Motivation?

What do you guys do to motivate yourself not to binge?

I had a wobble last night where I wanted looooads of hot buttered toast, talked myself down from the edge and had an apple/yog instead.

Feeling better today but wondering what you guys do when you have a craving that won't go away?

To spur myself on I've just bought some new clothes that won't fit me, 4 sizes too small and I love them! Hoping that will give me something to aim for.

That's exactly what I did last night, thought about it and asked myself was it worth it, thought about how bad it would be to get bigger etc...It worked, was pissed off though, lol.

I haven't got any "after" pics yet, my befores were so bad I put them in a rar file with a password so no one else can see them!! :D

I have to remind myself of the reasons I am trying to lose the weight, such as the utterly gorgeous (and very expensive) pair of jeans which have been relegated to the loft for the last year :cry:, and that I want to be able to wear some nice clothes on my holiday in March.

Thinking about these a few times before indulging has seemed to help so far.

I have a wobble nearly everyday some are easier to get through than others! But I tell myself no food taste as good as being slim fit and healthy for the first time in my life, and it often works! Sometimes a bit of what you fancy does you good!
So if I have a hankering for something and it's day 3 and I still want/need it I tell my self I'll have it naughty night! ( dinner after weigh in I have what I want)!
 

Stupid

I'm a greedy pig

i am the last person to give advice on this as i over eat the wrong food

when i tried therapy for my binging i was told[if i can remember]
-try not to let a bad meal spoil your day
-plan for non food treats
-focus on healthy foods you do like
-right down a list of why you want to change your habits
-right down a list of pro and cons and what will happen if you do and if you don't change your life style
-reward yourself for progress
