Just the start
I have struggled with worrying about what to eat/counting calories/exercising etc for about a year now. Before that I never worried about it but then I moved into a sorority house and honestly it was everywhere, hard to not worry about it. I became lactose intolerant and so my stomach began having issues so it became easier to skip some food products ect. I had a couple binge episodes during the year then during the summer was the first time I binged and purged. I was in europe, the food was amazing and I honestly did it to just have more room for more! When I came back home, I lived alone worked a ton and food became an escape. All the food for a year I stopped eating because it made my stomach hurt or I was watching my weight, I ate now...tons and tons. Boxes of cookies, so many carbs, so many chips! I spent so much money. Ended up passing out so full or getting sick. I kept thinking I would stop, but now I can't. I crave it, I crave bad food! I have only been doing it for a couple months but I do not know how to stop! I haven't told people and I do not know where to go from here, and how to stop. I know I'm better then this but it's so hard.
I am so sorry to hear that you are struggling with this precious girl - but nomatter how lost you feel, I promise there is hope for you.
I would definitely suggest starting structured eating as soon as you can... This is planning 3 meals and 3 snacks into each day, so that your body knows food is coming soon. This can help to reduce the binge urges in time and get you back into the routine of normal eating. It's one of the 5 steps of my online recovery program
and one of the first I believe people in recovery must start practicing. It is so important to nourish that magnificent body of yours with enough food - and frequently!
One step at a time Kate - you can do this.
