Default I'd do anything for help right now

I have been binging so much lately and I honestly don't know how to stop myself.

My whole family is really really thin- and every pound I gain makes me look more and more like a giant hippo between them.

I can't stop eating when I start. So I avoid eating and then sometime in the day I eat 1000-3500 calories.

I need support and feel a bit hopeless.

I will be off to med school from 25 Jan and I'm trying to sort this out before then. I would love to support someone else with a similar problem. Maybe we can support each other & encourage each other to eat healthily/exercise? And email each other when we feel like eating a whole tub of ice cream?

If your stats are correct , you are not overweight. 105 pounds is a little low for 5'2.5" inches tall, maybe I am misreading them.

Thanks for the reply.

The weight isn't the major factor- even though I am gaining weight like crazy. I think I'm 110 now. Next week it'll probably climb up to 120 at this rate.

I'm also extremely petite- I wear like a shoe size 3.

I just don't know how to stop. I think I'm going to make my stomach tear apart or I'll get a heart attack -or something bad is going to happen. I also isolate myself until the swelling in my face has come down and my belly doesn't look like a balloon anymore. It's horrible. I can't sit/sleep comfortably and I bough huge T-shirts to hide it. I'm ashamed.

I am reading about a "binge eating disorder" and I'm doing my best to recover- and my binges are getting "smaller" and "further apart"- which is what is recommended by specialists uhm well I'm trying. I just need a buddy- I think support systems can help you "in the moment"

Do you have an eating plan ? Do you exercise ? I find that if I eat 6 time a day it helps to curb the binges. I don't mean 6 meals , I mean 6 times
Breakfast
Snack
Lunch
Snack
Dinner
Snack
My snacks are usually less than 100 calories. Perhaps you could have some planned snacks it would help to control the binges.
I have binge urges, too, but try to control them as much as possible, do something else when the urge arises to take your mind off of it. If you do binge don't beat yoursef up over it just get right back on track.
Good luck.

Hi Jaxxy001

Have you spoken to a doctor about these thoughts? It sounds as if there is more than a binge eating disorder going on, possibly some anxiety or something to that effect. Good luck

Thank you bargoo. My eating plan is utter chaos right now. And I will start looking for a balanced one with what you recommended immediately. I appreciate the advice so much.

I used to be a very good breakfast-snack-lunch-dinner-eater - but it all changed after we moved to another town. So maybe Sacha is right. Maybe this is a lot more emotion-related than me just being ever hungry.

I am going to start to set my surroundings up for success and work on this. Exercise should work as well.

Thank you so much! I feel motivated

Hey if you'd like to become a buddy I'd love to be one! I'm not overweight in terms of BMI but I know how you feel with the binges, I've been having them the past 2 years on and off, sometimes I'll lose a lot of weight be super healthy and then all of the sudden I binge like crazy and feel like I have absolutely no control over myself. My email is [email protected] if you'd like to talk!
