    My name is MamaGrok and I have binge eating disorder.

    How did I go a decade without realizing this?


    Anyone know if it's possible to re-title a thread? When I made this, everyone was just calling them "Primal Challenge Journals."

    Sorry to hear about the binge.

    I think things like that are easy to not see when you are in the middle of them. Having realized this is a big step in itself, and I know God has a way through this for you. I will be praying that you can clearly hear His voice for the way to walk out of this.

    I have had a few big things I have had to walk out of, and I know that it felt just about the worst when I realized the magnitude of my "issue" but it was actually the best thing, since it was a turning point of sorts. I couldn't rationalize it any more, no matter how much I wanted to.

    Isn't it great that God is big enough to handle this, and to love us just as much in the middle of our blowouts as He does in the middle of our greatest triumphs?

    Wow, I posted a reply and it disappeared. It went something like this...

    Yes, I'm honored finally to be offered a tiny sliver of the Cross to share.

    Can it go away now? :lol:

    ***ETA*** Here is the real beginning of my first attempt at the leptin reset - many restarts before I got to this point! http://www.marksdailyapple.com/forum...tml#post487395***

    I am going to try with everything that is in me and all that is in Heaven above to stick to this leptin protocol for 8 weeks. I, my dear husband, my children, need me to do this. And I'm going to use my Sweet BabyGrok as inspiration - at 20mo, her "diaper" rash is worse than ever. It never really goes away now. 100% gluten free, even if I mess up elsewhere. I'm going to get extended family on board, too - no sneaking her treats, and no offering them to me, b/c she's still nursing. She's also showing the smallest signs of the beginning of ECC, which is good that it's only beginning now (an improvement on her four older siblings), but I would love to stop it altogether.

    I am not going to worry about the other aspects of primal living for now (exercise, brain, play...)

    So here we go.

    My 4yo is having accidents after being potty trained for two years. It seems to happen only when his diet is off. Freaking wheat & sugar.
