i binged can i do that to myself....all was going well- was hungry when got home from ouber stressful day, had sensible snack (still had 20points left- out of 34!!) then ate dinner still had like 7 left and then I just ate, and ate and ate...I mean most thing were low points but WHAT WAS I THINKING (well I wasn't, I guess cuz i'm soooo mad at myself now) I made myself sit down after I was thinking rationally and write it all down (using wrappers as evidence) and now I'm at this fattie either needs to run a marathon tonight or I'm in debt of points...
grrr.. anyways I may take the dog for a walk- its the least I could do, my tummy feels icky and I feel like I may vomit... walking the dog would help, I gotta go...

hope you all are having a better day then me...

Awe dear. It's tough coming back from Christmas and getting back on track. Tomorrow's a new day! I've done it before too. Don't let it get you down! your pictures on the side of your new haircut and your glasses. Very nice!

Linda said...

Thankyou very much for the Birthday Wishes (((HUGS)))

We all have days like your day but you have it sussed because you added up your spent points AND you took the dog out so, WELL DONE!! That is so much better than sitting and thinking you had blown it and might as well eat more and do less and basically making it worse by not doing any of the POSITIVE things you have done but nope you sorted it....FANTASTIC!!

(((HUG))) for being so positive xx

I also think you handled it well. We have to make contingency plans for these unfortunate lapses, and the best way to start is to assess the damage and then take appropriate action.

Isn't it awful how bad one feels after a binge? Physically and emotionally... It's just not worth it!

At least we're learning a better way...

Have you used all your flex? Even if you have, this is just a minor setback. You did a great thing by writing it all down though, that's good. It takes a long time to break bingeing habits. Don't beat yourself up too much over it, just take it & learn from it.

I think you handled this VERY well. You counted it up, acknowledged it, and then went for a walk. I think that is fantastic!

It IS hard after the holidays...I have got to lay off the cookies at night myself. Night eating is a big problem for me too, I get all relaxed and when I don't plan everything out - cookies happen.

Have a great day!

BREATHHHHHHHHHHHH Ok you did it. You cant take it back and stressing over it wont make it better it will send you in the wrong direction. YOU ARE IN CONTROL even if it doesnt seem like. From this minute on you recognize and move forward. Being accountable is half the battle and you did it. We get a fresh start every time a new minute starts. Here is your new minute so start.

You are doing GREAT just keep at it!! Chin up foot forward!

Getting healthy is not about punishment. Its about moderation!

Awww... hang in there. It happens to all of us. This is just a tiny bump in the road. :)

Something else you might do is write down how you were feeling when the over-eating occurred (stressed, sad, angry, bored). I have been trying to track my emotional eating and realized (following the pattern of grazing) that I get bored around 2:00 pm and start munching until dinner.

Linds said...

Aww sorry to hear you had a shitty day, and then over snacked! At least you were accountable for it, and logged it all down, and then went for a walk. There is a positive here!

Try not to take it too hard, and just go forward from there!

Heather said...

sorry to hear about your slipup..but dont be so hard on yourself...we all make mistakes! tomorrow is a new day, a fresh start, so start it the best that you can and continue on through the day and just take it one day at a time. soon you will be back on track.

Michelle said...

Yeah...had one of those days today too. My goal, in these instances, is to work that much harder tomorrow (especially the exercising). Hope things are better!

Fat Prison- seen on a couple different websites-

I want to tell you about a very unusual sort of prison. It's called Fat Prison. Why is it so unusual? Because it's completely voluntary.
No one sends us to Fat Prison, we send ourselves!

What's it like to be a fat prisoner? The rules are very strict. To begin with, each prisoner must wear regulation uniform. This consists of a baggy skirt or elasticated pants. Most prisoners pretend they don't mind walking around in this shapeless uniform, but secretly they hate it. They'd much rather walk down the street in a slim pair of jeans.
Exercise is strictly controlled Swimming or playing with children is forbidden. And no prisoner may walk more than a few yards at a time. The penalties for breaking this rule include sweating, shortness of breath, soreness and fatigue. After a few years without any sort of proper exercise, prisoners become so soft that the very idea of movement terrifies them. If you don't believe me, go up to a fat prisoner and suggest a nice long walk in the fresh air!
Everyday life The main feature of everyday life inside Fat Prison is tiredness. Prisoners carry lots of extra weight around on their bodies, so not surprisingly they suffer from chronic fatigue. Result? After doing their daily chores, most of them slump down exhausted in front of the TV.
Even when they allow themselves a night out, many prisoners find it difficult to enjoy themselves. They feel awkward about their shape so instead of mixing with other people they tend to sit in the corner with other fat prisoners.
Prison Mentality After many years of locking themselves away inside their Fat Prison, many prisoners develop a prison mentality. They lose confidence in themselves and their ability to "go straight". They look at slim people and think: "I'm never going to be like them!" They think they are doomed to stay in Fat Prison, forever. Result? They let themselves go completely.
Bad for Health Fat Prison is very bad for prisoners health. Don't forget, the greater our weight, the greater the strain on our joints and spine. And the fatter we grow, the harder our heart has to work to keep us going. No wonder so many fat prisoners get ill!
Depressing Fat Prison is a depressing experience, not only for the prisoners but also for their families. In fact, the children of fat prisoners often grow up to become prisoners themselves. It's a vicious cycle.
Question So why do so many people end up in Fat Prison? And even more important, why don't they leave once they discover how awful it is?
Answer Because they prefer to eat cookies, chocolate, potato chips, popcorn, doughnuts, fatty meat and creamy desserts. They know that this stuff makes them fat but they don't care. They'd rather go to prison than give up their regular mouthful of fat. *Some may have other reasons
Are you a fat prisoner? Have you locked yourself up in your own private Fat Prison? If so, here's some advice. Don't waste another day of your life in jail. Get out now!
All you have to do is stop eating junk and start eating properly and you can walk free tomorrow.
It may take a few months before your weight returns to normal, but your tiredness will lift immediately and within a week you'll feel ten times better. So what are you waiting for?Get out of your Fat Prison today and start really living!
