Started couch to 5k. Started following 5:2 diet principles. List half stone first week. Starting Week 2 run 1. Off work today, walked my dogs feeling good this morning. Then had a cup of tea. Then the binge happened. When it hits me it's uncontrollable. Now I'm sat on sofa watching loose women Archie and Rosie either side of me (my dogs - false love they are looking for crumbs!!). I am feeling devastated with myself. I know I need support - hoping by writing this and sharing my embarrassment with you all it will put me back on track. This is my biggest problem - psychologically my brain is saying "have a full blown binging day" however my guilty side is saying get on cross trainer. There's a small part saying "make yourself Ill". In my younger days I had "issues with food" then I had children gained a lot of weight. Then January 2011 fractured ankle and vowed I would lose weight. Lost 6 stones in weight. April 2013 had two puppy labs, although walking with them not got heart rate going. Consequently have put 3 stones on. Then came across NHS health choices. Got a Ball to go to in February and will need to look good in ball gown. I've gone off track and rambling my question is what are your coping mechanisms for stopping binging? How do you cope after should you succumb? I need help and support please.
