Re: Workout/Staying in Shape Thread
Hello, I have a dilemma that has plagued me for some time, and I was wondering if someone has gone through the same thing or has some advice. I am 25 years old and since January of last year I have lost 150 pounds. I did this gimmick free just eating right and exercising everyday. Although I am comfortable with my size I wouldnt mind losing 20 more pounds, however it's not really a priority.
Here is my problem, I generally go three to four days eating healthy and jog three miles daily. However, one day I will start to crave bad food uncontrollably and binge really bad, (I was 350 pounds for a reason) thus I put on the weight that I lost a few days prior. This wouldn't be a big deal because as I am not really gaining weight overall, but I feel this is a waste of money and eventually will catch up to me either because of injury or age.
Does anybody have any advice? Yes I know some are just going to say stop, but when you are conditioned to eat that way for 10+ years it's not just easy to stop. Also, yes I did this once by losing the weight but when you're pretty happy with your size and you're not putting the weight back on the true hardcore motivation is gone. Can it be fixed by eating the right foods, more calories, or more variety? Or am I just doomed to repeat this cycle because of entrenched conditioning? I have tried to stop this several times and I don't do this from apathy, it is just some days all I can think about are bad foods to the point it controls me.
