Weigh in Wednesday- I am not perfect.

Weigh In Wednesday

As you guys know, I am not perfect. I am a binge eater, and while I have been able to control it for a while, it has reared it's ugly head. I am trying to follow a strict clean eating diet plan and I will be FINE for a few weeks on it, but then the restriction seeps in and the old habits come out. So I am going to confess my sins, and move on from them.
  1. I ate a bowl of ice cream last night in the shower so my husband wouldn't know. Except that I forgot to go put the bowl away after he fell asleep last night so he found it this morning when he showered. Shameful.
  2. I had pizza and cupcakes AFTER that for dinner. I only had 2 slices and 2 cupcakes, but I still felt like shit after them.
  3. I had to pick up doughnuts for work this morning. I ate two in the car before I got to work. And another 2 while at work. My stomach hurts :(
I haven't had ANY problems with hiding food in over a year, so this has definitely been triggered by my new diet. I need to figure out that happy medium.

So my weight is about what you would expect. 241.0 I am disappointed and sad. I was so proud that I got to 235, and now there is probably no chance of getting to 230 before my Diet Bet starts next Thursday. But that doesn't mean I am not gonna try! I have a week to get back to a place I feel comfortable before we go into crunch mode.

I have been told that I am absolutely crazy for doing a diet bet from Thanksgiving to Christmas. Maybe I am, but I know I need the most support during those 4 weeks, more than any other 4 weeks in the year. I am terrible about cookie exchanges, and I have one coming up in a few weeks. I know that the accountability will keep me on track during the hardest part of the year, and if you think it would help you too, join us!

We will also have a secret facebook group for all the participants, to offer tips for staying on track!

We would love to have you join us and prove to yourself that you CAN succeed during the hardest time of the year!

  1. Girl we all have our slip ups. Please don't beat yourself up. Just look out at your non scale victories lately. The jeans, shirts, and sweatshirt. You should be damn proud of that!! :)

  2. Oh my goodness. This is all too familiar to me.
    Someone brought doughnuts to work last week and I hid 2 in my coat pockets. No one would have cared that I had 2 doughnuts, but I didn't want anyone to see me eating them. :(
    Moving forward...right? xoxo

  3. I love your honesty. You did right by putting it out there and moving on. Don't beat yourself up over it. What's done is done. Just try to figure out if there is something with your diet that you can do differently and let it go. Don't forget how far you have come and how freaking hot you looked in those jeans!

  4. Sorry you aren't feeling good : /

  5. Good luck with your diet bet over the holidays! Don't get too down about falling off the wagon. It happens to everyone!


  6. Very brave and mature to put it all out there. All of us folks with food obsession have done that a time or three hundred. I know you'll get back on track quickly! Remember the size 16's!

  7. i recently read French Women Don't Get Fat, and even though it's a cliche it's completely changed the way i think about eating. it actually explains what moderation is and how to eat in moderation. i wouldn't take the whole thing to heart, but that's what the majority is about. i recommend you check it out.

    i reviewed it here: http://caitlinmfrost.wordpress.com/2013/11/15/fridayreads-nonfiction-woes/

  8. Darn you internet for erasing my comments the first time I tried to post ;) lol When I first read this I felt the prick of tears come to my eyes and my heart ached at all you would be feeling cause I feel the same. This week I slipped back into old habits and ate an entire thing of pillsbury cookie dough....Twice :( The best thing you could do right now is pick yourself up off the floor , look into a mirror and say "It's ok, I forgive you and I love you" And then keep moving on. Dealing with binge eating is a never ending battle. You are rocking this....This week was just a minor setback :) Have a great rest of the week!

  9. I had to chuckle... and not because it's funny AT ALL, because it isn't... but because I can totally relate. Sorry honey... you're one strong lady and I know this is just a tiny little bump in your road!

  10. It's not easy to come clean and write about this stuff. Good for you for coming clean and another things that's commendable? You are not giving up. Some people would just give themselves free license to do whatever until 2014 and then start their "resolution". The next few weeks will be a little tough considering the holidays and increase of social gatherings but you will try your best! That's all you can hope for.

    Targeting why you are resorting to old habits is key to nipping it in the butt in the coming weeks. Good luck!

  11. I'm going through a similar back and forth process right now. My worst time is the evening, so I'm thinking I need something to fill the time. Reading your blog helps!

  12. I HEAR you. I have used other forms of paying so my husband didnt know I stopped at sonic. I stopped because it was such a danger to binge eating! I have been following you for a while, and I just wanted to say you are one of the blogs that inspired me when I wanted to give up. I had a 24.5 inch change with only losing 2 pounds. I was so mad. I quickly ordered a 24 advocare challenge pack and I am doing it thanksgiving to christmas too! You GOT this girl!

  13. I am so glad I read this blog today. I have had some major issues lately with what I have been eating. I am pregnant and I promised myself I would not use that as a reason to eat whatever I want. Well, that has not happened and I basically chow down whenever the urge hits me and it's rarely things that are the best for me. I have had NO DESIRE for vegetables this pregnancy. But you hand me a box of chocolate covered cherries, or Oreo's and I can polish that off in a couple days. Which doesn't seem terrible, in moderation I suppose, but it has been along with other sugary snacks I want too. I feel horrible that I am doing this, fully expecting to be told I have gestational diabetes at my next doc. appt. I am just happy that you were willing to be open with your food problems, because it really does help us people who read your blog to know we are not the only ones with these issues.

  14. I love your determination. Good luck with your bet through the holidays. You can do this!


I would love to hear from you! Have something to say? Say it here!
