That is so encouraging! Thanks for your post!! I just had a very similar experience - - my first EEE last night and yet it was very minor compared to my old binges, and I was able to halt it before it went any further. Today I was a bit disappointed but no serious self-loathing / vicious attacks on my character / knee-jerk self sabotage or guilt- induced eating. It was a very emotional day for me (the anniversary of my brother gettin killed in a plane crash) but I am so grateful for the progress that I am seeing. It is helping me to deal with the real feelings that i am having. I can experience my grief and sadness and acknowlege it now. It is so much less exhausting than constantly chasing down all the phantom feelings that uses to swirl about madly. I can't say enought good things about SY and this support site!
Life is a gift! Tear into it!!!

Hi everyone, I am on my final week of the shrink yourself course. I have had the book for about 9 months. After years of up and down and everything in between I have found this to the most helpful program of all I have tried or been committed to(OA,WW,Several diet plans,therapy etc.) So far I have lost 14 pounds. The best thing I have noticed is even when I have an EEE(emotional Eating Episode)bouncing back quickly has been so much easier,faster and less painful. I am not sure if I will stay on the boards there but I am glad to find this board here so I can keep in communication with others doing this amazing program
