    I have just had yet another binge. I've been binging for three days in a row now, which has never happened before, and have had my largest ever binge yesterday. I can hardly move, and feel sick. This has got to stop, and I will start fresh from now on. Most of my compulsive...

    Hate Doing It

    I don't know why I do it.Whenever I start I always think"I'll just binge now and not eat anything else the rest of the day."Then it becomes really hard to stop.I binge again afterwards.I think I eat when I'm bored and depressed.

    F*** You

    Why do you hate yourself this much? You put these endless amounts of food in your body, knowing full well that it’ll only lead to more unescapable self-loathing. You stuff your face to a point that your stomach hurts and you can do nothing but lie on your stomach and choke...

    Fast Food Buffet

    When I stress out, I eat.  It's been this way for years. When I was younger I would munch away on carrots and celery. Not so anymore, now it's junk food, the more variety the better. I've found myself getting fries from Rally's, mac n' cheese from Boston Market and fried...

    I've always been overweight

    and I've always wanted to be thin but I've also always had a love for food. I've spent the last 10 months trying to lose weight (I managed to lose 45lbs the healthy way) until 2 months ago when the binge eating started and old habits started. Everyday I wake up and tell myself...

    I just can't seem to break the habit :(

    whenever I feel rejected or hurt I will just eat until I feel sick and then I get the urge to make myself sick. The only problem is I can't make myself physically sick it refuses to come up so I just pile all the weight on and feel so guilty afterwards. I actually hate myself. I...

    It's hard to admit that binging is one of the

    few things that give me pleasure. I've lost almost all my friends to depression, ed and bpd. I've become a hermit who leaves the house to go to work, the gym or a grocery store. I want to be alone but I'm also bored and the little euphoria I get from stuffing my face is hard to...

    The worse i feel about myself the more

    and more i eat!!!!!!! I have that low feeling where I'm afraid to look in the mirror or down at my thighs. I keep getting urges to binge on food because I am down about my weight and I think I can't lose it - pretty non sequitur thinking but I can't help it!
