If you binge, I understand. Been there, done that, got the t-shirt (another list item?) Binging is an emotional response to things we don't even understand. It begins before we know it and then we don't know how to stop. It must run its course. I wish I could tell you why. I can think of a couple of bloggers I know who really suffer over their binges. I know they truly want to stop.
This is different than the person who uses an event like FitBloggin' as a reason to binge because FitBloggin' will be the new beginning. I read some blogs where the conversation was between two people who weigh more this year at FitBloggin' than they did last year at FitBloggin' and just made light of it. I don't think either of these two was serious, just immature. One was just fishing for support and validation that she was amazing. This has nothing to do with emotions. It has everything to do with insincerity.
Have you done something amazing today? Did you drink water, exercise, eat right? Well, butter my butt and call me biscuit (couldn't resist).
Be careful out there today.
