I have no idea why....It started with the fact that I didn't eat dinner because I binged all day and then went out of the house to meet for coffee. When I got home I wasn't hungry but wanted to eat something small....It started with half pnut butter sandwich and then cookies and then all hell broke loose.
I dont know a lot about this disorder yet.
Can someone help me...point me in right direction...give me pointers.
Thanks

Hi Carol. I'm sorry you are having such a hard time. Maybe it's something physical. You may want to talk to your Doctor. He may be able to give you something to help a little. Our minds can trick us up. Perhaps your stress is a sign of depression? That was one of my signs That anxious feeling. I've been on medicine now for a long time and am doing much better.

I'm not diagnosing you...just making a suggestion?

Feeling stressed out. Didn't go into the kitchen to eat, only to turn off the light. Saw the peanut butter out of place on the counter and almost blew my whole day of abstinence. I had to make myself busy, and pray. I don't understand why I am having such a difficult time lately. It has been 3 years for me in this weight lose journey and I am hopeful that I will be at my goal weight this year.

Feeling stressed out and not even knowing why is a real challenge. Last Monday night I was anxious all inside... just couldn't settle down. I hate that feeling. I could feel my heart pounding in my chest...No reason for this at all. Didn't sleep hardly at all that night either.

I love chocolate as well. I do have a glass of chocolate skim milk at night when I feel hungry. That fills me up and gives me my chocolate fix too. I limit it to 1 cup.

On Sunday nights I allow myself to have a 1 cup serving of ice cream as my weekly treat. It makes it special that way. Yep, I allow for the choc syrup and peanuts too. Then that's it until the next Sunday night. I don't usually eat high fat treats during the week. I've been maintaining my weight so it seems to be working.

It's good that you recognize why you are doing it. Maybe start writing your feelings down when you want to binge? What are you feeling at that moment? Is there a pattern somewhere?

I binged last night on cashews. Ate several handfuls after eating healthy all day. I feel like I did it to comfort myself. I've been doing it for awhile and I need to accept how hard nighttime is for me. Most of my binging is done then, because I feel anxious and afraid. Of what, I'm not sure of. I'll have to think about it.

Jae

I'm focused on success!

You're not alone. I have done it too. Sometimes I do it for no reason..it's there. It doesn't happen as much as it used too now. I think it's ok once in a while..as long as we are aware of what we are doing and count it.

You sound like me in alot of ways -- the food is just there! It's like it calls our names or something -- and I know I can swallow before I even realize that I put something in my mouth! Habit!! And one to catch ourselves doing so we can ask ourselves if we're really hungry or not.

I wish this thread got a little more attention! It is a great idea to track why we do what we do.

Yesterday afternoon I fixed a snack for the fiancee and ended up eating too many little pieces of cheese.

Then last night I had some raspberry sorbet when I wasn't even really hungry, just kind of restless, and put some dark chocolate on top of it. It could have been worse, it wasn't even half a cup, but why eat it when I'm not hungry?

I didn't binge but I was out for dinner and had a piece of pie for desert when I didn't need it. It came with the meal so I ate it!!!! Another day tomorrow.

If you did snack or binge, let us know why by one of these choices:

(1) Stress Eating
(2) Boredom Eating
(3) Hungry
(4) Habit
(5) Other

You don't need to explain if you don't want to -- that's up to you -- but, again, track the "whys" we do what we do and, then once we determine that "why", we can attack it and try to kick the snacking habit once and for all!

AND, if you DIDN'T SNACK/BINGE -- Post that also!! We're here to help and here to help each other!
