Binge Avoided

I had a bad migraine yesterday. Bad enough that I had to call into work. I haven't called months, really. Forever, it seems. But I didn't binge. I ate, which I've always done with migraines, because it makes the medicine work better. But all I ate was a handful of pretzels and a spoonful of peanut butter. This morning, I weighed 138.6, which was only .4 more than I was yesterday, and I always get water gain after migraines. After a few hours, and even after breakfast, I weighed myself again, and was at 138.2. That was the biggest problem I was having with restricting - that I was binging whenever my head started to hurt. And I didn't do that this time. At all.

But yeah. I called into work, and I barely slept, because of the headache. But I've been laying around most of the day, icing my leg and cuddling with my dog. I'm considering cleaning the bathroom soon, because the tub is dirty, and I really want a bath. The heat would feel amazing on my leg. Some nice vanilla bubbles, candles, and Tchaikovsky's 1812 overture while it's still dark out? Sounds absolutely...heavenly.

I think I'm going to go do that. I have about two hours before the sun rises, so I need to get it clean now if i want a decent hour in the tub.

Stay strong lovies. And thank you all so much for your support ♥ I get sadly excited whenever i log in and see new comments.


  1. congrats on avoiding a binge! always a good thing!

  2. I feel for you about the migranes, I get them maybe every 4-5 months and they stay for a week or so. I can't even move while I have them! And your bath does sounds absolutely heavenly. :)

    yes it sounds quite nice :)
    omg i wanna do it too!
    yay for no bingeing!!!!

  4. I get excited too!! I love comments! <3
    It isn't sad at all. I hope you start feeling better so you can post more, dammit. And wow @ these migraines. I've had those before where it was absolutely debilitating and I couldn't have light or anything, I just needed a little hole to crawl in and die. That plan does sound absolutely heavenly, I wish I had a tub. :(

  5. Wonderful job on avoiding a binge : D I'm sorry about the migraine though : ( I hope you are feeling better now <3 And I think your plan does sound absolutely heavenly! : D
    Stay strong <3

  6. I get excited about comments too. I'm so glad to hear about your progress, and happy that you ate because you do need to take care of your dear self!!

    Love that picture :)

  7. the dreaded migraine binge! I know this demon all too well.

    Since I've been eating healthy, doing a little exercise and drinking my 8+ glasses of water I've noticed that they are fewer and further between. And I started taking Excedrin Migraine for good measure when I feel the slightest hint.

    Add a glass of champagne to your bath scene and it's what i'd call What Dreams are Made Of!!


  8. Woww.. Just wanted to say you are doing AMAZING! Your progress is awesome.. stay strong & keep it up.. My highest weight was probably around the 200 mark too.. you've come such a long way!

  9. Okay so I came across your blog from Red Bracelet Emergency's comments.. I was impressed with the comment you left and had to check you out.
