    i know how you feel...i was doing soo good for almost 3 months and then all of a sudden i fell off. at first i blamed it on TOM....then "well, it's just a plateau"....then said, "i'll get back on track tmw. and it will start coming off."....it's been 3 weeks now, and i haven't exercised hardly at all. i think about my weight constantly, but then i'll go to the kitchen and get something i don't EVEN need or really want. i don't know where my motivation has gone, but i hope i find it soon! i'm sure i will, and you will, too! you'll reach your goal, i'm sure!

    I'm just now having my first TOM since being on phen. Actually I didn't have one for 2 1/2 months, I think due to stress (my husband was out to sea) and my sudden complete change in diet. But OMG this one is baaaad. I just wanna curl in a ball on my bed lol.

    Anyhow, I decided to not take my phen while having my monthly friend. I find that if my emotions are running high, phen only escalates it (phen rage anyone?). It's only my first day not taking it, but I find I am flying off the handle a lot less than I was yesterday and I have not had any huge cravings or anything. Yesterday while on phen and my friend hadn't started yet, I wanted soda soooo bad and chocolate and I was extremely irritable.
    Maybe you could try my approach next time and see if it helps?

    I'm sorry - it's so discouraging to lose control after doing all the right things. I know! I sooooo do this. I have such a grip / such control on everything else but with food ... I let it get the best of me.
    You can do this ... remember how good it feels to eat good .... you deserve that !

    Default Emotional/Compulsive Eating

    I also have this issue. I have read 3 books so far by Geneen Roth titled, When Food is Love, Breaking Free from Emotional Eating, and The Craggy Hole in my Heart and the Cat Who Fixed It. I really enjoy hearing her personal experiences as well as experiences and comments from women who come to her workshops. If you're interested check your local library or amazon. Hang in there and most importantly, understand that we all have our own struggles and we do the best we can. We deserve love like everyone else. If you saw someone really having a hard time, even losing the battle of overeating, would you condemn them? Or would you comfort them and relate with them? You deserve the same from yourself! Try to be understanding and loving - to you.

    I'm sorry your having a hard time. Losing weight is not just physical...it is very much emotional as well. As far as your going off your diet for three days-at least it was just three days and now you are telling yourself to get back on track. It happens to everyone. Seriously. Try not to be so hard on yourself, you're doing awesome. You've lost 11lbs since 6/12? That's a very big accomplishment! You can do it!

    Default I'm so tired of losing control of myself.

    I am so mad at myself right now. TOM came a week early, but the PMS came on time... wtf? I didn't start having any cravings or hunger issues until Friday. I have binged the whole three day weekend. I not going to sit here and says its all TOM's fault, HE doesn't choose my food, I do. I'm just so aggravated, I tried to motivate myself before I went away for the weekend, but I wasn't strong enough to turn down anything my folks cooked for me while I was up there. I kept telling myself it would be rude not to eat what they made me, and used that as an excuse to eat whatever.

    I am so tired of losing control of myself. When I am making good choices and exercising, I FEEL so much better about myself and confident. When I lose control though, I feel like I'm looking at someone 100lbs heavier when I look in the mirror. The feeling gets so strong, I ACT on it. I pull my seatbelt out enough for two people "so it will fit around me", I can't shop for underclothes or sexy things to wear for my husband in regular stores "b'c people walking by are laughing at me for thinking I can fit in something like that", if I have to walk by someone in a tight space I put my back to the wall and **** in to let them by. I don't feel these psycho things when I'm making good choices b'c I'm in control of the monster in my head.

    I posted a week or two ago about changing my mini goal and you guys said that 170 lbs. was a good weight to expect by Sept. I agree with you, but I keep thinking that ALL I have to lose in 2 1/2 months is 10 lbs so I don't have to try as hard. I'm allowing myself to justify slacking up b'c I keep thinking '10 lbs?' 'what's 10 lbs in 2 1/2 months? I have plenty of time for that.' I'm going to go ahead and change my goal in hopes of making myself want to work much harder. I'm going to try for 160 lbs by Sept. I'm getting control back... again.
    210lbs-170lbs 10/01/08 - 3mo of phen & 3mo of just D&E
    208.5 lbs 05/04/10 - Wk 0 (started phen again)

    Mini Goal: 170lbs by my Vegas vacation in August



    Final Goal: 150lbs
