I am new also and I am afraid to admit to people that I have a problem with overeating. I don’t know what is wrong but I have always been healthy and my weight is by no means high but in the past few weeks I have binged several times and the occurrences are getting closer together. I have gained a couple pounds already and I want to stop this before I lose complete control. Any help you guys can give me is greatly appreciated. I am scared because I feel like I know the reasons why I do it and I know that it is not normal but I still binge anyway and I cannot become bulimic even if I wanted cause I cannot get myself to throw up even when I feel so full that I could just get sick anyway due to the uncomfortableness of it, it’s like I have no gag reflex so it just sits there…help
no worries! i have the EXACT same problem… it’s good that you came on this site, it’s definitely helping me! for the past 4 years i’ve been a constant binger… i’ve ALWAYS had to have cereal every night even after dinner… and it was A LOT of cereal. but now i’m on 11 days of being binge free because of this website! this is the longest i haven’t binged on cereal at night which is just amazing to me!
how do you normally eat? what are you daily activities that contribute to your eating? what makes you want to binge? it helps a lot to write down a food journal of what you eat and your activities of the day.
what REALLY helped me was just when i had the urge to binge, i would come to this website first and write out my thoughts. you should try that when you feel the urge to binge!
