But the medical community and society treats all overeating as a mental problem or choice. People who are obese must be lazy or eating to mask some deep seeded issue. And that's not true. As long as it's treated this way, no treatments will be developed or researched. I see tips like, "Don't keep trigger foods in your house." Well, I've driven 25 miles at 3:00 in the morning to the only fast food place open so I can binge. When I was a kid and couldn't drive and didn't have the money, I stole food. I used to pet sit for neighbors just so I could binge on the food in their house. I literally planned my life around my need to eat. It is a living hell. I manage it by bingeing on healthy food now, but I still don't feel in control. At all. I feel like I'm white-knickling it. I don't think people who don't suffer from them truly understand.

I have Binge Eating Disorder. Some of my earliest memories are of bingeing. I remember being 3 or 4 years old and eating whole packs of raw hot dogs, entire boxes of cereal, anything I could sneak into my room. I was never abused. I had a great childhood. It is not psychological. It is a physical need to eat all the time. I spent most of my life overweight, but am a normal weight now. I still binge. But I have restricted what foods I can eat. I basically eat Whole30 all the time. No sugar. That said, i can an entire chicken at a time. I can eat 10 eggs. I have been to therapy a gazillion times over decades. But it doesn't work because like I said, this is not psychological. Some meds have helped, but they wear off after a few months. I watch My 600 Pound Life, and I get it. I see what they eat, and I have totally done that before. I think a lot of people fall into the same category as I do. cont'd

Am I the only one who never even heard of Nipsey Hussle before he was killed? Truth be told, I still don't know what he did. Was he really that famous?

I learned that Cowboy Curtis (from Pee-wee's Playhouse) is Lawrence Fishburne. How did I go 30 years without realizing this?! I'm trying to watch The Mule and can't even focus during his scenes because all I see is Cowboy Curtis.

And so finally, I decided to finally put yoga classes during lunch out there. I am Registered Yoga Teacher, but haven't taught in a several years. Now that I'm feeling more confident at work, my abilities, and I'm ready to teach weekly to our small, close knit office! During one of my sleepless nights (depression still f-in sucks), I thought about yoga mats donation programs where mats are donated to people doing yoga service. Since we're a nonprofit, I decided to apply at 3am, included my previous yoga service and what I plan to do with the mats (offer free classes for people managing PTSD, depression/anxiety). I just learned today I was accepted and I will receive 10 yoga mats! I don't even care that I requested 20, I am just so freakin' excited! It brought happy tears to my eyes which I had not experienced in a long time.

In response to a confession. So, I ended up doing 500 push-ups for month of April and was the top leader. Holy cow, I feel so much stronger and see my defined arms! In total our office did 3,152 push ups...I am so proud of amazed by everyone, kept a spreadsheet and at the end awarded Top 3 leaders with a small prize. Everyone loved this and the Exec. Dir. informally promoted me to office Wellness Coordinator. We are keeping it up with exercise of their choice for April Challenge.

True story: I was once married in Vegas on Halloween and it ended up being filmed by the Travel Channel. I was so pissed that my ex signed us up to be filmed that I sarcastically used the word "journey" repeatedly in our couples interview. Like, being with him has been a JOURNEY, and being a part of this show is a party of our JOURNEY. I still hate that man. And that word lol.

A lot of litigants on Judje Judy always explain their case saying "basically". I love it when she says to them "not basically".

OMG, yes I hate the word "journey!" They just used it on a skype meeting I was on for work. We have been doing a month-long training series on customer service. They referred to this training as a "journey". NO! NO! NOOOOOO! It's not a journey. A journey is packing your knapsack for a two-week long train ride across the country. Sitting through boring BS training sessions is NOT A JOURNEY.
