When things go wrong as they sometimes will,
When the road you’re trudging seems all up hill,
When the funds are low and the debts are high
And you want to smile, but you have to sigh,
When care is pressing you down a bit,
Rest if you must, but don’t you quit.
Life is queer with its twists and turns,
As every one of us sometimes learns,
And many a failure turns about
When he might have won had he stuck it out;
Don’t give up though the pace seems slow–
You may succeed with another blow,
Success is failure turned inside out–
The silver tint of the clouds of doubt,
And you never can tell how close you are,
It may be near when it seems so far;
So stick to the fight when you’re hardest hit–
It’s when things seem worst that you must not quit.

Help I binged!
“I’ll never binge again” or “This stops from tomorrow!”.
How many times have you made a promise like this to yourself?
Yes of course the primary goal of recovery is to never binge eat again.
But in truth, promising yourself that you will never binge again is actually counterproductive.
If you were learning any other new skill, like skateboarding, can you imagine how absurd it would be to commit to never falling off. You’d fully expect to be wobbly and awkward at the start. You’d expect that though, right?
I can’t stress this enough. Having a binge whilst on The Binge Code doesn’t actually mean you’ve failed and it doesn’t mean that you’re back to square one. Just like falling off that skateboard doesn’t mean that you’re not learning how to skate. Although it can be very upsetting at the time, your progress isn’t “undone” if you do slip and have a binge.
We’ve helped thousands of people overcome binge eating and nearly all of them relapsed multiple times and nearly all of them experienced those same fears.
They felt devastated and disheartened, but they didn’t give up and their relapses didn’t stop them. They made it.
They’re now binge free.
