I must admit I have been pretty happy with my progress overall in the Diet Bet. Don’t get me wrong, I have by no means been perfect. I have had amazing days, I have had good days, I have had bad days, and I’ve even had some ugly binge eating days. I’m still fighting that binge monster. Some days I just don’t believe I can eat so much, and of course when I binge it is tons of junk! Where does my body put it all? How come I don’t feel full and stop?
However, overall there have been way more good days than bad. Many, many days where I cooked at home and only a few where I went out to eat. So I am pretty proud of myself. I am trying to learn to live healthier, to eat better, and I think this has made me more aware of what I am putting into my body on a regular basis. I have been really trying to eat healthier foods that fill me up instead of junk.
This week I succeeded! Down – 1.4 pounds! Woohoo! Very happy. I am not doing this to become some skinny thing, skinny has never been my goal and in truth I think the way we all view ourselves is very relative. However, I will admit that after Thanksgiving/Christmas I am very glad to have my pants fit once again. Also, on my long run this week I felt less jiggle, jiggle, jiggle as I ran and I am hoping my knees and hips appreciate me for it.
My biggest struggle is still the binge eating. Some days I do so well counting out exact serving sizes. Others I eat an entire bag of Popchips, or 5 bags of popcorn….
Why can I stop some days and not others? hmmm…..
How do you avoid binge eating moments? Tips. (Please.)
