    Default Festive season binge eating - the struggle is real!

    Is anyone else overdoing it with the eating at the moment?

    I haven't pulled back since Xmas day. I know I'm gonna pay for it when my waistbands get mega tight, but I'm not quite ready to stop!

    Perhaps I'll cut the crap on New Year's Day - seems like a good time to start fresh

    I used to make a rule that anything left on New Year's Day went in the bin so I would stop eating excessively. I've been good the last couple of years, though. I got straight back in to exercise on Tuesday, and I can not exercise at the level of intensity I do and binge eat on c.rap food. The only thing I had trouble with was M&M's, but they were all gone yesterday so it's back to healthy eating for me. I went sugar free for 6 weeks before Christmas, and felt so great for it, so I am getting back to that.

    I think the secret to not binge eating, is not have too much crap food in the house. I deliberately only buy small amounts of lollies, and chips, and other sweet things like Christmas cake and fruit mince pies. Once Christmas is over, anything not opened is stored in the bedroom, until New Years, or tossed out if it is opened. After New Years, there is no more junk food in the house until Easter. And our Easter means way less junk food than Christmas. It is really hard to not eat cr*p when the pantry is full of cr*p. marie.

    So true @SuperGranny, if it's not in the pantry you can't eat it!

    Normally I don't keep much in the way of treats in the house, but I've made the error of replenishing the snacks every couple of days.

    I bought a box of mini magnums yesterday - fail! I've had 3 already.

    I just go with it and then pull myself back into line in the new year. A couple of kilos isn't hard to drop, would take a month of being back on my best behaviour to lose that extra weight.

    I remember reading something once that if you overindulgence for a week or so over Christmas it takes a month to get back to normal. Any longer than that it takes 3 months.
    I've been on a health kick trying to lose the stubborn last part of my baby weight and have been watching what I eat and exercising and losing 1.5kg per week for the past month or so. Christmas week all that had gone out the window and I have eaten heaps! No exercise.
    I'm trying to get back into it now, went to the gym this morning but haven't cut back the eating yet! Too many good foods around
    I do try and give any box of chocolate I get away just so it's not in the house. That's my weakness!

    Default Festive season binge eating - the struggle is real!

    This is the first year ever that I can think of where I haven't overdone it with the food and haven't had a drop of alcohol.. because I'm pregnant! I must say it hasn't been as hard to say no as I originally expected!!

    For me it's not the food. It's the drinks. I do t really like Christmas food. DHs family has really traditional roast meat and veg and salads, mine is seafood and ours is a combo of both with more BBQ meats. None are my favourites at all so I just have tiny bits of things. But it's the soft drinks, ciders and wines that get me every time.

    We hosted xmas this year so were left with all of the leftover junk food 😣 I've been binge eating it so that it's no longer there and can't tempt me anymore 😅 ...yep, solid logic!

    I plan to start fresh on New Years day. Going low sugar and whole foods from then.

    I've been soooo busy this year I actually haven't done too badly! I am however, planning a chocolate binge on NYE when I'm home alone I don't generally find it too hard to get back into the swing of things once the new year starts and I'm back into my normal routine.
