If you want to start, improve or speed up your eating disorder recovery you may ask, "I know what I'm supposed to do and what I want to do.  Why can't I do it?"  

Why do I overeat?

It's an especially poignant question when the person is overweight or obese. She's often dealing with cultural weight stigma, wants to lose weight for her health, her appearance or even her job security. Still she continues to eat more than her body needs for nourishment. Not only does she maintain her weight, she may  be constantly gaining.

If you are asking yourself why you overeat, perhaps some of these possibilities will help you understand your situation and give you hope.

Seven Ways to Avoid a Binge in Eating Disorder Recovery

Grey wolf
A Native American grandfather was talking to his grandson about
how he felt about a tragedy.

He said, 'I feel as if I have two wolves fighting in my heart.
One wolf is the vengeful, angry, violent one. 
The other wolf is the loving, compassionate one.'

The grandson asked him,
'Which wolf will win the fight in your heart?'

The grandfather answered,
'The one I feed.'

Cravings, urges, temptations each stimulate and lure you to the edge of action. Will you eat the ice cream or diet frozen yogurt? Will you do a drive by at your ex-boyfriend's house? Will you stay on the treadmill another hour? What is the power behind your decision?

Benevolent smiles in your environment support eating disorder recovery
