My best friend in Ohio sent me a care package (because she loves me!) which was really cool. HOWEVER, she sent a HUGE tupperware container full of home-made double chocolate chip cookies, a package of Hershey's kisses, and a box of chocolates from Target, not knowing that I was on a diet. I was pretty good about the cookies --I gave most of them away to my fellow students and labmates (though I ate a few of them) but as soon as nobody was looking the Hershey kisses went down without a fight. Ditto the box of chocolates (only 4 pieces, but still another 400 calories). I now realize that I can't trust myself around chocolate, cookies, or anything made with sugar. I just can't do it.

I binged after dinner yesterday, mostly on healthy, fiberous foods but it left me bloated and uncomfortable. I didn't crave anything in particular, I just felt tired and unfocused and I had all this school work that I had to get done, instead I just binged and went to sleep early. I need to slowly talk myself through my problems instead of just reaching for food as usual.

Default Hi

Hi All, I am a newbie and so happy I found you all! My binge problem is I am so so good all day long, eating right, fruits, blah blah blah. Then I go to sleep and BAM four hours later I wake up, wide awake and start eating! I am a single mom with 5 kids so I enjoy this early morning time in a quiet house awake and alone, but I eat...and eat. You get the picture. of course I wake up feeling guiltier than a nun in a whorehouse! Sometimes I wish I had someone I could call to chat with in the wee hours because let me tell you a carrot stick does not replace the feeling of a few bowls of cocoa puffs!
Thanks for letting me vent!
A.

Last night we ordered indian food delivery and I devoured my entire meal of chicken tikka masala, two samosas, one large nan and at least 3 cups of rice. The portion was HUGE. I dunno, I felt like I NEEDED to eat all of it... or somehow felt like since it was delivery, and we don't do it often and it's special, I deserved to totally pig out. Makes me sad that I can't enjoy delivery every now and then and eat like a normal person... instead, when I think of ordering, I get scared and anxious...

THEN the next morning, instead of being a good girl, what did I have for breakfast? Instead of my usual fruit & yogurt combo I had a giant CINNAMON ROLL.

**sigh**

Yogachick,

I have the same urge to have something sweet after dinner .... I usually munch on some dried apricots or dried cranberries. I am sure there a lot of sugar in them but still better than junk food.

It's only late afternoon and I'm already 1400 calories over today's limit. I'm going to try to get some work out in tonight and skip breakfast tomorrow. It feels like half of me is trying to sabotage myself while the other half scrambles to undo the damage. Two stressful weeks ahead, I'm just hoping there will be a truce.

Is this a confession or not, I had two beers, light, popcorn, chocolate, black licorice tonight... I don't know why I just wanted to EAT. I've been so GOOD, so clean lately. I guess partly it's because I'm about to push weight loss again, I haven't been journaling in over a week so this won't go down on paper. At least the beer was light, the popcorn was organic and light, the licorice was from the health store - and I didn't eat the entire box as I would have in the old days. I just feel fat late tonight, stupid for eating like that at night.

Hello - I am new to this.. and Yep - a binger.. For the past few months I've found that I binge right after work... After reading this forum I've discovered that 'yes this is a problem' and some helpful tools on how to break this behavior.

I have found that a can of diet root beer - can fill that gap between 3:00 and dinner time...

5 days in - so far so good. Thanks for everyones insight and advice.. It's helping!

My niece sent me homemade cookies and a large bag of M&Ms in the mail for Easter. I ate the whole thing by 10 am this morning. Ugh, why can't I control myself with sugar?!
