hi everyone.


Wow thank you so much for all the supportive messages <3 so amazing! and so wonderful to feel that there is hope and that I am not completely alone in this.


Thank you :)


i binged last night again.  Will post more later xx

Keep in mind that it's not an all or nothing. If you decrease the number of numbers or have smaller binges, that is a success in itself.

Be kind to yourself, always.

Horn_of_plenty on 04/30/2020:
I agree with you and Donkey! Like you said, any improvement is a success ! No matter how small the improvement, if it’s putting you in a positive direction, it’s a success :-)

Hi everyone.  Thank you so much for the encouragement and comments.  i tried to reply but for some reason it doesnt want to let me. But thnk you all, I really appreciate teh support.


I binged again last night and i feel so powerless and out of control, makes me feel like I'm a little crazy and have not power over my own mind and whatever deomon it is that is driving this madness. siigh.

Anyway, today I am seeig the dietician, so hopefully that will help.

And, as was suggested, I'm going to try eat every meal and not restrict so hopefully I wont want to binge later...?

Meal Plan:

2 x toast with peanut butter and fruit

Pesto pasta (left overs)

Pork chops and mash.

Good luck with your appointment today! I hope that you get information that you find helpful. My advice: Be honest. S/he can't help you if you aren't upfront about what's going on. Shame, embarrassment, manners -- put ALL of that aside and open up about what's going on and what you're eating, so that you can get help. The dietitian is not there to judge, but to analyze objectively and HELP you. ((((hugs))))

Donkey on 04/23/2020:
PS I too hate that loss of control feeling. It's not so much the actual food but the behavior that bothered me the most. You might feel differently, but just letting you know you're not alone.

Good luck with the dietician, I hope you get some great tools to help you.

Horn_of_plenty on 04/23/2020:
Yes it helps to eat meals and not skip and for me I need snacks between meals like nuts or small pieces chocolate or small piece cheese .... something an hour before the meal that’s small to cut appetite at the meal....

I used to lose control like you, took me a LONG time to get better ... but you will :)

Hi. I don't know where to start, except to say I need help with my eating.  I am seeing a dietician in a few days but the overarching problem is that i cannot stop eating, i am bingeing. Secretly.

Its horrid and I don't know how to stop.

Last night, i had dinner, my wife fell asleep and i went crazy

I ate a large bar of chocolate, the whole thing, yogurt, bread and cheese. -I just couldnt' stop myself.  And  I hate myself for all this.

Anyway, plan for the day:

skip breakfast

lunch - chicken and avo salad

dinner - roast veg and artichoke pie

Hi vettie,

Sounds like you're working through some things right now. It's good that you have a plan to see a dietitian. Sometimes just having a plan in place helps to alleviate some of the anxieties we feel about introducing healthier habits into our lives.

You've got this. One day at a time. And don't beat yourself up for not getting it right...just keep moving forward.

Welcome! I think recognition is the first great step. I used to binge too, lately I stress eat due to the current situations.

I hope the dietician is able to help you.

Horn_of_plenty on 04/21/2020:
Listen - I’ve been in your shoes 100%.

I have had those terrible binges and felt so bad afterwards with extreme bloat and even constipation for 2-3 days!

Try not to limit your food too much bc it can backfire

Donkey on 04/21/2020:
Welcome! I hope you find support and fellowship here.

I've struggled with binge eating in the past. I still have "food fits" from time to time but they are more like overindulgence rather than binge. I feel your pain.

Please be patient with yourself. Try to identify the emotion or trigger that you experience before you start bingeing. Many times, I feel relief or release. Sometimes, I feel reward, before I go overboard. Understanding the feelings before may help you develop other coping mechanisms or behaviors.

Finally, it's good that you're meeting with a dietitian. Maybe s/he can help you balance out your calories throughout the day. For example, the morning after a binge, you can still have a light breakfast. Might not make sense, but it will help you set up your calories in a more balanced way food the remainder of the day.

Anyway, we're here for you.
