Hey everyone, I have been on here before posting for fasting. I have had a problem with binge eating for over ten years now since I was 14, and I'll be 25 next month. Wow. It really is a difficult thing to deal with. I want to be happier and to love myself more. I want to get on a good track. Fasting really helps me a lot. The hardest part is that I feel like there is a strong part of myself that kind of hates and dislikes myself. I read in my book that the more we focus on the "Higher" aspects of ourselves, such as loving ourselves, etc, the "lower" aspects fade away. I believe this is true. I need to focus more on self-love. Majorly. It is so hard because I have a lot of negative beliefs about my body and sexuality that all play into it. I also have a hard time with anxiety which leads me to binge eating. I have been better when I was 23-24, I was spending a lot of time with my boyfriend and went down to 110 lbs for a while, now I'm about 118 or so, after a binge more like 120. My highest weight was 140-142. I am doing better than I was, but I want peace with food, my body, my exercising, and my life. I want to feel security and happiness inside myself! I hope to fast for at least three days and then maybe continue on.
