    Daily Check-in Buddies?

    Hi! I'm new to this group. I stuggle with anoerexia, binge eating, and bulimia. I've been in residential care, out-patient, the works. I'm still struggling, but I want to fight. I want to get better. I'm looking for someone who wants to share accountability. I know I will still fail. But maybe we could encourage one another to share how many coping skills we managed to turn to FIRST, that sort of...

    Disgust

    I'm wearing my favorite pair of jeans, they're really comfortable (nice change from shoving myself into my smaller pair and being uncomfortable every day). I just looked in the mirror in the ladies' room at the local Starbucks. Dear God, I look fat. Ugh. Can I PLEASE just have one day when I don't feel guilt or shame or total self-hatred???? Fuck me

    Out of Control

    2
    And I don't know what to do about it. My NES has really taken a turn for the worse lately. Why do I do it??? I know it's terrible for me-- it results in very poor quality sleep and will increase my chances of progressing to T2D. No matter how frequently I exercise or eat reasonably, this will continue to hold me back. I KNOW all this. It's disgusting how much I eat at night. I'm very ashamed of...

    I'm tired

    I have eaten normally for a weak because my parents have asked me to do so. But every time I eat normally all I can think about is how I'm getting fat and I'm disgusting cause I have no type of self control. It's so repulsive to me to eat and not think of the concequences to just enjoy food. My mom won't accept my anorexia and neither will my dad. But I can't help it and I started hiding food to...

    Binge Relapse

    2
    Ive struggled with bingeing in the past, gaining a lot of weight in short periods of time. For the past year or so, I've really been able to overcome some of the bingeing. I've had some binge-like eating habits, but nothing extreme.I recently moved to a new city, and this past week I have relapsed into serious bingeing. All I can think about is food. Where can I get more? What else is around for...

    guilt

    3
    i can't help but feel guilty after I eat. i don't know why. Am I overthinking it? Am I just being stupid? I'm scared of being fat, of being anything less that healthy. I'm underweight anyways, not by much, but I'm a healthy weight for my age I think. I HAVE to eat on a schedule and eat  certain things that said times, that scares me,too. I don't know what the point of this all was but I hope...

    Eating at night

    Anyone else find it easier to eat at night, when the house is quiet and people are sleeping? I feel less guilty and self conscious if I eat alone, in the nighttime (at least in the moment).

    I have been in and out of treatment for 3 years and lately I have been struggling again for a few months. I am thinking I might need to go back to treatment again because my behaviors are getting really bad and out of control, but my mom really doesn't want me to go back to treatment. She thinks that treatment for me is jut like giving up on my recovery and taking the easy way and that I should...
