Welcome to the team! I would second what SUNNYRUTH said. Making small changes has been more helpful to me than trying to overhaul my eating. Good luck to you!

Lexie, welcome! I was going to post a comment on your profile page, but I think you don't have one yet. No worries.

Two underpinnings of not bingeing and long term eating habit change: don't follow some prescribed diet and don't swear off any food forever. Learn what combination of light and dense foods really pleases the total you. You find out the ratio as you go. How you eat in a year is more important than following some strict plan now. It's okay to choose to resist the urges rather than wait for them to go away.

Welcome to the team!

There is nothing to hold you back except you.

You can press forward long after you canít. Itís a matter of wanting it bad enough.

The bad news is: we are our own worst enemies. The good news is: we are our own greatest champions.

You're in the right place. Many of us struggle with binge eating.

What's been working for me lately is: 1) in the morning I give myself some small goals (enough water, fruits and veggies, or 15 minutes of exercise; 2) in the evening, I think of 2 things I've done successfully in the day (once again, these can be small, like limiting sweets, or just getting enough sleep the night before).

I know I've spent a lot of time beating myself up and I'm finally learning that I'm more successful in my healthy habits if I'm kind to myself.

Congrats for posting here, and come back and visit often! You can do it!

One day at a time.

Hi and welcome to the team! emoticon emoticon
I am so sorry you are struggling !
Saying no to binge eating is hard,but it can be done!
Don't be too hard on yourself and just concentrate on going from meal to meal.
The urges will come to pass.

Hi to all team members,
I am having a tough time with my eating binges lately. It seems worse. I need some type of intervention, so I thought I would try this out.

Also, I am new to the team. I almost forgot to post that. I hope I posted this correctly.
