My Disorderly Eating Habits

The definition of Binge Eating according to Google, Bingeeating disorder is a serious eating disorder in which you frequently consume unusually large amounts of food and feel unable to stop eating. Almost everyone overeats on occasion, such as having seconds or thirds of a holiday meal.”

Starting around the age of ten when I started receiving money for school funded lunches such as “Hot Dog Day” and “Pizza Day”, instead of saving my money for those intended days, myself along with my friends would seek across the school ground over to a corner store across from Bobolink Park and buy loads of chocolate bars and candy. Why? It was a bang for your buck, sort of deal.

Of course, I was not going to be able to take any of this junk food home with me as my parents would then become aware of my leaving school during the lunch hour, so that is when my journey into the dark world of Binge Eating began. I am ashamed to be a Binge Eater by all means, but there are days when the temptations are just so strong and my old habits just never seem to die down.

However, with my current weight at 375.5lbs, there comes a point where you have to make the change or these killer habits are going to kill you before they kill anyone else. I fully understand that I have done this to myself and I am solely to blame. Just a week ago, I was placing all the blame on my psychiatric medications, and yes they do play a role too, but they are not fully responsible.

At the moment due to a condition called Osteomyelitis (Bone Infection) in my left leg, a rather serious matter at this time. I am on exercise restriction until further notice. So I have to rely solely on diet.

As my sister has changed her life around and is making strives in her life that truly make me so proud of her, she inspires me to do the same with me life. Everyone is addicted to something whether that be food, video games, or alcohol. Everyone is a victim of some form of addiction.

However, now is my time to admit to my wrongdoings and take control of my life and stop blaming the world for my problems.
