Health & Support binge help Apr 25 2012

You are stronger than that.

Take each day, minute, and second for what it is. Ask yourself, "what will happen to me if I don't eat right now?" If you think about it, nothing. Nothing will happen if you don't binge.

It's ALL in your head. MIND OVER  BODY. You can do it because there are plenty of people who have.


Self Control! I know because I'm working on it every day. It's hard. Nothing is easy when it comes to weight loss. You can learn to control  yourself.

Health & Support When did you realize you had a problem/ How did it start? Jan 23 2009

I did the exact same thing, with the twinkies and chicken. I didn't think it was a big deal untill I got to a point where everything I ate 'wasn't good enough'. I would end up eating half of everything, even small chewy bars. And yes, I felt really happy to go to sleep hungry.  I was a little bit younger and never got treatment, well my 'treatment' was breaking up with my boyfriend and not caring anymore about food. I gained a lot of weight, now trying to loose it. I am also begining to go to sleep hungry some nights... happily. I know I'm not getting myself into an eating dissorder, just picking up bad habbits. I recently became a vegitarian and actually I gaged at my co-workers eating chicken for the first time. I'm still trying to figure that one out.

Vegetarian Vegan vs Vegetarian Jan 23 2009
04:48 (UTC)

I'm 18 and decided to become a vegitarian at the begining of December. I read a book.. Skinny Bitch, and it opened up my eyes to a lot of crazy things in this world. I only buy soy milk and don't buy eggs. My aunt and cousin are vegitarians, my cousin slowly becoming a vegan. I think veganism is in my future. I've only been a vegitarian for about two months so I don't want to jump to any conclusions, but it's something I beleive in.

For every animal you don't eat, I am going to eat three.

Lots of calories in most animals. I can't imagine that's a good way to lose weight.


=D frothbeast is funny

Vegetarian Why is it so hard to go vegetarian? Dec 14 2008
15:10 (UTC)

Just think about it this way:

" I can have meat if I wanted to, but I'm trying to be a vegetarian so I'm choosing not too."

That helps me some, I just started a couple days ago lol.

Also, try to go just two weeks. After you've made it two weeks, decide if you want to go any longer=) hope it helps!

Weight Loss food "sneaker".... Dec 13 2008
04:51 (UTC)

I've definitley had a problem with sneaking food. When I first got my driver's license I did it all the time, on the way home from shool, home from work, etc. Then I would park next to the outside trashcans so I could easily get rid of it and not have anyone know! I don't do it now, considering I live by myself. But I know how it feels. Honestly it sucks having to hide food! I mean we should be able to eat whatever we want without anyone else judging!

Now that I think about it, every time I visit my parents house I ALWAYS sneak food. At night and when my dad is outside working. And I hate it because if he came in and saw me with ice cream he would definitely say something rude. AHH this makes me sick. He does this to my mom and it drives me crazy!

Hey thanks! Now I feel a little better, knowing that I'm not the only one that has been, well in my case is, in this situation.
