My ranges are fine, fat/calories/carbs/protein but I still find myself eating things that are trigger foods. I have had Jiffy frosting mix sitting in the cabinet for a year. Last night I was in scavenging mode and found myself mixing up frosting and eating it by the spoonful. I have decided to look at the positives of the situation though. Last night I mixed the frosting and ate it, but after 5 or 6 spoonfuls I stopped. I walked to the sink and I ran the frosting down the drain. In the past I could have eaten the entire package and possibly made another one. As it was I ate under two servings of frosting. I wish I hadn't hit the sugar but am very grateful that I pulled myself back from the brink.
The good news for the day is that 36 hours into antibiotics I am beginning to feel a bit better than I was. I am hoping to recover quickly from this nasty bronchitis and get back into shape before we head to Disney World next month.
I am truly a mom over the top! I have been a compulsive overeater for most of my life. The first time I remember specific over the top eating behaviors was when I was 13 years old. That was 24 years ago. I started on this journey to health, to abstinence, to sanity in May, 2010. I hope that by blogging I can help, not only myself, but help others to know that they aren't alone. My tools on this journey are Overeaters Anonymous and SparkPeople.
