Surprised myself...

Saturday, August 14, 2010

So early this week I get that ... feeling...
that caged panther feeling...
everyone and everything p!$$es me off...
hungry, hungry, hungry....

Even without tenderness in the sisters (an homage to Teenybikini ;-) I know it's TOM coming to say hello.

... and I KNOW what's going to happen next...
eating, eating, eating.
I usually hide when I do this. I step around the corner in the kitchen to eat the chip or the cookie. I don't want anyone to see this shameful binge behavior.

So THIS time, I started eating stuff that I didn't want to eat, that I knew I shouldn't eat and instead of hiding, I said to my husband, "You gotta help me here. You gotta save me from myself. I don't want to eat this sh!t."

and he just stayed in the kitchen with me and I ate some grapes and I was okay.

but I stopped myself... with help, but I ASKED for help...
This from a former binge/purge eater.

I guess it doesn't sound like much when I write it down like that, but it was HUGE.

So, anyway...
how's that for a lame ending to a blog?
good night all...

    Asking for help was one of the hardest things for me to do for a long time. It takes a lot of courage.

    And that is what you have, especially with the whole eating/not eating thing. I am very, very, very proud of you.

    Way to put it out there, gorgeous.

    Fabulous! I should have done that yesterday. I ended up eating 3 icecream bars. I would have had more but that was all there was! Next time, I am going to call for help. So great!!!!

    For a lot of us, asking for help is the toughest thing to do. Good job in asking and good job in picking a husband who's so supportive!
