I just found this forum and really want to join.. today will be day 1 of no binge for me.

Bella


There is no such thing as a beginning, you have already begun and the ending, well there is none. It is a life time battle, a life time disease, a life time life style, a life time of mistakes and fixing them. Try again today never say wait I'll do it tomorrow. Today is all we have, all we will have and all we need. ~~

21 days binge free, eh? I'm in! Unfortunately I binged today. =( But that means day 1 will be tomorrow! Which is perfect timing, because my fiance left for Florida yesturday and won't be back until next Sunday. And I sure as hell don't want to binge every day until he gets back! So, I'm done binging for tonight and tomorrow will be day 1 binge free.

Does anyone else have Easter candy around? I hardly ever buy sweets, (because I know I'll eat them all!) but my mom gave us easter baskets. My goal is to eat no more than 1 piece of candy a day. Time to get this streak started!!!

day 4! I think this is the longest I've been binge-free in maybe...6 months?
I have 2 midterms and a paper due next week, but I am utterly determined to get through them without turning to food. Honestly? I'd rather do a little worse on the exams than end up breaking this streak. My perfectionist self cringes at the thought of getting less than an A, but I'm realizing I have to ignore those thoughts if I'm using them to excuse a binge.
I'm really serious about being healthy, so I'm staying away from the kitchen no matter what!

Tragichild- I do know what you mean. I am shocked that I am on Day 5 sugar free. I had some serious craves earlier that had me in tears. I fought threw it - I cant beleive it. My calories were also higher today. But at least I was in control.

Good for us!!!!!!!!!!!! emoticon

Kari, good to have you join us! Stay strong! You can do it.

I just got through Day 4. I don't know how. My calories were higher than I'm used to but still within my acceptable range and with no out-of-control binges. This is awesome. This is the longest streak I've had in a while. I'm proud...and a little scared of failing now that I've come so far

Hi...I too have been binging lately and worse of all I have been perging,please don't judge me,I am a mom of 3 and going to LA Weight Loss and just keep gaining and losing the same 5 lbs now for almost 2 months and am depressed and stressed out.I am going to commit to atleast 5 hours of cardio a week now and go out and walk,by myself in the fresh air!!

I am not going to binge from today on !! I am going to win my battle with the scale !! April.13th marks day 1 down ....20 days to go for the challenge and then I will never BINGE or PERGE again !!

Thanks for being here for me ,

Kari

I THANK GOD FOR ALL I'VE BEEN GIVEN AT THE END OF EVERY DAY...I HAVE BEEN BLESSED.

UB, I got so sick last night and I don't know if it was all the junk food I ate or if it was a flu, but man it was gross...I can't even think of sweet right now without gagging...But I just wanna tell you you're not alone, I have done the same thing, just with different candy bars last week...I'm not even going to weigh myself this week, I'm sure I gained 10lbs - either way I don't want to know..Picking myself up brushing myself off and moving on..come on then...I can't do this alone...together we can beat this thing...I know we can.

We are having a baby!
I'll be back on in 9 months :)

I made it through Day 3. It was a tough one. Had a major, major urge to binge just after my afternoon snack but I made it through.

I was even able to eat a tablespoon of peanut butter tonight when my calories were a little low and stop at just that one tablespoon full. That's huge for me!

Great work, ladies! Stay strong!

I did pretty well today, this is day 4 for me. I did eat more chocolate covered raisins than I had planned to, so I decided to skip the rice with dinner and add more veggies.

No more slip ups, not even little fixable ones. I am going to do this!

Great job ladies, you're all getting a huge pat on the back from me. Even if you slipped up, you came here and admitted and purged and are ready to start again.

I would love to join! I haven't binged since April 10, and think something like this will help me continue. If I made it through the rest of April without bingeing, I would be so proud of myself.

I'm going to use the 10th as my start date, so today was day 3 for me.
keep up the good work everyone :)

I am almost done with Day 3 Sugar Free - WOOHOO!!!

My Aunt came to town to visit a few days earlier then planned and I had to go out to dinner unexpected. I was so nervous that I would crave and get dessert. Well 4 woman and can you believe no one ordered dessert. I would have eaten dessert I think if someone else did. Its sad to say. But I am an accountant working the worst week of the year (tax time) and I worked from 8-7 today with no break (ate while working) so I was kind of cranky.

I am still on Day 3 - whew!!!! I made it!!! I hope everyone is doing well. And if you had a bad day today, just think tommorow is a new day!!!! Good luck to all!! emoticon

This was my Day Two.

I had a major, major urge to binge this evening but I made it through somehow. Mini-victory, yay!

I've been feeling really down and out-of-shape, which is ridiculous because I haven't missed a day of exercise in weeks. But all I can see when I look in the mirror is fat. It makes it hard to stay positive.

Anyhow, I'm trying! I wish everyone else continued good luck on their streaks! We can definitely do this! Stay strong!

Ooooh, I almost slipped up. I have a container of yummy vegetable pasta salad in the fridge and almost ate the whole thing when I remembered this streak and I had just a 1/2 cup instead and put the rest back in the fridge. Whew!!

CHUCKSLADY don't beat yourself up, it happens. Tomorrow's another day to start again. I hope feel okay after your fall.

Good luck everyone with your streaks!

Well, shoot! Made it through day 1, but today let myself get too hungry and then ate 1/2 bag of tortilla chips. So I guess I'll start over tomorrow (and not overeat the rest of today) and try to have a 19 day streak!

Hey girls...i want to join in also. My biggest vice is binging after school since i am stressed out. It makes me tired and grouchy since i usually binge on icecream, cookies or cakes.....Binging is causing my weight to stay the same instead of going down... emoticon

I really want to get away from the binges and the rollercoaster of emotions wrapped up in them, but I need all the help and support I can get!

Largeness should not exclude you from loving, eating, dancing, swimming, running or involving yourself in the millions of activities you have put on the back burner until the slim you arrives. Life doesn't start with slimness or stop at anything larger. Life is for living with as few personal impediments as possible.

Me too, I'm there - we will get to 21 days 1 day, 1 minute 1 second at a time.
But... lol I gotta start tomorrow, cuz I piggy piggied at lunch - and NO MORE SCALE for me either, it's up and down up and down, and when it's down I feel happy and when it's up I feel yucky - BUT WE ARE MORE THAN #'S!!!
I will no longer be defined by #'s on a scale.
I am doing a 6 week sugar, flour& dairy fast starting next week (health not weight loss issues)so commiting not to binge will help me no pig out cuz I can't have what I really want.
AWESOME IDEA LADIES LOVE IT THANKS!!

We are having a baby!

I'm with you CHAZZYMOM, I thought there is no way I'll make it 21 days, I can't even make it a week. So to truly challenge myself, I am in on this one. Hopefully this will become a habbit that will stick around.

I want to do this! My gut reaction was fear, as in... no way can I go 21 days without a little binge. But my new mantra is "I have enough," to which I add whatever I have enough of to do whatever I need, so "I have enough resilience to go 21 days without bingeing."

So I'm in!

Hey Kim! Glad you joined!

The little calendar is one of the emoticons available in the "Add an emoticon" link when you reply to a post! But unfortunatly there is only one for Day 1!!

This new streak started in the thread called "A bad time -- please help" and we agreed SHREWLADY and I to make a specific thread about this 21 day streak so everyone will know about and can join us! So here is goes! Starting today, this challenge will bring us to the end of April and let see if we can go even beyond that!

Feel free to join us on this challenge and let us know how you are doing!
