Binging

I have a really huge problem. Whenever I cheat on a diet, I end up binging. So instead of just eating 1 piece of cake, I end up eating the whole thing. I get so discouraged about the first piece of cake, so I basically just give up. This is why I can never stick to a diet.

I think everyone struggles at the beginning with situations like this but you can take control... easy? No! Replace a piece of cake for some sweet strawberries or a sweet taste mullerlight? Squirty cream and sugar free jelly is also lovely. I also had cubed melon in my fridge to snack on later in the evenings.

You have to battle yourself at first but once you have done that you will find further down the line you actually don't want too much.

Believe in you, think about your goals... create a vision board (about your goals) and put it on your fridge and or goodies cupboard.

Have you got children? That I found hardest, I stopped buying things I like a lot for a while too.

Thank you for your words of encouragement. Yes, I do have children. This is a real challenge since we love to bake and try all kinds of fun recipes. They always complain that I end up eating half the cookies.

Don't beat yourself up over it! That is the first step to making a healthy change. Then, just take each and every single day like it's a new one. Keep in mind that the more your body consumes of sweet things, the more you will crave.

I have cut back on the baking too. Hubby complains sometimes that I don't bake like I used to. So I remind him, "You mean, like I did when we were HEAVY??". Haha, that usually calms him down.

I find the biggest problem many of us face is thinking that we have to "do it perfectly all the time" and when we don't, we beat ourselves up. It's hard to be disciplined and yet be fair to ourselves. You're not alone LizzyIzzy!

this is mine problem too!! I do not think that i will be able to ever change this side of me!!! So i found the way out, maybe it will help you too! First of all simply do not buy all that fat stuff (cakes, ice-cream, chips etc). If you feel like going to die without a cake right now...well..then eat it! but eat those fat stuff only once in few weeks! make a schedule for yourself and set the dates during the month when you can eat something forbidden. This way you won't feel guilty!

My husband makes it difficult to control what we buy. He can eat anything and not put on a pound! So he considers it unfair when I refuse to buy the junk food that he likes.

I have the same problem with my husband! Although he has put on a little bit of weight he mainly gets away with eating what he wants. I make him a good meal and then straight afterwards he is in the cupboards searching for junk food. The other night he had dinner and then TWO big boxes of chocolate fingers!

Yes, agreed about the husband issue. Even though we both lost weight together years ago, he puts it on a LOT less than I do. So he can eat more of what is not so great without putting it back on. Knowing that we both don't want to get heavy again helps, but he can cheat way more often than I can.
