    You saw it. Now just keep a look out for when it's coming on... And be aware of what you're feeling when it creeps up on you.

    It's ok. We're all suspect of binges!
    At least, that is what I told myself this morning after waking up from a fried chicken, fried okra, mashed potato, and honey butter biscuit meltdown.
    Just know that you can still come back from it by making smart choices for the rest of the day. And tomorrow is a fresh start all together!

    Has something recently happened that sent you running to food? That has happened to me more times than I can count. I know that mindless eating---eating without serious conscious thought on my part--contributed to my weight issues. Are you an emotional eater?

    Whoa there........don't beat yourself up. It happened, get over it and move on. Don't let it ruin the rest of the day. Keep on keepin' on.

    Because you're human! Just don't let it be an excuse to eat even more today...remind yourself of your goal. I always like to think about what choice the skinny me would make and then do that.

    Stress causes me to do the same thing. Shake it off and get back on the wagon. Maybe you can rethink your strategy for managing your meals, and stress, or what ever other trigger caused the binge.

    Blimey carb attack. it is done. Now log it. Exercise some of it off. Drink lots of water. Remember how it makes you feel. Forgive yourself.

    Next time you feel weak, remember the feeling. Remember you are in control. You chose to eat all that food. Next time you will choose not to.

    youre not a loser...dont speak negativity into your life.....you know how you feel when a binge is coming on...choose a healthy activity or healthy food to eat if you want to binge....it's mind over matter....keep your head and heart in the fight, dont give up=)

    Don't wait till tomorrow hon....get back on the wagon on your next meal. Also, See if you can burn at least some of those that you ate. Today is my first day and I ate what I was suppose to but in addition I also ate nutella and crackers lol >.< Which means an extra trip to the gym for me.

    I have been doing so well too... I recently had my 21st birthday and stopped counting calories but woke up this morning and decided to get back on track did so good untill lunch time and BAM this just happened...
    I do like to eat my feeling well that was before but changed my eating habits... this hasn't happened for ages. Not sure why today it's happened. Especially since I have been eating more than I usually do since it was my bday last week.
    ugh this is terrible :(

    Eh, count it as a mistake, learn from it, and move on. Not the end of the world. Next time you'll know better, just don't give up.

    Definitely agree with this! If it is something I've binged on before or something I can see myself binging on later it's not allowed in my house!
