There are many people who come to me with a desire to stop binge eating. They tell me that they have tried for years to get over their binge eating disorder, but that they have no willpower, no ability to stop overeating. For most it’s a ritual that happens when they are all alone, a letting go, a release. A time to be alone, to not be bothered, to totally shut their minds down.
Upon further investigation, we usually find that the binge eating disorder is concurrent with a restriction or obsessive dieting behavior.
All eating disorders represent a total disconnection between the body and the self. At some point someone tells you or you are lead to believe that you are not enough. Not pretty enough, not handsome enough, not thin enough, not smart enough, not good enough.. and so rather than coming back to yourself, you try to prove to everyone around you that you ARE good enough. You try to get smaller so that you are not taking up too much space, you eat less than your body wants, you completely disregard your body’s natural hunger signals. You begin to disregard all of your own needs. You stop eating when you’re hungry, you don’t stop eating when you are full.
Your hunger signals and your human mechanism for eating gets completely overridden by your belief that you need to be someone different and you try desperately to control your eating. Which then results in a total breakdown of your natural human eating behaviors.
But it doesn’t need to be this way. You can come back to yourself. You can find peace inside of your body and with food. Recovery is always relational. Sure it’s about healing your relationship with food, but what it’s really about is healing your fractured relationship with yourself. Healing the beliefs and the shame that led you to do harmful things to your body with food and diets and bingeing and restricting.
You are worth recovering. Your body is worthy of love. You are worthy of love and respect. Most of all from yourself. You deserve that. You need that.
