Confessions of a carb binger

Hard to face...harder to admit.... but in the hopes that it will help someone else I'll share my journal entry this morning...

9/4 UD........199.6
9/5 UD........199.2
9/6 UD........****

9/7 DD........202


Never mind not weighing today because I don't want to know. I'm out of control with food and carbs and I need to write it down not ignore it. Ignoring it is how I regained all my weight. I stopped weighing because I couldn't stop eating NOT THIS TIME!!! If I had stepped on the scale yesterday I may have been able to come to my senses and not have binged all day long.

OK so I overdid and I'm beating myself up over it but I can stop that now... it's just a few tiny pounds not 50.... better get back in control now than months or years later. Better to self examine how these 3 out of control UD's made me feel......

Awful.... they made me feel awful..... I can't say I enjoyed them because instead of enjoying the food I was eating mindlessly.

DH ordered pizza Friday night it was cold and bad.... I ate 2 slices even though it wasn't good. The 2nd slice I basically forced myself to keep eating because my body and brain was screaming throw it away!!! How crazy is that?

Yesterday I couldn't even tell you what I ate... it's all a blurr... I remember cinnamon crunch cereal, nutter butter cookies, tuna and crackers, gold fish by handfuls ....no enjoyment just shoveling it in. DD brought in some cold dry burgers...yeah I ate them.

I need to recognize my body is fighting the weight loss. I need to always remember too many carbs sends me into a binge. I need to always face that scale in the morning and be accountable to myself.

This is a commendably brave post and it addresses a topic that has been bothering me lately as I read around: I can only say that you have recognised what happened and triggered it and caught it early, rather than 'awakening' several weeks or months down the track.

JUDDD is only a schedule - as Nancy's tagline says, JUDDD just cares about calories. JUDDD doesn't care about where the kcals come from: your body probably does.

More later, but I wanted you to know that this has been seen.

Kim, I think we all do this to some extent. It's not something to cause you to berate yourself, but rather a learning opportunity. You saw what was happening, and remembered the tools you need to use to deal with it. I call that a win!

I've been "maintaining" more or less for a good year and a half, and I still have days where I just eat whatever. They always result in a gain. It always takes several weeks to get rid of the damage, and yet I still do it. It's not the end of the world; really it's just a blip in the long-term scheme, as long as you don't let it go on for days, weeks, months.

I can never improve on Dawn's posts!

Kim - I copied this from your weigh in on the "weigh in thread": 9/7 DD........202 Jumping back up on that horse...I got this!

Yes - "you got this!" You're not "going to sleep" (I call it) by avoiding the scale.

ETA: JUDDD is forgiving - you'll drop that UUAD in 1 or 2 DDs.

Kim- you caught yourself in just a couple days. You saw what was going on and that you wanted to change that. You are getting back on track and in a few weeks this will just be a tiny bump in your rearview mirror.

Kim, don't worry. You're here and you've recognized what is going on. These things happen. I have days like Dawn said where I eat whatever I feel like. It can be remedied and you'll do it!

I can't thank all of you enough for the kind words and support

I had hoped to be on here a lot today to help me stay on track but ended up having wonderful surprise, company from Texas. My nephews Today ended up being another UD with Sunday dinner for kids, grandkids, nephews but that's ok because even though calories where high there was no binging or over eating on my part and sometimes family gatherings are all about good food,good times and memories. As long as I can stay in control I'm ok with that.

This sounds wonderful. I'm glad it was a good day.

I'm glad you had a great day with your family and kept your mind off the bad feelings you were having. The guilt feelings are only good because they can get you back on track, but not good to dwell on them and feel bad about yourself. No one can be perfect all the time. Those that really can, I'm convinced, don't really enjoy food at all, and don't understand those of us who do.

I'll quote a nutritionist I was reading recently, who said "If you think what you just ate was bad for you, you are right." She's referring to the stress and guilt feelings we put on ourselves, and all the hormonal and chemical reactions that triggers in our bodies (cortisol). And we all know what those things do to weight loss efforts. So if you're going to eat something, fully enjoy it!

I've stopped thinking of "good food bad food" instead I ask myself do I really really want this and if the answer is yes, I eat slowly and savor.

I love popcorn and hadn't had any for several months. Today its what I wanted. I knew I wouldn't stop thinking about it until I had some. So I did. Damn it was good!

LCG, that is one of the most brilliant things I have ever read! I want to put it on a banner!

Kim, you handled this wonderfully. You recognized what was happening and took control of it. NBD - put it behind you. Onward and downward!!!

I'm finding this to be very true. Along with juddd one of my goals has been to keep diet stress out of my life. I believe it's what caused failures in the past. Accepting and not judging ourselves is a huge part of that.

Wow, this thread is what I needed to see today. A special thanks to Kim for starting it! This past weekend I had a three-day carb binge. I got home on Tuesday...didn't weigh myself till after my DD on Wednesday. I wasn't actually up that much, but I've been feeling so fat since I came home (I'm only actually up to 132). To top it off, DH told me last night that I LOOKED like I had been binging. So it's not my imagination (it's the bloating). I can do JUDDD so well, but I get off of it for a day or two and I just go crazy with the carbs. I really do appreciate that I can maintain so well when I stick to this...but we're going on a two-week trip soon and I want to do a good job of eating healthy and not going overboard. I honestly enjoy my food so much more when I'm JUDDDing!

Oh Shirl, I kind of want to slap your DH. Bloat is bloat, and it will go away pretty fast. I think the real problem is how it makes you FEEL. Maybe the memory of that will help you on your upcoming trip.

Honestly, Carol, I love him dearly, but I can't seem to get across to him how hurtful comments like that are. I have to keep reminding myself I am doing this for me!

when i do go overboard, i wouldn't want to show ANYONE what my journal looks like. i've gotten to the point where i don't weigh myself for a few days after those kind of days. i know successful dieters weigh daily, but the scale can really discourage me. so why not? as long as i'm not going overboard day after day, week after week, it will come off. as long as i'm honest with myself. JUDDD is always faithful to stabilize the scale.

also, i don't necessarily knock feeling binge-y because after i do have a feeding day, i'm content for many days afterward. withholding, is harder on my nerves than the actual overeating. so i get the "want to eat MORE" over with, and i'm on my way and okay with it.

i've had, probably, a binge once every two weeks or so (3500-4000 calories). always afterward, i'm ready to move on and continue with JUDDD. i believe it could very well be my body trying to regain the weight. i'm working at not beating myself over the head anymore when days come up on like this. it's nature trying to keep me from starvation.
