I admit that I have a problem with food. I am addicted to sugar. I am an emotional/binge eater...not a good combination. I have an unhealthy relationship with food, yet I have already taken action to start my journey to a better self. I have admitted the problem and started to see a Dr. about it. Trying to keep a journal and really enjoy when I allow myself a treat helps my binges.

Have watched Dr Oz a couple of times and can't decide if I like him or his show!? But no matter, this is a good sounding challenge.

I admit that my eating/body image/thinking/binge-purge stuff has caused me no end of misery over the years with the past year being awful...until finding SP and getting on a really positive track.

I commit to keep going. As I approach my goal weight I commit to figuring out how to maintain and to continue not to flip out when I think I've eaten too much at any given time.

I commit to non-binge eating, which helps eliminate that urge to purge....

UGH this is so HARD

-I admit that I'm a binge eater and that I purge. I have done it for 15 years, since the birth of my first child. I look in the mirror at my body and pick it apart several times a day

-I admit that I think of food every moment that I am awake, the flavors, textures, when I can do it.

-I admit that I am a push over with very few boundries.

-I admit that I am a VERY good secret keeper.

-I commit to trying to stop the binging and when I do I will NOT purge and work through the guilt and shame instead of puking. And to love my body at every size along this journey.

-I commit to using food as nourishment for my body.

-I commit to saying NO, I WILL NOT, I CAN NOT, AND I DON'T WANT TO.

-I commit to being a good member of this team and share my highs and lows and feel free to say what I have to and not keep it inside.

I have found my voice again - that is just expressing myself when being 'put down'. I have interrupted the comment with ' stop being so rude' or 'learn how to respect others'. there is no fear- not like before. it is true that one has to be completely FED UP and reach the utmost end of your endurance. the quote by Emerson - 'when changes are made, new worlds emerge' is very true. I am making inroads to meet the goals i have set for myself. in this economy finding a job or part time jobs is quite difficult, but i am networking. i am also making time to re connect with old friends- taking time away - i am becoming more myself - thank you God. it is a gift to express myself here with support from you guys. i feel the love! thanks sparkers BB emoticon

Gr8 strategies!

Using a reward & positive acknowledgement system has helped me tremendously. i haven't tried a weekly reward, but love the idea. So far, I've been doing a verbal "woohoo" at the moment when I make it on a goal & i like to put a pretty sticker on the calendar for each day too. It's a nice visual when they add up :)

I have two admit/commits
1. I admit that I am a food and body perfectionist and when I screw up I throw in the towel. I commit to trying to compromise. It is okay to skip a workout or have dessert
2. I admit that I am an emotional eater. I commit to trying everyday to combat this problem. I am currently trying a reward system. If I can hold out on binging then I will reward myself with something like a movie or an extra treat at the end of the week/day.

I admit ___________.

I commit to myself that I will ___________.

emoticon today's Dr. Oz show featured a woman who struggles with bingeing and then purging, known as bulimia. 2 guest experts talked with her on the show and there were 2 things that struck me.

1) sometimes the problem is so serious and complex that it can be very difficult to fix alone by ourself, so Professional counseling can really help a person go through the process of overcoming the problem and recover. [comment, This would be true probably for anyone struggling with any eating disorder symptoms.]

2) they also said it is essential to Admit to a problem and Commit to fix it. Realizing we have a problem is a gr8 first step and starting point :)
