First id like to say that I am 26, and for HALF of my life (yes for 13 years - since I was 13), I have had emotional eating problems!
That is pretty scary.
I think my brain's thinking pattern goes something like this... "You must do everything perfectly, if you do not do it perfectly, than you have failed and you might as well binge eat". So of course, I end up binge eating all the time!! I am very much a black and white person, everything is either very good, or its very bad - no in between.
I cannot seem to shake this way of thinking, at all.
I do love exercising, and it is probably thanks to exercising that I am not obese and just on the border of healthy weight and overweight according to the BMI.
Does anyone else experience this?
