omigosh! I havent been able to get back on track for almost 2 weeks now! Its gone, all gone. I fell off the wagon hard at a festival 1.5 weeks ago, ate loads of carbs, deep fried everything, and now i am am back in to old bad habits. I feel motivated (right now)because i came here to read what others are reporting. I've been down this awful road before though, motivated in the morning, giving up by mid afternoon, crying by bedtime.
Being back on the carbs is creating real issues for my colitis too, and I still cant seem to stop myself.
I seem to be eating for boredom. I really need to find something to do with myself now that Im working part time.
Its 8 am here, and Im going to make myself a "to do " list so I have no free time today. isn't it awful that I cant be trusted with free time? That I will eat the wrong food to the point where i will actually hurt myself? What is up with that?
Here i go again with the "today is another new day " routine. Been here before.
What a depressing post huh?
I will think of all of you through the day to help me stay on track. Once I get a couple of days behind me, I'm usually good to go. I just need those first couple of days,.

Elkay- I have had two- and three- week periods where my weight bobbles around the same numbers, and then down I go. Sometimes I can relate it to over-eating on my Up Days, sometimes it just IS. Either way, my Down Days in general are so easy, that staying the same for a few weeks while eating all I want (or more) is a far better place than I was, so I'll take it.
Hope you go down soon.
TeriAnn- that's rough. Good luck getting back to where you feel good about what you are eating. Are there 'good foods' you love that you could overeat on for a few days, so that even if you are still eating too much/for boredom/etc, at least it is only good stuff and will bring your insulin levels back to normal? Sometimes I let myself eat massive quantities, and as long as it is good stuff, I don't feel so bad about it.
I had some stress eating yesterday, and for what is probably a silly reason, but it is what it is. And it was an Up Day, so it is all good. Ready for my Down Day though: I feel so stodgy.
In other news, I felt like crap during crossfit endurance today. Wanted to keel over and die during the last 600-m run. We did 3 x 200-m, 3 x 400-m, and 3 x 600-m. By the last two 600-m rounds, I was no longer sprinting. And my legs literally had no strength in them near the end. I think it's because yesterday was a DD, and I only ate 100 calories. I ate before the workout (which is bad since that pre-workout insulin spike suppressed HGH production, thereby inhibiting all that extra fat burning from the sprints), but it was still terrible. Had I not eaten, I probably would have died.
