      Are there any particular foods that you know are a weakness for you?
      Just wondering it there are any alternatives you can have?

      The other thing i'm trying at the moment is to try and half my usual intake of 'junk'.
      For me, I can't cut everything all out together in one go, because I know it's just going to make me feel crap emotionally and if anything, it'll make me want to eat more.

      Sending hugs your way.

      My problem isn't binging on junk so much as
      I like really big portions of my food.
      When my mum comes round she always asks for a small portion and it's ALWAYS to big.
      So one time I gave her a tablespoon of rice and a teaspoon of curry

      Read this on the guardian website about comfort eating In the obesity blame game, it’s easy to forget the role emotions play in food | Society | The Guardian

      i definitely use food to soothe myself, it is a very difficult thing to address. The meds and anxiety being outside the house don't help either

      I know you don't need me to tell you this, but make sure you stick to weighing in once a week at the very most.
      It can be very easy to do it more often and in the past, i've fallen into this trap and become obsessed. It didn't do me any good at all!

      Also, remember that women can be between half a pound and ten pounds heavier around their period.

      Go easy on yourself too, most people have some treats on Easter.
