Last night I started the blog. It was a rough thrown together “Welcome” post so that I wouldn’t lose the nerve to actually start this blog. This morning I was driving from a breakfast date with my husband to our home. As I do most mornings, I turned on the radio. The personalities on the radio were talking about writing and blogging, and she said something that stopped me in my tracks. She said “Write what hurts”. As if I needed another push into this blogging thing.
Struggling through a life (or nearly so) of binge eating is painful. It is filled with guilt and remorse and a feeling of “will I ever eat normally?” The normal foodies out there in the health and fitness realm will tell you “everything in moderation”. What they don’t understand is that I do not have a moderation setting. I am either all on or all off, there is no middle ground.
I am not perfect and I do not have it all figured out. I am hoping to use this blog as a way to organize my thoughts and maybe gain support and accountability from others who are struggling with the same binge problems.
