Day 12 binge free! I am starting to lose track though. LOL. Just had to go back and count. It's nice to not obsess about it though. Looks like everyone is doing great!

Let's keep it up!

Thanks Marika! It got a little quiet in here again. I hope that means everyone is rockin' it and doesn't need this thread! I completely forgot to post here yesterday and that's a good thing. It means I'm not over-thinking it which is important to me. I'm on day 14 now and I feel fine. I'm in that zone where you feel like you'll never binge again. I hope that's true, but I'm well acquainted with that how fast and sudden an urge can be so I'm staying quietly on the alert without obsessing too much.

Good job, Amy. I know the feeling...you think it will never strike again and sometimes it does Keep doing what you are doing and the desire to binge will eventually go away completely. At least, that's what I think. The longer we stay binge-free the chances are lower for the binge to happen, but if it happens- it happens and we move on.

You're doing great Amy this thread ebbs and flows but do what works for you in terms of posting. If it helps to keep you on track, post!

Thanks! In some corner of my brain I think this thread makes me accountable, although I know in reality I'm only accountable to myself. But it's great to have a tiny corner of the world with other people who "get it".

15 days BF.

Good job Amy

I am stying on track just don't count the binge-free days anymore. Well, I know I stopped binging on August 1st...just changing my whole attitude and listening to my body so when it ask for more food or carbs I will feed it, even if it means I go over my calories or carbs for the day I think this makes it easier on me mentally.

Amen! Sounds like a great plan to me!

Doing well here too. Trying to keep the "binge" word out of my vocabulary. I stay low carb as much as possible, but I am eating what I want when I want it now and not trying so hard to be perfect.

Well, guys, as much as I hate to come here and admit it, I tripped up yesterday. But interestingly enough, I don't feel the old intense guilt / dread / self-hatred that I have in the past. It feels more like an "oops and now let's move on". I guess that's progress. I am dealing with that awful physical "binge hangover" feeling this morning, but mentally I feel fine. Onwards and upwards!

Have a great weekend everyone!

Yep just move on Amy

I am amazed at the mental aspect of it all, if I feel guilt and disappointed that I wasn't perfect it only leads to more binges!

That's the way to look at that, Amy!!! Moving on with no guilt!!! I know the physical consequences are rough the next day but in couple of days or DD rotations you will feel better.
Have a good weekend girls!

Hi, hoping I can join you all! This group is exactly what I need. I binge at night. I'm not quite sure when it started, but it has unfortunately become an overwhelming issue that I feel like I don't have control over. Last night was my first night not giving in, so I'm down 1 day! It's evening here, but so far it's a little easier tonight than last night. Deep breaths...lol.

Hi Christina - glad you're joining us! It's somehow easier to fight the battle when you know you have others who understand and who will help keep you accountable. You can do it!

tobelowcarber - thanks again for the constant encouragement. It's awesome!

Bad day for me today after being binge-free for almost 2 months
Well..moving on to lower carbs to stop the binge monster from doing more damage.

Ah, Marika - sorry to hear that! It especially sucks when it happens after keeping it under control for so long. But, you got this! Onwards and upwards, my friend!

So far, so good! I seem to have this pattern where I go 2 weeks to 20 days between strong binge urges. So I'm sailing through the "easy days" and trying to mentally prepare for when things get hard.

Glad you're doing better today!

Amy, if too personal, please ignore. Do you think it is hormonal because in my case it is for sure! PMS is the only time I binge plus there is always 1 day couple of days after TOM.

I suspect it is, but it's not obvious (doesn't always land during PMS or any certain # of days before my period). I need to start tracking that more closely I guess, although even if that's the answer I'm not sure it helps me. I have yet to win against a strong binge urge. Once it takes over I eat and eat and eat until I feel disgustingly sick. Then I vow to never do it again only to repeat a couple weeks later.
