Amanda's History With Binge-Eating
Amanda reached her highest weight at the end of 2011 and realized it was mostly because she was binge-eating. She knew no one would be home when she got off work, so sometimes she'd hit up several drive-thrus or order food when she got home and just eat everything so there would be no evidence. Amanda said, "I'd eat all day, and I was binge-eating almost every night — eating two large pizzas by myself to the point of pain, then hiding the boxes so no one would know."
"I would get so excited at the thought of having a ton of food; then after I would eat it all, I would feel so disgusting and ashamed," she added. "But the feeling was so good of getting the food and eating it, I kept doing it."
