Binge Eating

Good Evening Divas,
I hope everyone had a lovely weekend! I, on the contrary, had a mess of a time! It's always extremes with me! As you all know, I've been contemplating diets and really trying to plan out stuff! Well there's good and bad news. 
First, let's get the ugly out of the way. I ate pretty poorly for the past few days. As mentioned, when I weighed myself on Saturday, I had not gained the weight, and I remained at 160.6/8 lbs. I had a bit of a bingeing episode yesterday, and ate the most I have in a REALLY long time-thousands of calories. I fear that I've developed Binge Eating Disorder as it's near impossible to control and it happens regularly. (I mean how many people do you know that can gain 40 lbs in 6 months?) Well, I weighed myself today and in the matter of one day, I went all the way up to 166 lbs!!!! 5 pounds in ONE DAY! Wowie!
Now about the good! I've decided on my diet! I'm going to try to stick to weight watchers starting tomorrow all through to September. I think that due to the comments you've all left, you collectively think it's the most effective, realistic, attainable, and safe! Starting tomorrow morning, I'm going to take pictures of everything I eat! 
By the way to be honest, after this morning's weigh in, I'm feeling super down! I can't help but feel ashamed, hopeless, and embarrassed. My weight is becoming mortifying. I look so stocky for someone of only 5'2". Also, I'm SO young that it must seem unfortunate. Next, I'm obsessed with fashion and I currently fit into nothing, not to mention I look awful in clothing right now. With the heat, I need to wear less clothing, and I feel ashamed. Lastly, I'm starting to feel real physical symptoms like achy stomach, severe bloating, tightness in my skin, rubbing arms and thighs, and tendonitis!

Two quick questions:
1. Do you have anything you could share about Weight Watchers, including links?

2. Would you prefer all my food pictures in one big post at night or whenever I eat it, upload it in separate posts?

XOXO Diet Diva!


  1. 1. Do you have anything you could share about Weight Watchers, including links? There is a fantastic block out there I love her site!!

    2. Would you prefer all my food pictures in one big post at night or whenever I eat it, upload it in separate posts? I think dailiy would be easiest, but jmo.

    That five pounds,it is water!! Give yourself a few days and you will see it go down just as fast as it popped up.

  2. 1. I don't have any thing to share about WW because I haven't tried it yet.

    2. I think the pics in just one post would be easier for me as a reader, but if it is easier for you post as you would like.

    As far as gaining that much weight in a short amount of time, I did the same thing and found out that I have a thyroid disorder. I'm not saying that for sure this is what is happening to you, but you may want to get it checked out. It effects the matabolism greatly.

  3. Life happens. My eating wasn't all that great this weekend but today is another day :)

  4. 1. I have a few links on my blog. I like
    and there is a yahoo group with weight watcher recipes that is great
    Also don't forget

    2. Just 1 post :) It's much easier for you.

  5. i've heard great things about weight watchers!! i notice alot of people in the blogging community post all their food pics once a day. looking forward to reading about your journey!!

  6. I too am very bad with bingeing, I wouldn't think twice about polishing off a whole packet of biscuits, followed by three packets of crisps, but I came to the realisation that no one else is going to lose the weight for me, it's me who is in charge of my body and I need to start acting like it! So i'm doing WW too! I am following your blog so will keep updated on your progress! And hey, if you ever need to rant or someone to listen, let me know! Good luck! You CAN do it! x
