fuck-heartbreak asked: Hey, I just found your blog and I really like it. Im beginning on my weight loss journey and I slipped today. I totally binged and I feel terrible. How do I make up for it? Its really stressing me out.
Hey! Welcome to the family. I’m so glad you found my blog!
Best advice, don’t stress. Everyone binges and (honestly) a lot of the time what someone might consider to be a “binge” doesn’t even come close to an actual overload of calories. THAT would take a lot of effort. One or even a couple of binges will not throw you off your game. Often eating a larger amount of nutrients than you typically consume on an average day can actually help to rev up your metabolism. Stress will only exacerbate the situation. So, just breathe! It will totally be ok. If you binged on junk food, drink some water, go for a walk, enjoy what you had, and just eat fresh tomorrow. This has, in no way, ruined your progress. All of the effort you put into your healthy lifestyle will not vanish if you have some “not so good for you” food. I encourage everyone to enjoy the foods they truly love. It’s all about moderation at the end of the day.
Don’t beat yourself up. You’ll be just fine!
