I felt a binge coming on....

Saturday, January 02, 2010





Boy, the last 2 hours I felt edgy and nervous wanting to just binge on stuff. I have not reason, no extra stress, no boredom just this nervous jumpy feeling and I wanted to grab stuff and eat.
I really think it is related to the chocolate donuts that I bought for the rest of the family yesterday. You know the Hostess kind that are mini sized? I really like them when they are super fresh.
My 18 yr old asked me if I wanted some when he was eating them... I asked him the calorie count, serving size, etc...
1 serving is 4 donuts
270 calories
17 g fat
29 g carb
16 g sugar
2 protein

I said there not worth it.... do you know what I can eat for 270 calories? I can eat a whole meal practically!

Guess what, I ate a banana and still felt the munchies so I ate a 1/2 cup fiber one cereal and 1/2 cup 1% milk.

I am through it now... and I made good choices, I think...
All for 208 calories. so yay me! ( and 7 g protein and 3 g of fat)

I am having baked chicken breast for dinner with a romaine salad on the side... so
"back on track".

What do you guys do when this hits you... the munchies, the wanting to binge feeling?

The old me ate donuts! LOL

    Whoo-hoo! great job resisting temptation!

    I don't bring anything tempting into the house. I also don't allow my self to fall into the "just one bite" trap. It has worked amazingly well. I figure if I'm not hungry enough to eat an apple, I'm not really hungry.

    Ok girl, you get the sugar free jello and you make yourself tons of little half cup containers, and you have cool whip free on hand, and believe me, it is yummy and settles the craving. Also drink a full glass of water first when you are craving something. Sometimes your cravings can be your body saying "more water please". So try the jello, its amazing. Cherry is my favorite.

    I got rid of all my 'trigger' foods yesterday. I had to. Two of my daughters and their families came over for dinner and I sent everything home with them. You ended up making good choices. It will get easier with each passing day. Good luck!

    I am SO PROUD Of you, You CHOSE a response instead of just reacting w/out thought or consciousness as I HAVE DONE too many times!

    What do I think when these cravings hit me? HOPEFULLY I 'THINK" at all! It is when I just go into a trance as if possessed with a sugar demon that there is a lot of Hell to pay!

    Anytime I find myself pausing to think ANYTHING I am relieved bc then at least I know I have some inkling of hope to talk myself out of it and sometimes I am successful.

    I think how much easier it would be to ONLY have MY kind of healthy foods in the house that my husband and I buy for us and wonder if I will be able to ever get this weight off and keep it off WHILE my precious teens who eat a variety of things I crave are still in the house. I PRAY literally that I will be able to before then.

    I also think it's NOT Fair that there are people who seem to get NORMAL cravings and not get totally encompassed by them so it FEELS like I dont have a choice. I know I do... I'm just saying that is how it FEELS sometimes.

    I wonder if I will ever feel stronger and less tempted after numerous successes somewhat like how it got easy to NOT want to smoke some years after I quit. I hope so.

    Again.. I am VERY proud of you.
