so i keep reading about how so many people who have an ED can lose a significant amount of weight but once they do want to (and usually do) begin to binge once again. I am also in this category and wonder sometimes if i just feel so uncomfortable with losing the weight and being healthy and balanced that i gain it back as if i dont deserve to be healthy, slim (at a healthy weight) and happy with my body. Could this possibly be from a low self esteem...that we are so out of our comfort zone being happy with ourselves that we sabatoge our success and eventhough we are miserable heavier and bingeing it has become a "comfort zone" for us that we revert to when different stresses come into our lives (as they always do). Feeling sorry for our selves over our weight and eating and the self-hate that accompanies this is what we feel we deserve rather than happiness, success, health, love, a full and abundant life...do we feel so undeserving of these things in our lives that we destroy all chances of it when it does pop up and we begin to enjoy those things? its kinda like people who cut themselves..they are dealing with their feelings through cutting anf we do it through eating..our pain, hurt, anger, frustration, etc, coming out...
