Holly is right, coming back here and being willing to start again is the first step. Whatever way you choose to do this it has to be something you can live with forever because no matter what, you will always have issues with food, we all will. That is why fad diets usually don't last because once we get the weight off we just go back to normal and normal is what got us here in the first place! This has to be an every day process. Day in and day out, consistantly making healthy, loving food and exercise choices. Now, this doesn't mean that you can't falter because you will, we all do, it's just a fact of life. But the trick is not to wait to get back on track. If everything is going along great and then all of a sudden you get hit with a binge, don't wait until the next day or week to get back on plan. Start as soon as the binge is over and don't let the guilt continue the cycle. What good does it do to give up on the rest of the day after a binge? It will only make the damage worse. We all make these mistakes, we're only human. We just have to accept it when it happens and move on. That is the only way we can take control of the cycle instead of letting the cycle control us. You can do this Celina, you've got to believe that. I'm glad you came back, we're here if you need us. Good luck!!
