    I Feel That If I Eat Then I Take Away From Someone Else

    I often feel guilty for eating. I hate to eat in front of anyone now days. It makes me depressed to eat. I feel that when I eat that I am taking away food from my kids and family that they could have. I think it started many years ago when I started to cook. I always make...

    I Feel Like Eating Is Wrong.

    It all stems from my self-esteem and being teased and rejected when I was young for my weight. Now, it doesn't matter how much I exercise or how healthy the food is, it always feels like I'm doing something wrong by eating. Like I'm doing something I shouldn't be. It'll get so...

    More often than not I can eat all I want

    and not feel bad, but lately I've felt more compelled to give in to an old middle school habit of mine. My eating disorder, though mild, was a huge part of my identity in eighth grade. Sometimes I worry that people won't believe that a 13 year old could develop a disorder like...

    Everytime I Eat

    Even if it just a bite of something, I feel horrible and guilty.  I think of all the calories in what I just ate.  I do LOVE to eat, though.  But, I try not to be around food much even though I like to cook, because I do not want to be tempted.  Too...

    Fat

    I do feel bad any time I eat. It doesn't matter what I'm eating, I just feel like I shouldn't be eating it. I'm actually quite a healthy eater- mostly fresh vegetables and fruit, and of course, carbs, since I'm a vegetarian, and I do get plenty of protein from nuts and soy...

    I Feel Bad After I Cannibalize My Lovers

    Well, all you weight conscious people feel like eating is both pleasurable yet you're overwhelmed with guilt. Therefore, perhaps you can understand the adrenaline rush during my killing and cannibalizing spree and how it's then followed by tremendous remorse. For I only...
