So, I'm trying to put an end to a week of totally self-destructive activity. My eating has been out of control. From boredom, to being lonely, to just plain ole being greedy. So really, who goes to the grocery store, buys groceries and then stores them all in her bedroom? I have one more time to get up to go to the restroom and get a "quick" snack from my closet before lying down again and I am pretty sure that I am just gonna pop. I couldn't even roll over. Not only that, if you are going to the restroom eight times a night, no wonder I am waking up full as a tick. JUST BEING HONEST. But really, who am I fooling? I know what I am doing. So, so what, I am sure I am not the only stressed out, lonely, single mother on the planet. And not only that, this is not a new development either. So I have gotta get this thing together and soon because if I don't, I may as well write my own obituary because I am killing myself with all of these unhealthy habits. So I have been telling myself that as long as I think I am cute, no one will truly notice how out of whack my body and overall health is. WELL.....LIAR, LIAR, PANTS NOT ONLY ON FIRE BUT SPLIT DOWN THE SEAT!! GET REAL GIRL AND GET IT TOGETHER.

    I know exactly what you mean. "Closet" eating doesn't have to be int closet... I stash my food in the car or my desk. I used to snack on anything from the gas station on the way home for dinner.

Anyway, this journey is for you and it certainly will be... but you mentioned a single Mom, so you have to keep those beautiful kids in mind too.

Good luck girl

    Your comments about stashing the groceries in the bedroom are hilarious - and ring all too true with me. Oh, don't I know how that is!

The good thing is now you're confronting the problem and you've joined a community focussed on health. There's no time like the present, thinks me!

    It helps a lot and thank you for taking the time to share. I helps so much to know that I am not alone. Seems as though we've been in the same boat! I've heard of Dr. Fuhrman ....I think I'll look it up! Thank you so much :).

    I can relate! If you've ever researched healthy nutrition sites while having a coke and chips with dip for lunch, topped off by a donut, you'll get where I'm coming from. I KNEW what I wanted to do, I KNEW what I wanted to eat, and even had my fridge full of healthy stuff, but that stuff would spoil because I'd eat junk food instead. I finally found out that foods can trigger chemical releases in the brain similar to what an alcoholic gets from booze. Something's different about the brain/biochemistry of some people that predisposes them to addiction. And fats, salts, and refined sugars do this to some people. To make a double-whammy, then the body, knowing it's not getting the micronutrients (vitamins and minerals) that it needs send out MORE hunger signals.But, of course, an addict doesn't reach for a carrot! It's a real vicious cycle. Dr. Joel Fuhrman's plan helped me. I relapsed after losing about 10 pounds, but I'm back on track now. (not sure if Sparkpeople lets us mention specific sites, but you can google him) If I find myself relapsing again, I am going to contact a local specialty clinic that deals with eating disorders. I think they call it compulsive overeating. It's like bulimia, but without the purging and it's a recognized eating disorder, just like anorexia or bulimia. (And lots of insurance plans will cover this type of care.) Anyway, if anything I've said resonates with your experience, well, hope it helps. If not, just ignore it.
