I'm new here and I briefly introduced myself over at the introduction board.
The main reason that I decided to join here is because I am currently at my highest ever weight (204lbs) and I'm beginning to gain a bit of insight in to my particular eating habits and I realise that I have a serious problem with binge eating.
I remember that I've always binge eaten from around puberty; particularly if I'm stressed, tired and ESPECIALLY when I'm alone.
For instance, I ate really well last week, very careful with a focus on nutrient rich food, around 1500-1600 cals per day... all good. Then on Friday night my partner went away for the weekend and I LET RIP! I overate every night to the point of nausea, ate leftover chocolate and pizza for breakfast... just utterly ridiculous amounts of the most disgusting foods you could imagine. It's like a dirty secret because I always choose the worst foods to eat alone.
I don't have a problem with good, nutritious food; I'm not fussy and I love to eat fruits & vegetables. It's just that I have a real propensity toward sabotaging my efforts, and letting my momentary desires get in the way of my long-term goals.
Does anybody else suffer with this and if so have you found a way to manage this while losing weight and getting healthier and fitter?
Any advice is very much welcome... thanks! K
