I feel sickened by myself...

Had a terrible day today (cat put to sleep) so decided the diet was off. But this evening I had pizza followed by an entire 500ml tub of chocolate brownie ice cream blush

I feel so ashamed for bingeing, how can I minimise the damage before weigh in?

Don't beat yourself up, you've had a sad, awful day & you comfort ate. It takes time to break habits like that & you will get there so please don't feel sickened by yourself.

You can't really minimise it but thats ok. Just accept that the day was awful, you slipped off the diet. Doesn't make you a bad person! Take the weigh in for whatever it is & start over, refocus. You'll do yourself no good by hating yourself for it & it'll stop you getting back on the SW horse.

Give yourself a break today!

I are an entire packet of chocolate digestives last night for no reason other than being a compulsive eating glutton.

Don't you feel ashamed of yourself at all you're just human! If my car had been out down I'd be devastated and probably done much worse.

Today's a new day. Take care x

Goodness, is that binging! I do things like that most days. I've got issues!! Please don't best yourself up. Dieting is really hard work and falling off the wagon from time to time is normal. Just pick yourself up and start again. You're a perfectly normal human being. Well done for dieting though and keep going and stop beating yourself up smile

Thanks everyone, I just feel like I've let myself down when I've been doing so well.

One bad day doesn't ruin an entire good 6 days. Draw a line under it. Don't use it as a reason to carry on eating in that manner and start a fresh today smile

Standard dessert for me and anyway you had a perfectly valid reason sad draw a line and forget it. Read somewhere if you stick to it 85% of the week u should still lose. Good luck

My birthday.. Then dd birthday.. wink But I gave myself permission.. And didn't gain any weight I can't keep eating like that.. But the world will go on.. As does the bulge battle!hoe you feel better grin

Who cares? Food and shame shouldn't go together.

Your cat died today. Be kind to yourself.

Get straight back on plan today - it's only a bad thing if you let it continue. Like another poster said, be kind to yourself.

Today is another day op! Dust yourself off and try again.

That was yesterday, today is back on plan. But you need to think about things to do when you feel sad that isn't bingeing - is it have a hot bath with aromatherapy oil, call a friend, watch a fave film, paint your toenails?

Shame is incredibly destructive. If you are judging yourself it is hard to make yourself believe that you are strong enough to succeed going forward. It does not help.

Judge yourself as you would someone else doing what you did. You responded to stress and sadness in a human way but you want to stop doing that so forget it and concentrate on moving forward.

Part of SW is not feeling guilt or shame for what you eat. Just call it a 'flexible syns' day and carry on regardless. You can definitely still get a loss by weigh in.

I always tell myself that I didn't develop my bad habits over night and they aren't going to go quickly either. It takes time to get out of bad habits (I too immediately want to eat junk food or binge if I'm stressed).
