How I Stop From Returning to an Eating Disorder?
I’ve developed a really bad habit of eating pretty high calories foods in the middle of the night, and it has been going on for a really long time. Recently, however, it has become worse, and I’ve gained some weight as a result (around 8 pounds – I was originally 114, as I run cross country and track for school). I keep trying to come up with ways to make myself not eat in the middle of the night, because it certainly isn’t from hunger that I’m doing it, but I can’t seem to. I’m waking up really upset with myself almost every morning, and my morning exercise that is meant to supplement my running training is becoming a means of punishing myself for what I ate during the night. I’ve had exercise bulimia in the past, and want to do anything that I can to keep myself from going back to that. Any advice at all is extremely appreciated!! Thanks so much.
