FitKatieB Posted September 28, 2012 Share Posted September 28, 2012 Wow! I had an epic fail. I didn't just slip or stumble, I fell so far from the wagon I'm lost. I have gotten so far in the program-Day 22 with fairly good results. I don't know what happened today. The sugar dragon appeared and I let it take over me. 1 spoonful of almond butter (with added honey and cane sugar) led to another and another and then cookies and chocolate and crying. It was terrible. I feel terrible. I feel ashamed and guilty. I guess years of binge eating and disordered eating are not solved in 22 days. So I'm re-starting. I can't just tack on extra days on the end. I royally $&@-ed up. I need to do it for 30 consecutive days and heal my gut (I have severe IBS) and heal my psychological/emotional issues with food. And the hardest part is going o be telling my boyfriend. It's been hard because he didn't think I could do it and I wanted to prove him wrong so badly. I am thankful for encouraging strangers here, but it's harder fessing up in 'real' life. 1. Prepare! Plan and make my meals at least 2 days in advance. 2. Get rid of the honey and nut butter and nuts. If they're not there, I can't be tempted 3. Stick with the 3 meals a day-no more snacking or SWYPO 4. Ask myself if I'm really hungry or not. Drink a glass of water and do 5 burpees first 5. Everyday remember my list of why I'm doing this (heal my physical and psychological self, get healthy, feel better, lose weight) 6.
