How to stop a binge? - July 31st 2010, 05:04 AM

I'm so sick of this, I plan on going to a therapist for bulimia soon. I can't take this b/p lifestyle. I just want to go on and not worry about my teeth falling out and the weight gain.

I know purging does nothing to lose weight. I know that it's just harming me, but it really makes me feel better physically. I binge and binge and binge until my stomach feels like it'll pop and then I try to purge, and sometimes I can't purge it all up.

I binge at night or early in the morning...and then the next day I'll try to eat normally to combat a new binge. But it doesn't help. I still binge and I lose all self control. It's so easy to over eat and I don't even have any shame anymore....

I want just one day to reset it all. One day where I just don't eat anything and gain control again. I just want to know it's okay to do this, I just want to know that it won't kill my metabolism or something because I know if I let myself eat normally again another day without trying to get some self control and time to let myself think, I'll just keep binging. I want to know that I can control myself again. I don't want to have to think about food anymore...I just want one day where I don't have to think about food.

I always have to have a day off every now and then because my throat just hurts like holy fuck after a few weeks.

I don't know how to stop a binge. I just...like I said, I'd have to give myself a break. Emotionally and physically its just way too tiring and it gets to a point where everything hurts too much I cant even binge. It never lasts long though.

I think that by not eating anything for a day you're just asking to binge majorly that evening or the next day. The only way I've found to stop binging is to eat good sized meals reguarly throughout the day. Though I've yet to find a way of stopping a binge half way through or once I've bought the food, except occasionally in a fit of control throwing the food away.

Religion is like a penis.
It's fine to have one.
It's fine to be proud of it.
But please don't whip it out in public and start waving it around.
And PLEASE don't try and shove it down my throat.

I always have a ton of gum on me. Whenever i feel like Im starting to eat too much I pop in a piece of something long lasting... and that really helps me stop from eating more most of the time.
