Hi there! I'm back! Hubby was hogging the computer for most of yesterday--I let him, because I figure he was buying my xmas gifts! HAHAHA! We did some Christmas shopping and then I came home to work out while he did some more errands. I now have a Honey-Baked ham in my frig, because my husband is bringing it to his office potluck on Monday. I don't even like ham that much (too salty), but it looks delicious.

Anyway, I read through all the posts this a.m., and I can so relate to both of you, A and GT. I am a perfectionist to a fault, and food has always been about control for me as well. I have no idea how or why I let myself gain so much weight in the past two years, except that I went to residential treatment almost 3 years ago for anorexia, and my food intake just started going in way the other direction once I started eating.

Even after treatment, I have a VERY unhealthy relationship with food. I can totally relate to the loving to eat but also feeling guilty about eating. I used to go to a nutritionist (a PhD who specialized in eating disorders), and this was helpful, but eventually I just got fed up with paying her all that $$$, and thought I could manage the food on my own. NOT! And then I gained 10 more lbs after I stopped seeing her.

GT, my weight hasn't budged in the past two weeks, because--and I'm ashamed to admit it--I've only been "really good" on Stillman's about every other day. I seem always to find ways to self-sabotage--a "cheat" here, a "cheat" there.

That said, you all inspire me and, I think, help me to have a better relationship with food. Sharing here and being honest helps. I'm determined to have a great day today, and I hope it will really be the anchor I need. I have maintained my 7 lb. weight loss, but I'd still like to lose 15 more.

I don't want to be "stick" thin, because that's a danger zone for me, and I have a lot of fear surrounding that (maybe that's why I self-sabotage?), because there is NO WAY iN HELL I am ever going back to treatment. I don't ever want to be anorexic again.

That said, do I currently have an eating disorder? I don't know. I do know that my attitude towards food is disordered, that's for sure, but I don't think I am acting out in any life-threatening ways.

Sometimes I joke that I WISH I could be anorexic again, because I want so desperately to be thin, but I really don't mean it.

Sorry for the NOVEL this morning! Making up for yesterday.

Vee thanks for sharing your story and opening up. Yup I had anorexia as a teenager. Did the whole psychologist thing at the time--hated every minute--told them what they wanted to hear and got outta there!! To be fair I got better, became a normal healthy weight--which I hated-but it was better than being sick. Tho I hated when people used to say--oh you look so healthy, to me it always meant fat!!

Maintained it well few years--and found ways of controlling weight-not good but hey........and actually on that subject--those kind of stories should never ever be printed in magazines--that's where I "learned" how to stick my fingers down my throat-it had never occurred to me before---first time I tried,couldn't do it- but you know me being the perfectionist read up on it and tried until I could do it well!!

Then I had to take meds for something and I mean literally gained 30lbs in a month---hated it and after that it just spiraled.Then it just got completely out of control and I went the other way. (you've seen the stats!)
I think it's like in "Friends"--Rachel goes to Ross---once a cheater, always a cheater-----once a bad relationship with food always a bad relationship with food!!
I know being "thin" is dangerous for me--again it's the perfectionist thing-(hey I even gained weight well!!!)-how far can I push it?? Can I be thinner than my friends, can I reach a celeb weight. The smallest size in the store--I want to wear it!! I've always associated being thin with being successful and in control! And I don't think that's gonna change!

I do too--sometimes---but again not really!! A healthy attitude to food would serve me better!!

Hi Vee! Thank you so much for sharing. We are all so much alike! Thats why we have to stick together to get through each and every struggle!

I think its great that you've maintained your 7 lb loss! Have you made it 3 days yet? For me, hopping back and forth every other day would be like prolonging the torture. The first 3 days is meat misery and then a whole new world opens up!!!

Im interested in what treatment is for Anorexia? You dont have to give details if you dont feel like it, I can try to look it up. If you had to place me somewhere, I think Id fall in the Overeaters Anonymous Club. I can be so good when Im in the zone, but out of the zone and its trouble! Girlies... I weighed myself today.. 138 :blush:

I hope hubby gets you everything you asked for, Vee!!

I have to get ready for church so I can't post long...

Some really great discussion going on this weekend! You all are better than therapy! : )

I ate a huge steak around 4:00 it had lots of fat on it...by the time I got to the party at 6...I just wasn't hungry.

I ate some gumbo meat (chicken) without the rice...(it had whole boiled eggs floating around ... is that common?) and a little bit of cheese.

All of the cakes & sweets didn't call out to me...I'm thankful for that. (The "thing" this year is treats made from Special K cereal...mixed with peanut butter and Caro syrup...that did look sorta good...ha)

No loss this morning...but I was having cheat dreams before I awoke! haha

I'll post more later this afternoon!!

What kind of things do the doctors say/ask? Like do they focus on the perfectionism or focus on the food?

this is completely off topic, like a lot of what I say (sorry)

I had a dream last night.

In my dream I was sleeping and dreaming my inground pool turned green and yucky. And in my dream, I woke up and looked out the window and the pool was green.

Now... Dreaming in a dream is weird, and I dont have an inground pool.


Carbs are even creeping into my dreams peeps and messing me up!!!!

Morning, Becks! We are snowed in this morning so I think we are skipping church. . The first real snow always brings out crazy drivers and I'm scared to death of slippery roads. . I suppose I probably shouldn't live in Michigan, then eh?
