Binge Eating; Birmingham Client Miss P
Binge eating; A birmingham client whom we will call Miss P has allowed us to reprint in full her answers to a question she was asked to answer immediately after a binge eating episode. The quesion is; ‘How does it feel over time?”
Binge Eating Relapse: How does it feel over time?
So I am 6 weeks into a treatment programme for an eating disorder and I have relapsed again. Last night I ate a ridiculous amount of junk food but managed to keep it in, so I guess you could say I have progressed from a Bulimic to a Binge Eater. It feels a bit like playing snakes and ladders with 3 episodes of bingeing in a 6 week period.
The good news is I am not going to cry about it because that isn’t constructive, instead I am going back to basics and have pulled out all the paper work my therapist gave me on Day 1 and I am going to work through it again. Why? Well I know that it works, it did for 5 weeks and maybe I have become complacent thinking I am recovered when in reality I am very much a ‘work in progress’.
Strategies to overcome my ‘Binge Eating’
You see, I am learning the new strategies and obviously I haven’t mastered them yet, but the treatment programme Debbie gave me is working and change is happening. I can recognise the real costs of bingeing are that it makes me feel dreadful, lethargic and bloated wanting to hibernate, mainly because I feel ashamed and guilty. So the true cost of a binge is that I become a fat, lazy, blob who is too ashamed to go out.
Tools to ‘Stop binge Eating’
You see now, I have the tools to get back on track and my overall goal is still the same, to become a lean healthy person. So I will fill in my ‘Food Diary’ and plan all my meals and throw in some of my favourite foods to look forward to. I will complete my ‘Progress Sheet’ everyday and aim to get lots of ticks which means I’m doing things right. I will listen to the recordings everyday for example I have the ‘Overcome Binge Eating’ and ‘Lean for Life’ CD’s to listen to over and over again. I will read through the worksheets I have already completed since they will remind me of all the progress I have made and all the things I could be doing.
Overall my advices to anyone who relapses, do not panic and stay calm, learn from it but let it go, move forward and focus on the new day. Remember all addictions are hard to beat but food addiction is particularly tough because you have to eat to survive, so cut yourself some slack. Even lean healthy people overeat occasionally; the key is to get back to sensible healthy eating as soon as possible.
Recording Miss P is refering to are;
”Stop Binge Eating;” http://www.debbiewilliamsassociates.co.uk/stop_binge_eating.htm
and Lean For Life” http://www.debbiewilliamsassociates.co.uk/lean_for_life.htm
Learning to stop binge eating is more than possible, especially if you allow Debbie Williams recordings to support you by helping reprogramme your thoughts at the conscious and unconscious level.
Stop Binge Eating and Lean For Life each cost £19 as a download (£27 as a CD ) and are like having a one to one session with Debbie but for a fraction of the cost.
You can listen at home over and over to intergrate the lessons to eat normally as a lean, healthy happy person does . If you wanted Debbie to help you personally email her on firstname.lastname@example.org
Each session costs £145. Binge eating can be overcome in as little as 2/3 sessions although sometimes it can take more sessions.
Clients who previously have listen to her recordings get great results fast, sometimes in just one session in which they’ve needed a little bit extra support.
