Hi, my name is Erin and this is the first step on my journey towards conquering my binge eating. I absolutely love sweets, especially chocolate! and find myself polishing off bags of M & Ms all the way to strawberry Twizzlers, depending on my mood. I don't know why I do it, but I know I always feel tremendously guilty afterwards and I really want to find out why and learn to, at the very least, control it. I am thankful to have found the courage to search the message boards for this issue, especially since I have been a member since 2008. I find I can control my weight for short periods of time and then lose control, spiraling into my yo-yo pattern of eating and dieting.
I really do want to change this and thank you all for sharing your successes and struggles with people like myself who are just starting on this path of discovery towards healing. I know it can't be easy to share, as it has taken me this long to ever even post anything. But, if I'm being truthful here, I need to make some significant changes and look forward to contributing on this board. Thanks for reading my post!
