  • 14,045 for me, yay day 1!
  • Wishing you success in this venture, 90 days seems like an achievable goal.
  • A bit bummed out, haven't been able to walk the last two days due to torrential down pours here in Coastal NC. :( Ate well today! I grilled up a chicken breast after rolling it in yummy spices and herbs, cut it up in four strips, skewered them before grilling, and had yummmy meat on a stick with ramen noodles! Even made my…
  • Holy crap! Not only did NOT turn out to be 900 million thousand degrees out today, it's actually only around the mid 80's, which means I actually got to enjoy my walk today, but also, I managed to break through my 3.5 mph barrier and hit 4 mph! Now I'm completely drenched and can't wait to jump in the shower, but I'm…
  • Competition with myself....that must be why I suck in my gut every time I pass someone on my walking route, I'm certain that's the reason! Speaking of which, I'm out the door for a quick morning walk before work. Not looking forward to any walks this weekend, the weather channel is calling for 900 million degrees this…
  • Awesome day today! Got tons of work done at my job, super productive! Now, getting ready to hit an evening walk planned. Looks like a gross day is coming tomorrow, according to the weather channel, so got to enjoy today while it's still here! ;)
  • Morning all! Getting ready to hit a morning walk before work, didn't eat so great yesterday, here's hoping today will be better!
  • I absolutely eat as a means of maintaining the illusion that I'm in control. I'm fairly certain that comes from my relationship with food as a child. The one place in our house where people weren't nasty, mean, or belittling, was in the kitchen. That became my "safe" place. When my mother was in mood where she wasn't too…
  • Had a "sort of" yummy dinner tonight. I've been wanting to try out this recipe for using an avocado instead of mayo to make a chicken salad. Well, sadly I got out of work late tonight and just wasn't in the mood to cook some chicken and make a chicken salad, and the avocados at the store weren't all that ripe, they need a…
  • Just back to MFP for a couple of weeks now, after being gone for nearly a year. Saw this thread on my feed today and thought I'd check it out. Have had a good day thus far. Just got in from a 5 mile walk. Trying to figure out what I'm going to eat for dinner tonight.
  • Great post and awesome responses! It's so amazing that you were able to identify what feelings were going on during this binge, that's so important. It's important because the next time they come up I can do something different, and there were several great suggestions already on this thread from folks. The good news is,…
  • Right there with you both, April and Gael. No answers here, but loads of experience. First thing off the bat, April, that just jumped out at me. "I'm guilty of being an emotional eater..." I know, or at least think I know, what you meant by that; however, one of the first things I had to start doing was take a look at the…
  • I know alot of folks in OA who struggle with nuts, particularly salted nuts as a binge food. I know, for me, almonds are a emotional comfort food and I will eat a whole container of them in one sitting. It's not a salt thing for me, but healthyhappyconfidence, it might have been a salt thing for you. If you've been eating…
  • Right there with you! I'm an awesome starter, phenomenal planner, fabulous organizer...follow through....not so much....dismount....disaster, every time. I'm back on the wagon, again, and hoping to stick with it this time. I've got tons of promises I've made myself about "this time," but the reality is, none of that really…
  • I've been writting in a journal for years, most of them are actual pen and paper, several blank journals they sell at bookstores, but over the last 5 years or so, I've started writting on my computer, but not anything I post online. Writting on my computer has worked Ok; however, I've found that when I go back and re-read…
  • Read this article yesterday and nearly spit my coffee all over my keyboard, about 20 times. NOT a safe read with a cup of coffee, or any other beverage. I'm certain the author of the article would totally be on board with this thread. :) http://www.huffingtonpost.com/kelly-maclean/surviving-whole-foods_b_3895583.html
  • It's been my experience that when I try to distract myself from eating, I end up eating. The emtional eating, for me, is a distraction from dealing with the emotions I'm feeling. So, I can't really distract myself from the thing that my mind/body is using as a distraction in the first place. I've found that when I'm…
  • I liturally ask myself that question, that's where it starts. I'm already done with dinner, it's 1/2 an hour, maybe an hour before bed time, just sitting there watching TV and suddenly I'm hungry. I want some chips or some sweets. I know I just ate a full meal only a few hours ago, so I'm not really hungry. I ask myself,…
  • Your food log is not viewable, so not many folks are going to be able to give any specific feedback. I lost 5 lbs my first 4 weeks on MFP, eating between 1200-1300 cals and exercising 3 times a week for 90 mins a week, and I'm pretty sure I didn't even make the exercise goal that first couple of weeks. Eye-balling portion…
  • Dr. Billi Gordon is a Ph.D. who writes a blog on Psychology Today. Here's a link to his latest blog: http://www.psychologytoday.com/blog/obesely-speaking/201312/about-new-years-resolution-diet He's really good about posting a new article each week and they are all really great reads on the newest medical info on dealing…
  • http://www.youtube.com/results?search_query=workout+videos+cardio&sm=1 I just typed "workout videos" into the youtube search bar and this is the first page that popped up. The first three to four videos are 50-30 mins long. I post that, not to be a smart *kitten*, but just to point out that several folks mentioned the…
