It took me a long time to realize that I had a problem…an eating disorder. I knew my eating habits were unhealthy, but never realized that it had a name – binge eating. Now that I know I have a problem with binge eating, I am trying to tackle it and start my journey to a healthier lifestyle. Since it took me so long to come the realization that I was a binge eater, I wanted to write a post about some definite signs for anyone else who is struggling.
Trying to be skinny while simultaneously wanting to eat all of the cupcakes is a special type of hell. A hell that I am a part of daily. I’ve finally realized that I have to do the adult thing and start taking care of my body. This was not an easy decision and one that I regret every time I have a salad with no cheese and dressing on the side (Yes, I’ve turned into one of those people).
So, I started this blog promising to keep it one hundred with you guys. Saying I have an unhealthy relationship with food is a severe understatement. But I have a learned a lot from my numerous failures to lead a healthy lifestyle and I’m going to share the tips that help me keep moving forward after a slip-up (aka how I recover from binge eating a 12 pack of ice cream bars…).
