Two days is only that.. More days to come can be positive and healthy. You're in control! Just get on the scale, see the damage, or even be surprised... and be strong!




I started my weight loss journey in September at 210.. I joined Fat Secret in the middle of October at 196.. Since then this is what I have accomplished.

Just remember to balance everything out and eat healthy! You can eat loads of healthy food, compared to unhealthy.

If you binged for two days then you probably only set yourself back by 2-3 days from reaching your goal weight. Even if you delayed reaching your goal by a week, that's not so bad, is it?

You might well see a bump on the scale, especially if you ate lots of salty or sugary foods. Don't worry too much about it-- it'll be water weight. Eat healthy food with lots of vegetables, drink lots of water, and those pounds will go away in a few days.

I have been known to deliberately have a couple days binge if I have plateaued..... scales dont look pleasant but it drops off very quickly and sets me off again. Important thing is to get back on track then..... and dont presume you can get away with it too often lol.

The important thing is to get back on track right away, & try to learn from it. I've been in the same boat several times & am trying to figure out better ways to deal with my emotions than stuffing them with food. Good luck to you! It's a new day & even a new month, and spring is in the airSmile!

Two days won't make a difference in the long run. It's knowing that you did it and getting back on track that's the key.
Just a hint from an old woman though. Try to keep things around and hand ready for those times. Even splurge items. Emotional eating IS what it IS. So, aim for comfort in something you don't normal have, but isn't off the charts. Or, take yourself out to eat. Sometimes when you are paying for it you are more inclined to watch what you are eating.... but, other than that, don't beat yourself up over it. That two days is past, just keep moving forward! Good luck!

A lot of people have trouble with binging over the holidays. The important thing is to figure out what you could have done differently and do that next time.

A productive plan might be "prepare an Easter dinner I will like so much I won't want to eat the junk". An unproductive plan might be "try harder".

I had the opportunity to have Ron from the Biggest Loser speak to a group of weight loss winners at the DMC and something he said stuck with me. It is not the choices you make for the 10 or so holidays a year, it the choices you make for the other 350. Those are the days that matter the most.

Today is a new day, so forget about those binge days and make today great!! I try to think about that every day, and I still have binges, but I'm not going to quit. It is your body and your health and you are ultimately in control. You can do this!!
Goals for 2014:
Complete Couch to 5K- DONE!!!
Sign up for and complete a 5K- DONE!! 35 mins.
Plan at least 3 outings with the family that involve being active- 2 done
