New beginning today. Missed logging in yesterday so I have to start a new streak - again. Yet I will start again as many times as I have to in order to succeed! I did have a wonderful time at the lake including tons of swimming...but I did not know we were going so I had not prepared ahead of time, which is why I had not completed some of my 'daily' activities such as logging in to SparkPeople.
I came to the realization last night that one of my meds that I've run out of (and will start on again after seeing the doctor soon) is Topamax which is for bipolar and is also used to help with binge eating. Not having that med might be contributing to my increased eating episodes lately. I know I am the one responsible for what goes in my mouth and I am the one that makes the choices. Yet I will be glad to get back on my meds and see if that helps give me more control with that moment of decision of eating or not eating.
