    Going Binge Free For 2018?

    I know for myself I can have all these great plans of no more binges and eating 100% clean, but when I get stressed/depressed/lonely etc. it's almost like I have to binge. The binge brings release from those painful emotions. I get to a point where all I can think about is wanting to binge...

    Bad case of the blues washing over me

    Maybe it's the gloomy skies, I don't know, but my mood is steadily dropping and all I feel like eating is ice cream. Already went through 1.5 litres of ice cream in 2 days. Gross. Not interested in doing anything this evening. Just want to go to bed.

    ice cream

    I had therapy today. Getting there was harder than usual. Kept switching the whole way there. Had such a terrible headache. I hardly remember the session. Its all fuzzy. Getting home wasn't much better. I must have switched because I ended up somewhere else. I really hate this. I do understand...

    Ice Cream

    I've eaten about a litre of ice cream today, and I'm afraid I might be swinging up up up! I've had insomnia all week and last night I listened to soothing music all night long and got snatches of sleep here and there. Really feel like I could just stay up all night long, even though I walked...

    Ugggggh! I am so disgusting. I just ate a whole litre of ice cream, but I think I threw it all up, because I started to taste the cucumbers I ate before ate the ice cream.
