MY BINGE EATING DISORDER JOURNEY

Since I became fat 10 years ago, I have tried repeatedly to lose weight. These things have taken their toll. Yo-yo dieting, binge eating, joining every weight loss organization out there and taking dangerous weight loss medications, you name it, I've done it. All of these weight loss attempts have destroyed my body and made me ill. No more restrictive diets for me, no more miracle cures and above all, I NO LONGER WANT MY LIFE TO BE CONTROLLED BY FOOD!!!.

Since I became fat 10 years ago, I have tried repeatedly to lose weight. These things have taken their toll. Yo-yo dieting, binge eating, joining every weight loss organization out there and taking dangerous weight loss medications, you name it, I've done it. All of these weight loss attempts have destroyed my body and made me ill. No more restrictive diets for me, no more miracle cures and above all, I NO LONGER WANT MY LIFE TO BE CONTROLLED BY FOOD!!!. I realized far too late that my obesity was a symptom and the real disease was in my mind. This time, while I deal with my eating disorder and my health in a mindful way, I am concentrating on the the cause of my obesity. It is a long journey. So far, I have lost 60 lbs by dealing with the issues driving me to eat and NOT even trying to diet! I don't have a specific goal anymore because I now know that THE JOURNEY IS THE GOAL. I am seeking to connect with others on a similar journey.

Miss you too! I'm so sorry. Things have fallen apart and I'm trying to put them back together.

Hi again, the link you shared to the binge eating website had a link to "Eating Disorders Anonymous" and there is one near me, so I'm going to call them and see if still up an running. The site has great stuff. Thanks for sharing.

For all you do as a teacher! We are actually working on his self-regulation skills and I love the idea of daily mindfulness meditation and have read a lot about it! We are also seeing a psychologist for CBT. Thanks so much for your support

Thanks for reading and commenting on my blog! It is so great to have such great support! As a teacher, it's really helpful to read your perspective of it and how you have seen it increase so much. It must be so hard for you to see - THANKS so much
