I forgot to mention…
I visited Plymouth the weekend before last and … wait for it …
I DIDN’T BINGE.
Nope. I stayed by myself, had a couple of hours in which to binge and I didn’t. I even bough an orange. Fruit! When I could have had Maltesers, Chocolate Buttons, croissants, M&Ms, Minstrels, sandwiches, popcorn, crisps, Galaxy chocolate, Dairy Milk chocolate, Wispas… you get the picture.
I got a box of 6 croissants – that’s the least number of croissants I could have bought – for breakfast. Obviously I didn’t have all 6 and I took a couple home with me. My friend who stayed in Plymouth as well and knows of my problem said she’d better not find me in a croissant coma, with bits of pastry round my mouth and an empty box full next to me.
And so to celebrate, here is how I would have reacted if I did binge and she’d knocked on my door:
Ah the endless joy of Eating Disorder memes.
