Binge-monster...

Postby zeedeveelgirl » Wed Apr 16, 2008 10:14 pm

It got me... the binge-monster got me tonight :( I was doing so well, 5 days out of the 1 week goal not to binge that I'd set. Now I'm back at square 1.... *sigh* :cry:

Thanks so much Jewles and Helen :)

It is a hard thing to beat as well.. I binged again this morning (after I slogged my GUTS out for 45 minutes on the evil f**cking Versa climber at the gym - go figure?!?!) but it wasn't AS bad a binge as normal, so I guess that's something!? Well it's not really, but ya know..

I think, Helza, that we need to constantly change our trap-setting elves around! We don't want them getting too comfortable now, do we?!

As of 11:47am, Thursday 17th April 2008, NO MORE BINGEING!
One week binge free is my starting point. I can DO this.
I made an appointment at the Uni counselling services for next week, worth a shot eh?

Em xoxo

Excellent idea on going to the counselling hun ! Im sure you'll get some excellent tips and advice :)

As for the elves, we must be sure to do everything by the union otherwise, Im sure we'll end up in hot water :mrgreen:

That damn binge monster is having a ball with all of us! Em i feel for you hon, its so hard sometimes, but remember your trying to beat it, thats an achievement in itself because it would be so easy to just give up. Good on you for seeing a counsellor too. I hope you have a good day babe, go easy on yourself.

I think it would be a great idea to talk to someone about this.

Please realise that you aren't alone. The binge monster has affected us all - to varying degrees.

Do you think it would help to keep a food diary?

You will get through this. You are strong, brave and beautiful.

Love and best wishes,
Lauren.

Thanks again, guys :) You're all great!

Bit scared about seeing the counsellor, but I think it will be good for me for sure..

Thanks for the suggestion, Lauren :) But unfortunately, being so obsessive and religious with my food diary & calorie counting is what caused this binge monster to rear its ugly head :(

Arg stupid binge monster!! I reckon he's made himself comfortable around my place recently as well! :evil: At least you had 5 days free though, so there is a bright side!

Counselling sounds like a good idea. I went to one when I was at uni, and it wasn't all that bad :wink: And it's for free too so all the better!!

Hey Sarah!

It seems like the binge monster has been running riot lately!!! What is his problem!? (Of course it's a male :twisted: :twisted: ) Good luck for beating your binge monster over the head!!

My best friend and I are going to see counsellors at Uni at the same time on Wednesday (separate doctors though!), because she suffers from the same thing. So we're supporting each other. I am SO glad she's back in my life!!
Oh yeah, it's awesome that it's free! Love all the free Uni services! I wish I lived close to Uni so I could take advantage of more of them!!!!

Em xoxo

I am a serious binge eater... i dont know how to control it, I get really moody when i dont eat even if i dont feel hungry, and when i eat i dont even enjoy food anymore, its more like a race to get as much in me as possible, i used to be so health concious, but i am away from home travelling for a year, and food has become my controller. I eat when im bored, tired, upset, homesick any excuss i just eat...how can i stop this?

Wish I could help La20, I'm a big time binger as well. I eat til I'm in pain and fel sick. Want to know something disgusting? A week ago I stopped at the supermarket to get stuff for spag bol for dinner which I planned to cook as soon as I got home, and I bought a sausage roll and a pie for 'entree'. Then I ate the whole pan of spag bol. That was just 'dinner' The rest of the night I dont even want to think about.
At the moment I'm doing the 'Healthy Kickstart' from the Healthy Inspirations program (i have a thread in Weight Loss Talk) and that helps, because I *can* binge on this, just on certain types of food.
I live with 2 other girls and I hide my binging from them. Its disgusting. And i dont know what to do.
Life is too important to be taken seriously!
