Day 1 (again)

Ok, I’m back to day one of my not binge eating. A little discouraged, but I know this is a process. Any tips?

  1. I got about three days without binging and today feels like a real struggle. The urges are strong. I don’t always know what I need, but what helped me for the last few days was trying not to restrict so I don’t get to that point of starving and wanted to eat everything. I tried to eat every few hours so I at least felt somewhat full for most of the day and that diminished some of the urges. I also don’t want to deprive myself of anything, so I am trying to let in some of the binge foods I would usually avoid a little at a time. I’m curious what works for you on a binge free day? Distraction? Being around other people? Keeping busy? Talking with a therapist?

  2. So tomorrow is going to be my third “day one” of this week…and I am still trying to figure out what works. So far I’ve found that by having “bad foods” everyday helps me not crave them to the point of having a binge. The trouble is having the willpower to stop. Also being mindful helps such as listening to your body when you feel full. Distraction is a big one because I get in the trap of binging when I’m bored which is quite often. I know this is a journey. But this is one of the toughest things to beat. Glad we are in this together!

  3. Feeling full is a hard thing to gauge – I almost never know until I am overfull and I have a stomach ache in the middle of the night! A little late! It is one day at a time, one hour and I am trying not to be too hard on myself – part of this is just accepting ourselves where we are. Hugs!!
