Introduction and Counting Calories?

Hi everyone,First off, let me introduce myself as a new member. I've suffered from eating disorders for the past 12 years or so, and I've always been on some kind of diet even though I'm at the low end of normal for my weight range.  I've tried time and time again to commit to IE, as it makes the most sense, but it's so darn hard! This is my most serious go at it, and I'm determined to make it work!  So here's the dilemma:I've trained myself to automatically count every calorie that I consume…See More

"Yes, I know this feeling... It's akin to going through the line with just a box of tampons... gee, wonder what's going on with this lady. How do I deal with it? Um, I send the husband - ha ha. Eventually I think I'll be able to go…"

Grocery Store Shame

Does anyone know what I'm talking about? When you go to the grocery store and feel ashamed of what you're buying? You feel embarrassed, you feel judged. Today I wanted to go to the grocery store bakery and buy some little sweet treat. Lately I've taken to eating a treat in the evening (not feeling any shame about that) and last night I ran out. I wanted to go to the bakery to buy something new but because I didn't need anything else from the grocery, I felt very embarrassed to just go in there…See More

Introducing myself

Hi everyone, my name is Tasha. I am a 39 year old stay at home mom with a wonderful husband and a great 15-year-old son. My story is probably familiar to many. I was a victim of childhood sexual abuse, occurring intermittently from about age 4 to 12. I don't think it's a coincidence that I have also been a binge eater and secret eater since early childhood. In my childhood and teen years I was never overweight (though I convinced myself I was, because at 5'8" I weighed 145 pounds instead of the…See More
