Here's some background. I am a recent college graduate. I have suffered from bulimia and overall food addiction for 7 years. I have come to a point of exhaustion. I have been in Overeaters Anonymous (www.OA.org) for a year, and I recently switched to a more structured program. I follow a CEA-HOW program (www.ceahow.org). I lead a sober lifestyle (alcohol and I have always been on the brink of chaos). I have been clean from prescription drugs addiction since March 21, 2005.

As far as my food addiction program goes, I slipped a few days ago, and since my denial have come flooding back. I thought I could be an "intuitive eater," and after a box of cookies, a pint of icecream, 3 hot chocolates, a massive bowl of pasta, and half a loaf of bread, I was quite humbled.

I must remind myself that I cannot feel guilty. This is part of my disease. All I can do is be honest and work towards "progress not perfection."

Today is Day one for me, but I will try not to get too caught up in the day count.
