    I understand how you feel about not being able to not eat something. It’s really hard to explain. People would just say, “yeah it’s easy…just don’t eat it.” But then sometimes, we just compulsively do these things before we have time to think it through. Don’t guilt trip yourself, though…’cause that usually leads to some bad things :(

    Thanks GeeGee, I know but overeating has such a negative effect it’s difficult not to beat yourself up. I’ve not had a good couple of days, been totally gorging. It always makes me feel so horrible that it seems totally crazy to do it in the first place. Hoping resolve is back tomorrow. Good luck all :-

    I have totally been having a rough few days, too. Saturday was the worst, I just ate a ton of sweets and felt like I couldn’t stop. I went to bed feeling completely stuffed and miserable, especially after going out with friends and eating after I had already eaten lots of stuff when I was alone. Sunday and Monday went well, but today I feel like I’m back at it. I haven’t totally lost control but I have definitely overeaten way past the point of fullness, and I don’t feel very strong right now.

    Okay so for the rest of today, I want to set my resolve to eat mindfully. Hope the rest of you are doing well!!!

    Hi Conqueror, I’m totally with you on this, I’ve almost hit rock bottom over the past few days, felt very miserable, unhealthy, lethargic and so on… you know where I’m at. Today, I’m having a calm day at home, no work to do so have done a bit of cooking, washing and generally chilling and am beginning to feel a little better. I too am trying to take note of when my body is actually hungry, wierdly the cooking doesn’t make me crave but seems to be occupying my thoughts, leaving no room for thinking about food. Of course those thoughts are creeping in every now and then but not desperately so – but of course the hard part of the day is yet to come. My youngest son is having a friend to play after school today so I think that will help me. Sending lots of positive vibes your way, forget the past couple of days, onwards and upwards xxx

    Ugh, I’m so there, Pippa! I totally just binged like crazy and I’m feeling so gross. I’m really trying to figure out this thing because sometimes it seemingly comes out of NOWHERE and I feel totally blindsided by it. But I know that there’s always a reason for bingeing, and that I need to work on my self-care. Double Ugh! That sounds impossible with the way that I’m feeling right now. Tomorrow is a new day, though, and a new chance at this thing. Hope you’re doing well and that you’re having a victory day!!!

    Hi Conqueror,

    You are so right, tomo is a new day and you can’t expect to be binge free from day 1, it is a journey and you are making progress! You can’t fail cuz you won’t give up and try and start all over again, you will just put the slip up behind you, learn from it and move on!! You will find you eat healthy for the day and you will be feeling back to your pre binge fab-that post binge bloat spoils everything!!!

    I agree- there is always a reason we binge-mine is normally stress, being busy and grabbing without thinking, etc but i think when you know what it is it does help you to understand it more.

    Good luck! xxx

    Hi all. Conqueror, I agree with Lauzy, you can put this behind you now and strive for a better day. Since my slump I have got my Paul McKenna book out again and started to re-follow his advice, only eating when hungry. I’m on day 2 and I have to say I’m feeling amazing. Even after such a short time I can already see that I have changed shape slightly. I can feel my food going into my stomach and registering there and it’s a good feeling. I am still taking one day at a time, I am not so naive as to think ‘I’ve cracked it’ – I’ve been here before and still blown it. But for today things are good, let’s leave it there.

    Try not to beat yourself up – although I know this is very difficult. Self confidence and self esteem are a wonderful thing and it never fails to surprise me that, even after one day of not binging, how much better we can feel.

    Keep at it everyone, success is round the corner, have a peek and see how it feels :)
