I feel out of control

My bingeing urges are so bad and ive bit/ spat out food again today ... But it happened after my bf shouted at me on the phone...i think my food problem is greatly related to stress ... Really wish someone could lock me away and force this behaviour out of me ..

What do other people do to stop behaviour ? .. Ive tried exercising as soon as i get in from work (as coming home from work is the time i normally do it after a stressful drive home) but it doesn't happen

life is a journey and we all need to live it

Sorry to hear that you are struggling.

It's great that you have been able to recognize that stress can trigger off these urges. What positive ways do you already use to deal with stress?

Exercise (in moderation of course) can help greatly with stress, although motivation to do it is not always easy as you are finding. Is there a certain form of exercise that you find fun, so would be easier to motivate yourself? Maybe something you could do with friends.

Planning some you time when you come home from work may be an idea.

Do you currently have any support for eating problems?

Take care.

Have you ever tried any relaxation CDs or music? Also I find doing a repetitive task can help decrease my stress level. Something like doing the dishes, so I keep myself busy and have a sense of accomplishment at the end of it.

One of the best ways to get over binging is to make sure that you are eating enough in the day. You should be getting as close as you can to the GDA for an adult. More if your exercising. If you are restricting then the urge to binge will not go. Also, if you are under weight it is hard not to binge because your body is screaming for the extra food.

When I was recovering from bulimia I found making a meal plan where I ate every 3-4hours helped and having a hot drink in between that if I was struggling and needed somthing to distract me from eating.



The average,
well-adjusted adult
gets up at 7.30am feeling just plain terrible.

IM not underweight anymore but i still have my *loose weight* head on so i restrict during the day ... Its only weekends when i loosen up a bit (due to bf being home) and i don't have binge urges .. Just hard to get out of the mind set :(
