Dont want to play Yo-Yo anymore

Monday, May 30, 2011

Well, my day was going great..I was on plan, I worked out and burned 418 calories.

Then..dinner happened.

I had hot dogs (yes plural) with ketchup and MAYO (what the heck!), too much macaroni salad, and cheesecake. Then, I also had some oreos and chocolate. WHAT!

I'm ashamed of this, and irritated with myself. I'm also trying to understand why I sabatoge myself.

I didnt wait too long to eat, in fact I wasnt even really hungry. No, i'm NOT afraid to be skinny (i think thats crazy), and no I am not being too hard on myself.

I lost 6 pounds last week, the week before that was a huge gain, and the week before that was a huge loss. Can someone say YO-YO?!?! I'm tired of it, but dont know how to get my mind to break the habit. Any little food can be a trigger (macaroni salad was the case tonight) and I guess I really just need to NOT HAVE ANY of those triggers..not even on special occasion, not now.

Now, i'm laying here feeling gross. My stomach is killing me because its too full, i'm upset because I was back on track and seeing a loss on the scale will be tough if not impossible. Hate this feeling. Hate that I have a binge eating issue.

    Everyone needs a little cheat now and then or else we would go overboard so much more than you did Monday! It's ok on a holiday to have some treats, just get back on track and stay on plan the rest of the week. And WATER WATER WATER!! I was shocked that I lost 2 lbs after staying on plan and drinking tons of water for only 1 day after my vacation! It is your best friend! emoticon

    Hey, don't stress too much about it. You'll get back on track and find consistency. Better to have slow loss than the yo-yo effect, which you now know.
    I am a little grossed out about MAYO on a hot dog... LOL... I hate mayo thougH!

    Yep, it happened. I'm so sorry. Happens to the best of us. And the most of us learn the lesson you're learning ... stay away from our triggers. AND ... journal our feelings so that we get them out and don't keep eating. You're doing so well on your journey, learning so many lessons. It takes time, it takes falling down again and again. But when we fall, we learn. Some times it doesn't seem like it, but we do learn.

    Be safe ... trigger foods aren't in your home. If you have them on special occasions like holidays, they have less potential for damage. A holiday is one day, so is the special food, then get it out of your face.

    Today is a new day ... you know that because you got a new allotment of PointsPlus values. Pick yourself up, dust yourself off, look yourself in the mirror and say "I love me for being simply me!", and have an AWESOME day! You've got exactly what it takes to make today work!

    You know when people tell me, ''remember this feeling" I must have a very short memory due to like you I would do it again. For me I have to stay away from those trigger foods, but instead of beating yourself up over what you did and its is over and done with, today is a brand new day. Look at the one thing you accomplished before you binged. You worked out.

    Sweetie, today is a brand new day, you get a do over. Will it happen again? Probably. Why? Cause you are human.

    Hang in there,

    YUCK!! I am so sorry you are feeling like this.

    Drink water, drink lots and lots of water. Flush that crap out of your system.
    Remember this feeling. This sucky feeling. Because then you can hopefully stop yourself the next time the cravings come. Maybe next time you'll only take one bite less, but it'll be one less bite!
