2 Weeks Binge Free and Down 6.2 lbs!
Tuesday, March 16, 2021
I am feeling better mood-wise...the depression is lifting. My daughter had us run an errand for her yesterday and I felt better during and after that. Maybe I just needed to "get out." I'm glad I didn't eat my way out of the depression like I usually do. I'm learning.
Today marks 2 weeks of being binge-free. I'm down 6.2 lbs. I've been seeing little losses daily on most days. There were a few days with slight up-ticks or no loss. I am weighing in daily but not focusing on the weight loss as much as focusing on sticking to 3 meals a day and having no snacks...which keeps me from binge eating.
I know binge eating is where my weight has come from. I've never been a big eater with my meals. They are reasonable even when I am not counting calories. My problems come in-between meals when I eat because... I am bored, I am upset, I am happy, I am ... a lot of things. I would eat sweets or sweets/salty/sweets/salty... etc. THAT is where the problem lies for me. So I knew if I wanted to lose weight and STOP gaining weight, I would have to stop that habit/reaction. Since my binges always started out as an "innocent" snack, I decided that stopping that innocent snack would be the best way to stop the surprise binge. So that's what I've done and what I am continuing to focus on. It's working!
Hope you all have a great Tuesday! Keep up the good work! Thanks for the encouragement...really...thank you! Spark on!
