Default Binging

I've always loved eating, but in the last few weeks it's been completely out of control. I can't stop, I've gained like twenty pounds and I'm probably going to gain more, and I don't know what to do about it. It's horrible, because the thought of eating makes me sick, but I can't stop thinking about it until I eat, and even after I eat it's all I can think about, I just eat until I can't stop eating. I already hate my body enough without gaining any more weight, but I can't seem to stop. Should I just resign myself to being fat?

NO! Binge on ZERO calorie or near ZERO calorie foods until you get yourself undercontrol. Eat a bag of baby carrots,... a whole head of lettuce! A cucumber a jar of pickles! Whatever.
Get your stuff under control. You DON"T want diabetes, you DON"T want knee and hip surgery, You don't want all of the other nasty stuff that comes with obesity.

That's helpful, actually. Thanks. I've been trying to exercise a bit, too, but it's only going so so.

I'm having some difficulty with binging too... I don't even have an appetite... It's just "oh, that syrup waffle looks nice, I think I'll have one. Oh. I've just finished my 5th one. And dinners just been made. Oh well, better eat that too. Dessert looks nice today..." Eventually I'm left struggling to keep food down and feeling crap and like my stomach is dying.
I'm amazed I'm not overweight, or diagnosed with diabetes or something...

That's my thought process exactly...I'm still totally out of control, and now every time I eat I feel *so* shitty afterward, worse every time. A few times I've eaten so much that I've thrown up, like not even on purpose. I'm doing a little better though, in that sometimes I do little bits of exercise, and I make myself wait a few hours after eating before eating again. I know it's just a matter of willpower, and that once I break the habit I can return to relative normalcy, but all I can do is make slight alterations every day. It sucks a lot.

Do this. REALLY. Do this. Drink a large glass of water before or during a "binge" it will fill you up quickly.
