I need some help! I am 25 years old and 50 pounds overweight. I have a histroy of eating disorders - mostly related to BP.
I binge on sweet things when I'm hypomanic and have no regards for consequences. (it CAN'T happen to me - I am above that! - type thinking. lol ) I go on starvation diets when I am manic. And I binge eat when I am depressed.
I am absolutely hopelessly addicted to sugar to the point where everything else tastes awful to me. I know this is temporary, but still, it's REALLY hard.
The hard part is living with my SO. He's very thin and eats a lot of junk food. I've gained another 15 pounds living with him!
I got completely fed up today and chucked all the junk food. I won't be home when he gets home from work, so I sent him an email. Essentially saying that we make changes together or I have to live alone for a while.
I don't know what to do or how to do it. (and I told him that in the email) I don't think sudden changes will go over well for either of us.
He will insist on eating meat every day, but he does like fish. He likes salads with hard boiled eggs - I do too. Other than that, I can't think of anything.
