Since October 2006, I have personally responded to over 1,000 emails from people like you who have asked a lot of great questions.
Many were the same questions I had asked myself when I first learned of Binge Eating Disorder . Others were questions I had asked myself when I was learning to overcome Binge Eating Disorder. And there were many, many other questions that came in that didn’t even come to me.
So many questions… so many answers.
Recently, I spent countless hours going through each and every email that I’ve ever replied to over the last 3 and 1/2 years and broke everything down into 8 categories:
As you can imagine, this was a TON of work, but it has been well worth it because of the great feedback I’ve recieved from many of you. The Binge Eating Disorder Q&A Special Report is over 80 pages long and covers nearly each and every single question you’ve asked or will ask yourself as you take your journey to becoming binge-free.
Also, for those of you who have read my ebook, “End Binge Eating”, you know that I never fully go into all of the details as to why I started binge eating. Well, I did share my story with many of you via email… and because so many of you thought it was so helpful and could relate, I disclose everything for the first time in 3 and 1/2 years in the Binge Eating Q&A Special Report .
Here’s just one of many emails I’ve received from people like you, after she read my report:
I am 50 years old and have been a binge eater since about the third grade. I must tell you that I am so ready to STOP bingeing. I am 50 years old! Enough already! Although I’ve never been more than 20 pounds overweight, bingeing has still caused huge problems for me. I’ve struggled with digestion problems, isolation, grouchy negative behavior, and have been stuck for years with this ineffective way of coping with stress and soothing myself when upset, bored, tired, angry, whatever. I am coming to a new time in my life where my daughters are in college and my nest will soon be empty. I am trying to “figure myself out” and dealing with my binge eating is long overdue.
I have only been able to put a name to my disorder in the last few months and I appreciate your website and products. I admit that I researched binge eating disorder and came back to your website many times before actually purchasing your e-book. As I read in your Q and A what caused you to start bingeing, I saw myself in your story.
I also binged because of becoming aware of boys and feeling uncomfortable in my skin. You talked about the thrill you felt as you raided the kitchen–I hadn’t thought of it in that way, but now I realize that my reaction at the time was the same. I somehow felt powerful to be in control when my parents were out of the house.
Your e-book has resonated with me in so many ways. The journaling, affirmations, personal growth, and exercise recommendations are right on. I think the biggest thing that I have gotten out of all your material is that I have to change my way of thinking. To do that, I recite affirmations daily. The best are the ones you recently sent out with your newsletter. They are written from the point of view that I am ALREADY healthy. Honestly, if I can change my thinking, I know that I can beat this thing. Thank you for all you are doing to help.”
