Our 21-day streak has been going for over seven years. Not all the posters there get emails about new members. Please stop by. Lots of good stuff there and blogs from years past.

hey welcome! congrats on your weight loss and i know what you mean about being terrified of undoing all your hard work. i lost 60 lbs but still occasionally binge. i am trying to learn how to pay attention to my feelings of hunger and satiety. you can always reach out here for support. it's a coping mechanism i also need to incorporate into my life, visiting spark when i feel a binge coming on!

Hi thank you for sharing.

I am recovering from Binge Eating Disorder and was in treatment for it for six months. I wrote blogs about that treatment, and because of the questions and interest I got from other sparkmembers I started a team in which I shared the information and the methods used. Since then I have also posted that information on my blogs. Feel free to check them out (start reading the oldest blogs first) .
If you have questions or if you'd like me to 'think with you' just post on my sparkpage!

Welcome. Congratulations on having at least temporarily stuck to a consistent behavior change with food, something many people never sustain whether they lose weight or not. As you're finding out, it is only the very beginning stage of a new lifestyle, one that you haven't actually worked out and adjusted to yet. Guess what. You're normal! But it is very important to start believing that there have to be many more reasons to eat smartly in life than just to lose weight, especially just for appearance. That motivation has very little success in the long run. I have a lot more to say, but I'll send it to you separately. Just know that our first priority on this team is not bingeing. Having a good eating plan can definitely help but doesn't prevent bingeing on its own. Perfect eating, losing weight, being thin: all those are separate issues that we want to help members work on but not bingeing is first and we believe we can go off plan, do simple overeating, not lose weight, etc. but still be successful on any one day if we just don't binge. We learn to do whatever we need to to support not bingeing. We are less likely to have daily calorie limits or track since those can be triggering to bingers and since there are so many teams that support those tactics already, but that is your choice.



Welcome to the next stage of your new life with food! Have faith that you can actually learn to like living eating modestly. Then keep going. emoticon

Hi! I'm new here, and I'm kind of at a loss. I deal with a food addiction, and was 350 pounds. But I decided enough was enough and went on a medically supervised liquid fast at my local hospital. I figured that's a perfect way to get a hold on my addiction and bingeing. I did that for 10 months with zero cheating and lost 162 pounds. And now I'm back on food and dealing (poorly) with my binge eating. It took me a month to binge after transitioning back onto solid food. I need to get a handle on this and start taking steps before I actually undo all of the hard work I've done. I just feel really hopeless right now. I've set up a new incentive system for me to get through the day without bingeing and reward myself with small things when I have done that for a number of days in a row. Maybe that will help me a little - to have a concrete thing I am working for. Because this needs to change and I can't pretend that I'm fine with this.
