Am I committed? Do I really want this to work?........

Saturday, August 15, 2015

Once again, I am having a heck of a time. It is mostly this "binge eating" that is causing me such grief. I was able to have a 21 Day Binge Free Streak, but shortly after that I lost it and haven't been able to get it going again.
I look at every article and book I find on "emotional eating" but I still struggle.
I have currently trying Taste for Truth by Barb Raveling, it is a 30 Day Weight Loss Bible Study. I first got a book and a phone app called I Deserve a Donut (And Other Lies That Make You Eat) and started looking at them. I found that Taste for Truth is a companion Bible study and decided to give it a try. I have just finished Day 4 and it gives me a lot to think about and I am hoping it will help me with this problem.
The summers tend to be a little more difficult for me with the kids home, but school will be starting this week and hopefully I will get back to my routines and back to losing weight and ending binges.
Yes, I REALLY DO WANT THIS TO WORK!!!! Am I committed? I am not sure..

    I'm right there with you...some days are so difficult...have a good long run without a binge and something triggers it.
    I'm sure once your routine gets back to normal everything including your eating will level out.
    Wishing you the best!

    That book sounds good, Peg. I know you can do it with God's help.
    We all can, but we have to put into action what we learn, not always
    that easy. Praying we both can. I might check out the book at the library
    this week in Pt St John, if they have it. emoticon

    Sounds like you know what to do. You just need to find a way to make it stick. Maybe try making small changes at a time. That's what usually works for me. Good luck!

    I hear you. In 2013, I lost a little over 20 pounds with the help of Spark People. One negative thought knocked on my door and I opened. That was the beginning of my undoing. Long story short, I came back a few months ago and wanted to be healthy again. I also needed to lose weight. But I didn't have the motivation or the willingness to put in the work. I knew that my brain was refusing for a reason(s). So I worked on my thoughts before I can make a "real" commitment. I am not there 100% yet. But I am at 80-85% which is a lot better than when I started.

    Hang in there and your epiphany will come. Just never give up on you! emoticon
