So, I've been avoiding this post since yesterday morning because I'm not proud of what I've done these past few days.

I've eaten. A. Lot. In fact today, I've eaten so that my stomach physically hurts.

Yesterday's weigh-in was a gain because I ate a lot on Friday. I had ZERO self control. Yesterday was much of the same. Snacking has become a hobby of mine this weekend.

I feel gross. It feels like my stomach is about to explode.

And the worst part? I don't know why I did it. I don't like how I feel. I don't like how I look. And I didn't even work out to try to feel better.

I don't get it. I don't know why. It makes me sad.

Time to get my act together...


  1. Take a step back and re-examine your goals. Try to think about the triggers and WHY you are eating. Think about your goals and whether or not your choices are leading you to your goals. And maybe now isn't the right time to be on your weight-loss journey. Maybe you just aren't ready to get healthy - and that's TOTALLY okay!! You need to do what's right for you, and you need to fight for what you want. We are all here to support you.

  2. Sometimes I feel like I eat just because I like food. But through blogging and self-reflection I figured that's not the case, there's always something triggering my compulsive eating. And even when I know what's up it can be hard to stop.
    What's important is that you get back on track so you can be proud of what you do from now on. If at all possible, try to figure why you felt like eating so it won't happen again. That could take time though, it took me years to figure out I ate when doing homework not because I like to snack but because I hate doing homework.
    WIth a little patience and being able to let yourself feel your emotions when you're eating compulsively, it will come to you.
