the thing that always help me is this quote, "what you eat in private, shows in public" i do really well through the week at work, and then the weekend comes. i just always try to remember that quote and make healthier eating choices, or i exercise more those two days if i eat worse. another thing is meal prep, if you only go to the store once and buy healthy food that is the only options you have at home. So if you plan out meals for the week and make healthy options at the store, which is a feat in itself sometimes, i always try to eat before going to the store that way i dont wanna buy a bunch of junk. but i tell myself, if i dont have it at home, i wont eat it. helps me out a ton.

I've been struggling with eating bad at night, like 500 to 1000 calories. I do great during the day, but 8:00 hits and I'm like a starving animal. I eat cookies, ice cream and chocolate. I'm craving it. I will go a few days without eating at night but never more than 5 days. I know that if I don't have that stuff in the house, it will help tremendously. But it seems that every time I start doing good, somebody brings some kind of junk food here and I don't have my cravings under control yet. So I just keep failing. I've told my parents and I've told my husband to tell his parents (they mainly speak bosnian so I can't communicate well with them) to not bring anything over but they don't listen.

I am finally back to losing after I spent a full week stalled with a minor gain at the end - I was sick for 2 weeks and then had to curb the rebound.
I used to be a total binge eater - and honestly still am when not actively controlling it. The things I do personally to manage it without feeling horrible:
- I treat a day as a calendar day - 12am-11:59pm. The second it ticks midnight, it's a new day and I can eat (if I want to) without guilt. It made it way easier when I first started because I would feel like i was starving at night, and knowing I just had to wait till midnight and not the next day was motivating and achievable.
- As I went on it became easier not to need the midnight re-start, and it became more of an incentive to not eat then because it meant more calories during waking hours the following 'day'. This has really helped curb my late night snacking over time, but I also don't feel super guilty if I do.
Easter was hard! I ate so much with my family but I refused to feel guilty about it because it was my first real cheat day in almost a month and I already seem to have bounced back from it!
Something I think is really good for me with motivation and cravings - I actually stock up on small chocolates (right now it's mini solid easter eggs which are 33 calories each - it used to be m&ms which I would have 10 of at a time = 34 calories) - and I let myself have one or two every day - but only if my weight has gone down. If my weight was the same or higher than my previous weigh in, then I cut out the extra calories - it is great because I don't binge on a whole block of chocolate because I get a little every day, and when I restrict it I know it's because I was careless, so it's motivation to get on the horse again

I am a little discouraged today. I feel that something is off somehow. I exercise a lot, I know. I try to get at least 10000 steps in as per what my dr said. I have a challenge because when my husband chooses food, it is usually fast food and there are not always choices that are good, but I still choose things that are within the parameters of my caloric goals. I could probably make some other choices, but sometimes I just don't. I am extremely worn out and a little stressed over the situation with my husband. The exercise helps. I can't understand and I don't know if I am exercising too much or not enough. I don't think that I eat enough some days. I really thought I would have lost more (not much more) than I have. I am not sure what to do. I am afraid of letting up on exercise and gaining and messing up my blood sugar progress. I am not going to give up, nor am I going to cut corners and do something potentially detrimental to my health and myself. Any ideas? Support would really be nice, even if you don't have any comments!! Thank you!!
