Hi and welcome to the team!emoticonemoticon
No,you are not alone.emoticon
I've been eating in secret since I've been a teenager and had to hide from my mom's disapproving look.
I still do it but not as often.
If i'm on a binge,i'll sometimes buy something like a box of vachon (or even a full cake),eat it in the car(yes,the whole box) and then discard the proof in a garbage can at a garage.
But I already put some garbage out my car window so I wouldn't bring it homeemoticon
I'm trying very hard to just eat in front of people and not worry about it,but I sometimes get nasty comments that are hard to get over(especially from my skinny sister).
I try to forgive her because she doesn't know any better.
It's really hard to get over the feeling of shame because we often want others to think we're in control and everythings ok,when,if we're bingeing, it's really not ok in our world.
It's not really anybody's business what we eat and don't eat anyways!emoticon
Hope you find what you need to get healthy in 2012!
Have a great week!

Unfortunately, I'm told the reason we hide our eating is because of a sense of shame. we are ashamed of eating and wanting to eat this food. I broke this habit by making a conscious effort, every time I wanted something, to eat it in front of someone, whether it's the kids or my hubby. I'm still trying to kick the night bingeing problem, I eat most of my calories right before bed. emoticon The last 2 nights I have been factoring a 1/2 box of smarties into my daily calorie intake and sucking on them one at a time until they are gone. Took me an hour to eat them all last night...so far so good! I hope this is even a little helpful for you. remeber though, you are NOT alone.emoticon

If you fail, it's because you took a chance.
If you succeed, it's because you grasped an opportunity!

I just found this team and am so glad. This is the reason for not liking myself. This is the reason I don't believe my husband when he says I am beautiful. I binge. But only when I am alone and no one can see me. I was doing so well joined sparks,Jan.1 following the plan, managing the exercising, but last night just started and kept on going. There are times I will go into the bathroom to eat a cookie so no one will see me. Or pretend I have to get something upstairs. I hide the wrappers in tin foil before throwing them out sometimes. Please tell me I am not alone.
I am a new team member.
