Recovery... - December 13th 2013, 12:05 AM

This thread has been labeled as triggering, particularly on the subject of eating disorders, by the original poster or by a Moderator. The contents of this thread might therefore not be suitable for certain sensitive users. Please take this into consideration before continuing to read.

I want to recover, I need to recover. I can't even get on a scale anymore not because I'm too heavy for the traditional scale (thank god, nowhere even close to being that much overweight!) but because the numbers disgust me. It makes me want to cut open my stomach and tear out my intestines. A lot of things give me that feeling, especially those bloody fucking weight-loss/leaner abs stuff.

I can't stop eating though. I sometimes eat four or five meals a day. When I'm bored or stressed, I eat. My therapist said I'm a food hoarder and it's true. Sometimes, I eat so much that my stomach overflows and everything I ate moves in reverse.

I just need support. I'm told portion control and exercise works, but I can't do this by myself!

I think maybe seeing a nutritionist would help she can help you set up a eating plan on what to eat when to eat and how much to eat. Exercise is great too maybe just go for a walk around the block. If you ever need to talk you can always pm or vm me.

I just have to say this when I read that I was offended because I can't get on a scale because I am to heavy for our but it wasn't by choice my pills made me gain weight so please just be carefully of what you say.

I'm not sure how much help I'll be, but maybe think of the reasons you eat? I know that sounds silly, but if you're eating this much because you're hungry- you need to see a doctor and discuss it with them because it may be a physical problem. If this is a mental thing however, a mental need to eat- list why you think you eat. If you eat when you're bored, stressed or upset, find new ways of coping when you feel like this. If you know you eat when you're upset, and you can feel yourself getting upset- distract yourself, do something to take your mind off it. Run a bath, play a game, read a book. I don't know what you've tried, and I'm probably not being much help, but I just wanted to stop by and offer some suggestions.

I notice when I'm distracted or busy, I don't eat. So I know it isn't physical. It's hard to explain, but when I've nothing to do, or I'm stressing over schoolwork... instead of finding something to do or getting to my schoolwork, I heat up a full-sized meal... even if I ate just two hours earlier.
