: 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.

: Thanks..

Yes, that's binging. I used to do the same thing. Actually, sometimes I still do. If I don't eat for most of the day, when I get home (like when you get home from school)..I eat everything in sight. I pick on every little thing I have in the house..whether it be ice cream, cookies, chips, left-overs, etc. I took control by not buying that stuff..or if I wanted ice cream...I'd buy sorbet or ice pops. I try to keep busy so I don't "graze". That's really the only thing I've done. I hardly binge anymore.
