[150]

I did so well today, I wanted to try and turn over a new leaf by eating correctly considering I gained a significant amount of weight after binge eating for so long , being depressed, and simply not doing anything. I did so so well and then I binge ate ice cream and brownies after dinner. I feel like I will never be able to control it. I feel like I've been trying for so long to change and take control of my eating, but I simply cannot stop thinking about food no matter how hard I try. I wasn't even hungry when I ate all the food and now my stomach is hurting and the feelings of guilt have taken over.

@CKBlossom Tried counseling a while back, did nothing. New doctor suggested cognitive behavior therapy, so I’m looking into that but having trouble finding the right person.

Don't be so hard on yourself! We all have setbacks. It's like taking 1 step forward and then 2 steps back. Healing is a process. It doesn't happen over night. It's not always going to go right and there are days we are going to give in to temptation and go back to old habits. Extend yourself some grace when you do fall, but it's also imperative to pick yourself back up and keep moving forward. Don't let shame and guilt hold you down. Those emotions are the ones that keep us from healing. They do not need to have control in your life even when you take a step back. You can do this!
