For anyone who's ever struggled with uncontrollable eating, there's a book that's supposed to help us get over it. It's entitled Brain Over Binge by Kathryn Hansen. I'm only at the first chapter, and already I feel like she's describing MY experience - the humiliation, the shame, the self-pity, the self-hatred, the daily promises that start with "starting tomorrow ..." She talked about waking up on New Year's Day covered in sweat, holding a soda and a Pop-tart. I've done that, but my "drug" of choice was Pringles. She talked about indulging during the holidays meals, but saving her full-on binge for when everyone's asleep. I just did that last Christmas and New Year's. I feel like she's talking to me and about me, so I'm optimistic that it'll help me. I hope it'll help someone else too.
