What am I using food for?

I had an appointment with my therapist today and we talked about how I can't seem to stop eating too much. When I want a candy bar, I don't just buy one, I buy three, for example. She asked me to keep a journal over the next couple of weeks to try and pinpoint the feelings surrounding my urges to binge. I don't think it's that easy. I have tried to figure out the feelings for years.

I will let you know if I discover anything.

  1. I do the same thing in my food journal: when I binge, I write down EVERYTHING I ate, and how I felt. Sometimes depriving myself of something makes me binge on it, and sometimes it's emotional. I read somewhere that binges/overeating are almost always linked to being hungry, angry, lonely, or tired. Looking back on my own records, it's certainly true - though I'd also add stressed/anxious! Good luck with tracking! ♥
