Well I am working on my third day hopefully of recovery. I am still trying to keep moving on exercise of my half hour walk. I had to push myself to do it today but I made it. I find it hard 3rd or 4th day if I am not perfect in eating I slide back. I go to the dollar store for cheaper price chocolate and gorge. But my eating has been good the past 2 1/2 days. Still have a bit of sugar. I am hoping just to concentrate on walking which eventually I will feel better and then it will become second nature and enjoyable. I find it hard to give up the perfectionism of the compulsive binging eating disorder. I have been struggling since I was 16 now 53. As well I purge with laxatives if it a really bad binge. I don't know why I do it I am 240pounds and do not lose weight when I do take them. I know I have to work on not trying to perfect, but it is so hard to like yourself just as you are and your situation will fall into place. Where do I start liking myself, what do I do. And keep eating as best as you can and not binge if your having not so perfect day. Where do I go from here?
