Food Addiction - September 23rd 2009, 02:22 AM

I know it's somewhat ridiculous. But it's getting worse every day. I grew up with a mom who was weight-obsessed, yet she grew up with a heavy italian family so she ate a lot. My parents owned a resturant, they know how to cook, I know how to cook. So this is all I do. I eat even though I hate myself for doing it. When I get bored, upset, or pissed off I eat.

I hate my body. I feel like a failure because I know that I'm fat. And my boyfriend is such a sweetheart and he tells me he loves the way that I look. But I know he's lying. No one could love this.

Wow you just completely described how I feel
I'm "addicted to food" too. I'm sorry to hear you're struggling
If you feel you may have an eating disorder, you should try posting in that thread, they are relly helpful over there. I'm here if you need a buddy!
