This may sound like a silly question, but why do you want to stop binge eating? You need to have your reasons for quitting in front of you regularly. I have mine saved as the wallpaper on my phone. I have pictures on my fridge that remind me why I don't need to open the refrigerator door. I have an index card that I carry around with me that lists my goals. I have a file on my computer called "Remember" that has pictures of the body I want and the reasons I want it.
You have to remind yourself over and over why you want this. AND, once you stop bingeing and start seeing results, it's actually easier to stop. You'll still have relapses, of course, but you'll be on your way to recovery.
Today for example, I put on a pair of business pants I hadn't worn in a while. I can tell my hips are smaller! My weight has stayed the same, but I'm getting much more fit from all my running (more info on THAT little challenge here: 2012runningchallenge.blogspot.com/
That small victory helped me only eat three cookies (one serving) that were in the kitchen at work today. Normally I wouldn't be able to pass up an office binge. I mean, come on... it's FREE food, and I have my own office so no one knows I'm the one who took and ate all the cookies. But I keep thinking how good I look today. People have told me I look SKINNY today! (I had a baby in April 2011). And it makes it easier to resist.
You have to focus on the positive, the reasons why you want this, and be dedicated enough to see results. Once you get to that point, it gets easier I promise. I have been a binge eater since I was little. If I can tell you it gets easier, it gets easier.
This is your life. Are you who you want to be?
