So my brother has just left to go back to uni, this for me is I think what triggered my binge eating over the past few months. Once he came back for Christmas, in the past 3 weeks, I have not binged at all.
As he is away, I am on my own in the house a lot more, meaning boredom and also no-one around to watch me. However, now I am going to try and turn this on its head, as a positive, and think that if there is no-one around, then there will be no-one to keep track of how little I am eating and question me about it.
I will miss him terribly, but hopefully I will not get into bad habits now that he has gone.
