Default I have never acknowledged my eating disorder

I never really have told anyone, or acknowledged my eating disorder. I know its there, I realised I couldnt hide it from myself, i just had to be brave enough to admit it. I basically comfort eat, and over eat. I noticed when I was upset and angry, a i do is reach for the closest food source. Like when I was upset weeks ago i ate a whole bag of marshmallows. I do sometimes get stopped from eating and it makes me feel really bad when it comes to being banned from eating that food. I am overweight, and losing weight lasted only weeks because i was so depressed. At times I feel like a want to be skinny and want to starve myself, but i end up becoming depressed and eat more. I hate my body, its really gross i have pretty much stopped caring for it, i can scar it as much as i want. But i hate being fat. Everyone says its easy to change, but i cant change everything about me easily so i can overcome all this eating disorder stuff.

Well, whoever said it was easy to change lied. It's totally not easy to change your everyday habits, including the way you cope with your stress. I used to overeat all the time. I still do, just not as much. Do you know the root of why you're comfort eating? maybe there is a medication you can take, or another way to cope with it. Starving will get you no where. Plus, who doesn't love food? (:
I think your best bet is to understand why you are over eating. You should also talk to someone like a friend or a parent about your self-esteem issues.
Hope this helps.
Thanks for reading.

Thanks. I can't talk to anyone. Every thing I've had to deal with was with myself. I'm trying to control how much I eat but I can't do it. I easily put on weight. I don't over eat when I'm stressed though. I found it more when I'm depressed and angry. I'm trying also to get a job and raise my self esteem and confidence but I keep being unsuccessful. Frustrating, really, really frustrating

I'm sorry this is happening to you. I too have a little body image issues and an eating disorder. Is there someone professional you can talk to about your binging and depression?

I too am having serious trouble finding a job. So I'm going back to school. I feel relieved. Is that a possibility for you?

I guess I've got my incentives for losing wieght, which means stopping the comfort eating, although there has been a few relapses.
