Lets help each other! What to do after a binge?!?!?!?
Friday, November 05, 2010
I know we all know what to do to make all this work. We all know to exercise, eat more fruits and veggies, watch our portions. Yes those are the logical things, but what do you do when logic is out the door? I have struggled with a food addiction for over 20 years. And I will continue to struggle with it for the rest of my life. Most days I win the battle, but some days (like today) I loose and I loose big time. You know the days I am talking about, something triggers, something snaps and you have no control. Well today was that day, I wont go into all of the details, lets just say it was bad, really really bad!! Now what? Whats next after this binge, whats next after this epic failure, this horrible relapse? In the past I was so used to having these episodes, they would just continue for weeks, months and sometimes years. But after lots of learning and coping I have gotten much better about learning from them and making it much longer in between. I try being really strict afterwards, but the guilt is really hard to deal with. I will exercise extra over the next week, I will watch my carbs and try clean eating as much as possible. But what else is there, what else should I do?
What do you do when you go off the deep end? What coping do you have to deal with these kind of things??? Thank you for any and all help you can give me.
