Anyone up for a Holiday Challenge?

I am making a commitment to myself to make it the rest of the year with no b/p. Since the holidays are coming up, I am hoping to gain some accountability teammates for this tempting time of year. TJ is in... anyone else? I realize it is a big commitment, and if we give in, that's ok. We pick back up and give each other support! Hope to get some good responses

I posted on my blog that this

I posted on my blog that this was my goal, so count me in. I've had binge thoughts already, but knowing that I really want to make it till Dec. 31 made me not act on them. They weren't strong urges, but still, not acting is a victory when just being bored in the past could lead to a binge. And if we give in, it can still be a step in the right direction if we treat it the right way.

You go guys! I keep coming

You go guys! I keep coming back to this post because I so so want to join in, but it seems too big right now. For me, to get through a whole day would be fab. Then 1 week. Or to come home and do things other than food. But I can cheer you on from the sidelines :)
Kind thoughts and gentle light,
Nisi.

This is my first post on

This is my first post on here.....and I just felt that I had to respond to this one. I AM SOOOO IN FOR THIS CHALLENGE!!!! Are you guys still going for it? I always set these types of goals for myself....but somehow, I guess I seem to wait for 'tomorrow', blah, blah! It would be so helpful to have someone dealing with this same issue going for the same goal! Let me know and if you are still up for it, we can help each other!

Wow, I can't believe I'm

Wow, I can't believe I'm saying this, but I'm in. To me, it will be a Christmas gift to myself. (I'm going to give myself a pass on Halloween though... taking nephew trick or treating...) These past 4 days my mom has been in the hospital with 4 blood clots in her lungs and 1 blood clot in her leg. Very deadly situation... that alone has created constant b/p urges. I've b/p'd for 4 days in a row, so today I am DETERMINED to have ab/p free completely abstinent day. I too am in the same boat with 1 day being a victory. So doing this challenge scares the crap out of me quite frankly. But I guess that means I'm afraid of failing. But if I keep pressing on, failure is impossible because failure is quitting.. not stumbling. So, I'm in. I might mess up... but I will be right back on the horse if I do the next day.

Live your passion! :)

I'm in too! Just joined a

I'm in too! Just joined a week ago, my most recent B/P was only two days ago. But I love the thought of us challenging and encouraging each other, and having to be accountable to all of you! And, as @catlover0012 said, if I mess up, I'll own up to it and be back in the next day.

Great idea, @Wreckovering. Thanks! Positive vibes to everyone!

Well, I fell off the wagon on

Well, I fell off the wagon on Sunday (it was a tough weekend with my in-laws, my mother-in-law drives me nuts), but I got back on it yesterday. I've resumed my quest for no B/P through the end of the year!

It's been a rough two days

It's been a rough two days for me with b/p. I had gone for around 20 days prior to that and it wasn't that bad. On one hand, I'm disappointed in myself for slipping. But it's reinforced the need to be a little more responsible for myself and not to either punish myself or reward myself with food. Once again (for what seems like the umpteenth time, but I know it will get easier), I need to recommit to SE and arrange my schedule around my meals rather than shoehorn in bites and smoothies here and there. The better I eat, the more enjoyable my meals are and the better I feel about myself. And when life gets hard, at least I know the bulimia won't make it worse.
