering for you to be successful in your weight loss journey. emoticon

    GREAT JOB!!! Thats the problem I've found in binges - they always make me feel worse AFTER it's great when we can say no to the garbage and eat better! It's better to over indulge on healthy stuff then junk!! FANTASTIC WORK!!!!

    It sounds to me like you made not just "better" choices but "excellent" choices! We all have days that would normally drive us to the nearest take-out place where we would "eat" our troubles away.....or so we thought....we know so much better now!

    Congratulations on being kind to yourself.....I'm proud of you!
