I am going through that right now. I took a break to reach out. I am sticking with all healthy, non fat foods so I am filling up on veggies and fruit. I realize that I can make anything a binge. Yes, even fruit and veggies... how UNfun is that!? Right now I have broccli in the microwave. I should be full but I keep filling the tank.... errrrrr.... emoticon

BLINGQUEEN:O) sends you {{{{{{{{HUGS}}}}}}}}} can you feel them? :O)

I am new here. I think about loosing weight on a daily basis, but never put forth the effort. I too am an over eater. Even though I am full I will still eat if I am not finished with my meal. I like they weigh food taste and just can't help myself. Hopefully this program can help me get motivated to lose this much unwanted weight.

Thank you for posting this. Today was THAT day for me. I over ate and I felt bad while I was doing it. Now I just need to forgive myself and let tomorrow be another day.

This has been happening to me recently. My stomach isn't hungry, but my mouth feels like eating-eating-eating!!!!!!!!! I hate it. It's like I HAVE to eat. I try to distract myself with other things, but my mind is always saying, 'when I am done with this run/shower/gardening/phone call/book I am going to eat that dehydrated fruit!' Then I have spoiled my calories for the day with the binge and want to throw up. I am seeing a therapist for emotional eating, but it is not a quick fix and I'm afraid of getting enormous before I get a handle on whatever the problem is.

I can so relate. At night I get so hungry that I eat and don't keep my food choices in line with what is best for me.

The journey of 1000 miles starts with a single step.

God grant me the serenity to accept the things I cannot change, the courage to change the things I can and the wisdom to know the difference.

Let go and let God.

CORISSAC11,

I think every single member of spark (me included) has had to deal with the hungry horrors. What to do ? Try to make healthier choices if you can, but don't beat yourself up if you end up over doing it. We all have days like this. As long as it doesn't happen every single day, you'll be okay. If it does ? You need to take a closer look at what you've been eating.

One reason some people starting over eating is because they didn't eat enough. Many women in an effort to be "good" tend to drastically cut their calories. What happens when they eat too little in the morning is that they end up eating too much by the afternoon. So, do make sure you're eating healthy foods that nourish your body. And take a close look at the foods you've been eating today. Were they high in fiber ? Try to make sure you're eating plenty of high fiber foods. Foods that are high in fiber help keep us full for longer.

Did you eat a little too much sugar ? Some times when we have a small treat, the sugar rush causes us to crave more. It's a vicious cycle. Eat more sugar and you crave more sugar.

Mostly, be kind to yourself as you would to others. You ate the food. You log the food. You move one. Later today or tomorrow, you do your best to try to eat more mindfully.

of course, lots of people are the same way.

you CAN stop eating... but it's hard.

a couple of things are happening; your "full" signals (leptin is the chemical that helps you know when you are full) may be out of whack due to medical reasons, certain foods (like artificial sweeteners, they say), or just eating too fast. you might want to get that checked out if you literally feel like you aren't ever getting that feeling of being full...

much more likely is that it is emotional eating, and you are just seeking the sensation of food to "fill up" an empty-feeling place inside you. this is totally normal! in fact, sadly, it seems to sort of be the human condition... what we need to learn is to fill that with other things... activities, calling a friend or family member, volunteering our time to help others, etc.

best of luck to you on this journey!

I just cannot stop eating. While I eat I am saying I am full or I should be eating something different but my hands and mouth are missing the memo. Can anyone else relate?
