Default Why Do You Want To Stop Being A Binge Eater

It is motivating to me and to others whenever we see reasons why someone is trying to do something. So lets answer the two questions below and inspire each other to keep working towards ending binge eating.

Why do you want to stop binge eating? I want to stop binge eating because it erases the progress that I make and I'm tired of feeling so out of control.

What do you want to accomplish by stopping it? I want to accomplish permanent and lasting weight loss so I can look better, have more confidence, and dress cuter.

It makes me feel heavy, gross, overstuffed and defeated. I HATE that feeling. I'm liking how I feel satisfied after a meal not overly stuffed where I get pain all the way to my left shoulder from gas.

What I want to accomplish: To finally have a healthy relationship with food and to enjoy the good stuff, the good foods that will fuel my body and make me feel energetic and ALIVE.

This is a great topic! Thanks!

I want to stop binge eating to 1) stop feeling guilty because I have to "hide" it from my DH and kids and 2) feel like I have control over my body & mind by breaking my addiction to food.

Why do you want to stop binge eating? I'm tired of not feeling in control of my own life, my own desires, and feeling like I'm hurting my body on a regular basis.

What do you want to accomplish by stopping it? Healthy weight and healthy relationship with food and my own emotions.

Because it isn't something a healthy, normal person does.

Aside from the reasons all listed above -- lose weight, keep it off, have a normal relationship with food, etc. But my biggest reason to stop binging was to have a life. For a VERY long time I prefered to be alone with my food. It is mandatory in my job to take an entire week off during the year. I got off work on Friday, went to the grocery store, Papa Johns and the chinese food place and then home. My car didn't leave my driveway for 10 days. I stayed inside and ate and ate and ate. All I did was binge and sleep.

On the days I had to work all I did was go home, binge, fall asleep. Lather, rinse, repeat. The weekends was just a short version of my vacation.

I had never in my life been so unhappy. But now... all smiles.

Question #1 Why do you want to stop binge eating?

For so many reasons...
-it makes me feel physically ill.
-my stomach gets distended and bloated.
-it makes me want to vomit and sometimes I do.
-I can't exercise when I binge.
-I feel guilty.
-I feel ugly.
-it makes me lock myself up alone in my apartment.
-I have no energy and feel 'hungover' the next day.
-I'm in physical pain after a binge.
-I'm gassy and smell bad
-I feel fat. I am fat.
-I feel weak.
-I feel unhealthy.
-I feel hopeless.
-I am alone and I will never love myself until this ends.

This is everything that I don't for myself and my life.


Question #2 What do you want to accomplish by stopping it?

I want to qualify to run the Boston Marathon.
I want to build self-esteem.
I want to have the confidence to participate in my life and the world.

Why do you want to stop binge eating?

It is damaging to my body and my sense of self. It takes away the quality of my life and reduces it to physical and emotional pain.

What do you want to accomplish by stopping it?

To feel better. I focus 100% on defeating binge behaviour by concentrating on how I want to feel both physically and emotionally. I am finally making progress by lots of tough self-love and grasping the concept that all eating is a choice, I am never a victim.

This, this, 100 times this!
I'm also sick and tired of doing something I have to hide.

Why do I want to stop? Because food is not an answer to my problems. Because fat does not mask my emotions. Because eating does not lead to happiness.


What do I wish to accomplish? A want to have a normal relationship with food. I want to recognize hunger, satisfy hunger, and then move on with my day. I want to fulfill my nutritional needs. I want to control food, I don't want it to control me.

Why do i want to stop?

1. I want to look and feel great...fit into my clothes as I once did
2. Because the temporary bliss while binging simply isn't worth the post-guilt
3. Because despite many failed attempts, I KNOW I CAN!

What do i wish to accomplish?

1. Not being a slave to food.
