I've been having a really good week, up until today that is. I ate myself sick for the first time in a while, but I'm trying to concentrate on the positive. One binge isn't going to hurt me.

I haven't gotten around to meditating yet. It's a bit hard living at home. I rarely have the house to myself so there's never a good time where I won't be interrupted. I still plan on trying it though, as soon as I have the chance. I'm thinking a guided meditation might be the best place to start. Anyone know of anything online? Even without the meditation though, I seem to be getting a bit better. I don't know if it's because we haven't had anything tempting in the house or my willpower is getting stronger. I'd like to believe it's the latter. Keeping busy hasn't hurt either. I've had much less time to obsess about food.

I'm done with the whole "starting tomorrow" idea but I think I have enough confidence now to know that I can get throughout a day without binging. Let's see where the next week takes me.

And thanks for all your encouragement. You guys make a difference!


  1. yay for you! lovin the positive vibes from this post. i love meditation havnt done it for ages tho. might look it up and do it too. keep getting stronger darling. xo

  2. I love your positive attitude. Thanks for the kind words on my blog.

    I am not very good at sitting down and having 10 or 15 or 20 minutes of uninterrupted time to meditate, but what I did learn from my attempts is how to take 30 seconds to just focus on the breath and come back to the present. Most of my mental flurry is about things that haven't happened, can't do anything about, or are external to the core of who I am... So I just breathe and accept and be present. Literally I only do it for about 30 seconds at a time, but it has been life changing. Maybe on the days you don't meditate, you can just sit and be present for a few seconds. Good luck!
