This episode’s Dear Food letter:
Food controls my daily life.
I think about my next meal every second of every day.
Stress makes me restrict or binge. There’s no in between.
I lost XX pounds in the month of April and May – almost hospitalizing me.
Then I gained XX+ pounds in one month – August.
I binged – cookies, ice cream, anything sugary. Every day sometimes twice a day.
Food controls me. But I am more powerful. I can control this.
Disordered eating is an issue for me.
I want to look like myself again. Not me during restriction. Not me during binging. Normal me. Physically and mentally me.Love,Me
