Feel like bingeing? Post here first!

Postby natalie » Mon Feb 27, 2006 1:55 pm

Hello Everybody

I wanted to start this tread so anybody who feels like bingeing can post here first.

Sometimes it helps just to talk it through with like minded people who understand what it is like....

Writing down your feelings here helps and it will help the feeling of wanting to binge pass....well thats the intention anyway.

So if youre feeling low and you want to eat DONT - come here first and talk it through.I for one will be here to listen and if I can help at all I will do my best.

Toogether we can support each other and we can get through this toogether.

Natalie. :)

What a great idea Natalie, I am not sticking to plan as I should be, I have no Kitchen at the moment as we are renovating. After work we are painting and building the cupboards etc so we are having Subway or BBQ Chook most nights.

I find myself just grabbing anything that is quick & easy (usually BREAD & CHEESE) because I'm too tired and when I get this tired I don't have any will power.

I'm not eating balanced meals and that is also making me tired. :?

I have to get weighed on Friday :( I have missed a few weeks and I know I enjoyed a few things I shouldn't have had while on holidays as well as the last week or so. :oops:

Hello Fairie

I so know what you are going through with no access to kitchen facilities....When our house was getting built we had to live with the in laws and we were not alowed to use their kitchen to cook.(they are total control freaks) My mother in law tried so hard to sabotage me....but thats another story.....

Anyway we should have brought shares in subway as we had them often.You can make some really smart choices when it comes to takeaway.Chineese was another one of our faviruites...

I know being tired is probably an extra challenge because it is well known fact that when you are tired you could overeat and lack energy.

Dont worry about willpower either - its so overated.

I believe willpower can be broken up into two sectons....

Will(the will to do it) and.... Power(the power within to make it happen)

What do you think? Does this make sense to you?

The disabled baby lamb that I have been bottling feeding since November died on Monday and ever since I have been needing a chocolate binge!!!!!!
Had 3 bars of chocolate in one day!!! I don't normally eat chocolate but right now I need it more than ever!!

Cheers

Hello Maria

I am so sorry for your loss...How terrible....Being an animal lover myself I can understand where you are comming from. :(

Right now you need to be kind to yourself and not worry to much about the chocolate.Under the circumstances you were just doing what you felt you needed to do at the time.

Chocalote is a very comforting food as when you eat it all those endorpines(did I spell that right?) get released giving you that feel good feeling you get afterwards - for about 20 minutes! and then bang - sugar levels begin to crash and then you are back to square one.

I think you should do nice things for yourself at the moment.Go for long walks so you have some you time so you can take stock and think about your goals and to try and get yourself back on track again.

I dont know if what I am saying is helping but I hope it has.


Take care,

Natalie. :)

Thanks Nat, You're right! Chocolate got me through the worse few days.
Last night I took off down the block with the 2 bottle fed lambs that were not disabled - I had 4 of our goats in tow - had a good cry (I don't cry often at all, sometimes I thnk we all need to!) I felt better expressing myself in private (except for the animals).
Now it is time to brush myself down and get back to it - without chocolate! :)
Today is a new day.
Cheers

Felt like scoffing in to the bloke's biscuits, but decided to just have some golden syrup on a piece of bread. Ate about half of it, then threw the rest, I'd had my sweet fix.
35kg lost. (November 2005 - October 2006)
15kg gained again (as at October 2010).
Back to the drawing board - Let's do this thing!

Hi Girls

I am glad you had a good cry maria.It helps to release all those emotions that would be otherwise bottled up inside and helps us to move on.I am the same...I feel uncomftable to show my emotions like that in front of others(exept my dear husband and my cat lol...)

Jaydess I am sorry to hear about your loss how terrible for you.In time the pain will ease and I bet you have so many beautiful memories that you will always cherish....Thats the only thing about owning animals that really sucks.They really dont live long and its not fair.To me loosing an animal would be like loosing a family member but I know we all have to go through it.

take care,

Natalie.

I am strong enough not to give in but at this moment i would love a big glass of full fat milk with lots of biscuits to dunk in it. Mmmmmmm. Probably just have a flavoured tea with no milk at all :?

You'll soon work off the fredo's - I still work on 80/20. Providing I stick to the low fat healthy alernative 80% of the time. I allow myself a treat no and then..it works for me.
