I have just noticed in my calendar that today was my 1 year binge-eating free anniversary. I have been binging since my teenage years and it was driving me crazy. Then last year a miracle happened...
I was on a business trip, sitting in a hotel room with sweets, potato chips and cola on my bed. I felt so lost and ashamed as I ate my feelings with no control whatsoever. I was close to tears, that's how pathetic I felt.
That's when I found this book "Brain Over Binge" which I'm most grateful for. The first few months were so difficult, I was constantly fighting myself. But looking back, it was all worth it.
I'm still eating my feelings from time to time but a small amount of junk food is enough to satisfy my cravings. I'm much more in control and I feel that I can win against myself because I have succeeded at this.
I can't believe it's been 1 year already. Seems like it was ages ago. I can only hope that on 28th of November 2017 I can say that I'm still doing well.
