The Plan

I think I want to start taking guitar lessons or something. My life is becoming increasingly more revolved around the binge and purge cycle and it's really starting to wear on me. Yesterday and this morning were big eating days, which means my seven day streak is broken and now I have to start ALL OVER AGAIN. I blame the person who invented ice cream. And pancakes.

Today is warm! I can't believe it! Well, it's about 45 degrees which is pretty damn spring-like for New England in February. Maybe the gym will be less crowded and I'll get my favorite elliptical. I like to think that in weather like this more people choose to be outside instead of on the treadmill.

Anyways, in regards to the weight issue, I still need to lose 10 pounds but the only way to achieve this is to STOP BINGEING.

That being said I've made a decision that I think will be both terrifying and effective. Are you ready for it?

I'm going to go exactly TWO WEEKS without weighing myself.

The way I see it, I'm always disappointed with the numbers, and I think that is part of what triggers the overeating. If I ditch the scale for a couple of weeks, I cut out a major source of stress.

What do people think of the plan? Ambitious, right? Also, if you guys have any tips for handling ED behaviors like bingeing I'd love to hear them.

  1. Well that's like ED therapy 101, get rid of the damn scale. Of course once you try you start noticing them everywhere! Good luck!

    Great now I want a pancake!
