I feel great!

Thursday, September 08, 2016

Being on a healthy weight loss and diet plan feels great! I have tons of energy. I am not too tired or sleepy during the day. With the exception of occasional hunger pangs here and there I feel comfortable with what and how much I eat. I also feel awesome mentally. I feel happy, positive, more at peace. I sleep a lot better. So many big and immediate benefits to a healthy lifestyle! I feel this each and every day that I eat healthy. So, I ask myself, why on earth do I ruin this for myself? Why on earth do I go into binge eating sprees that last for days and make me feel tired, bloated, depressed? I am my own worst enemy. I want to understand why I do this to myself, why I allow this to happen, so that I can change in the long term. I guess overeating feels so good in the short term, when I am doing it, but afterwards I feel awful. It’s not worth it. I need to remember this. I need to remind myself.

    I had the same thoughts the other night. For me I think I'm afraid to try to lose and fail to get to my goal. Maybe that's what your problem is too?

    The first step towards recovery is acknowledging that you have a problem. You've definitely taken that first step and I congratulate you on that! Hold tight to those positive feelings you have and perhaps consider keeping a private daily diary.

    A diary may help track patterns that you weren't aware of. I had a diary I kept during my divorce proceedings to help remind me why we were separating (it's a little different, but it helped me move on to a healthier lifestyle). Maybe a diary will help you see what emotions, stresses, or happenings trigger your desire to overeat.

    I completely understand. I feel so much more in control and focused when I am eating right. I wish I would not get off track so easily. My triggers seem to be stress or feeling celebratory.

    I used to be bullemic. When I was on Nutri Systems & WW. Then when I started SP I Was for a while & then found a friend who conquered alcohol. I decided if she could conquer alcohol, I surely could conquer bullemia & I did! I no longer binge & purge

    I think we use food for many reasons. I am a "stress eater" big time.. I think this is a continual learning process.. Getting healthy, and then staying healthy..
