    Again And Again And Again

    I just had a huge, 1500 calorie binge again, straight after lunch. I tried to purge but I couldn't, I've stopped being able to recently, and I don't know why, so it's all sitting in me right now, making me fat, causing me skin problems, and making me feel like a complete freak...

    I'm Tori, twenty years old.

    I stand at 6'0, and weigh 258 pounds. That probably doesn't sound too bad. But let me explain. As a little girl, I loved sweets and all that delicious, fatty food that is so bad for me. But I grew so quickly, constantly, that I never gained a pound, no matter how much I ate. My...

    I freakin hate it. Even

    if I'm not hungry my brain just wants me to eat more -__- so fed up with being overweight. It causes so much anxiety and paranoia and low self esteem but I just can't seem to change!

    I go through cycles of binging,

    (sometimes purging) and starving. Then repeat. It's a special kind of hell. I can't ever control myself during binges. Like I cannot stop. Lol.

    i hate this, i think the reason i eat like this

    is because though my crippling anxiety i have something i can control. something that i have a handle and is real and there, maybe its just my gender dysphoria being bad and me needed a distraction. i dont know what it is, but its horrible and crushing. :, (

    I have been researching tons on this subject.

    I have suffered from this since puberty. The #1 mistake of compulsive eaters is dieting. Restricting any one food or any combo of foods. It is better to eat normal portions of junk foods that to eat healthy foods and then binge anyways. Telling oneself that you can have whatever...

    Each are the amount of food you would have at Thanksgiving. I have large snacks in between each meal and everything is loads of fattening food to fatten me up! I love to eat to gain loads of weight!

    I have times when I am overtaken by an urge- an

    urge to eat. I can't help it, all that food I have in the house, I put into a pile, and just throw my face at it, devouring huge amounts of food in no time. Then, after this, I just snap back, I feel so full. This has caused my weight to balloon.

    I'm generally very health about what I eat

    but once or twice a week I binge. Sometimes I'll eat 10-15,000 calories in one binge episode. I don't purge afterwards. I'll eat to the point of feeling ill and then I'll keep going. I feel disgusted by my behavior.

    I am a compulsive eater.

    My eating habits are to hide from/cover up my emotions. I still struggle with my relationship with food and am finding it difficult to try eating or approaching food like 'normal' people.

    I am definitely a compulsive eater. I do eat when I'm hungry, but most of the time when I'm eating, it's because I'm angry, sad, lonely, bored, or having racing thoughts. Food calms me down I guess. I'm 5'5 and I weigh around 110 pounds, so I'm at a healthy weight. But today...

    This is probably going to sound pathetic.

    I am an overeater. Mostly, I'm an emotional overeater. Whenever, as a child, I was sad, food was a comfort from my mom. Really, pick any emotion...even illness. Food was a comfort, shoved down your face hole until your stomach was swollen. They don't call babies fat, they call...
