…I learned I didn’t have to eat out of boredom or emotional turmoil. I could choose to eat at these times, but I no longer felt compelled to. This was such a relief that I found myself not only more satisfied with food, but that satisfaction spilled over into my life in general…

I wonder sometimes what the actual turning point in my life was…the one thought, or attitude which changed my perspective from -I can’t, to -I can?

I often thought that I had to come to terms with my emotions to stop bingeing. And to some extent that may be true. But when I discovered what really fueled my binges, the emotional piece sort of just took care of itself.
