holiday eating and cravings [21 Mar 2008|09:02am]

this is a post to sort of be proud of myself.

Yesterday, the spring equinox, is a holiday/feast day in my religion. A friend of mine came over and we made a large meal or really several large meals. I probably eat more calories than I'd like to admit but I'm proud of myself because I didn't binge. I had two glasses of eggnog, a piece of green year-wheel pizza, and a scotch egg, for feast meal.

For breakfast I ate one plain crescent role and 3 crescent rolls drizzled with my homemade dandelion syrup and a cup of hot tee with a teaspoon and a half of sugar.

For dinner I ate only a left over slice of pizza.

It could have been a whole LOT worse. The pizza was SOOOOO good I could have eaten the whole thing!

Also I've been cutting down on my soda drinking because I used to drink more than a six pack a day. I don't have them in the house anymore. Mostly I drink filtered water, some Gatorade every now and again, and hot tea. I haven't completely cut them from my life I still have one when I'm out or maybe on when I'm at work, but it's down to a 20oz every couple of days, but gods the cravings get soooooooooooooooo bad! it takes everything I have to not drive out and buy one when they hit. Does anyone have experience with this?

since i woke up i have not eaten anything and i have exercised which is really good for me since i hate to work out and i figure that if i give up and decided to b/p atleast i have already burned some calories but hopefully i will be able to make it for the rest of the day.

anyway, do you ever get depressed going shopping for clothes?? i hate it when i find something really nice and it does not fit correctly so yesterday i cheered myself up and i went shoe shopping. i bought 11 pairs of shoes. yes, i know that is a lot but i was on a high. but i find that shoe shopping is so much more better than clothes shopping because even if i gain 10 pounds my feet still look the same and i do not get upset. so i guess my point is that if you are ever feeling down because of the way you look , which i know is probably often, go buy a pair of shoes ( or 11 lol ). and if you do not like shoes as much as i do, try buying accessories or anything that will still look good on you no matter how much you weigh. it will make you feel good.

au revoir

Fasting [14 Aug 2006|03:35pm]

Hi I am curious if anyone in here knows how to keep from getting horrible headaches from not eating when you fast. I tried it yesterday but had a migraine by 7 or so hours.

pizza [26 Jul 2006|02:19am]

today, i took appetite suppressants, washed down with a few pints of water.
so, no hungry at all, i cook a pizza, and quite sensibly eat two small slices... then an hour later chuff the lot down in one go.

fucking idiot. i wasn't even the slightest bit hungry - i just can't say no, or have discipline, or control.

Is it still considered purging if you eat so much you make yourself sick?

Hi. My name is Masha and i'm a compulsive overeater too.Been like that for a loooong time-6 years or more,but since it started when i was a young teenager(the period when you MUST look good) i've managed to control the damage somehow - yes i am till overweight,at 5'2" i am 128 lbs and it looks horrible.i haven't gone to the beach in like 4 years,i am ashamed to undress infront of anybody (family members included). i hate to hide like that all the time ,i hate my cellulite and the stretch marks ...
so the last couple of mothns i've started to do sometthing that helps me not to binge and it works
... well i go out and buy the stuff i crave i go home and i "eat" it - i just chew it (taste it) and spit it out in a basket/cup/bag whatever and none of the junk i've crved goes i my system
after i'm finished i get rid of it
it really helps to kill the cravings and stick to your diet
it is still an ed-behavior and it's said to be addictive (i do it rarely)
it's not the best of advice,but if you are desperate-try it just once but don't let people see you
it helped me a LOT so that's why i'm telling you this
if anybody if offended i'll delete this psot :0

i feel my mindset changing. i dont feel so miserable and helpless about my weight anymore. i feel positive that i can and have made the decision to be healthier and get fitter and i hope that i will follow it through. I have a number of things i can use for goals - 2 weeks; party, end of school parties in about 6 weeks, global gathering festival!!! in about 8/9 or so weeks.

so it should be motivating. Also my stick thin sister has taken to wandering around in hardly any clothes and it gets worse as the weather gets warmer so maybe that will be an inspiration (oh as well as this guy i like..hehe :])

well hope everyone is doing well!

Wow, never thought it existed. I've been reading on this ED for awhile and I know this is what I have. It makes me even more depressed, and I eat more. I was thought to be anorexic last summer (I ate 1400 calories every day!! Well, I worked out for 2 hours a day). Then I kind of morphed into gaining back 30 lbs through binge eating during my stressful senior year. I'd really like to overcome this and so MAy 1st and on starts my new day.

Do you guys feel that if you eat one bad thing not on your diet list, even if it's like a bite, it triggers a binge episode? I know it does for me.

I'm considering turning to the treadmill whenever i feel a binge coming on. It would majorly help with losing the weight too.

I'm fucking depressed and eating like crazy.

it is now 5am my time...

Since 2am I have consumed
1 italian sausage with sour krout on a potato bun
1 organic beef hotdog, with turkey chilli on a potato bun
1 organic beef hotdog with sour krout on a potato bun
32oz of gatorade

I am trying my hardest not to go fix another even though I really feel like I NEED one.
I am most likely about to go drink at least on can of soda since I am now out of gatorade...

god sometimes I think cutting was better than this... but I know if I do that everyone around me will freak out... and it's spring so the long sleeves are a dead give away.

Fucking Diet "Snacks" [25 Mar 2006|12:37pm]

Forgive me I'm about to RANT...

I'm so sick and tired of these "individually wrapped", 100 calorie a pack, boxes of 20 packages of cookies.

If I could fuggin stop at 2 cookies I wouldn't need to be on a diet anyway!

This is half the problem I have with restricting... I can't just eat a little. When I want a cookie I don't want A cookie I want a whole freakin package of chips A'hoy with milk. At least I grew up drinking skim so I never crave Whole milk.

I've been trying so hard, and I was really good for a couple of weeks and I had my calorie intake down to 1300 a day but averaging at least 1000 everyday. And when I'd feel the urge to binge I'd grab a bag of carrot sticks, a half head of iceberg lettuce, a granny smith apple, a few tablespoons of dressing, and a tablespoon of parmesan cheese. Which is a lot of food for only a few hundred calories. I'd save the carrot sticks for after the salad so that when I was hungry again right afterwards I would have something to shove in my mouth.

I've been using gum a lot too. I've also been taking an unlit cigg out and pretending to smoke it.

I've been feeling so guilty if I eat any snacks/sweets that I've been trying to at the very least buy the "reduced calorie/fat" ones, but that just pisses me off more.

Half the time I can't have the lower calorie stuff because I have reactions to Splenda and Aspartame. And I hate having to choose between a migraine from aspartame, stomach cramps from Splenda, or an extra 50 calories a bite.

Not to mention that diet/healthy food costs more. Soda costs less than sports drinks, sports drinks cost less than juice, juices made from concentrate or % juice drinks cost less than 100% juice drinks, and specialty drinks like V8 splash smoothies or Diet shakes cost even more. Read meat costs less than chicken, chicken costs less than fish, and it gets even cheaper if you buy the fatty read meats rather than buying lean meats. Lean cuisine costs like $7 a dinner, healthy choice is like $3-4 a dinner, and Banquet meals are like $0.97. All the reduced calorie snacks/sweets are all name brand and even more expensive than the regular name brand ones. WHY the fuck should I have to pay $1.50 more for a 50 calorie reduction? There are just times when I feel you have to be rich to be healthy or loose weight. I wont even bother to go on the price increase if you should happen to not want chemicals, preservatives, dyes, and hormones in your food.

I feel like I'm throwing away money when I buy "fresh" produce. For one it's like a race with time to manage to eat it before it goes bad. Unless you buy organic or local grown there is no telling what kind of chemicals are on them 'cause a lot of the countries we get our out of season produce from do not have bans on chemicals like DDT. And I found out some very interesting info from the Department of Agriculture the other day...

"Many vegetables begin losing some of their vitamins when harvested. Nearly half the vitamins may be lost within a few days unless the fresh produce is cooled or preserved. Within 1 to 2 weeks, even refrigerated produce loses half or more of some of its vitamins. The heating process during canning destroys from one-third to one-half of vitamins A and C, thiamin, and riboflavin."
from the USDA Complete Guide to Home Canning

So if this produce was picked in Chile or Costa Rica then shipped to us at least 2 or 3 days, Inventoried at some where house, trucked cross country to my grocery store, and then sits on the grocery store shelf for even 3 or 4 more days... We are at least talking a weak and usually more since it's been picked... so the vitamin content has to be nothing... Not to mention that I can't eat it all right after I get it from the grocery so it sits in my fridge for a few more days.

I’m feeling like there is no way to win… like I should just quit trying to watch what I eat.
