I have been binge eating. It is an unhealthy habit and I am trying to put a stop to it. I know I am doing this as a response to anxiety. I need to address the stress instead of escaping it via eating well past full. Realizing you have a problem is step one. Getting help regarding my anxiety issues is the next step. I am looking into though.
There are not a lot of options mental help in my area that we can afford, but I recently learned about the online tool BetterHelp that I think can work for my needs. I have to do something though. It is important for my health and healing. I also know that my mentality could be negatively impacting my hormonal healing.
This is something that has gotten out of control over the last year, but it is not a new habit. When family drama heightened over the holidays I used the buffet of holiday meals to distract me and keep my mouth shut. Though, as soon as the food was put away I was free to speak my mind. Eating is out a temporary fix.
Currently, I have been buying and making too much food and using the excuse of not wanting to waste anything. It is just an excuse though. There have been many things I could have froze to eat another day or items I could have just not made.
