    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 one ever

    since becoming diabetic at age fifteen (yeah, the powers above really like to stick it to you sometimes don't they?? lol). I have had issues with food and my weight ever since, but I finally believe I have cracked it. A few years ago I realised I had had enough of being a slave...

    I just can't bring myself to give up delicious

    food for health. I work out almost everyday and do cardio and strength training, but I can't bring myself to eat right. I love food sooo much. I used to be a little underweight only maybe 3 months ago, with defined abs and legs. Now I consider myself average or a little chubby...

    I feel really ******.

    These past weeks I've been shoving food down my mouth when bored or stressed. My last binge was less than 20 minutes ago and I feel so full and gross and I don't know what to do with myself. I quit the gym 6 months ago because I had dedicate more time to studying, now I feel so...

    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...

    I'm 14, well... I'll be 15 in 2 weeks.

    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...

    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 a binge eater. I hate myself every single

    day. I can't stop. All the therapy in the world, medication, and many other solutions I've attempted do not help. I feel as though I'm not fulfilling my true purpose in life. Sometimes I wonder if I'm already dead. I want to stop. Every day I wait for that moment of clarity that...

    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

    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...

    that I'm going to be fat, and that I need to stop eating forever. really? That only makes me want to eat even more. But then she gets concerned when I'm not eating!

    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 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...

    I eat soooooo much! I have 8 meals every day.

    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 always tend to overeat.

    I eat when I'm lonely, sad or upset, so basically a way of coping with negative emotions. I try to exercise three times a day and cut down on my intake, but of course I always over eat anyway. *Eat, repent, repeat*
