    i was very busy last night at a concert with friends, so there was no opportunity to binge. today, however i came home and was fine all day. we went out to dinner, and i became antsy after and just wanted to go home and snack. but i killed time by picking up my brother from work and running errands. Then i got home and had a snack with my family. I got up and had a bowl of ice cream too and was thinking about going back for more, but instead i decided to go upstairs, write this and head to bed. i could feel a binge was coming on because i was waiting for my dad to fall asleep and was planning what i was going to get, but instead, i chose to go upstairs and not wreck my progress from the last few days and im pretty proud of myself :)

    hey good job. Thats a big deal. That kind of control takes balls. Today was hard as hell for me too. Idk if its the weekend or b/c im relaxin but i have been fightin a binge since i woke up. It took some serious devotion not to just mongoose some junk food.

    I talked to my buddy about this journal and that helped to curve an urge to binge around supper time. I would be walking on clouds right now if alcohol didn’t have so many calories. Really have to focus on not celebrating food so damn much. Its not that special but in my mind sometimes its the most amazing thing. Exercise in the mornin and focus on defeating tomorrow. Proud of you 1kcomani.

    sounds like you had a good day too! right now, im trying to fight off a binge and its hard because im the only one home. but my brother should be home soon and im going to go do yardwork with him to get my mind off of it. i just started to eat ice cream out of the carton which is usually a bad sign, and i had a mini binge but i dont think most people would call it that. It was just a pretty big dessert, two mini chocolate chip cookies and a kinda big bowl of ice cream and chocolate chips. but i stopped which is the hard part and now im going to work it off. plus i ran 5 miles this morning already. ill let you know how the rest of today goes.

    thank! just had another episode but trying to stop. im home from school now and not working yet and none of my friends are home so im just bored. I tend to eat when im bored, especially at night. i know how youre feeling with thinking about sweets all day, but at least you didnt cave in! im really trying to be done eating for the night and its nice to be able to write about it on here because i think its helping

    Defiantly agree that the journal is helping. Ran three miles yesterday afternoon, had a good meal and went to bed. Getting ready to go run now and then off to work. Busy today so hopefully that will hedge against a binge. Will repost later this afternoon. Keep up the good work comani.

    good for you! yes, being busy helps me too. had an okay day today, did the elliptical for 30 minutes after eating about 8 cookies and some chips, but other than that its been a good day. had a good meal for dinner. also, what i ate this afternoon really isnt that bad by my binging standards so i hope that means progress in the right direction. actually, these last few days, i know i have been over eating a little by normal standards (dessert every night) but when i compare what i ate these last few days to how much i eat during a binge, it really hasnt been that much, Plus i have been exercising 5 days a week to get ready for my 10 mile race on sunday.

    Had the last of my finals today. Latin;and it almost killed me. Stress releif is something that I have often leaned on food for. Been really hard today to not reward myself with some really bad food and a binge. I feel weird and don’t really know what to do with myself. Anxious continuously. I have held up so far, but it will take a lot to get through with out breaking down. I have done it for so long it feels natural to do it.

    Gotta break the habit though so it will just have to be hard. Stayed up all night studing so gonna take a nap now and will re-post later tonight.

    thats good though! youve been able to fight off binging for a few days now dont give in! i find that exercising helps distract me or something where i use my hands. had a good day here too! feels good to be making progress :)

    so far so good! i have wanted to binge and have felt the urge, but have either disregarded them or had a regular snack and stopped! this feels like a step in the right direction after so long. after dinner, i usually feel the urge to just keep eating and eating and never feel full, but tonight,i had my dinner and wanted nothing else to eat. i felt unusually full, like i had just never realized it before. i feel good and plan to continue making progress!! :)

    At the beach this weekend. Been really busy and unable to post. I apologize. Your killin it comani. You have a lot to be proud of. I have been doing good for the most part. The alcohol consumption went up a little this weekend but all in all havent been on a binge like i am accustomed to in a while now. I definitely know what you mean when you say its different to feel full. This journal has given me a form of control and I am so glad I am doing it. Will be home tomorrow, re-post then. Keep up the good work partner, your doin us both some good.

    did my race yesterday… definitely feeling it haha. had a little more junk food (ice cream) than usual yesterday but i thought it was balanced out by running 10 miles. had the chance to binge last night but instead chose to go to bed. sounds like youre making progress on your end too! feeling good :)

    not such a good day. jinxed it by posting earlier. not an extreme binge, but worse than anything this past week. just wishing for it to be tomorrow so i can move forward again. i feel bad and dont even know why i did it today. i was feeling off and that may have contributed to the binge. will post tomorrow
