I"m so glad I found 3FC, and this particular section of the site. Binge eating is exactly why I gained weight.
I started binge eating when my husband deployed Sept of 2009. It would get really bad when I hadn't heard from him in a while. You know those sugar cookies that have 1/2 an inch of frosting on them that you can buy at WAlmart? I would eat a full container of those within a couple of days. I ate a tone of junk while he was gone. I had such a hard time with dealing with the deployment, so I turned to food.
He has been home for almost a year now... but I still have that nasty habit of binge eating. Especially when I have had a long day at work. The worst part is, once I"m done binging, I feel worse than I did before. So I go lay down for a nap. Thanks to these bad habits I"m always fatigued. It is a vicious cycle!
I looked through the Overeaters anonymous section. But I"m really looking for personal stories. I want to know what you guys are doing to deal with your binging habits. I need motivation, and I also need a better way to deal with stress.
