I hate to admit that Im not a very good cook and I had to feed the kids dinner while Hubby was at school after a long day of work too. I drove all the kids to mcdonalds and they had 1 cheeseburger and fries each. I ordered a salad because I was craving a salad and I was stuffed after it was eaten. After everyone retreated into their rooms, I had a cheeseburger and tons to drink and I swear I had no room left before the cheeseburger. Its quite sad that I blindly do that. emoticon

Hang in there and don't be so hard on yourself! I too feed my negative feelings and end up binging! I hate it! But tomorrow is a new day!!

I can relate... My dear wife is on a different meal plan while I need to stay strict on Low Carb. Her things are in one cupboard. I really wish there was a lock on it. I get cravings & nibble... a little on this, a little on that... & I'm off my plan. This is often the trigger & I end up buying a replacement box of what ever to cover up my binge.

Last night: an entire box of wheat thins.

The night before: an entire box of Triscuits.

Gee, do ya think I shouldn't be buying this stuff? It starts out rather small and continues to build and get worse and worse.

I am so angry with myself right now. And I know you very honest and brave people know EXACTLY how I'm feeling at this moment; disgusted and SICK.

Ya wouldn't mind it, but I really tried to distract myself from giving in to the cumpulsion. Last year at this time i looked into a residential program to just get myself away from home to forcibly break the pattern. When I discovered how expensive it was, I decided to ask my husband to put a piece of tape across the top of the stairway, and I barricaded myself into the upstairs portion of the house. It worked. I didn't binge for nearly 3 months and lost 15 pounds just by eating what I usually eat during the day....a very healthy meal plan. Crazy as it sounds, folks, I'm gonna do it again.

After working the night shift I started out this morning having one serving of grits with Slenda. That was a positive thing, but then I started feeling very negative about myself (not related to the grits). Once I got into that negative feeling moment I "comforted" myself by making a 1500 calorie pizza (of course planning on eating it all) and while waiting for it to cook I ate 9 mini peanut butter cups (550 calories). I'd have eaten more but that was all I had. Of course I knew the binge wasn't really comfort and was really feeding my negative feelings. Today was going to be a good day with wonderful weather in Chicago but I ruined the day by the negativity. I can only hope for a good day tomorrow.

Last night I binged on bread, a loaf of french bread I had bought from the store. I invited friends to dinner, made healthy food and added garlic and parmesan to this bread. The three of them had like one slice each, and I just kept going and going. I actually thought I might cry, because I felt as though I literally could not stop. Those moments are the moments that I realize, as someone with severe OCD, that it really is an absolute compulsive and that getting out of the habit isn't going to be easy. Moments like those make me lose hope for a moment--oftentimes driving to binge more--but I think being in this group will really help... making me admit my binges to myself and look back at what happened and why and definitely help in the future. Thanks for listening.

As a kid, my mom used to spread mixed sugar and butter on toast. We snacked on this when it was cold outside. I'm glad to have broken myself out of the habit, though I can't control what other people buy so it ultimately comes down to being strong and controlling myself when around sweets and chips. Yesterday I caught myself starting to snack on Doritos and thought of the team, so I went on SP instead. It's so hard to stop when you're emotional. But I'm glad I didn't binge yesterday! Day 1 binge-free.

Just about anything! When I was a little kid, I used to binge on sugar and butter mixed together because that was the only thing I could find in the house (I could keep things secret that way, too!). When I got older, I moved to cinnamon toast and then going to the canned food outlet for as much cheap chocolate or chips as I could afford. I also went through a phase of going through fast food drive thrus several times a day.

Oh my! I do have a checkered past!

I'm much better about only keeping good things in the house now, but will slip when there's tempting food in the house.

I applaud every single one of you for being so honest and open. That is why I love this team: we all relate to one another.

I am on day 20 of being binge free. What has helped me is to remind myself how bad it feels when I do it: emotionally and physically. Of course this team is a HUGE help as well, so supportive.

I am an emotional eater. I am learning to accept my emotions, and try to deal with them. If I am lonely reach out on SparkPeople or Facebook or send an e-mail. If I am bored find something to do that I enjoy. If I am sad or angry listen to good fun music, write it in a blog. It hasn't been easy that is for sure.

What I have binged on is usually cookies, frozen yogurt, cakes, flavored rice cakes, bowl of fruit with yogurt, chocolate, candy.

Last week, I binged on an entire package of Oreo cookies. This is 51 cookies in one sitting. I was sitting in front of the TV and didn't know I ate it all until it was all gone. I was aware that I finished one column, then two, but didn't have the strength to stop.
Last night, I ate an entire DiGiorno pizza for dinner. And what makes this worse is that I didn't eat any veggies yesterday nor drank water. Well, maybe 8oz, but either way this isn't a good start to the year.
I binge when there are snacks like this in the kitchen. I tell my boyfriend to not buy pizza, chips, cookies (he bought both pizza and cookies) because I am a HUGE weakling. I am accountable but once I start, I can't stop. I binge when bored or because it became a habit to snack while watching TV. Fruit isn't satisfying (not sweet enough like chocolate) and salad runs out quickly. So I crave the bad things. This is why I try so hard to not have them here in the first place.

2 boxes of pasta-roni, which wasn't even that good. bland, mushy. and then chocolate cake (the soda can method), which I should never had made - really wasnt that good either.

do you ever binge because nothing is satisfying? nothing is what you really want? eat everything else but...?

The fact is, that to do any thing in this world worth doing, we must not stand back shivering and thinking of the cold and danger, but jump in, and scramble as well as we can.

I can binge on almost anything. 2 large choc chip or choc fudge cookie icecream sandwiches, my latest. Anything I buy that does not make it home (eatten in the car). Anything where I hide the wrappers after. Chips, bread, crackers, market bakery muffins, mini-fruit pies... The 5 packs boxes of Atkins bars. (Should last 5 days... they are enough to trigger carb cravings for me... and they are gone in 2.) "Bet you can't eat just one!" Well, NO, I can't on any of the foregoing... which means I should not eat that first one.

I think that if it's eating many calories all day, it's overeating and not binging. Unless if you are a serial binger, but doubt that's the case. This is all rewiring our brains to eat smaller portions. It's really tough (which is why we are all member of this team and are here) but it's introducing a lifelong habit to eat smaller portions. Not only that, trick our minds into thinking that healthy=delicious. This is a constant battle against food. Instead of enjoying our food, we find ourselves feeling guilty for eating. That shouldn't be the case.
Just when I thought that I took out all the bad snacks in the house (chocolate, baked goods, etc), I found myself binging on tostitos tortilla chips yesterday. It's as if I wasn't myself and was an empty drone, staring at the wall thinking of nothing and stuffing my mouth with tortilla chips. I even caught myself doing it when getting full but I was at the point where I can't stop. Someone (fortunately) called me which forced me to stop. Yeah, this definitely happens when you are alone.

I keep on reading that a BINGE is when it is in a short period of time...what is it it when it is ALL DAY? Obviously, there were moments when I didn't eat for two hours, but still..I was thinking about when I was going to eat next.
So here it is, everything I ate today on my massive binge that I had been planning since last night:
LARGE bowl of chocolaty cereal
large coffee with milk
juice
two small pieces of bread, one with jelly, one with nutella
toast with nutella

30 min later:
LARGE cookie...literally called a SUPER COOKIE!

3 hours later:
Enormous serving of couscous and green beans with a slice of ham
Plain yogurt with brown sugar

Then snacked on a packet of gummy bears and similar candies
slice of toast with nutella
10 pain au lait (not sure if you know what those are)
plain yogurt with sugar
large bowl of chocolaty cereal

I am literally about to explode. How could I do this to my body? The thing I don't understand is that I FEEL like crap...but I can't stop putting food in my mouth.
It's a little scary seeing it all written like that....that is a LOT of food, a LOT of sugar, a LOT of chocolate. UGGGH!

As I read all of these posts I kept being amazed that I could relate to everybody. Its so hard to admit this problem and here you all are putting it out there. Sometimes I feel like I am the only one who eats like this. I joined spark people mid summer and I haven't lost a pound. I started working out and tracking again this week and I am hoping to stick with it. Thank you all for sharing.

You are doing better than you think. You have eliminated junk food and bread. We have both, including lots of ice cream in the house. About 6 years ago my house became very sick and landed in a nursing home for 2 years. He is home now, unable to drive, greatly reduced vision, and reduced hearing. He has no interest in going to anything but a chain restaurant like Denny's or TGIF, even for our anniversary or my birthday.

To let him have something he can have control over, I let him have bread and sweets in the house. Unfortunately, I have a serious and uncontrollable weakness for ice cream. I am sure I'd be at least 40 pounds lighter right now if we didn't keep the ice cream and bread in the house.

I just joined this team a few minutes ago after I finished a binge. I've had about 1000 calories from 530am to 9am. I wake up that early so I can run before it gets too hot out and then be able to do all my morning errands before it gets crowded. Well, I didn't run which messed up my entire schedule. I was upset that I didn't run, so I ate my breakfast WAY earlier then I was supposed to and then it snowballed from there- coffee, watermelon, oatmeal, more watermelon, FOUR jenny craig desserts, and Trop50 OJ. We don't keep any junk food or bread in our house bc I'll binge on it, but in the end, it doesn't matter if it's healthy or not. Normally, if I have an early a.m. binge, I automatically give myself the 'ok' to binge the rest of the day bc I've already ruined a healthy day. I'm posting this in an attempt to start 'fresh' right now and try to eat 'normal' (ha, I have no idea what that even means). This is quite a challenge to even type this.

Emotional eating yesterday evening. I had planned to have salmon with spinach and carrots for dinner but driving home from the theatre I felt lonley and depressed and stopped at the grocery store and bought loin of pork and icecream... went home and had that pork with mushrooms and cheese and the icecream for dessert. Only one serving yes, but a big one and no vegetables. The icecream was "Macadamia Nut brittle" and it I am going to eat icecream I am happy that I chose a high qualite and very delicious one.

The good thing was that I did not go on eating afterwards. I also had an hour of biking during the day so my "wrong" was that my meal was unbalanced and too big.

Good thread - I will join as well.

Yesterday I bought chick-pea cookies - there is a store with "foods from all the world" and I went threre to get viatnamese fish sauce and had the self-decieving plan too buy these cookies for my sister as an ok snck and had to taste them first... did not eat them all, but far too many.

For dinner I had a grilled chicken, not that big but I have a very hard time to roast a chicken and then not eat it all... no vegetables to that meal...

I find it very hard to admit in detail how much I ate - I have started to be able to admit binges and on what "icropopcorn", "steak" " ice-cream") but when It comes to tell how much, I still think it is very embaraasing... so this was a good thread, especially after a day hen it was not THAT bad...

I just want to say that I think that this thread is a great idea. Accountability is so important.

I have not binged in awhile, but knowing this thread is here comforts me because you never know when you'll need it!

Thanks and have a wonderful day!

Interesting posts. I agree that it's liberating to be able to document what you binged on. It feels less secret and less guilty. It also helps to give a sense of control.

I haven't binged for about 2 weeks, so it's hard for me even to remember my last binge. I feel like I'm 2 different people, the secret binger and the "real me". I wonder what that's about??

I've done good for the past two days, but just binged for about 2 weeks. People I talk to who aren't going through it don't get it, so I don't talk about it much except with my very close friends.

Anyway, my last binge on Friday was an 8 pack of mini 100 Grand candy bars. And that was after my "normal" lunch. And I ate it where no one could see me. Ugh. I felt guilty. You all are the first I've told this to.

I binged on ice cream. I eat not just one helping of ice cream, but usually 3 or 4 helpings. If I could just get through a week without sweets, I think I could stay on the right path. My husband likes sweets, but does not over indulge. I know he should be entitled to have them, especially since he became mysteriously sick and no longer can drive, is very visually impaired, and has poor hearing.

With only 1 day into SP I don't have a binge to confess (since starting here!) to but this forum is great! The problem with an OE like me is even when I have switched to healthy eating (greens, fresh fruits/veggies) I have had a sense of panic when I felt the food in my belly...it's as though abstinence means avoidance. I still haven't gotten my head around the thought that a feeling of satisfaction after a normal, healthy meal does not mean I have binged, only that I have treated my body properly. Does that day ever come? I certainly hope so.

Someone from another thread posted this: "[Binge eating is when] it comes from being so out of control that you're eating even when it's painful or uncomfortable, you know you should stop, but you can't." It's not a matter of the caloric intake that you're eating, it's disordered eating within a very short period of time combined with a loss of control.

I'm not even sure how to reply to that. My point was that for the last month, I've been making healthy choices and not eating uncontrollably. A slip up like that of the one with the ice cream bars is usually a precursor to days or weeks of uncontrolled, emotional eating and that is what I'm struggling with today (and every day). I'll never be perfect and I'm not aiming for perfection. I am looking to be healthy and to feel good about myself and not ashamed about the choices I'm making. Your comment is not supportive nor is it appreciated.

The revelation that another Sparkie (KATEB40) thinks eating 3 Weight Watchers ice cream bars constitutes a binge amazes me. I see many people, without eating problems, who can't stop at 1 ice cream bar, but have to have another. They call that being human, but evidently what's normal eating to many people can count as binge eating to someone. Aiming for perfection might be aiming too high though.

I had binge every day in this week. I ate yesterday: cottage cheese, pasta with cheese, 3 oatcakes with butter, cereals with milk, small probiotic yogurt drink, one small fat free yogurt, 5 toffee candys. I dont know why it comes, from stress and boredom and loneliness. Today I dont feel like binging. Next time when I want to binge, I wait and plan.

I haven't had a binge in a while. I know mine are triggered by emotions and stress. This week has been rough at work. I am tired of being told I'm not good enough and I am starting to hate my job because of it.

Today resulted in 1/2 a bag of gummy bears and about 10 mini white chocolate chip cookies. I usually turn to sweets when upset. On the upside (down?), my binge made me sick to my stomach which ended up cutting it short and maybe i will think twice in the future.

DLFIUMARA - Nope, don't mind at all. It's great to have a thread where we can all share our frustrations and not feel alone.

DEBJAY - I understand what you're going through. A friend was told to stay off certain foods like artificial sweeteners, sugar, high-sodium foods, but it seemed like nothing helped. She likes to walk around in heels though, she says it helps with evening pain. Maybe this helps? She snacks alot on baby carrots and unsalted nuts.

I wanted to binge now but, like ZOE812, decided to come here and share my thoughts with you. Zoe, you're right, it helps to come here and vent before starting to binge. My brother just heated up Ramen noodles and I stopped myself before heating up the water. I thought of this SparkTeam and here I am, binge-free for tonight! Woo hoo!

You already completed step one and that is to admit that you have a binge eating problem. The second step, which is harder, is to release all the emotions bottled up inside and to stop ignoring the guilt after binging. You will continue to binge if you continue to hide the problem. That's why it was necessary for me to share my frustrations with everyone, because we are all going through the same problem. There is no judgment in this forum and, by reading the responses so far, I feel closer to everyone. Thanks guys. I felt better immediately after posting my faults, I feel a little stronger. Feel less ashamed after reading your responses. Keep 'em coming!

That must be one of the steps...being able to admit a binge. I have such a hard time telling anyone. The guilt is overwhelming. In time...I hope. emoticon Good for you!

I agree with one of the other posts, you are brave to put it in writing for all to see. I feel so ashamed after I binge I too can hardly admit it to myself sometimes. I see your post as a show of strength.. you might not feel that way after you binged but it takes a strong person to admit it to themselves and others publicly.

Hopefully you can take that strength the next time you want to binge and direct it towards something else that will be more satisfying to you.

In the 5 weeks I've been on SP I've binged two times, one of the times was this past Wednesday night. I wanted to throw in the towel tonight and graze but came on SP instead. So reading your post helped keep me away from the kitchen.

Thanks for your post!

Thank you and I know that is true that reason has very little to do with it. If next time I won't binge as bad maybe it won't be so bad.

I feel for you, DEBJAY2. My diabetes should be reason enough not to binge,but reason has very little to do with it. I hope you feel better!

I binged bad today. I have been doing good but I have been just dying for the little snack cakes dreamcycle bundt cakes. They are sooooo good and I have had a sweet tooth forever. Anyway, I ate 4 of those and they are 440 calories a piece. I also had a hamburger and 2 cokes today! I sincerlly hope that I will be able to go back on my diet good tomorrow! I am also hurting all over real bad tonight and that is one of the reasons I was trying to stop my sweets. I have fibromyalia and sweets make it so much worse! Maybe I will learn!

Do you mind if I highjack your thread? I think it's a great idea to publicly declare what you ate, since I binge late at night after my husband goes to bed. So normally it's only me and the food, but if I bring others into the picture maybe I'll slow down.

You are so brave! I can barely admit to myself what I eat, let alone post it on a message board. I hadn't binged for over a month until last night when I had 3 weight watchers ice cream bars. Grrrrr!

Hi Sparkers!

I am starting a thread where each time I binge, I will force myself to come here and share what I ate with you all. So because I binged, here it goes...

Saturday night:
6 chicken taquitos with guacamole, sour cream, cheese, lettuce, salsa
2 bacon-wrapped hot dogs
Mexican rice
1 huge slice apple pie

Sunday night:
5 carne asada tacos
1 carne asada burrito
1 bag Lays potato chips with lemon juice

Mon-Thur: good!

Last night:
4 sour cream & cheese burritos (flour tortillas)
2 chicken drumsticks
2 bowls chocolate cheerios
1 chocolate cookie

There you have it, how I went above 2,000 calories in ONE sitting. I hope that by sharing, I will limit myself because I know y'all will be watching. We will see how I will do tonight, and I hope to NOT come back to this thread. Best of luck to you guys! Be strong!
