How to Stop Binge Eating Part 4 – Getting Support

by nina on August 24, 2012

howtostopbingeeatinggetsupportNow if there is one thing that I would suggest as the main priority in your big move to recover from binge eating disorder – it is to get support, quality support from understanding people, accountability partners and CONNECT with them daily whether you feel good bad or indifferent

I may be recovered from eating disorders, but this is still something that I need to keep doing, because life is life, it can get tough and like Einstein said, you cannot solve a problem with the same brain and thinking that created it (or something like that, but you get what I mean.)

Reaching out for help, support, helping someone else and simply connecting with the world and its people helps you to show up for your life, for the world, expands you mind and gives you new insights into your problems and some great raw material to work with to bring out your own creativity, passion and joy.

This is one tool that is not to be overlooked – trust me, and I get it, an eating disorder wants you isolated so this is a BIG action step and really going against the eating disorder. You nail this one and you gonna rock your recovery!

Check out the latest video on How to Stop Binge Eating – Getting Supportt ….

 

Now over to y’all… you know you gotta back up the knowledge with some action, that’s the way we do it right.

Thinking about it wont create the change.

Doing will.

If i told you to pick up a pen what would you do? you would move your hand and pick it up right? Can you achieve the same result by thinking about it?

 

Okay, now action time!

Think of 3-5 people who you can get help and support from. Write it down and connect with them daily! Leave me a comment on whether you have done this and has it helped?

Now a second question for you. Would you guys like to have a closed private group or a forum added to this site for support?

Let me know in the comments – remember this is for you! I will base the move on what you want.

The message and power of support and being there for each other is beautifully explained by this Daily Om passage:

“Like birds flying in a V, when we feel the presence of others moving along side of us, there is little we cannot accomplish

Pushing steadily forward, this aerodynamic V reduces air resistance for the whole flock. With wings moving in harmony, the feathered group continues its course across the sky, covering more ground together in community than as individuals. When the bird at the front gets tired, she will move to the rear of the formation where the wind drag is lowest, and a more rested bird can take her place.

By learning from the example of our winged guides, all of us can feel empowered to take on daring challenges as we chart adventurous courses. Feel the strength of others moving alongside you, as their presence lends power to your wings during this journey across the sky of life. When buffeted by unexpected gusts, we can choose to find refuge in the loving shelter of friends and family. We may even marvel as an otherwise difficult day passes by like a swift wind, as a kindred spirit charts a way for us through the clouds and rain ahead. If your wings begin to ache on your journey, look around for somebody else to fly at the front for a while. All of us move faster when we move together. Let your ego drop earthwards as we all soar ever higher.”

 

Love, Unity & Freedom

Hi Nina,
I feel very uncomfortable talking to anybody about my binge eating..
so my support network could consist on some friends to whom I will talk only about my daily concerns and troubles.?

I would really like an online support group!

Hi Nina,

Thanks for another great video, I love the idea of a support group but I think a forum where users can login to would be much better than Facebook as it would be private for people posting. I personally wouldn’t use the Facebook page as i wouldn’t want everyone to see my comments etc, I think this factor would shy people away. A great initiative though and something i would love to see and definitely participate in so long as it was private. Thanks so much !

Thank you for the feedback – we are working on creating a private online forum — stay tuned for more info about it coming soon!

Hi Nina, it has occurred to me many times in reading your posts that the one thing missing is a support network. I’ve had to go back to my 12-Step program because I don’t know anywhere else to get the abundant, almost 24-hr support to talk about my eating disorder and find people with whom I can set up accountability partnerships… the options outside of 12-step groups are limited unless you’re in an actual outpatient program or specific therapy group. Maybe there could be a private, online forum here for your followers to hook up with each other as action partners/check-in buddies… If I didn’t have 12-step fellows I honestly don’t think I could come up with 3-5 people from my everyday life that I would feel comfortable checking in with about my recovery problems. It also helps for it the people to be ones that relate personally to our struggles and have had their own successes. Just a thought!

Absolutely spot on! A support network is so crucial to getting out of the eating disorder’s grips, getting out of the shame and shedding light on what is going on.
It really does not matter where you are getting the support from – as long as you are getting it, using it, connecting, sharing honestly and helping others. A community of understanding kills the power of the eating disorder.
Thank you for sharing this!
I hope you are all working on getting your support network together. Do NOT let the disease tell you that you “have nobody” – that is a LIE — look around, ask the universe and ATTRACT the support that you need.

Love Nina x

Thanks, Nina πŸ™‚ Sometimes, when the bingeing has been incessant, all I could do was this: “connecting, sharing honestly”, and I believe it kept me alive.

Thanks, Huda!

Send me an email at omlovelight@yahoo.com and maybe we can exchange phone numbers/chat more there.

Exactly! Whatever we shed light on, becomes light itself.
The eating disorder loves and breeds in the dark… share, connect with others and you reduce its power over you…

I did my homework. I wrote 3 people names who I can talk with them about my problem but one thing is remaining the support group or the private group I with like to join a one if possible.

Hi Nina, just wanted to say I think the support group is a great idea and would love to see it happen!

Thanks Brittany! I’m getting a lot of positive feedback for this – the only issue is privacy so Facebook may be a no-go…
