i feel so horrible right now, i fell off the wagon about a week ago and since then have not been able to stop eating!!!!! ahhh...i am so far off track its not even funny, and i cant seem to get back on again. i dont know what my problem is, i always do this no matter what, i'll do really well for a few weeks and then just gain the few lbs i lost right back,...and thus the cycle begins again : (

This time it can be different. But you do have to believe in yourself. You can do this. One week of being off track means nothing in the grand scheme of things. It is not too late to get back to your program. Do something nice for yourself (not food related) and renew your spirit. We are here for you.

Maybe everytime you do it it can be for a shorter duration until you don't need to do it at all anymore. What happend yesterday was yesterday, it's over. By reaching out you've already loosend the grip this behavior has on you. Start this day fresh.

Amen, sister. Not only is every day a new day, but every meal is a new meal. There is always time to start over.

I know what you mean! I'll start to drop a bit, the jeans will get a little looser and though I'm excited about it I ruin it. Here's a couple of my obeservations about it.

heavy = comfortable (as in what I'm used to), skinny= attention= discomfort
I don't deserve to feel this good.
I don't want to shop for new clothes.

What is it like for you?

I know what you mean. But you have to get to the place where you want to get the "hate weight" off. Something is making you do the self-destructive thing of overeating. We all make the conscious decision to eat unhealthfully when we do- the question is WHY? Are we really more comfortable heavy, or are we using that as armor, literally and figuratively, against feeling everything inside of us and hiding from the issues that are deep inside? Don't be afraid to be hurt, to be emotional, to TAKE A STAND. This is your life. Don't let issues control you and hinder you from the best you you can be. I say this from experience, it's an on-going struggle, and it takes bravery every day. I committed to my journey a short time ago, and I am resolved to stick with it. Because I won't let past traumas (my issues) hide me from the world. We can have it all- but are you ready to face it all?

thank you everyone....all your comments are so great. its like i'll lose a few lbs and feel more comfortable and then i lose the motivation to get where i really want to be..and then i start being negative and tell myself i'll never get there and of course it's a self-fulfilling prophecy at that point. you are right though. there's this quote i heard the other day that i thought was very fitting -- you either get busy living or get busy dying. if not now, when?

this is such a hard thing to ovecome because it is often such a deeply rooted habit. I notice that i have an especially hard time when I am feeling fat already--if I am bloated (like during my period!) I am much more likely to give in because skinny feels so far away. One trick I use if I am feeling "weak" --like I want to eat, even if I'm not very hungry, but I am fighting with myself about it, is to cook a huge bowl of vegetables with a little olive oil and salt, and each as much as I want. I get the satisfaction of eating, My body feels good, and it often helps with the bloated feeling and the cravings. Anothier thing that often works is to drink like 3 glasses of water--I find I want to eat the most when I am thirsty. Hope these help, if anyone else has a method for getting over the rough spots, please share!

I have found if I am eating what I need to and on time, breakfast 7-8 Lunch 11:30-1 a snack at 3-4 and dinner is early 5-7 if I eat between the time above I am fine, If I eat protein every time I eat I am fine, but when I don’t and I get off schedule it is binge time. I have gone thought this many times, till I learned what works for me. don’t give up, learn your patterns. If before every period you want a big fat cheeseburger, and you don’t feel like working out at all, go with it, and know that you must add a few more workouts in during the other weeks of the months, and eat a few more salads. Don’t stress over this, just learn from it, so next time it is easer.

One day at a time

Although your goals might seem not even near the horizon, you'll get there one day at a time. The fact that you realise that you go off track on your eating and binge is an accomplishment. We feel lousy and guilty. Remember that terrible feeling and let that carry you to tomorrow. Treat yourself just a little better. Reach for that natural 'high' feeling after a workout. You'll be okay.

You're not alone, hon! Some of us (myself included) suffer from the same cycle. I'm pulling for you!
