I can easily be an overeater, because I am on a medication that causes "weight gain." So I try very hard to not overeat and I attend online Overeaters Anonymous Meetings as well as two (face 2 face) meetings a week generally too.

Today we had a huge celebration at my church and of course there was a HUGE meal. That little kid in me that was forced to always "clean that plate" was having a living nightmare as I sat there with that HUGE plate of food in front of me.

Then I realized something: There is no such commandment as "Thou shalt clean thy plate." (!) YAY! LOL...

I only ate maybe 2/3rds of what was on that plate and no dessert. I was satisfied. I was so pleased with myself.

I can't believe it.

I know Eskie has experience with this, but I didn't think it would happen to me so easily / quickly. I've waxed and waned with EDs (90% of the time bulimic) since I was 13. I'm 50 now.

I thought I was done with this sh#t. Now that there has been a stressor in my life that reminds me of old times, I'm rapidly sliding into anorexic tendencies. The normal part of my brain is very worried - thinking about the immediate negatives of the shame I'd feel if anyone at work knew. But the disordered part of my brain says finally your unruly hunger has been tamed!

PS - I have been seeing an ED therapist since 2011.

Sorry to hear that, Shaggy.

It's just an illusion. Don't fall for it. You managed an amazing thing, escaping from that prison... don't go back.

I'm doing OK today. I had a really rough day in other ways, but I did not over or undereat, either of which I can do too easily when things go wrong.

Hey everyone, I haven't posted on this thread before. I'm 28 and in recovery from an ED. It was a bit of everything.... restricting, b/p, overexercising etc. all at different periods through the years. I would like to get into the habit of posting to keep track of whether my ED thoughts are coming up a lot or not.

I am very body conscious at the moment and struggling not to body check. I have lost weight recently as a result of medication I take, and hormones I am on, and have found it hard to keep the thoughts away and not check my body as it's changed. I'm really short of money at the moment and a lot of the time this comes out in wanting to buy the cheapest food possible, which can also mean bland food and just the same thing every day. Part of it is the ED making me feel guilty for spending money on food; I still feel ashamed that I *need* to spend money on food and it tastes nice etc. That said, I did buy something nice to eat today and I am trying to eat bigger snacks rather than the bare minimum.

Nice to meet you, nikon. Sounds like a good idea, to put your thoughts on here.

Don't feel bad about eating cheap food. Do your best. That's good enough.

The mental aspect is all that matters, and you seem to be doing great, dodging the body checking and connecting with people here.

I'm here for you

Feeling like crap. I have been binge eating for awhile now. I'm scared I'm going to get huge. I already am quite a bit over weight. Sometimes I just don't care and feel hopeless now.
