I was thiiis *hold fingers 1/4 inch apart* close to binge eating again tonight.

I recognized the precipitating thoughts and emotions, in detail. I recognized the distorted thinking patterns luring me.

I went on the Panic Button! message boards and saw that some of the responses to previous threads weren't as immediate as I needed for a deterrent.

I listened in on 1 1/2 Overeaters Anonymous telephone meetings.

I didn't binge.

    Good for you having the strength to stay away from binge eating. The best thing is that you have different tools to help you! The boards are funny..sometimes people respond and other times when you want a response there is no response. It is good to turn to other things to help you.
I have been fighting binge eating for a year. Sometimes drinking hot tea helps.
Have a great day.

    Good for you! It's great that you made a decision that you'll feel good about tomorrow. Don't let the days you don't do well drag you down too much - I've found myself eating or drinking to drown out the guilt from the day before... I'm proud of you for doing the opposite today!
