    Snake Eater

    I almost never feel like eating, and have a hard time eating a healthy amount of food during a day because of this.  It's a weird sensation.  I can feel that my body is hungry, even making noises, but I just don't want to eat.  It's become an unpleasant chore...

    EAT Something!

    This is what people yell at me, all the time, "EAT SOMETHING!" I get so busy with so many things, that I forget to eat! For example, today... I had coffee and a bagel... that's it! :-o I think it has something to do with my past. I use to starve myself, when I was...

     Today I ate 1/2 a box of Hot Tamales and a baked potato from Wendy's. Great way to get in my calories for the day!

    My eating habits are the worst.

    I am in love with bread. I love to cook but only when it is for other people. Most of the time I eat out which is not helping at all with my weight. I'm at a loss as to what to do because I feel like I'm out-of-control with my eating.

    I sometimes skip three

    or four meals at a time. I never eat breakfast, occasionally eat lunch, and occasionally eat dinner. I have the worst sweet tooth and often eat dessert for dinner, along with random snacks (crackers, yogurt, fruit) throughout the day.

    I purged, but didn't technically binge. I just got scared after having honey with chia pudding. 😷 I smell like puke and so does my whole room. I am a mess.
