MrsRatfire's Journal, 22 May 2014

Well it has been about 8 weeks or so. I had several days that I binged last month, recorded it. And lately, I need one. Not a deadly, guilt ridden crazy stuffing- just higher fat for one than I am eating. I cut it super close yesterday and ate 1900 calories- a 100 more than my outside limit. I normally average about 1500. But I have felt very unsatisfied all day. So I decided to do a break day. I am eating what I want, but recording it. It is not that bad, I am feeling okay with it and satisfied.

As my food intake controlled now, the binge ail not be as deep or as long as the last one. And you know what I say about binges- this too shall pass!

Everyone goes up down and sideways on calories- just track no matter what I get back on my plan right away, vs. weeks and months due to the "failure" self talk. There is NO way to wake up one morning, start a food plan and NEVER vary until you lose all of the weight. It is ridiculous and it=f this is the expectation, you will be disappointed. If you put more value on this than it is worth- you could end up quite depressed and stuck there a ling time- we all have done that.

Enter your food, even if the food is not standard fare for you. Expect some on and offs. As time goes no, the off days are fewer and far between and you actually enjoy them less, therefore reducing repeating the. The first month I probably had 3 bing days. The second month which is not over, I have had one and a few days on the calorie limit. Over the month, this means NOTHING. If you track your food in My Fat Secret, you can open the calendar and see month view. It will then show what you averaged per day based on the current month.

Happy Dieting! Encourage Each Other- it helps a lot!

16lbs. in 3 weeks is breathtakingly amazing. I think we all need to take breaks. It's a long road. And once we decide to do it, we actually don't pig out because we're so aware of what we can or can't eat, so are still on the cautious side. Enjoy your treat.

Just saw the comment- thank you- agreed! It is impossible to be flawless in a food plan. I usually find a eating high date result in another. It is the 24, and I did one yesterday. But today- I am done. No pain, no frustration, I am done. And roughly 1900 calories or so. The let month my two day binge was about 2300 a day. Once you ease off on consumption, you just change! That is freedom.
