I'm a housewife (happily) and dog-mom. I'm 42, about 70lbs overweight and admittedly I naturally have "love to sleep" and problem and binge eating disorder (BED).

That last tidbit motivated me to design an online support social network and 'magazine' of sorts. It's called BingeBehavior.com and it is my way of working through this problem and trying to give a voice to others at the same time.

I don't drink any longer and my food cravings have changed completely. I used to easily avoid sugar but now I crave it unreasonably. I haven’t succumbed to any alcohol cravings but food, I’ve miserably failed in that category. Also, I don't tend to feel full and therefore overeat.

I exercise in spurts and procrastinate a lot. If it's raining, snowing or uncomfortable out I can easily talk myself out of hoofing it to Bikram. I absolutely hate mindless cardio and do not run. Ever. I never have been able to.

Ok, there are all of the down sides to me. Here are a few upsides.

I'm a kick-ass wife. I love my home and my family. I have a great sense of humor. I'm relatively intelligent and I have a warm heart.

I'm motivated to the extent that I desperately want figure out what is behind this unhealthy relationship with food (a relationship that would be just as unhealthy if I was thin) and learn to re-order my thinking. To celebrate things about myself in healthier ways than I do. Of course, I also want to look better and live healthier so I’m going to hold myself accountable by being completely open and honest in this community.

So, that's me. Maybe I'll adjust my bio later, but it's me right now.


Ok. Your turn.

Political Activism and Eating Disorders - An Opportunity for You to Make a Difference
If you are interested in increased research and education as well as insurance coverage and access to care for people with eating related health issues, please take a minute to read and act.

You can virtually lobby Congress to re-introduce the FREED Act (http://www.eatingdisorderscoalition.org/documents/FreedActTalkingPts0413.pdf)

I really encourage you all to reach out to your members to co-sponsor. You can get involved here: http://www.eatingdisorderscoalition.org/write-letter.htm

It will do good things for people with eating disorders INCLUDING Binge Eating Disorder, as well as enforce mental health parity and access to care.

Please take a minute to get involved.
