This is not the type of update I wanted to post, but for the sake of being honest about my journey and holding myself accountable I am going to put it out there.
In 9 weeks I am down only 0.2 pounds.
As in not even a full pound.
In 9 weeks!
I do really well most of the time and do believe Weight Watchers is a great program, a program I plan on continuing with because 99% of the time it works wonders for me. It is simple to understand, easy to use, and helps me to make smarter choices all while still allowing me to enjoy little treats every now and then (with the extra points I earn).
However, as I have admitted recently, I have been struggling with my binge eating disorder more than usual. It has popped back up with a vengeance and is making this really tough for me. I know that I will always be a work in progress trying to get over this disorder, but sometimes it is tougher than others. Lately, I have found my road to recovery has been much more difficult and my once every couple of weeks/monthly binges are now happening on a very regular basis.
I know I will never be perfect, I know the binges will never disappear, but I also know that in order to be successful I must get them back under control. I must get to the point where they are happening less frequently and are not so severe.
I am trying to take intelligent steps to prevent the binges and get back on track:
(but when a binge hits it is like I turn into a food zombie)
– Drink LOTS more water to stay full.
– Pack extra food just in case I get hungry.
– Keep tons of fruit in the house to stop sweet/dessert cravings.
– Pre-plan meals to stay ahead of the game.
– Try to remember how upset/disappointed I feel post binge so I won’t start.
– Be kinder to myself when I do make mistakes.
So here goes nothing it is a new week, and it is a CRAZY busy one, but I can do this.
What goals do you have for this week?
Any food/nutrition things you are working on?
