Diane: That one pound loss is a huge victory (pun intended) and you should be proud! I'm proud of you! Inspiring!
It sounds like you're really stressed out. Do you know why? It might help to identify what you're feeling. That way you've addressed it instead of using food to avoid those painful feelings. And it might be so deep rooted that at first you won't be able to identify them. But please keep trying, keep analyzing your behavior, keep fighting.

As I sat in bed last night reading a few chapters in another ED book, one of the lines really stuck out and made me think about how such a simple statement has such a tremendous meaning.
â€œYou have to work at recovery.â€
Yeah. And thatâ€™s an understatement. You have to find the strength to work really hard at recovery. You have to engulf yourself in recovery. You have to think and act and feel recovery-- every day, all day. You have to learn about it, and talk about it, and identify it. You have to allow yourself to fail and then you have to get right back at it and try a different approach. Again and again and again.
Recovery isnâ€™t something that happens to us. It is something that we need to make happen. And it isnâ€™t going to come easy to us. And that is very discouraging. But in order to succeed in recovery, we must work at it continuously.
Sorry to just blurt this out... but I was raped 10 years ago tomorrow. My eating this week has been extra crazy.
Sorry to just blurt this out... but I was raped 10 years ago tomorrow. My eating this week has been extra crazy. I've booked my day pretty solid tomorrow and Saturday so I hopefully won't have time to curl up with a bag of chips or 12. I went back on anti-depressants about 6 weeks ago, in the hopes that it would help get my moods, and therefore my binging, under control. Worked for the first 3 weeks but I've been 'down' for the last 3. The first down week, I attributed to hormonal changes the week before my period. The last 2 weeks I figured was due to the impending 'anniversary'. Next week, I'm headed into PMS land again. I have no idea when my hormones should be balanced out again, no idea how long to give this before I go back to my dr. *sigh*
