A Tale of Two Binges

Binge 1 ~ last night ~ x1000 cals: I knew R was going out for the evening. On my way home from aquarobics, I called into the supermarket and bought a pile of stuff to binge on. As soon as he went out, I ate till I felt sick. I don't even know why I did it, I haven't been feeling particularly bad lately.

Binge 2 ~ this morning ~ 0 cals: cycled into town to pay a large cheque into the bank and then (even tho we are skint and most of that money is going to go on paying bills), celebrated by indulging in a Waterstones 3-for-2 offer.

I love getting new books. We have a houseful of books but can always find room for more. I'm going to have to limit myself to splurges at the local Oxfam bookshop from now on. Aksually I love Oxfam bookshop - last week I found some excellent fact books for O, plus a fantastic kids' joke book that my sis used to have.

Before going to town, I had to go see the practice nurse at the doctor's surgery, for a routine smear test and check on my IUD. Our practice nurse, Sister L, is a sweetie. She never forgets to warm the speculum.

OK you can look again now

Sister L's the one who put me in touch with the smoking cessation service, which was the start of my ultimately succesful quit. We've talked about my weight issues in the past. We talked about them some more today, she was encouraging about what I've been doing and not down on me for not making more progress. She also mentioned that if I feel that compulsive eating is a real problem for me, there are support groups I could go to. I'll see how I go on for a bit longer, but keep that in mind. I love Sister L, she's 'soft cop' to our GPs 'tough cop'. And we all know nurses rool.
