Struggled today.... :(

Monday, December 19, 2011

Well, I guess I shouldn't really put a sad face because I got through it without a binge. But, boy, was it hard! Not sure why. I just felt hungry and felt like I wanted to binge. I started getting those thoughts of... "Just another serving of nilla wafers" or "just another hot chocolate". I kept reminding myself that I KNEW it would lead to a full blown binge if I did. Then I would ruin my weightloss challenge and I would have to report back here on sparkpeople that I failed. And I did not want to do that. So thank you for keeping me accountable. I did not make it out to exercise today, which I regret, but still feel proud that I didn't binge. Tomorrow starts a new week. I picked out my Christmas menu- healthy recipes from Hungry Girl and sparkpeople.

Well, I am writing this from my phone as I wait to pick up my boys from their mission trip, so I will keep it short.... Pardon any typos.

    You should feel VERY proud that you did not binge. You are building new habits, new pathways of response to stress and emotion. Every time you resist, you get stronger.

    Proud of you for not binging!! I know it was rough, considering your stress level, but you made it!!! I bet exercise would've helped - it always helps me.
    Hope today is a better one for you!!!

    I had this same urge today. Probably because I jumped back on the bandwagon after eating not-so-great this week...

    Good job on resisting the urge!

    You're doing great! This time of yr can be difficult without all the extra stress you're going thru.

    I am coming off a particularly bad weekend. This time of year has been really tough. But at the end of the day I still come back to what you're saying, "at least I didn't binge... before SP that would have been 3 beers/cookies/etc instead of 1... I know what I'm eating, now it's just a matter of readjustment..." Not easy when I see the scale, but still part of this honesty journey. Good luck for a good day today!
