It's been 15 days now and I don't know how to stop

I've been overeating for 15 days and I feel terrible- physically, mentally, etc. Anyone have experience with this and have tips on breaking out of it? I'm at a loss...I don't know how I got in this rut but I really really need to get out!!!

if you know you are doing it you need to make the choice to stop. There isnt a specific way to put an end to it other than will power. Go for a walk. Work out first thing in the morning so you are more aware of what you put in your body that day.

I think the fact that you KNOW how many days you've been overeating is great!! You aren't as far gone as you think! At least you are aware of what you are doing.
Make today Day #1 of eating sensibly! Start counting those days!!
Good luck!!

first step: go to the store and stock up on healthy breakfasts, lunches and dinners. i find that if i don't have enough supplies in the house, i go on take-out benders. next step: prepare your own food, make the time. THROW AWAY any of the foods that are causing you temptation. finally: take a walk & breathe in the fresh air. i think it's a great step that you're still on PT, a sign that you want to change your behaviour. good luck!

Don't look back, stop counting the days!

I say stop looking back and obsessing about the amount of time you've been bad. If I "fall off the wagon" I instantly try to forget it and start fresh with my next meal. I find if I focus on the past I get in even more of a rut. You know, when you talk to yourself and say "well, I had that piece of chocolate cake for lunch so I guess I'll just make this a cheat day and have some ice cream with dinner." Then the next morning you say, "Well, yesterday wasn't so great, I'm already in cheat mode so maybe I'll just have one more day...the weekend...the week." If you slip up and indulge, so just that, enjoy what you're eating and don't obsess and guilt over it, but stop there and start with a clean slate. You can't do anything about the past but you can completely change your future. Good luck!

First... The fact that you are aware you need to get out of it is a good start. But now take a deap breath, by putting so much pressure on "having to get out of it" makes it something that you are required to do. Try and approach it in a different mind frame, everytime I say I have to , need to (Even though I do) I am setting myself up for disaster. Rather this time I snapped out of a rut by writing down what it is I realllly want and adding one thing to the list every morning. So not only are you re-reading all the postive things you have thought about from the days past but you are begining your day on w/ the right mind frame. One of my favorites is
"I have been depressed about how much weight I have gained in the last 20months and by making these changes I am adding one more day that I can look back on positively , and those 20mths flew by so in 20 more months I am going to be looking back on this experience proud, satisfied, accomplished, and skinny!!"
...long winded but I hope it helps!
