: this is my situation, and i don't even know if it's a real problem or not. in my opinion, i'ts becoming a problem.
: i am a 21 y/o college student and i seem to be having issues with food lately. i'm about 132 lbs, and 5'3'' - which
: seems normal to me. but anyway, lately i sit down to eat and i can eat a ton of food, just gorging myself. for example..
: i'll come home from school and have some ice cream, about 3 pieces of peanut butter and bread, some chips, 3 bowls of cereal, etc.
: you get the idea...i eat and EAT (in one sitting)! until i feel sick, then i stop of course. i don't throw my food up and i really have no desire to.
: obviously doing this makes me feel depressed and tired. i do work out a lot, i love exercise, so i guess that's how i maintain a figure

When I read your entry is like Im reading something I wrote.
(same age, height, weight, & college student, scary right?
I am going through the same thing as you. This is something that is starting up on me. I have
always been a strict dieter.
However because summer is over (here in the east coast), and a change of schedule, I have
lost all concentration and motivation and stoped dieting. I 've started to binge. I would eat a
whole pint of icecream, plus cookies ,plus anything that I forbid myself when dieting. I went to
B&N & picked up a book tittled "overcoming binge eating"
Are you bored, depressed, tired, anxious when you binge?
are you going through personnal problems? Are you a strict dieter?
Im reading the book right now, and am starting to treat my problem. (Binge Eating Disorder)
so........ let me know. I would definitly like to keep in touch with you.
Im glad im not the only one in this boat. maybe we could exchange emails.

Like you I dont throw up .
anything that i forbid myself when Im on a diet.
