ever since i was little, i've had issues with binge eating. however, in the past year or so, it's gotten way worse. because of it, i gained so much weight. i eat when i'm stressed, sad, anxious and depressed. and sometimes i even eat out of boredom! i feel like a failure and i really don't know what to do. i feel guilty every time i eat. and i'm sorry for my parents for being such a fat daughter. i literally am at the point where i am ready to starve myself.
i'd say try to find other things to distract yourself with when you're bored, or other things you can do to make yourself feel better while stressed. don't do anything extreme like starving yourself or limiting what you eat - it'll make it harder. just, whenever you feel stressed or sad, and the urge to binge comes up, stop everything and give yourself a few minutes to think and process how you feel. then try to find another way to keep yourself busy or make yourself feel better. maybe blast some music. watch a show you like. talk to a friend. maybe just type down your feelings to yourself somewhere. sorry if these are a little silly examples but you'd know best what works for you.
