But I think I'm really going to try recovery (from compulsive overeating). If any of you have ANY sort of tips that may be useful in my quest for a normal relationship with food, I would love to hear them :)

I'm going to try as hard as I can, over the next ten days (as a starting period) to:
a) not weigh myself (I was 139.0 lbs yesterday morning, just for reference)
b) eat only in front of other people (I feel like a huge part of my bingeing problem is feeling the need to be secretive about eating in general)
c) not binge, duh
d) drink tons of water and green tea
e) focus on health and happiness rather than weight loss

these are excellent goals.

if you can find the book Paul McKenna "I can make you thin", I would suggest it, it really changed the way I think about food.
i find that focusing on health and happiness actually makes me lose weight. maybe it's slower, but i'm not jojo-ing anymore. also, exercising makes you want healthier foods and makes you happier with your body.

maybe write something every day next week to let us know how you're
doing & to keep focused?

I deal with a similar issue, and I find what helps me is to only eat in one place in my house. I don't eat in my bedroom, don't eat in my family room, I eat in my kitchen - and once you get into that habit, it's harder to hide your food because you have to be in one place to eat it.
