    Relapsed--I Don't Know Why--Another Second Chance

    I've never been ashamed of the fact that I am a compulsive over-eater.  While many people are ashamed of it, I am not.  If food is in front of me, I will not stop eating, and when it is not around, I can't stop thinking about it.  If I go on a binge, like I did today, one bite...

    Today

    I wish I had a normal habit in regards to my eating patterns. I wish that I could carry myself in a manner that was responsible to my body. It disgusts me to think of what I just ate. I can't help but gag. Why did I eat like that? What made me consume what I did? How did I lose...

    I'm a huge binge eater.

    Normally people vomit it back up, but not me. I binge maybe once a a day or two.

    I go through stages. I'm sure the time of the

    I have cycled between binging

    and strict dieting for most of my life. It is partly emotional eating, partly eating from boredom but the biggest thing is the illicit thrill of saying screw the diet, I'm going to eat as much as possible. I am a bit of a perfectionist and have high, probably unrealistic...

    Almost Obese Again.

    I've been fattening up rapidly due to my horrible diet. Mushroom cheese pizza, whole blocks of chocolate, bags of crisps make up my days of gluttony. A lot of my snacking happens late at night when I can stuff my belly and not get any stares if I venture out of my bedroom...

    Accepting What I Do.

    I am a binge eater. I have a very bad relationship with food. It's all I have ever known. It was the only way I was taught to deal with any and all of my emotions. " Don't ever cry in front of a man." My mother would say to me after she got a call from my male teacher about kids...

    Oh, god. Three packages of honey integral

    cookies, two glasses of yogurt with sugar flakes/fruit in syrup. Ugh, I disgust myself. I feel like throwing up, but I hate throwing up. Ugh, ugh, ugh. Maybe I'll just get a laxative at the drugstore...ughhh.

    Went to the doctors to get tested

    for diabetes. This could actually be possibly due to all the sugar binges that have been excessive the last two years.

    Ever since I could start controlling what I ate

    and when I ate it, I've been experimenting with eating times and how much I eat. I started eating less and less to the point where I had only a small snack a day like pop tarts or a sandwich. I lost 40 pounds but I noticed I would go through periods of time where food would...

    Binging As Meditation?

    I wonder if part of why I binge is because it affords me a rare focus. Usually my mind is spinning in a million directions at once – almost all of which are futile and probably neurotic. But when I binge, I narrow all that clatter down to one thing: either eating or drinking...

    I binge on junk food.

    It has a really numbing affect on me. It helps me stop worrying about things and just do something. It isn't healthy, I know. But maybe that's part of the reason why I do it. I just want to stop caring so much sometimes. I'm not really overweight, and I never cared much about...

    I don't overly eat to the point to call it

    binging, but I do each sometimes and I can't control myself around food. Like I just had two bowls of soup, and I'm about to have an apple. It's 1 a.m. I'm so sick of it. I need to get rid of it but everyone is sleeping.

     Once I get home from school every afternoon, I binge on food. I'll eat cookies, chips, chocolate,etc... It can be pretty disgusting.  Thank god, I don't gain weight that easily.

    Binge Eating Without Limit

    When my wife was thinner, she had to stop her food binges when she was so full she felt like she was going to throw up. Now that her stomach has been stretched out by years of overeating, there doesn't seem to be a limit to how much she can stuff herself with food.

    but I feel disgusted. I'm just going to get fat and gross. I eat my feelings then I want to punish myself for it. On the opposite side, I've been looked at funny because I have "unusual" habits which only makes me feel worse. Unique is the same as weird. Stop judging me and...

    I Binge Eat

    I can't remember exactly when I started to binge on food. But once I started, it felt so good in the moment because I felt like I was protected from all my problems by binge eating- food is the ultimate source of my comfort. I wish it wasn't. It's like a vicious cycle- I'm...

    I thought that it was normal to binge on food.  Is there really anything (other than drugs) to binge on??? You can't binge on air.  Or couches, or hair.  Right.  Because binging is about putting something in, right? Well, there!  I do eat way too much...
