I binged two days in a row. Yesterday was my first day back

I binged two days in a row. Yesterday was my first day back on track. Yesterday we has a family outing and it was great, then had a cookout. But through the day I could not be happy. I felt depressed. I was depressed because all the hard work and I binged two days in a row. The worst binges I had in a very long time. I felt sick and dizzy. Yet I couldn't stop it. I keep asking myself why I binged. I didn't feel stressed or depressed. All I knew was that I wanted food and I was not going to let anything get in the way of that. I tried coping skills and it was not enough. I wish I had the answers to why I binged. Then maybe next time I could stop myself before it happens. Today is the second day on track so far. Leaving me with more questions then answers. Answers that I need to fight this.

Like you, I always look for the triggers for a binge, and try to figure out what I was feeling and thinking. In some ways, this kind of analysis is useful, but I believe that in the long run, change should be based on making new habits and reinforcing them. My recent experience is like yours. I had been on a horrible string of binges for about two weeks. Then a couple of days ago I was able to hang on with sheer willpower and didn't binge. I felt so good about this small success that I was then able to not binge last night either. I hope I can get stronger with each day I add to my very small string of successes. Like the old saying goes, "success breeds success." Good luck!

@42longrich All we can do is just hang in there and keep trying. I'm learning a few new coping skills for when I have a trigger. The small successes make a big diffrences and we should be proud of them. Hang in there we can do this!
