    My Health, Weight And Life Were Out Of Control

    I think the first time I realized I was "chubby" was when I was in Jr High. My parents did not want to admit it so they said I was going to have a growth spurt and it would go away. But it did not go away. I would lose 10 and gain 15 or 20. As you all can relate this wore down...

    There are days when I only think about food

    and what I'm going to eat next... I love it on one hand, because it makes me happy, but I'm worried about it on the other hand because I'm getting fatter all the time...

    I want to lose weight.

    Eating less makes me feel weird and eventually makes me eat more/want to binge.. I know it's about moderation and eating the right things, but just wanted to know if anyone has any tips? I might try and snack on lean chicken breast or fruit, I'm a huge lover of all things...

    Blow Up

    I seriously cannot stop eating. I just pour food in my mouth. I pour it down my throat. It's painful, it hurts. sometimes I barely can get it down. but I do it anyway. i force myself to eat, even when I don't want to, when I have no need to, no desire to. when the food...

    And I don't want to. The only thing keeping me

    from eating more than I am is the fact that I'm almost too fat to get up. If I had someone to help feed me, I'd be eating like you wouldn't believe. How much would you feed me? How fat would you make me?

    Maybe I Should....

    Sometimes I eat so much, I think I should probably get it out, but I don't because I know it's bad for you. But I must confess, if it weren't bad for you, I would definitely be bulimic.

    Protein!!

    Right now, I'm working on eating foods with a lot of fiber and protein to help curb cravings. "Pure Protein Bars" are great. They make me feel full (which is rare for me) and give me energy. Unfortunately they're kind of gross, but if a couple of protein bars a day can help...

    I really cannot stop eating.

    I'm constantly looking for something to eat. I eat my meal, I want something else. I eat something else, I want something 30 minutes later. I really can't stop. I'm constantly snacking and I'm finding it hard to stop. How do I stop these urges to constantly eat? I really do try...

    It seems like no matter how much I eat,

    I'm still hungry. I keep eating, never stopping and I never feel full. I've been gaining rather rapidly which is nice, but I could probably gain more if felt full. My daily routine consists of eating, nap time, eating, nap time. All throughout the day. I way extremely fattening...

    Munchies....

    There are times when I just have to eat - anything - I don't feel hungry, I just have an overwhelming urge to go through the motions of eating. It doesn't matter what - even stuff I don't like sometimes. I don't get to enjoy the food either as I get through it so quickly. It...

    Binge-eating Disorder.

    I have recently realized that I do have a problem.  I was in denial for so long.  But food really is a problem for me.  I eat when I'm feeling sad, lonely, bored, happy, excited.  The only time I can't eat is if I am nervous or anxious.  But once I calm...

    four hundred pounds. I'll eat anything and everything and honestly there are probably like three foods in the whole world I don't like. If I counted calories I would have to put myself at like probably a bazillion a day. I'm just lucky I stay so thin, because I could NEVER diet...
