      Default Over-eating/Obesity Peer or PM Support?

      Does anybody else here struggle with compulsive or emotional over-eating and obesity?

      I'd really like to try and get some kind of network going here on the forum, ideally giving and receiving support.
      It wouldn't be focused on weight loss per se, more supporting one another in the process of untangling the food/emotion connection.

      Not quite sure how it would work. Maybe just having this thread as a place to go to, or if anybody is up for it, a sort of private messaging buddy system.

      Just got back from an appointment with the nurse today and i'm absolutely shocked at my weight, and i'm finding it difficult to process.
      The idea of confronting all of the emotional baggage that has lead me to become this obese - alone - is a bit scary. I can't be the only one?

      This is something that i'm hearing a lot, and i'm going to give it a try.

      My pattern is to not eat anything all day, then from 7pm i'll have my main meal and eat junk for the rest of the night.

      I think it's good to be able to identify our 'binge foods', Lu.
      That way we know what we can avoid or find healthier alternatives to.
      I'm more of a sweet person. I eat doughnuts or cakes, chocolate and sometimes crisps too.

      My goal for the next few weeks is to try and eat more regularly, and find some healthier snack ideas.

      There's really no pressure to say anything you don't want to.

      Plus i'm not convinced that focusing on numbers is the best way forward.

      Think this is an excellent idea, I'm terribly obese, been trying to lose weight for the past year but it is so hard when I turn to chocolates for comfort all the time! I am now trying my best to cut down and eat more fruit instead but it just doesn't taste the same somehow. Why do the nice things have to be so bad for us?

      I'm willing to support anyone however I can.
