I faithfully ate 5 times a day, very good quality meals, for 7 years, but it didn't stop me from bingeing and eating compulsively. Thirty-three months ago I committed to three meals a day on weekdays (no sweets) and free eating on weekends. Eating fewer times a day and sweets on fewer days per week has been a Godsend. I enjoy my meals immensely and find I feel I miss out if I DO eat anything in between, besides nice cups of mocha or tea or a drink, because I enjoy my meals less when I eat more often. This has been carrying over more and more to weekends.

These changes don't typically take hold and stay in just a few weeks or even months. Our actions usually lag behind our intellect. Keep going! Consider weaning yourself off more than about 30-45 minutes of exercise a day, unless you genuinely love being athletic. Unathletic people who exercise hard for 60 minutes often move less energetically the rest of the day and end up counteracting the intent of the exercise.

It doesn't take all day to plan a few good meals and work in some moderate exercise, split up or not. Then live the rest of your life, the life someone might have led before she got caught up in all this focus on the perfect body. It is a late twentieth century phenomenon and has brought mostly misery. Find an obession that feeds your heart, not drains it. I'm working on it, and I affirm it for you.

I started small. I at breakfast, even if it was just toast or a piece of fruit. I did this for a month. Then I added one snack on top of breakfast. I did this for three months. THen I added my second snack. This took a while to maintain. I think six months. If you are trying to do everything all at once, you set your self up to fail. It takes time to get everything as a routine. Remember it took you a long time to get the habits you have now.

I definitely have a problem with food and I obsess about how much I DON'T exercise. I'm sorry I can't help you with not wanting to eat or forcing yourself to consume calories...I've never had that problem. We'll figure it out though, as every body is different. We have to find what works or doesn't work for our unique body. My body is so faithful, as I have tried to ruin it a million times, yet it still responds to healthy choices when I make them. I choose to eat 5 small meals today....one day at a time. You can do this. emoticon

You don't HAVE to do 5 small meals.... if it's not working maybe you should try three slightly larger meals and a late afternoon snack/small meal?

Since you don't say how long you exercise, I can't say you are obsessed with exercise. You are possibly obsessed with getting the exercise to burn off the calories but looking at you weight loss chart, you are doing fine. You need calories or you won't lose weight, it is a conundrum. You don't have to eat a lot of food, but it is important to eat. Good luck.

MMmm not sure but does sound like your obessed with exercise.. and you have to have a balance.. ! you shouldnt exercise too much.. and eat less.. your body needs food to burn.. so try to eat something for breakfast.. It is so important.. even if you dont like to eat. your body needs it to stay healthy..

loving myself as i am beautiful inside and out!!! Think positive .. you can do it!!!..... i do care.��Life is not easy for any of us, but what of that? We must have perseverance and, above all, confidence in ourselves.� � Don't give up we all can do this!!

OVER THE PAST TWO MONTHS I HAVE BEEN TRYING MY BEST TO GET 5 SMALL MEALS DONE MY THROAT BUT SOMEHOW THE TASK IS HARD,MAINLY BECAUSE I AM NOT AN EATING PERSON.

NOW I AM TRYING MY UTMOST BEST WITH THE 3 MAIN MEALS AND 2 SNACKS AND FOR ME ITS LIKE TOO MUCH EVEN IF I DO PORTION CONTROL,BUT I NEED TO GET THOSE CALORIES IN NOW ALL THAT I THINK OF IS EXERCISING, NO MATTER HOW MUCH I DO IT'S LIKE IT IS NEVER ENOUGH SO TELL ME DO I HAVE A PROBLEM WITH FOOD AND AM I OBSESSED WITH EXERCISING
