Hi yuyu, I am here to help if I can. I think you started very well. I to did the same thing. I still don't know what happened myself. All I can say is DON"T give up! Keep trying.

I am a compulsive eater. I eat for all emotional situations or just because I feel like it. I am trying to change my thinking , so that I keep myself occupied with something else instead of eating. Otherwise food rules my life day in day out. I am trying to rule my life in what I choose to put into my mouth. Not what my brain tells me to eat. It's all about changing or controlling our way of thinking I guess.

I keep what is known to me as a journal. In that I have FAT photos of myself and I look at them everyday and imagine myself thinner and happy. I think it's called "visualisation". I have a vision of me being happy and being able to go into a shop to buy clothes heaps smaller than the ones in the photos.

This dosen't always work though! Maybe you could try it.

I hope I have helped in some small way. Let me know how you go.

Yuyu, everyone "relapses". It's not like alcohol or drugs. You can't totally eliminate food from your life. The big problem is that when you fall off the wagon you can't beat yourself up. You have to be strong and get up and try again. Even if you fell off the wagon for a few weeks. You can do it!! You have been doing so well.
Mum, what a good idea. Visualization is a great tool. I love your journal idea. Wouldn't it be cool if you could find a website that put your head on a thin, healthy body? Then you could see what you look like thin.

ttfn, morningglory
