    I realized today why I eat all the time.

    It's because eating is honestly the only thing I look forward to in my short term life. Don't get me wrong, I have hobbies and MANY passions and loves, but something keeps me from being content and whatever it is, it's masked by food. I never know if it's because of boredom or...

    Another Side.

    Don't puke Chippie, it's bad for you. You're too good for that. Keep staying strong. You're a beautiful, intelligent young lady. Don't give in. Besides, you didn't eat THAT much. Looks like you're hungry again, another plate won't hurt. More. More. More. You may be FULL, but your...

    Eating My Biggest Life Mystake

    I wasn't always fat but after all these years I'm obese. I don't even think my friends like me as every time when we talk about problems and stuff and I'm telling them that I need to do something with my life and loose weight all I hear is; "But your not fat" which obviously is a...

    I could go on the day without eating anything

    at all as I had a medical case for anorexia which I can proudly say recovered but still have the tendencies to do so. When I realize I haven't eaten anything I will force myself to eat.. But once I bite, the whole thing spirals out of control. I will binge. Binge. Binge. Even...

    It Is My Most Hated Addiction.

    Today has been different. I haven't eaten much... just a few bites of chicken.  I have had some tea and water, also. Usually my days are very different, though, full of eating huge quantities of food.  Sometimes I purge, other times not.  I have gained a lot of...

    Can't wait to move out.

    I have no self control when it comes to food. At least when I'm on my own, I won't go to the grocery store that often and so I won't be tempted to over eat

    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!

    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 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 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...

    My Fat Barrier

    It's happened several times now over the past 15 years. Every time I enter into a relationship I blow up like a balloon. People say, "Oh when you're happy you eat more!" That may be true for some people but for me it's me building a barrier. The image of who I truly am, my well...

    Obsession With Food

    I usually eat real big amounts of food when I'm alone, to the point of feeling sick. I plan my every meal, and my mouth waters when I think of eating even when I'm far from hungry. When I was younger I would eat mouthfuls of bread and cookies and pass it with a gross mixture of...

    I have been anorexic before

    and since I got put in the hospital I can't eat normally. I go from not eating everything to binge eating everything. I can't find a balance with my eating and it's so hard because I'm so unhappy with my weight when I lose 10 lbs I'm so happy then I eat and gain it all back.
