The epic thread. I reviewed all the pages and couldn't believe I took part in this discussion. Gosh I clung so hard to my anti-carb stance. I fought it so hard. But I can see glimmers of the IE me in my posts.
And to those who were calm cool and collected on this thread, magical you are my inspiration. Southermaven, you are guiding torch. Freelancemamma you are the logical voice. I'm being all gooey but it's been a whole year since this thread started and it's still relevant in so many ways.
"Binging is a descent into a world where every restriction... is cut loose. At its core is a feeling of deprivation.. a feeling you can never get enough. Binges do not signify a lack of willpower or inability to care for yourself. On the contrary, binges are a urgent attempt to care for yourself when you feel uncared for. They are the voice of survival. Binges are the mark of the self that says, 'I am tired of feeling deprived, of being told I am wrong, that I am bad." - Geneen Roth
