Binge Eating

My name is Jackie and I am a binge eater. I eat amounts of food at one time that one should not consume. I have a huge issue eating things for long periods of time or sneaking food around others.

 I have a problem. I am trying to stop it but many do not understand. I am also an emotional eater. I tend to binge eat when I am upset or stressed. I am mostly stressed. I feel I have a lot on my plate..no pun intended..

 So when I am stressed I like to snack on everything. You name it I will snack on it. Not only that I drinks large amounts of alcohol. I love food and I always seem to focus my life around it. I always think of meals or places to eat. It sucks.

  
 I feel like this lists describes me a lot. I am trying to change my habits but I have an addiction. I did well a couple of years ago but I feel like I have replapsed.

Do you guys suffer with this? What do you all do?

  1. I’m definitely in this boat as well! I didn’t realize exactly how bad it was until I somehow became consciously aware of how crazy it is that I feel relieved when people leave so I can eat until they come back or that I sneak bites or handfuls of food when certain people aren’t looking because I’m embarrassed. Unfortunately I’ve yet to get a real handle on it. I have good days and bad days. I find that even on those good days I’m so consumed by the thought of food and the contents of the next meal that it doesn’t really seem like a win. A few years ago I counted calories and did well with weight loss. Now I just obsess when I try and it makes it so much worse! The eat to live mindset is what I’m going for as well, but it’s easier said than done. We’ll get there! 🙂

    • Thank you so much for sharing this with me. I apologize it took so long to respond. We both need to work together on eating to live and that is it. It is okay to cheat once in a while but the binge eating is so terrible. We can support each other. =)

  2. Yup – this resonates with me too. Honestly – I’m not sure what I’m going to do. Have thought about seeking therapy to gain tools to help me fight this because I have goals that my weight is getting in the way of.

    • Therapy may help. Maybe talking about it to someone can be a great thing. I love Weight Watchers for that reason. Being able to talk to people..but also listen to them makes me realize I am not alone.
