Jeanie, so what! it was one day only. Today you will do better. 52 days don't get erased in day, girl. You have done so well, it was just a small hiccup. Don't give up Jeanie!!!!

I admire your honesty so much! And you made it over 50 days! That's really impressive and I know you'll get there again. Stay strong today. YOU GOT THIS!

I'm 2/30.

I don't usually post on the weekends, so I just thought I'd pop back in here and wish everyone a happy Labor Day. Let's make it a binge free weekend!

"See" you on Tuesday!

Have a great on plan weekend Amy

Great job on the 30 days Marika, SLD is working well for you.

After 2 back to back days of carb binging I plan to do a 24 hr.coffee/water fast tomorrow. I have done it before to help me break the cycle and it usually works well. I have been so overly full the last two days I probably won't even get truly hungry.

Hi Jeanie

Wishing you only good things, my friend❤

Thanks Lisa. I really am trying to approach things differently now as my old way of thinking and behaving will not work long term.

Thanks Lisa.

I will not be keeping track of binge-free days anymore. I don't want to binge ever again, so I am came to realization that there is no need to count anything. I don't want this to sound ignorant. I think it is better for me to eliminate the word binge from my dictionary. By writing the binge-free days here did not prevent me from binging (unfortunately). It may work for others but not for me. I am still cheering on all of you who stay binge-free and hope the accountability helps you.

Hi Marika-
I completely understand. When I first started this journey, I was counting binge free days or more precisely clean eating days. On my wt loss journal, I continue to count days of clean eating, or freedom from addiction to carbs, or whatever that number means to me for that day. Lately it has meant 200+ days of food sanity
Kutgw!

Marika - I totally get this! You have to do what feels right for you. I see myself going there at some point too.

Jeanie - how are you holding up?

I had a really strong weekend. I was very in control and had no urges to binge. I also read "Brain Over Binge" and if you guys haven't read it, I highly HIGHLY recommend it. When I first read about it online, I thought it sounded cheesy and too simplistic but I actually found the author's ideas on curing binge eating to be very compelling and I truly do feel a shift in my thinking after reading it. I'm not so cocky to believe that this book cured me of anything, but I am interested to try her method the next time the urge to binge strikes. I am optimistic that it will be very helpful.

Hello, I am going to go back and read these posts, but need to commit to not binging. I did well for years, losing 40 then after a year another 20 and kept it off for a few years. When I am on track I have no issues with binging, but since January, I find I have lost my footing, gained 20 back and am having a problem with bingeing again. I hate it.
Last night I hid food I was eating when my brother walked into the kitchen. I havent done that for years.
So I am wholeheartedly committing to myself that I will be good to myself and not eat foods I already know will cause me to feel poorly about myself, both mentally and physically.

I am sorry if this is completely out of line for this thread, or I have jumped in on a more private group, but I really needed to get it out. Thanks.. and have a wonderful day!!!

Not at all! At least not in my opinion. I think this is the perfect place for continued discussion and support.

Hi Lizzie

Back on track for a few days now, today I feel exhausted and headachy so I am doing my best to not self medicate with carbs.

7 days binge free

It took those 7 days to get back to the weight I was pre-binge. I'm looking forward to losing new weight instead of losing the same old pounds.

And, yes, I am a broken record, but for those who didn't see my previous post: please read "Brain Over Binge" if you haven't already. I am a believer!

It's great to see this thread getting more active. Support and accountability are a wonderful thing!

Hi Lisa, Lizzie, Jeanie & Marika! (hope I'm not missing anyone!)

I'm at day 8 binge free. Yesterday was a REALLY stressful day but the urge to binge never came. I'm sure it helped that it was my high calorie JUDDD day so I had plenty of fuel and never felt deprived.

Let's keep on keepin' on!
