    Always difficult traveling to a new city, in Memphis, TN. Can't say these were major BINGES just an item I want to learn better how to deal with on the road. @navadaden thank you for the book suggestion. Once I speed through some of the biographic aspects in the beggining I do believe like the author this is a voice some of us have power over. But in saying that I do get the psychological aspects of BED that do effect others much differently than me. By the way your doing great stay with it.

    I found myself back to my old ways of scouring the internet at 2 AM to find some diet that would work to cure me of something I can't fix with food restriction (ie. loneliness, depression, body hate, etc), and that unsurprisngly ended in a binge yesterday. Looks like I will need to put weight loss on hold for a while and focus again on self-care while I am unable to access counseling services. At this point, I just want to get my DBF streak back. I guess I thought that with enough time, I wouldn't have to keep working at my relationship with food (I somehow thought I was exempt from what I've been taught), but it's clear that this will be the lifelong battle I was always told it would be even after so many months without a binge. I am refocusing my efforts on improving my relationship with food from now on.

    Sending all the hugs. If you feel that this counseling is on the mental health side, there are online counselor type things?

    NEDA is the National Eating Disorder Association

    NAMI is the National Alliance on Mental Illness


    Those are both online and have resources to help you get access to services.

    Sending even more and more and more hugs...(HUGS)

    @brittdee88 It sounds like your on the right path to getting back. I've learned a lot about the BINGE lately from you guys. Thanks for all your sharing of the battle. @knitormiss I ran across NEDA this week. Any links/articles there that you have found valuable that you can share?

    @hillmike56 I don't have any specific references at hand, and I'm out of pocket the next couple weeks...but I'll check back once I'm near a computer again!

    @KnitOrMiss thank you so much for sharing! I am definitely going to look into those as a fill-in until I am back home.
    @Nevadaden @hillmike56 thank you both so much. This community has really helped me, even when I feel like hiding in a corner.
