I dont really know what to say, except that I am also in therapy for binge eating (although I dont purge) It is such a hard thing to overcome, it is a constant battle for me, every day, every meal...I cant really suggest anything other than to remove tempting foods (hard if like me you will binge on anything, even coming up with bizaar food combinations) have alternative activities to eating (can be hard when you just want to EAT!) like knitting, crosswords, scrapbooking? Drink lots of water, If find when I am properly hydrated the PHYSICAL urge to eat subsides somewhat (the emotional urge is another thing!)
Its hard to love yourself after a binge, I usually get into a really negative cycle, eat the food until my stomach hurts, I feel sick and I have a headache and feel dizzy, and then stop and cry and feel like such a loser, like I have no self control, that I am fat and ugly etc.... What I have learned so far in my therapy is that those negative feelings are already there, before I binge...yes they come out afterwards, but they are still lurking....you need to get rid of the negative self talk, (sooo hard!
) and try to tell yourself everyday that you ARE beautiful, you ARE strong, intelligent, lovable, and most of all WORTHY of weight loss, and of a fantastic life, happy and healthy.
I have gone as far as to write these things on a poster thats stuck to my wall, so that even if I feel that I am not worthy of these things, it is sreaming at me with capital letters whenever I walk past.
SO, lol all I can say is today is another day babe, thats the way I look at it....you cant change yesterday, but today can be the first day of the rest of your life
