Thanks for all the kind wishes!

@ Jitzuroe -- day one has been frequently lately. I'm looking into "Eat Stop Eat" ... but I think Eat probably still doesn't = binge :(

Regarding your question about it getting easier. The truth may be a little hard to take. Yes, it does get easier, but then it gets hard, then easy, etc. Almost no one goes from bingeing to not bingeing straight away. Most people have varying success with not bingeing for a long time, but it you keep at it, the gaps between binges will increase. YOu can have great success for weeks or even months and then have a relapse. If you understand that that is part of the process and not get caught up in failure, you can do it. Statistically, it takes 2-5 years of implementing good habits for weight loss before relapse drops significantly for those who have lost weight. That's why it's so important not to be too heroic from the beginning with trying to eat low calories AND clean AND not binge AND etc. Keep eating good meals, keep finding other things to do with your time other than eat or think about it, keep finding a way to fit even 10 minutes a day of exercise in ... We can increase the odds of success just by acknowledging that not giving up is worth it. I've been at it for two years now with some ups and downs but I'm stronger than I've ever been. I even lost weight over the holidays! (Not showing on my ticker tape yet.) emoticon

emoticon for joining the "Writers' Support Group" team. I wish you much success with your weight loss. Take things one healthy meal, one exercise, one positive day at a time and always believe in yourself you can do this, one pound at a time. emoticon -- Lou
