Binge eating

Recommended Posts

I have a tendency to binge eat. When it comes to Girl Scout cookies, I end up eating the whole box, and have supported the Girl Scouts by buying multiple cases of them every year. I also tend to eat so much delivery food that I get sick. Usually I am able to keep it down, but spend the night miserable. Before and after this, I starve myself so that I can binge. I have been maintaining myself at 200 pounds, but I really want to get to 160-165 pounds, which is at the upper limit for BMI for healthy weight for my height. I have no desire to be skinny. Other than the period when I was so depressed that I didn’t eat, my weight seems to be fixed at 180-200 pounds since going on antidepressants in 2007. How do break the cycle of binging? Will that eliminate the “beer belly” I have  (I actually don’t drink beer)?

binge eating is something ive struggled with, especially when quitting booze and other inebriating activities.  its difficult.  after i was outta work and gym for a major injury i got depressed and was over 300#  i lost 100 and have kept it off a few years.  for me portion sizes and learning the triggers helped.  then id take a walk or something instead.  grae, granola and other healthier filling things helped.  its ajourney for me not a destination and i still stop for watermelon and peach sourpatch kidds to much.  i had to keep in mind i didnt gain the weight and bad ahbbits overnight and wasnt gonna lose them overnight.

I hate the fact I do this.
