To stop

Monday, May 07, 2012

Soemthing is on - I can´t seem to stop overeating that has been going on more or less for five days. I desperately want to stop it before I have put back what I lost but I really don´t know how to.

Nut I got my book about relapse prevention today - by Gorski that I think is really good. I´ll read it and see if it helps.
I did do my hooping today although I have to admit that it was kind of uninspired.

    It is really weird to get onto those days of overeating. I never quite figure out why I do it, and thankfully something snaps and I manage to stop. I hope that book helps.

    Keep on. You KNOW its hard. But you are worth!

    Can you contact someone who inspire you? Who can support you? Give you a mental cheer up?

    Do you have a friend or sponsor you can call? Get some "real" contact. Maybe meet them, just to get out of the house?

    I'm with the two ahead of me; what else has changed??? Over the years I've learned this doesn't happen in isolation. For one thing; I'm glad not to be on the hormone roller-coaster anymore! But the exaustion of an emotional roller coaster could do it; for me that's usually family issues that I have no control over and I know it. Food choices, for me, change with the seasons and it might be something as simple as having some grain that I don't usually eat either in bread or crackers. Yes, sugary foods too. I don't use artificial sweetners either. Stay busy, that helps. Don't give up!!

    Something you might look at is if you are eating/drinking things with Sucralose in it, it can cause you to be hungry all the time. Here is a website you might want to look at: http://www.rense.com/general65/sple
    nd.htm I stopped consuming any of the artificial sweeteners and processes sugars. I now have no more cravings for sweets & carbs and I'm not hungry all the time.

    There are a lot of factors that can cause you to overeat. Like Mountaingirl said...stress is a big one. Take a look at what is going on and see if something is triggering your overeating. One thing I do for stress relief is workout...usually with a punching bag if it is angry stress! Once I've worked out...drank a bunch of water & showered I ask myself if I'm still hungry. Between the water & the workout making me feel better I'm usually not and know that it was "stress hunger" and not normal hunger.

    Keep your chin up! Instead of focusing on stopping eating, try to figure out what is going on that caused it to start to begin with this time. For me, it is often caused by something else going on that is causing stress, etc.
