Day 2: Out Christmas shopping and forgot to pack my "tide me over until I get home" lunch. So, not a great lunch but still in my calorie range.

I've just got to keep it together until bedtime!

Thanks for your kind words, SBATES63 but it all fell apart last night. I did eat. I did have a minor binge. So, today is Day 1 again. I'm not totally devastated, oddly. I am just picking myself up again today and carrying on.

The day I found I my Dad was sick was tough, but I didn't feel like eating much so staying binge free was easy. He's going to be fine. He's being shipped home Dec 14 so I will get to see him when I go to my Mom's for Christmas.

I had a couple of days where I ate to much, but no binge monster. It is the season for parties, meals with friends, etc and I have no plans on depriving myself. I just try to eat a sane amount, and stop there.

SBATES63, I'm glad your father is all right. I know that the stress of having a loved one so far away and ill must be overwhelming. Good for you to stay strong.

I hope the one piece of cake satisfied you!

I had a better day yesterday but I am still struggling. Today will be difficult too, I think. I didn't have a major binge yesterday, but a minor one. I would love to have no binge at all today. I will try.

I had a tough day yesterday but I did not binge. I found out my Dad was seriously ill in a hospital in Dubai, of all places. The news today is that he is going to be OK.

I had a piece of cake tonight for DHs birthday. The hard part will be not having another, but I will do it.

I was the last post, and I guess I'll be the next post too. I've had a really tough three days. I know that I am refusing to address any deeper issues behind the binging. I know I am ignoring my body and common sense. I just can't stop. I feel alone and frustrated and guilty.

I am hoping that posting that will help me get back on track a little. I'm just not sure I can deal with it all right how. Ignoring seems so much easier and obviously unhealthier.

I just feel sorry for myself and that's not acceptable. I've got to do something. I just feel like there is nothing to do.

Hi everyone,
I've been gone for a while now and my weight has clearly reflected it. I've been binging almost none-stop for weeks. Its really taken a toll on my body and how i feel about myself.

Starting again with Day 1. Going to see how far I can go.

Welcome Molly. You've come to the right place. I also used to feel terrible guilt and shame after binging in the car. I used to say to myself " How weak are you that you cannot even make it home with...(fill in the blank). I'd have to lock it in the trunk in order to at least make it home. Funny thing is I don't allow other people to eat in my car - you know, crumbs and spills, etc.

I thought I'd feel too ashamed to reveal my shortcomings to anyone, let alone strangers online. But I came to realize that we are all here to help each other overcome our common problems, not to judge. That was very freeing and helped me focus on solutions instead of the problem. I've also learned that if I distract myself when the craving or urge hits, it goes away rather quickly, although it seems longer. SP is the perfect "distraction".

May I suggest that you no longer hide the evidence of your eating but put it in a prominent place where you can see it, acknowledge it and remember the circumstances leading up to it. That way you can understand the root cause, pick it apart and come up with strategies to cope better.

Victory is measured in minutes and hours, not days or months; so enjoy all your small victories - they do count.

Good evening everyone. I am new to the group and looking forward to making progress by taking the first step in walking out from behind closet door.

When I binge I do it alone. I hide the wrappers and containers. I go to McDonald's. I order an extra sandwich or fries and eat it on the way home then eat the meal without letting anyone know I have already eaten. I feed the monster and it quiets the shame at the time.

I binged today. I am going to try to start a streak and start tomorrow.

When I am going to binge I will come here.

JMONEY, like you said and I agree that coming here will help to keep us accountable. I am looking forward to learning more from this team.

SBATES, it is funny how those thoughts control us. I read your post abou the cake. Good job talking yourself down. :-)

ERNO, I say we just say "NO" to McDonalds. How's the cooking going?

KICKINGIT, hanging in there. Hope you finish the month strong. How do you manage to not obsess?

Welcome Sue (GRAYCATBIRD).

Hi Jacquie. Happy to be here. Thank you.

Have a mindful day.

Trying,
Molly

Hi, everyone! Just joined this team a few days ago and thought I'd check in here. I'm trying to log my food and the circumstances/feelings when I eat, so I can identify the triggers for my binges. That's just the first step of the program I'm trying to follow, and it feels like a lot!

I've realized I can't eat nearly as many meals at my parents' house for the time being, because the stress combined with all the trigger foods they have everywhere make it so hard for me to control my eating. So that's progress.

Have a great day, everyone!

Sue

Had 2 good days in a row. Seems the less I obsess about binging the better control I have.

It's like you said, SBATES63, those nutty thoughts that pop into the head sometimes and threaten to over turn the cart.

Would like to end this month on a strong note.

Hang in there everyone!

SBATES63 - Thank you so much for the support and encouragement! I really hope I can get this problem under control! I feel this group will really help me to deal with the problems that I face daily! Yesterday was an ok day... I had a few Halloween cookies and some candy corn mix... but based on my other binge days it was wonderful! Today I feel amazing and have no cravings for any bad food - crazy what a good workout can do for you when you make yourself get out of bed to go to the gym :) I will try my best to post everyday as it will help to keep me accountable for the things that I have let slip in my life and I love hearing from everyone else as well so I am excited to read other members posts! Lets keep it up team!

I had one of those moments today that reminded me how fragile my binge free streak is, and how much recovering I have to do. We get cake at work for staff birthdays, and today was one such day. It was a light cake with a cream filling and fruit on top, so not too bad as far as cakes go. I had 1/12th of an 8 inch cake and enjoyed it slowly as I have been trying to do. All of a sudden, the sick thinking came flooding back. In my mind, I was swapping out other foods in my plan to make up for the calories I had eaten, and feeling defeated. I managed to recognize this thinking, and talked myself into the realization that normal people have a piece of cake once in a while without their world falling apart. It's funny how those things come right back. I haven't had a drink of alcohol in over 5 years but my brain still goes to all those places now and then. emoticon

Haven't posted for a few days. It's been a mixed review. Some days OK and others not so much. But no major binges. Mostly the problem comes when I stay up late, so I've been trying to keep a regular bedtime. At least I've been staying away from the Halloween candy.

Sbate, eating small portions and ignoring that desire to eat more is such an important skill! You are doing it! Great to hear.

I made it through another day binge free. Yesterday was easy. And I had another piece of my apple cake (Barbi sized) with a couple of tablespoons of vanilla ice cream. It was only a few tiny bites, but I really enjoyed it and didn't feel the NEED for any more. OK, maybe for an instant, but that's all. I won't binge, just for today.

JMOENY07-You took the biggest step by admitting you have a problem with binging and seeking out this team. I suggest you join the 21 Day Binge Free streak. It helps somehow to feel accountable to others. Also, this thread is great. People here actually care about your triumps and not so good times too and cheer you on. Start now and don't get discouraged if you have a bad day. We all do. Look forward to hearing from you often.

Just found this page and I am so thankful to know that there are others who share my struggle! Today and yesterday were bad days! It seems like I do fine on the weekends and then Saturday, Sunday, and sometimes Monday just hit me like a ton of bricks and all I do is eat... and its always unhealthy things that I eat... I need to get over this attachment I have to food! It doesn't even feel good to eat but yet I keep doing it! Any tips you would like to offer would be amazing! Starting right now.. well actually starting tomorrow I am going to start a new path free of binge eating!

Chocolate spread out today. Okay with me. Yesterday was a good day. Basically two meals with a bit of snacking. Fine for the weekend because I can eat my breakfast so much later. Neither meal was huge and I was satisfied. emoticon

I was so annoyed with students today. Man, they were squirrely! But I realize now I was taking it all too seriously. However, I didn't even want to eat. OUr dept. had a luncheon with croissant sandwiches. Half of a hefty one and some salad were enough until dinner tonight, and I took one big chocolate chip cookie which I'll have some time this weekend. A great day. emoticon

Stress and anxiety is a huge trigger for me. I think I've learned to deal with it better (I didn't SP stress reduction challenge and downloaded some relaxation mp3s off the internet) but I still default to food. I have to remind myself that I doesn't help and I'm not really hungry. Best, E

hope you made it, Courageg.

I had a good day. Esp. good dinner because I love the pork chile verde from Costco. It's only about 25% fat and the verde sauce is scrumptious! had it on high fiber tortilla with veggies plus pear and really wonderful plum. Done for the day. Absolutely no inkling of an urge to eat. And don't want to be sorry later. emoticon

I haven't been able to post for a while, but I'm on Day 4 and I feel a bit uneasy. I am stressed about work, etc. and usually that makes food seem like the answer. I know it's not, but...

Okay, just hold on until bed.

OOLALA-you only have to do it one day at a time, one hour at a time. A couple of times I have told myself that if I need to eat in, say, 1/2 and hour, then I will. Then I don't and delay it again and before you know it the day is gone and accomplished binge free.

Stay away from the candy isles. that's all I can offer. I don't have a sweet tooth, I'm more of a carb person.

Have been doing ok. Nothing I would consider a 'binge' per say. Just working on getting my calories down.

I am having a bit of a tough day today because I am particularily hungry for some reason. Thoughts of binging keep entering my mind. I don't binge except at night so right now I'm OK. I keep reminding myself that I just can't binge. It's not an option. I think I will steam clean my living and dining room tonight instead. I know how to have fun.

Considered binging last night. I was really, really upset and my first thought was to turn to food. I sat back for a minute and analyzed the emotions and realized eating wasn't going to make me feel better. In fact, it was going to make me feel worse. Still feeling down in the dumps today, but am resisting the urge to medicate with food.

I made it through Day 5 with no issues. On the weekend, I came to a realization that has become my mantra. I remind myself several times a day that not binging is not a means to an end (losing weight) but is the end in itself. It seems to be working.

I've noticed a very strong correlation between staying up late and binging. So I've joined the Official Getting Better Sleep Challenge which runs for 4 weeks.

If I can establish a bedtime routine and get to bed on time I may be able to lick this binging thing. And it will be like killing 2 birds with 1 stone.

I am excited. It is nearly bedtime, certainly past the danger time. I had a full, tiring and somewhat stressful day and I didn't even hardly think about binging. The only time I actually thought about binging was when I was eating my dinner. Weird. Hubby and I spent the afternoon installing our new over the range microwave and the darned thing doesn't work! Oh well. I made it through that.

Great job, Kickingit! Those were good strategies; you may need others, but I affirm for you that they will come to you when needed. The great thing is that when we do manage to change for a time, the power of habit can step in to help us, at least for awhile. Every round of victories brings us closer to a BF life.
As Sbates said, it's going to take time. But the tailspins do get shorter and the periods of victory do get longer, if we don't get sidetracked when we fall. This has been my best year ever, being BF between 75% and 80% of the time. It feels good! Of course, I want to keep decreasing the episodes, and I am. I'm just saying that it can be motivating even if we aren't perfect.

Judith Beck said the biggest difference between permanent weight losers and those who are not is that the permanent ones picked up after "failures," and got back into their routine. I am so grateful that I am not trying to go back to some strict diet. I think that's the second reason for failure; they're trying to do something that doesn't fit for them. I have decreased a lot of junky food from my diet, but not totally, and not because a diet said I have to, though being on diets at times helped me figure out satisfying, delicious meals.

Okay, enough of my sermonizing! I'm going to be the one needing the bolstering some day for sure. But I had a BF work week, and I'm celebrating emotionally! emoticon

Yesterday was great. On day 4 now. I am holding on to how good it feels not to be binging. I feel strong and determined. I really need a few days under me with success otherwise a bad day might send me into another tailspin. But I am aware of this, and for me the awareness of all the aspects of this disorder are half the battle. I have to remember that I have been doing this for 30 years. There is a saying about recovery that says "if it took you 30 years to walk into the woods, don't expect to walk out in a week.".

Thanks for the good vibes ladies. Today was a good day and it wasn't as hard as I thought it would be. Funny how one day is "normal" and the next day is like an addict looking for a fix.
When I thought about sweets I sipped water instead and I went to bed early last night so no opportunity for binging. Here's hoping I've found a winning strategy along with SP, of course.

So glad to hear it,SBATE! Hang on to this memory. You may need it. Hardly anyone goes from total bingeing to zero, but these past two days can become the norm. We must hold a vision of leaving this behavior behind, though it may take longer than we want. But what other choice do we have?

I am trying to get my thought ready for the weekend. I often plan, but don't follow through. I'm often mystified why I can abstain sometimes and not others. but I'm more aware of it now.

Now that I'm thinking about it, I'm going to see if there is a thread specifically for weekend support. If there isn't one, I'll start it. emoticon

I can't believe I have gone 2 days in a row binge free. And I hardly even noticed. Other times I was binge free, each day seemed like a gargantuan accomplishment. These last 2 days seemed normal. Maybe because I heeded advice and stopped worrying about losing weight. I am just trying to eat healthy and not gain any more weight right now. Tonight I am going to a friends for dinner and hot tubbing so won't really be in a position to binge. I am so glad I got back on this team. Took awhile to admit total defeat, but something is happening here.

I'm sending 'em. I know there were many times I could not IMAGINE being able to go an evening without eating eating eating all junk junk junk. And yet, it's very rare for me now. It's hardly ever an issue. EVen at the beginning, I would marvel at that. I know I spent some time each night really concentrating on how full I felt. I also made sure I had really delicious meals, like two slices of pizza with salad, or a big hunk of lasagna with a side of broccoli. I ate slowly and revelled in the food. Then I washed the dishes quick and did something different from what I would normally do for about 15 minutes. This seemed to break the spell. But I don't know what will work for you. I just affirm that you will be healed of this. emoticon

Congrats SLENDERELLA and OOLALA on your extended streak of no- binging. Unfortunately I cannot claim the same. I've been staying up late and eating always goes along with that. Please send some good vibes my way. I'm about ready to staple my lips shut!

Day 3 -- good day yesterday with a great work out. I am planning for success today too. I have parent-teacher interviews which are remarkably stressful for teachers (and parents, I assume) but I have packed both lunch and supper and am planning on going to the gym during our break to relieve the stress a little. Wish me luck!

I so agree, it's wise not to dwell. I am betting that the longer I stay food-sober, the easier it will get because I will find different, healthy foods that I can enjoy
just as much.
Your dinner sounds delicious, bon appetit !!

So good to hear from you, Slenderella! Congrats on so many days in a row. Thank you for admitting that you miss the ritual. I am so much better this year than I have been in a long time, yet even now, when I think of never again eating half a bag of Dove milk chocolates or a lot of cake with icing, I actually get a shudder of fear and sadness. I know I am down to the foundation with this, though, and it feels good. I know I cannot dwell too much on the pleasurable side of that kind of eating, but I also don't want to pretend that those feelings aren't there. Thankfully, this year I have had so many wonderful meals without overeating that those memories help balance the other ones.

Speaking of which, the weather is slightly overcast here, and I am waiting for a chicken breast and sweet potato to roast for my dinner. They smell so good! Okay, off to cook some green beans and asparagus. A nice fall meal. emoticon

Today is day 19 for me. I don't know if I have ever gone this long without bingeing. I miss the food, quite honestly. I don't feel compelled to eat it, but I miss the ritual of thinking about the binge, getting the binge food, and then eating.
Of course the upside is that I am feeling very strong and confident these days.
I am not ashamed and disappointed in myself. When I look in the mirror I'm not
instantly disgusted...I'm realizing that I am a work in progress.
So far, so good.

Kudos to you COURAGEG for deciding to be honest with yourself. It does no good to live in a fantasy world.

I think you should cut yourself some slack since it was a holiday. Now you can concentrate on getting back on track. Get all the goodies out of the house so you won't be tempted.

My Thanksgiving is coming up next month and just the though of all that pumpkin pie is making me weak in the knees. LOL

I'm really struggling. I had no problem staying on track on Sunday for our Thanksgiving dinner, but all heck broke loose on Monday (the actual holiday from work). I feel like I am reacting and not acting. I'm really frustrated and was shocked by the scale this morning. I couldn't even track the weight on SP because I didn't want it to be the reality. I am going to put it on now, though. I need to keep honest and the minute I start not recording or fudging the records, the minute SP becomes useless.

So... day 1.

The need to binge seems to be passing. What seems to be working is just not stressing over it. I was really busy this past weekend too and that helped. I have a basis now to work from, and it feels great to be back under control.

Because of several factors, I went 7 hours between lunch and dinner yesterday. it felt great to get so definitively hungry. I still took my time eating and my dinner tasted even better than usual. I was content the rest of the night. Looking forward to a sane eating day. emoticon

No binge yesterday. Working on day 2. Trying to be mindful of my eating and not let myself get overly hungry. Going to help my dad paint when I finish work today, which should keep me busy. If I'm busy, I don't binge. I guess that means I need more hobbies :)

Ate a big lunch yesterday and was not really hungry all the rest of the day. Had dinner (and dessert, too) but not a huge amount. I did not binge. I am going to try that again today, but with a healthier lunch this time. We happened to be out yesterday and I had a chicken wrap and fries. Delicious but deadly.

You are right,OOLALA, everyone must find what works for them. I find if I go too long without eating and get too hungry, I'll tear into just about anything while preparing something healthy, and that usually sets off a binge. I try to eat every 3-4 hrs (a balanced meal or snack which has a fair amt of fiber)
I tend to be much better at home where I have access to foods which help me when cravings hit - crunchy veggies or hot tea. My problem comes mainly when I am out.

Yesterday I blew it at a meeting where free pizza was offered and they were "begging" people to eat. So I did :-(

So I'm back to Day 1 and so far, so good.

Tough place to be, Sbates. Whenever I was in the middle of one of those phases in the past, it felt like it would last forever. I have gotten to the point where I can ride the wave better and not get so freaked out. I believe that helps it pass sooner. I also believe it helps me choose sooner to grit my teeth and wait to get hungry to eat. If I can do that 2 times in a day (and it usually means having 5+ hours between eating events), I usually feel I can continue to right myself. I don't find that I eat more because I've waited. For me, there is a magic in getting hungry.

I should also say that I do not eat sweets on weekdays. I know many feel they cannot or do not want to do this, but I feel it has been integral in subduing the urges for sweets. I know for me it is much harder to stop at enough when it comes to sweets. I find it is not even an issue on no sweet days. Do I sometimes eat too much of sweets on teh weekends? Yes. But I used to eat too much of sweets every day of the week. My life is infinitely better now.

No matter what life event is prompting the urge to overeat, the mechanism is the same. Overeating reinforces the cycle of stimulus-response. Not overeating can sometimes cause the urges to become stronger for a period of time as they reach a peak. Then they reduce. Overeating after a period of control will often make them spike in intensity again. Refraining is the strongest, fastest medicine. I'm not advocating starving. I am advocating waiting as long as you can to eat, or until you feel very hungry, whichever come first. Sometimes if I've binged in the day, even if I'm not hungry 6 hours later, I'll go ahead and have something light. Not just an apple, but something like chicken broth with vegetables and a little meat. I usually avoid starches then, not as punishment, but because my bingeing is usually on sweets/starches and I just feel I need balance. But if I've binged later in the day, and I'm not hungry before bedtime, I;ll just go to bed and try to start fresh the next day. I refuse to let thoughts of "depriviation" rule me. I am not deprived when I don't eat without hunger.

I've gone on a long time, and I know in the end you'll find what works or you will just come out of this phase. Do give up self-recrimination, if you're feeling it, but don't give up faith that you are moving in the right direction. emoticon

I haven't been out of control, wild binging lately and I guess that's a start. I have been binging though. I can't seem to find the willpower lately to just say no! I don't have the uncontrollable urge to eat, but I eat anyways. I have to do some sould searching today and start again. I don't like feeling like this.

Don't know if you were asking for suggestions, but I find adding a tablespoon of chopped nuts to a meal makes a big difference in how satisfied I feel hours later. No matter what, hang in there. Your body will likely adjust. emoticon

This day is looking good for eating. I got invited to a friend's for dinner. They tend not to have much junk around, so I'm not worried and I am not attracted at all today to sweets. After our heat wave a little over a week ago, we are having cold (for SoCal), wet weather now. Made one pot of chicken stock in the pressure cooker for lunch and have another crock pot still going from having so many bones left over from the chickens at my birthday party. Yippee! Now I can make Greek, Mexican, Italian, or Indian soup, depending on my mood. Hope everyone finishes out the day sanely. emoticon

Day 2 another good day; even resisted going back for another slice of pizza. Sipped water instead until the urge passed. Sipping water or other fluid (as long as it is not too sweet) usually works.

I love Farmer's Markets too. I found different flavored fruit ciders on my last trip. They're delicious but very sweet so I mix them half & half with sparkling water.

Yesterday I attended a conference where they had tables full of pastries (muffins, cookies, danish, brownies ) and I definitely over did it. At least I didn't take home any leftovers.

So I am starting over with Day 1. Feel good so far. Am drinking plenty of water.

Don't you love this cool Autumn weather!

BTW I chose the name because I thought it was time to kick my "you know what" into gear and get serious with living a healthy lifestyle.

Keep it going ladies!

Ohlala and Kickinit (I LOVE both your names, btw): Congrats on staying strong. Both of you are such inspirations to me -- I see your struggles and your successes and I feel so supported. Thank you.

Day 6 and feeling pretty strong still. Just need to keep busy! Farmer's market today to replenish the veggies -- when fresh and yummy, I actually only want the veggies and I'm pretty sure binging on green beans is impossible!

Congrats, Courageg and Kickingit! I'm finished with day 5. I'm feeling strong, but that's no guarantee! Let's have a good weekend. emoticon

I've actually gone 7 days without binging. WooHoo! I've been so preoccupied lately with other things that I did not have time to worry about binging or cravings.
Before when I was worrying whether I could keep away from the (fill in the blank) it seemed like a tremendous struggle. I've also been going to bed on time so I'm not waiting around at night waiting for the "cravings" to pounce.

Hang in there everyone. We have a new month to start fresh.

Another good day. Had a guest for lunch, which was fun. I fed him exactly as I feed myself, and he seemed to like it. Indian eggplant, tomato, and onion dish, chopped fresh veggies with diced 30% fat sausage, and some vegan Cesar dressing, and sliced pear with a bit of cottage cheese and walnuts. It was pretty darn good, if I say so myself. I had to usher so I ended up getting a hamburger out for dinner. It was delicious and enough. It's very much a part of my plan to combat bingeing to not freak out when situations make it so that I can't have the perfect meal. Thin people are able to negotiate their way through this world of food. I want to be one of them. emoticon
