I'm just hopping on the, "Ear Hustle" podcast train. Learning about inmate life behind bars is completely mind blowing. I highly recommend it.

For my marathon in October, I'll be flying to Minneapolis. I did some flight research and thought I found the best one, but turns out there was an even cheaper AND direct flight that I missed out on. UGH!

Thank you for all the support regarding my eating disorder. I haven't given up. I do think retraining my brain is probably the most promising treatment. I am in a program with a therapist right now that does that. It involves daily exercises and some other things, like literally telling myself specific things out loud when I feel the urge to binge. The science behind it is pretty promising. I'm still in the baby stages though. And I know it's going to be a long road. Like I said in an earlier post, I have been bingeing for as long as I remember. I mean I remember doing it as young as 3 and 4 years old.

In response to a confession. I hope you can find some answers, OP. It might take a lot of work to get to a better relationship with food, but you can do it. My eating disorder treatment team actually didn't discourage the binges at first; they just had me writing down my feelings about them and they taught me some things to do that I could distract myself from bingeing. It did help, but it took a lot of learning about myself before I made much progress. If you can do some sort of residential treatment, that might be the best setting for you, but I also know it's extremely expensive and not always feasible to do that.

In response to a confession. I think it's a huge step that you know that your behavior isn't learned; its the result of a physical condition with your brain. Good luck to you, op. Hope you can find a good care team.

In response to a confession. That's awesome! I love planting my veggie scraps. Talk about getting more bang for your buck, lol. I'm totally trying this with cabbage. Thanks for the tip!

In response to a confession. It's not about the weight, it's the actual bingeing itself. It's the entire loss of control. It's how my entire life revolves around food. I obsess over getting my next fix all day long. I plan my day around being able to binge. I spend absurd amounts of money on food. I sit in my car or closet or shower crying all.the.time. because I just can't stop. It's hell.

I found out something cool. If you cut the bud off a cabbage when it's small, it regrows like 5 mini heads of cabbage all in one bunch. I got about 5 baseball sized cabbages out of one plant today and I bet you in about 2 years, mini cabbages will be all over the place. They are perfect for coleslaw because they are more tender and easier to cut than the big ones.

In response to a confession. Well, it makes total sense that it's biological. Your stomach has stretch receptors that tell your brain when it's full but some people don't have the signal strength that others do. Other people just have a large stomach capacity and need a lot before the stretch kicks in. There are ways to lose weight while making your bingeing sort of not be such a problem--look into Volumetrics. It's basically what you do except that if you want to lose the last 25 lbs, you'd probably swap some of the higher fat things you eat for things that are slightly less calorie-dense. Most of the drugs they give you to stop bingeing only work for a little while before they lose their effect.

5-10 percent of all people suffer from a condition where the receptors in the brain do not work in the way they do with most people in regard to food. And it can go either way: people who are struggling to eat, because they are really never hungry and people who are constantly feeling hungry even if their stomach is full. But their brain does not receive (or emitt, I forgot) the signal for "the stomach is full/emtpy".
