Here are the reasons why
1. I have been doing a good job of monitoring my food intake
2. I have lost a total of 18lbs since I begin this whole stop binge eating/weight loss journey.
3. Yesterday, I ate five correctly portioned HEALTHY meals.
4. I haven’t binged in a few days
6. I’m sick of hiding out in my apartment and actually have plans to go out and meet people and have fun
7. I hate myself a little less.
8. In one month, I have had more than 500 people visit my blog Weight Loss for Binge Eaters
10. For the first time in a while, my future doesn’t look so gloomy!
I’m so fucking weird. I’m hungry. I must be starving right now because I feel like passing out and I have a horrible headache. However, I’m NOT hungry!!! My body is hungry, yes. I can feel all of the physical signs. But mentally, the thought of putting good in my mouth makes me want to gag.
I’m not anorexic or anything. I’m not actively trying to avoid eating. I’m a binge eater and I don’t purge or exercise afterwards. What the hell is going on with me? Because right now, I’m going to fix myself a turkey burger and a side salad. But the idea of it is making me feel nauseated.
So instead of eating, I take a nap, which only leads me to binge eat later on, because (let’s go back to the beginning) I’m fucking STARVING!

I spent the past week, eating mostly unprocessed, whole foods. I’m very, very proud of myself. I think this is probably why I lost the 7lbs, without working out or anything.
I love to cook. I’m thinking that I can cook myself thin. I just have to stay motivated. Once I lose my motivation, then I don’t want to cook and I start eating crappy food.
Okay, so I need to start working out. I have worked out in like a year. I have no idea where to start. On top of that, my back is killing me. Normally, I would start out by walking a few miles a day, but it hurts to walk the two blocks to the store. I’m hoping that if I drop another 7-10lbs, that my back will feel much better. I have to be more active.
Step One for Fighting Binge Eating and Losing Weight.
1. Monitor your food and feelings
2. Get more sleep
I’m just getting started and I need people to follow!! I’m not going to fail this time!
From 330 pounds to 313 pounds… Doing nothing…
Went to the doctor’s the other. They kept harping on the fact that I need to lose weight. One kept trying to push weight watchers on me. For some reason I couldn’t say how I really felt. I never say what I really feel. So I leave frustrated and then I feel down and then I binge eat.
What I should have said to my doctor is I know that I need to lose weight and I’m working on it. You are not going to see me lose a lot of weight right away because I’m a binge eater. I need to work on that first or all efforts to lose weight will be for naught. So stop telling me to lose weight. Did it ever occur to you to ask, why haven’t I lost weight?
If they asked that, then I could open up and tell them. Maybe I should go see an American-born doctor? I do like their honesty.
Wow! You go girl! Great transformation!
