Support buddy for binge eating

Postby goldenrose » Sat Apr 21, 2018 8:14 am

Hi all, new to the forum.

I've been struggling with a food addiction for the last two years but have only just come to terms with how little control I have over the situation. In my everyday real life I feel as though I cannot really tell anyone or connect with anyone about it yet as I am scared to let them know what's been going on and how I've felt for this long, I'm not sure how they will react.

I really want to kick the habit and am starting to try and wrap my head around why I have developed this disorder over time, but I've found it is difficult to process this alone. I'd love to have someone to confide in who's on the same journey, someone who also needs support in difficult times and needs advice and who can give advice. I hope you reach out to me and we can connect, I'm a super open person don't be shy :)

here for anyone who needs it,
goldenrose

Hi goldenrose,

I've been struggling with off and on binge eating since September, and I'm also looking for a binge eating support/accountability buddy. I've struggled with eating disorders for two years, starting with anorexia, and now moving on to binge eating. I'm too afraid to get help from my family, because they've only known me as the "anorexic" daughter, and now that I'm binge eating I'm afraid they'll only be horrified and judge me. I really want to get healthy, and figure out why I do this, and I'd love to talk with someone who is going through a similar struggle.

Hi goldenrose!
How are you? It's great to see your post! I've been struggling with a binge eating disorder for about two years now as well. Even if I did reach out for some help and made other efforts, I could not get myself to stop. In the end, I haven't found anyone yet, who would really understand me. Seeing your post, I find it a great idea to have a support buddy, who goes trough the same, so I would love to exchange and support each other.
I'm a 20 years old university student (female).
Hope to hear from you soon!

Hi to all of you,
If any of you still needs a support/accountability buddy to counter impulsive binge eating and realize we are not alone, I would be glad to have one/be yours.
I see the original post is quite dated but I don’t lose hope.

Hi, I am a binge eater and I would like to be your binge buddy. Actually, I started binging when I was dating my ex-boyfriend. You see, we ate out a lot and ordered pizza. We also ate a lot of ice cream. I stopped working out and jogging because I would rather spend time with my boyfriend. Anyways, after we split up I was never able to lose that 20 lbs. Instead I gained 20 lbs. more during depression. I gained at least 40-50 lbs. total. It is so horrible because nothing tastes better then junk food and I eat it too fast.
I have been dieting and lost 20 lbs. I don't know how I can ever lose the other 20-30 lbs. I feel guilty when I don't eat and I feel guilty when I binge. It is definitely a health issue. I am starting to accept myself for who I am and not for who I was. I can only move forward and try my hardest to stop myself from binging. Keep the faith. Amen.
