pulling socks up

and cutting the crap.

this binging is stopping.

dukan diet.


with a little sugar from fruit smoothies. i know you can't on dukan, but i read this today.

Did you know that Refined Table Sugar is actually now CLASSIFIED AS A DRUG because:

1- Eating sugar makes you physically CRAVE MORE of it.

2- Eating sugar causes your body to release pleasure chemicals  as it stimulates the same part in the brain that cocaine and heroine use does, 

3- When you try to 'come off' of sugar you have withdrawal symptoms equal in severity to someone who is going through withdrawal from cocaine or heroin.

fucking heroin.

and i know it. i hurt without sugar. so i'll try to wean myself off it.

i had 2 binge free days last week. this week i aim to beat that.

ana ... i beg of you. help me.

today was going great, burned 300+ at the gym, didn't eat too much.
then i went to see Kate
she made me feel crap
i binged.

a tub of ice cream, 4 puff pastry mince pies, several packets of crisps and a few bowls of rice crispies.
what the fuck is wrong with me? that is so disgusting and messed up!!!
why is it that i get all worried about calories in a standard meal, and will freak out if theres a bit of cheese or something on it, but when i am in binge mode, any thing goes.
i refuse to let my mouth be a waste bin any more.

but Kate discharged me. i don't have to answer to her any more. i don't have to have my weekly lecture about "alarm bells" "slippery slope" and "sitting on the fence with one foot in your illness and one foot in recovery"

i feel so crap, i even cried. which never happens. probably because i am cutting down on my citalopram so i can wean myself onto venlafaxine.
i am just so unhappy at this weight.
i am going on the slimfast diet properly.
not eating anything apart from slimfast and soup.

i'll do this for the rest of the week. next tuesday i am going on a cruise with my friend G from hospital. hopefully that will kick start some more "normal" eating, although going to Dublin didn't really do that. I just wont buy any snacks so i never have food on me.

i think my goal of 100 pounds by new years eve is a bit unrealistic.
but i will get there one day soon, i promise.

big fat failure

i refuse to have that stamped on me any more.

so my november weight loss plans went down the drain. 100lb by the end of november? no, try 114. although the scales did go up to 118 at one horrific point, so i think i've done okay to get back to 114 while still binging every now and then. talking of binging, i tried to make a plan - to have a planned controlled 1000 calorie binge, and then burn at least 500 at the gym. kind of went to plan. i burned the 500, but obviously the 1000 calories are now probably nearer 2 or 3 thousand as i binged after the gym too. genius.

i was thinking of maybe allowing myself one binge day a week. so i wont feel so guilty and then i can spend the rest of the week preparing for it. so that was today. we'll see how that goes.

i've bought some appetite controllers from boots. they have some fiber in them that swells to 50 times its original size so helps you feel full. hopefully they work they cost £25! i also have these other pills which seem to be working so far. just not fast enough!!

as citalopram isn't working for me, i've been prescribed venlafaxine. i'm hoping the transition to that might curb my appetite a bit.

last night i promised my boyfriend that i wouldn't cut anymore. i intend to keep that promise.
now i am promising you that i will be 100lb by new years eve, and that i will cut down my binging till i stop.

i fully intend to keep that promise too.
