Re: Out of control
Oct 25, 2001
I really have to work on my self-talk. I'm getting better at it though. I have a tendency to try and eat too little between binges. I've been working on telling myself that I'd better eat enough if I want to put off/ avoid the next binge.

Affirmations really help me to. I feel so much better just telling myself that I am already something that I want to be. Then I have to try and live up to what I tell myself that I am! For instance some of my affirmations are-

I am at peace with the fact that there is nothing that
I can do to change the past. I choose to make positive changes today and know that I control my future.

I feel comfortable and at home my body. I enjoy moving and getting exercise whenever possible.

I am responsible for my life and always maintain the power I need to be positive and have joy, despite all other factors in my life.

I am always productive and my work is always recognized positively by myself and others.

I can imagine my life the way that I want it, free of food compulsions and comfortable with myself, and therefore have the power to achieve this life.
I am finished blaming others, situations, and myself for the way that I eat. I will take action minute-by-minute, hour-by-hour, and day-by-day until I can eat normally again.
“Where there’s a will, there’s a way.” I have the power to achieve anything that I really want and push myself to get!

I am open, honest, and completely myself around all other people!

I like being in new social situations and am comfortable meeting new and different people!

I am adventurous, spontaneous, outgoing and fun. I am always up for a challenge and willing to try new things.

“Seek and you shall find.” I have the ability to develop a close relationship with God, my creator. I look for Him in all things.

I speak positively about myself and my situations.

I lead a healthy, fun, and active lifestyle.

I enjoy being around others and developing my friendships.
People enjoy being around me, too, and I always have a good time around friends.

I am an energetic, optimistic, and joyful person with a good sense of humor.

I enjoy exercising, eating right, and taking care of my health.

I know what needs to be done and never put things off that can just as easily be accomplished in the present.

My life has a purpose and I have goals that I am working for and growing closer to achieving every day.

Anyway, thanks for asking how I am :)! I have actually been doing very well. Today is day 3 with no binges/purges! Last week I did it every single day so I have more of a drive to do better this week because I am sick of wasting all of my time eating and puking. Plus, tomorrow's Friday :)!

When I have cravings I have been able to work through them some how. I just ask myself where giving into cravings (even just a bite) leads me, and I face that the answer is that it always leads me to a binge. I am just trying to totally avoid ice cream and cookies for now if at all possible. I have no trouble with being hungry and not eating, it's the cravings that always do me in.

Well, I have to get going now because I have counseling to get to! Talk to you later!
