The important thing to know is that you’re not alone. All over the world, millions of people are going through the same issues as you are. Whether you call it binge eating, compulsive overeating, or a scientific term such as "eating disorder" it all boils down to the same thing: an emotional dependency on food.

I grew up in a small town and had a normal and happy childhood. However, from my earliest memory and all through my teenage years, I had always been overweight.

At first, it didn’t really bother me, but as I grew up and started noticing girls, the desire to change my life and my body became stronger and stronger. I used to stay up at nights dreaming of being thin and fit. I wanted it so much, but it just seemed like my body and mind had other ideas.

You see, I always had a love-hate relationship with food. I loved all kinds of fattening food and turned away from what was healthy for me. Plus, I was a fast eater. Not a nice combination. When most kids my age were through their first serving of pasta, I’d be eyeing my third! The trend continued and I’d often find myself munching away at one thing or the other. Didn’t matter whether I was alone, had company, was watching TV, curled up with a favorite book – or sometimes, just plain bored.

Of course, I tried to lose weight a couple of times. I read about a number of diets and attempted a couple. Eat heavy breakfast, eat no breakfast, high protein-low fat, high fat-low protein, all-carb, no-carb, all-meat, all-liquid, all-fruit – there were so many diets out there; some made sense, others didn’t. Every time I tried something new, I’d feel so excited. I thought this would finally be ‘it’! Predictably, I would lose some weight, only to gain it backwith interest.

You distance yourself from any activity that exposes flab; which leaves out swimming, sexy beachwear and skinny-dips! You don’t want to meet with old friends because their half-serious ribbing hurts you. Romance is a dud because you’re often left holding wineglasses while your friends meet the beautiful ladies! Slowly, you find yourself missing out on all the good things in life. It’s just you and the relentless pain of being overweight.

How did I get that way? At that time, I really didn’t know. I couldn’t figure out why I had this uncontrollable frenzy for eating. Quite often, I did not even realize how much I was eating. I felt like the victim of an unknown disease. I was angry, afraid, ashamed, hurt and totally helpless. My body was betraying me and my mind was punishing me. Where could I turn? Read more…
