@aowens1785 Congrats on Getting married.. To be able to run 5k even inconsistency is pretty amazing if you ask me! I couldn't even think about doing that..ever... I do not think my body could manage that.. so be very proud of yourself for that. Isnt it hard not to be our own worst critics?! ugh.. But I hear you with the bikini thing.. trust me.. I even ordered a thong bikini for even more motivation and believe me.. there is no way in hell I am getting into it LOL.. but I am going to a adults only resort and its quite risque so I thought I would give it a go...
When you say Binge I can totally relate.. For some reason I cannot seem to do anything in moderation.. with me it seems it is all or nothing.. and I am so up and down all the time because of it.
This is why I started to count calories and actually sticking to it (fingers crossed).. I am now on day 8 of MFP and even though I have been using this site for years I have never actually used it more than a few days in a row...nor have I used the community part of it.. and as silly as this might sound, when I quit smoking cigarettes 8 years ago, coming to an online support group was the only thing that eventually helped me quit after 9 failed attempts, so I thought I would give the online support group another chance again. So far so good.
My issues was I would tell myself that I could not eat certain foods, I realize now that I cannot deal with restrictions. Plus whenever I would start a diet I would binge on everything bad possible the week before.. eat foods I would never even consider eating normally.
And for the record.. my stomach is what I do not like about myself.. my profile picture is me a year ago on my 35th birthday.... I am 10 lbs heavier almost now. And its all in my belly. And I find my arms and back are flabby too..
