Dont give up, everyday is a new challenge. I was a binge eater, ocasionally it still happens but not like before. I found that I truely ate out of boredum. I was labeled as anorexic, because i limited my food intake and then would binge. My body was telling me that i needed food. Make sure that you are eating enough. I thought a salad at lunch was good but i soon found out that I was actually starving my body. I was also working out twice a day. Relook your workouts and food intake because there could be something missing.

I could use a lot of help here most days. So far I am not binging, but I am to the point that I am barely eating anything. I woke up this way and it could be depression.

I never say anything as an excuse. I have tried what they say and it may work depending on what it is for 1-3 days and then I lose it for at least a month. I have been trying to control myself from this, but I have been discontinued from speech since they think I do things wrong on purpose when I am with multiple disabilities at the same time. I know that my confidence could be part of the issue and I am trying to improve in that. I have been with low confidence ever since I was 7.

Onicam: I read this entire feed and hope you will not be offended in me saying a few things.

First, I feel like every time you are offered a possible solution to anything (binge eating, talking with your parents, etc) you have an excuse as to why it won't work. I could be wrong, but that is the perception.

As someone who has struggled with emotional and binge eating as well as body images since I was 13, I finally realized that I was my own worst enemy. I was defeating myself. Never giving myself a chance because I always had an excuse as to why I couldn't or what was getting in the way. I prayed just like you, did yoga, had terrible anxiety and much more, but I was still miserable and stuck in my horrible cycle of being destructive not only in my daily interactions but in thought.

What finally changed me was hitting my rock bottom: The love of my life broke up with me one week after I found out some devastating news. I felt alone and hopeless. I blamed myself and begged him to reconsider. I was so afraid I would never be loved again because I honestly didn't love myself! All he while he wasn't the best person for me. But I was willing to settle because I didn't want to work on being a better me and loving myself completely.

For 2 years I wallowed in misery. Outwardly I lied to everyone, but inside I hated life, myself, and my ex for the pain I was feeling. Then I woke up one day at 214 lbs and didn't recognize myself in the mirror. My entire attitude was holding my me back from a wonderful full life. I no longer had confidence in myself, which affected everything including my career.

I immediately started taking full responsibility for my feelings and how I reacted to those around me. I distanced myself from negative people who seemed to enjoy my misery. And I slowly started telling myself every time I remembered to, that I was strong, confident, beautiful, and willing to make the necessary changes to over come the dark sadness I had been feeling for so long. I knew life would still be the same. I would still have stress that I couldn't control (but would choose my reaction) I knew I would still feel lonely and unsure, but I also knew I wasn't REALLY living in my current state and I desperately wanted to be the girl I once was.


My point in all this, is that all of the members who have responded have given excellent tips and you owe it to yourself to explore them or re-explore them with an open heart this time. I think you feel so defeated that you aren't willing to try anymore. You may go through the motions, but are you being 100% honest with yourself? I found that I emotional eat when I give my control away. And I do that by making others responsible for how I feel. I wish you nothing but the best my friend and I hope I'm not offensive! I just know sometimes hearing the tough truth helps more than we realize!


Cheers!

I am big time struggling here. I am between the food addict, emotional eater, and compulsive eater all in one. I could have ate a lot more then what I did, but I had over 2300 calories and most of them were from binging. I have only been binge free 2 times this month and that was one day then binge for a few weeks and then 2 days ago and then binge even more.

Onicam, you asked, "How does someone get away from food addiction? I know if I just stop then I will be in starvation mode. I tend to go from one extreme to the next."

As someone who started the "Intuitive eating" journey back in the 80s, I have some ideas and you can read about them in my blog. It's called, "How Can I Escape Food Addiction?

I had a huge binge yesterday to the point that I did not want to track it, afraid of the number that will come up. Dont even want to think of how many steps backward will this sabotage my week efforts. emoticon

No amount of guilt can change the past and no amount of worrying can change the future. Go easy on yourself.

Onicam first you have to realize that you are not the only one with this situation, you are no alone. You don't seem to be overweight at all, so that is a relief. Also your binges are minimal, you wouldn't believe how mine are, I actually eat more than 7,000 calories per day. Some days up to 15,000, it is crazy. And after this i feel sooo terrible, i do not appreciate myself and always feel like i am fat. I have to exercise daily, even if it is for 10 minutes, or else I tend to have binges. Every weeken I have them, when i am alone and bored. They recommended me to do yoga which i see you already do, this is a good start. They also recommended me to find some passion, an area where I can enjoy my talent rather than be scared of being alone, like art, music, writing. My grandfather was recently diagnosed with cancer, and I am extremely sensisitve, so it has affected me a lot. So I can relate to you, but I believe that I do not have any kind of disorder, only a momentaneous conflict with anxiety which will go away if we work hard. I try to enjoy my binges, but they normally exceed so then I feel sick, however the days that I enjoy them they don't seem so bad and helps me feel better.

I feel like binging. My grandmother is contagious with cdif again. Her dr. tested her and called last night. I do not know what is going to happen, but the dr. in the ER and in the rehab place did not do much for her at all.

Don't beat yourself up about your anxiety. I know first hand it's a problem that you can't control just because you want to. If you see a counselor or a doctor, you might be able to get some medication for it, which is what I have had to do, but that medication can be backed up by the good things you're already doing, such as yoga.

Try writing out a list of things you like about yourself of that you think you do well. They do not have to be physical characteristics, but they can be. Try to be honest with yourself; even if you wouldn't win an Olympic swimming competition, for example, you can still like that you swim, or something similar. This gets positive things down on paper, which you can keep to remind you of the good when you're feeling bad.

Since you do yoga, you know some yoga breathing techniques that will help you when you feel anxious. I like this one: Using the tips of your fingers on both hands, tap rhythmically (gently!) in the center of your forehead twelve or so times, while breathing deeply. Then tap the area right under your collar bones, then your sternum. Repeat as often as you need. Try to focus on a physical activity rather than a physical state. I also like to play nature sounds when I do this, because as corny as it sounds, it really helps to soothe me.

It sounds like you're being hard on yourself. It takes baby steps, and you're off to a good start. Keep going, and don't give up!

I am not on a low carb diet. I have been with anxiety since I was 10. I do go to yoga and have been for over 2 years. I would have thought that this would be keeping me under control, but I still have them regularly.

DYNAMIC, thank you for the detailed email. I don't think I have ever seen a quick fix (otherwise I wouldn't fail so much myself), and I really appreciate the time you put in to jot it all down for us.
You actually got me thinking back to my childhood, and now am realizing that I don't ever re remember my mom NOT being on a diet, and struggling, then gaining more weight herself, losing the battle, etc. I guess we really do retain and are trained in many ways, without knowing it!
my binging started here and there about 6 years ago when a rare disease I have suddenly surfaced. No one knew what it was and I was in so much pain daily. Not even my poor husband believed me at first. Very lonely feeling.
Then I got diagnosed, but there isn't a cure, so then I ate even more and more, until I would be sick. But I am only harming myself, and actually making my disease worse.
so here I am, week 3 on SP and I have learned so much from all you. Thank you.
I don't know if this disease will ever have a cure, but I need to stop this bad relationship with food, re train my brain and take a better outlok on life.
I also started the South Beach Diet, and dare I say it, it seems to be helping with some cravings!
Good luck today everyone!

Anxiety is a bad trigger, and I'm sorry you have to deal with it. There's no quick fix for it, but try Googling yoga poses and breathing techniques. They may not be able to help you when you're in full anxiety mode, but doing yoga regularly can help decrease anxiety in general. I know it's not easy to rationalize when you get the urge to binge, but eating will acutally end up increasing your anxiety level, and won't do anything to help you.

Can I ask if you've had these anxiety problems before you went on a no-carb diet?

I probably can't tell you how to to stop entirely, but I can tell you how I stopped. Everyone's different, but this may help someone else out as well:

I suffered from binge eating from when I was twelve to when I was twenty or so. My mother was critical of her body, which led her to be critical of my body, which led me to be critical of my body. Low self-esteem runs in the family. My mother started to diet when I was thirteen, and it wasn't long before she suggested I start it, too, which made my condition even worse. While she never acted out of anything but concern for me, my mother never understood that what she was doing was harmful to me.

The presence of food was a trigger, especially salty or sweet food. Like most of you, anything in individual baggies (100 calorie packs, things like that) started off a massive food hunt. My brother is an athlete, and we kept the kitchen stocked with high-calorie things for him to eat, and left overs from the night before. Things I would inevitably get into and devour. It wasn't the wanting them that was the problem. It was the knowing they were there and that I shouldn't eat them that was the problem. It was wanting to feel something that was the problem. It was the wanting to do something that was the problem. I would eat until it hurt, and then I'd eat some more because somehow some part of me thought it was make me feel better. This would happen again and again and again.

When I moved out of my house to go to college, I knew something had to change. I decided that I wouldn't buy snacks to keep in my room, but would rely on the meal plan to feed me. I did lose weight, but I didn't address the bigger issue. My roommate bought snacks, which I would get into every so often, but because they belonged to her I didn't want to finish them, so I never did the kind of damage to myself that I had before. The problem was that I was still not facing what it was I had done to myself. I still had a problem feeling satisfied with what I put into my body, because I was still so unsatisfied being inside my own body.

Little by little, bit by bit, I have managed to come into my own. Most of this was through the support and encouragement of friends, people who love and respect me for the person I am, and who have helped me through my dark times. But I am also proud to say that a lot of it does come from me, because I realized that in spite of my faults, I do like who I am and who I can become. Taking the steps to address and work on my self-esteem has helped me with my BE in incredible ways.

I am a stronger person than my mother. We have repaired our relationship, and are closer than we have ever been, but I have to set strict rules about what she can and cannot say to me, and what she will and will not be able to say to my children when I have them. I will not pass this on to a third generation.

Most of my binge symptoms are under control, so much so that I don't think about them much anymore. Most days I don't want to think about them, because that place was very dark, and I want to have my days be brighter. But every once in a while I have to check myself and make sure that I'm not just ignoring a bad habit because I don't want to think about my bad days. Being conscious of what goes into my body doesn't have to mean obsessing about it. That's a lesson I'm still learning.

Lessons I can distill down in bullet form:

-Your self-esteem issues are the first thing you have to tackle, because otherwise you're just treating a symptom. Find a support group, a friend, or a counselor. It may be embarrassing to talk about, but you'll get over the embarrassment quickly when you feel the relief at being able to say this to a person outside the one in your head.

-If you don't like a situation, change it. Too often we can feel defeated before we start. Just because we're prone to making mistakes doesn't mean we can't make positive choices for ourselves, too. It's not about "good" and "bad," but about what's good for us.

-Write out a grocery list before you go shopping, and then go shopping with a buddy. Have them hold the list. Don't keep snacks around the house if snacks are a problem, or snack on fruit like apples, which have all the crunch and sweetness but no demons.

-Get out of the house if you feel the urge to eat something without the hunger to back it up. Go to the park. Go to the library. See an exhibit. Walk by the river. Ride your bike. Endorphins from the exercise will help replace those from the food, and will make you feel more satisfied.

- Don't fixate on that candy bar you had when you shouldn't have. Just do what you can to make sure it's not two bars.

-Move your furniture. Being in that same chair in that same position in the living room might send psychological signals to eat because that's the normal activity in that position. Mix things up.

-Read a book. Don't watch TV. Write a journal. Use your hands.

-Drink tea. Lots and lots of tea.

-Give yourself time. I've been working on this problem actively for three years, and sometimes I still devour all the leftover pizza. One bad day doesn't mean you're backsliding.

-You can do this.

-You can do this.

-You can do this.

All my love to everyone here.

I do the same thing. I eat too little during the day, and then someone brings in cupcakes for an office Bday, and I avoid that, but later when I get home I am just so hungry and then seem to set myself up for disaster.
I also can't really portion sweets/salty stuff since it triggers my eating and leaves me craving more of both, oh boy!
I've learned the hard way that snack packs and breaking down bags of things into baggies just doesn't work for me.
Just started south beach diet phase 1 (I'm on day 4) and I hope to God it strips some of these cravings away soon. I feel like I need an ede to arm myself better for weekends especially.
Good luck!

I think I am often letting my calories drop too low during the day as well. I seem to want to "save up" my calories in case I want them at the end of the day. That leaves me really hungry some evenings and when I decide I will just have a little piece of chocolate or a few chips I end up on a full fledged binge instead. I think if I balance my meals and snacks better throughout the day it will help with this (hopefully). I also seem to have trouble with certain foods, for example if I eat something sweet like chocolate then I want something salty to balance it which will also triggers a binge, if I just don't have the first thing then I seem to be able to avoid the binge (some of the time anyhow).

Most of the days I have been ok since I have gone though OA meetings. I was with them for about a month and I have binged once and it was this weekend. I have been ok today, but Sunday and part of yesterday I did not want to get out of bed. I was that far depressed or something because that was new behavior for me.

Good for you TALLYWOMAN. I just started day 2 of the South Beach Diet- Phase 1. I guess they are similar - ? I miss sweets though, and one can only eat so much SF jello...
Gotta stick to it though - I need results : )

4 weeks ago my gastroenterologist reamed me about my weight and eating habits. He cut me off at the knees when I started whining and making excuses. I was shocked when he told me to go on a modified Atkins (phase II). Well,it's working. Yes, I'm happy I'm losing and my blood pressure went down. But, I'm even more happy that I haven't binged since starting. I'm amazed at how it stopped the craving and put the triggers at bay. I always said it was easier quitting smoking than binging because you can quit tobacco completely. But, how can you quit eating entirely?

I'm not pushing this plan on anyone, it's just something that's working for me. Good luck everyone.

Hi-thanks for your honesty (really!)
I have been where you are at too many times. And am afraid every day that i'll do it again.
currently I seem to be OK during the weekdays, but awful on weekends. I noticed that like you, some weekdays I tend to eat only about 1100 cals a day (too little). When I do that for about 3 days or more, it triggers a binge since my body is depleted, and that makes the urge irresistible.
I hope you can read this and back away from the things you know are not nourishing to your body (and spirit), and maybe add in some more lean protein to fill you up more while you are going through this tough time!

One thing I have been trying to do lately is. . . . . When I have a craving I try to set up a time to hang out with my friends. Normally if I have a craving for cookies or something, I can hold off for a day or two. And if I can set up a time to spend with friends I will eat it while I am with them. I ALMOST NEVER pig out as much in front of others. So it helps me to fulfill the need, but not pig out tooooo much!

" No man, for any considerable period, can wear one face to himself, and another to the multitude, without finally getting bewildered as to which may be the true."
-Nathaniel Hawthorne

For me, I have to chose to do something else that doesn't involve food. I can't keep it around me and I've planned all meals. I don't want to put in more calories than my recommended intake so I don't overeat. I don't want to disappoint my team, my husband (who is very supportive) or myself.

I'm reading about everyone's different situations and I know they are tough, every one of them, and some of the problems are similar to my own, but eating isn't the answer and it's not going to help and if anything it'll make you groggy, spend money on food you don't need (perhaps causing financial stress) and fall asleep early without resolving anything!

I know I'm on the drastic clean eating side right now and I know it's not forever that I can maintain this...but I can try. Good luck everyone.

I am having another anxiety day.I don't see myself handling my grandmother's situation well and then add on tests on top which brings on anxiety by itself.

If I ever find the answer to "How to STOP Binging", I might actually find success in my reaching my goal weight. This binge eating stuff is the devil at work in my life, I'm sure.

Ugh!

ONE THING THAT HELPS ME IS TO HAVE LOW CALORIE FOOD TO BINGE ON. I know from personal experience this isn't always possible. Sometimes I am so set on self destruction!

I do not know what to do. I did not have much more than 1000 calories today and my grandmother is in the ER which set me off binging before. I have control with the meals, but when I binge I have no control at all.

Part of my problem is that if I get full at all then I am not aware of it. If someone asks me if I am hungry I would always say that I can eat.

I think you should do some jumping jacks and that may help you stay awake, binging is not going to help you stay awake or feel good about yourself.. .. if you are hungry eat something healthy.. yogurt, fruit and cheese, or a bowl of healthy cereal..
good luck Onicam..

So far I have not binged today, but I am about to. I had to take benadryl since I am reacting to something and it puts me to sleep. I have class in a little bit so I cannot exercise due to time so else can I do to stay awake.

I will pray for you, if they feel they are in charge of your life--that is their problem, not yours. You need to do what is best for you.. Dont hurt yourself with negative thoughts, it does not help anyone.. Maybe if they see you are trying to be more positive it will help them be positive too..

I get SSI, but who can live on less than 2000 a month. I should be getting the SSI ever since I was young, but acording to them my sight is too good even though I need everything enlaraged and is not able to drive. They would not be understanding with my learning disibility and now that the psycological is over 8 years old they truly will not accept it. Even though they saw the psycological years ago they feel that I did not have disibilities to that point until I was 22. I have always though myself as weak and I am constantly with negative thinking. They feel that they are in charge and that I should change and that they are not going to.

Onicam, it sounds like you have a lot of things trying to work against you.. I understand.
The one thing you do have going for you is your strength to choose not to blame yourself for what you are being put through. and not to choose to hurt yourself with negative comments. Believing in yourself that things will get better I think would help you.
I think if you are very disabled and are not able to work you should look into social security benefits.. if you really cannot work, there are things out there that could help you financially.
Maybe you could have a talk with your mother and stepfather and explain to them how badly they make you feel? have you done that?
