WARNING: this blog will explicitly mention some serious binge foods, so beware! So I went out to dinner with my husband and kids last night and had an abstinent dinner.  We decided to go to Dairy Queen for dessert for my son and me.  I got my usual fat-free fudge bar – 50 calories, hits the […]

One of the things that really sucks about this addiction is that when trying to be abstinent, you know that you can’t even eat just one or two of something because you know that one or two is not enough.  I mean, who can really eat just two m&m’s or two potato chips and be satisfied?  A person […]

Such as this sickness does to me, I’m already thinking about how I’m going to handle eating out at a comedy club a couple of weeks away.  The last time we went there, they had baskets of  popcorn on each of the tables with endless refills from the waitress.  So for me, it was either […]

While I’m away on vacation, I thought I would run some of my very first posts which would be great for me to see where I came from, and hopefully interesting for you to read as well. I’m not quite sure where to begin.  I didn’t know I was a compulsive overeater until close to […]
