I’ve been binge-eating since I was 11 or 12 … I’m 28 now and while I have gone through periods of being thinner and not-so-thin, the addiction has always been there. But it was only up until recently that I realized that I legitimately have a disorder. I’ve always just beat myself up for not having enough will-power or drive to work-out. And of course, once I hated on myself for all of that … I would binge. Your classic vicious cycle!
Anyhow, I’ve been reading ‘Crave’ by Cynthia M. Bulik, and have not binged for (oh wow!) 5 days. Which is such a huge accomplishment for me
Just thought I would try out this forum, and hopefully meet some peeps who would like to trade support and inspiration
Welcome to the forum…I just read “Overcoming Binge Eating” and it’s been amazingly helpful for me. I think I’m five days binge free too! Not that I’m counting, but since you mention it lol I feel like I’m truly truly beginning to heal and that food isn’t running my life. It’s freed up so much brain capacity I can’t even believe it! I would HIGHLY recommend the book. It’s a self treatment program basically. Be proud, be positive, move forward. That’s what I’m trying to do at least!
