New way of eating that I've not done before, miss binging though

Hello.

I'm a calorie counter and just realised that since I started my current journey back in June I have never 'lost control'. I have had cheat days but everything I ate has been counted and I've pulled back in the following days to even it out. I've been trying to do what I am currently doing for years, which is to learn some control. Thats the thing that's irking me slightly though. I've felt bored recently and its not because of the plan I'm on, its becuse I'm no longer binging without thought. That phrase "being overwight is hard, losing weight is hard, chose your hard" has never felt so true. I feel the desire to binge but know how difficult it is to recover after, so would rather keep my new found control in charge.

I totally agree with you, it’s not easy either way. But we are choosing for the struggle to equate to something positive. Our old habits are so ingrained in us that it’s going to take time for our new normal to feel like just that. The NSVs are the thing that keep me boosted rather than the weight loss I am finding. You are doing great. 😉

Old habits are the most difficult thing to shake off! As hard as it is to keep control I know I prefer this way of living to the old way

Hi, just wanted to say well done you. Well done for loosing 3 st and also for not binging in such a long time. I have lost 2 1/2st, the same amount still to loose, sadly only 6 days without a binge. I hate the feeling of being out of control and waking up the next day filled with self loathing. When I first started LCHF in May I managed to go 5 weeks without a binge and that’s the longest time to date. I still can’t break the habit of calorie counting, although I tend to loose count after about 5000. 🙂

Very kind thank you. As long as you're still able to refocus after the session of too much food you're winning. That's strength I'm lacking at times which is probably why I'm so fearful of having a full on blowout. You're doing super

Thank you. Going to the gym helps me to refocus. For that 5 week period I didn't have any cravings for chocolate, biscuits, anything sweet basically. Then I had a blow out over my birthday and the cravings have come back. Never mind, I find that the support on this site is amazing, it’s helped a lot, good luck with the rest of your journey😊

Well done on noticing with the binging and keeping it in check. Sounds like you are really on top of it now and able to stop yourself which is fantastic 👍There's so much about bad food choices that make us then feel bad and turning that around can be hard.
