    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.

    i was very close to gettin kebab for tea today as its been a long busy day at work. however, my motivation was thinking whether i wanted to stay fat forever or become slim... it was an easy choice! i now have pork steaks in the oven, pasta and veg on the hob!

    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.

    Yeah I just noticed the gallery n stuff now so am having a nosey. It's actually helping to have this place, normally I'd have to wait a X amount of days for group or bore my BF talking about it, now I have this place :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)!

    help i can't stick to any as i am greedy
    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
