Overate and feeling it



Recommended Posts

I lost my damn mind and pigged out on "cookie brownies", chips, and goldfish crackers. Like 1,000 calories worth in an hour. I usually don't even eat 1,000 calories in a whole day and I almost never eat that kind of crap.

I feel terrible mentally but I might honestly feel worse physically. Kind of that feeling where you wish you could throw up so you'd just feel better.

I'm going to lay down and take my punishment for what I've done. Blegh.

Tomorrow is a new day.

forgiveness starts within - forgive but don't forget.

hope you have a better day going forward.

when you have a quiet moment see if you can find the reason you "lost my dam mind". was it an event or some other external pressure. You may not find the reason but at least look back and see if the trigger is there.

wishing you well

I suppose many of us have had those days. Just don't make it a habit.

I agree with Allwet..if you find what triggered your binge, you can learn a how to avoid having a repeat " losing of your damn mind.. lol😁

All seriousness it's ok to slip,, but never ok to quit. Start over tomorrow,, you got this

Whatever makes you feel badly, stop doing
Whatever gives you deep joy, this you should continue
And that is a simple, yet effective. bit of wisdom.

Egh. I've done that too. Not to that extreme I think but just that mindless eating and stuffing bite after bite. I hope you can get past it and it doesn't happen again.

Hopefully you'll remember how it felt and not do it again

I know exactly what my trigger was... anxiety. And what better way to handle that than eating, right?!

I've talked to my husband about it so he can help me refocus and calm down. Anxiety is a trigger for me and I know yet. Yesterday it got the best of me, but it's not winning today!

Thank you all for the support. My punishment continues today as the scale is up almost 2 full pounds overnight (I'm a daily weigher) as I retain Water and my body revolts against yesterday's torture.

I repeat my mantra everyday and especially if I'm tempted to eat a bad food or too much...."no food tastes as good as being thin feels!" 🌞

I have had several days like this and am only 4 months post op. it makes you feel like absolute crap, mentally and physically. All we can do is forgive ourselves and move on. Maybe another activity to take our minds off wanting to eat our feelings or out of boredom. now I just need to practice what I preach lol

        :) I give you permission to stand up every hour from your seat, kinda jiggle and shake and move your legs and sing along to whomever is on the screen at the time. :)

        My boyfriend might sneak away and leave me at the theater if this happens

      4. FluffyChix

        I doubt that. :D I'm thinking he likes livin' on Fantasy Island too much. :D

      5. Orchids&Dragons

        That's wonderful! I have trouble sitting still in the movies now. (I even fidgeted through the last John Wick, and it was awesome) I can't imagine sitting still this soon after surgery. More power to ya! Have fun!

        It will be interesting to watch as this theory develops. Thanks for posting!

      Feel like it's time for a status update, I haven't been on here regularly in a while and I need to keep my mindset focused on my goals.
      I haven't weighed myself in ~ 3 weeks.  I think I'm becoming the opposite of "obsessive" about tracking my progress and it could cause me some issues.  The good thing is that there have still been quite a number of NSV's happening that is telling me that I'm still progressing without knowing what the scale says.
      First one is that a belt I bought about 5 weeks ago because all my other belts were too big is also on the last hole so I'll have to buy yet another belt again.  second, I bought new jeans about a month ago and I have a lot more slack in the waist than I did when I purchased them.  I also boarded a plane and had about 8 inches of slack in the belt.  Finally, I hit my goal last week of being able to ride go-carts with my kids.  The last time I tried about 4 years ago, I had to leave because I couldn't fit in the harness.  This was sweet victory and I showed those two how it was done on the race course!!  😈

      I just looked through all my old pants after my pre-op pants started getting to big. Keep in mind that I wear men's pants (usually cargos) because I am so tall 5'10"/5'11" ish. I also find that men's baggies tend to fit me better.
      I started out at a 44 in waist pant and quickly found that I was back down to my 42's. So even when thise got to be too big, I had to start pulling old clothes out of storage. After finding my 38's, I thought that these would not yet fit, but when I tried them on, they fit perfectly. I also found some older pants that now fit better than I remembered. What a relief! It's not like I can pop down to the store like I could do in the US and the styles here in Sweden are all skinnt jeans which I cant stand. I also found some 36's, but I'm not mentally ready to try those on yet. The biggest challenge will be buying women's clothing again.

      slow and steady wins the race.  don't get discouraged and just keep at it. Let your sleeve do its job and try not to stress yourself out.
      hope you are all having a great summer and enjoying what your sleeve has given you.
      just got back from a wedding in OR. and man am i afraid to get on the scale

        Great reminder about how fast you can lose weight. The mind games we play with ourselves are the worst.
