so saturday i start my new diet

fruit for breakfast

low fat cheese and crispbread for lunch

raw vegetables for tea and cereal
need to lose it all by aug/oct

anniversary of mummy's death/her birthday x
I'm sorry I wasn't online to see this on the day you posted, but I hope you got through the day alright what with it potentially being quite painful. :hug:
It sounds like you're eating the right kinds of things, but if you can, make sure you're getting enough because what you wrote doesn't seem like an awful lot. I hope you don't think i'm being bossy, just trying to make sure that you're looking after yourself too. x

Anyway, i've been totally pissed off lately because it seems my weight being such an issue to other people.
It's so frustrating that people think it's ok to give me unsolicited diet and weight loss advice, without even knowing me, and I have to just smile and nod politely... :(
I get that they think they're helping, but honestly, it's really messing with my head.

It just seems like everywhere I go, someone has always got a diet idea to tell me about.
It's like i'm constantly being told the way I am is bad and I need to change in order for people to accept me.
To be honest, it makes me not want to live in this world... and then I overeat so I don't feel that emotional pain.

I can relate to what you're both saying topsy and Lu.

It's the evenings that I eat stuff that if i'm honest, I don't really want to be eating. I just can't understand why I do it - I suppose it's what might be called compulsive eating. In some weird way, I feel I have to eat certain things because that's what I always do.

In the past i've found doing something with my hands - colouring in or doing a cross-stitch - has occupied me enough not to binge eat.

It came to me the other day that i've never had any weight loss on medication, and when i've stopped my meds, weight comes off of me almost without trying.
I don't end up the weight I should be by any means, but I do lose a couple of stone.
I know I need my meds, so what can I do? :shrug:

Tasty things are bad for your health. We all know vegetables and low caloric food is better for your health.So my request is less your eating quantity anf eat diet food.

That would be great, I need to lose weight as I'm diabetic now.
Don't be too hard on yourself, I have increased veg and fruit.
It must be hard walking.
Take care

I definitely suffer binge eating. But lately, I’ve been trying to starve myself because that’s like the only way I’ll lose weight. Nothing works except me being on a water/juice diet.

I think it's a great idea Summerset! I've been struggling with BED and Bulimia since i was a teen and i'm now 36... When I was in my early 20s I lost 80 lbs doing atkins over the summer and felt amazing but years later I gained 50 of it back. I'm trying it again but this time its just not working for me and honestly can't keep my eating under control..

It's difficult isn't it? I've lost weight before but gained it all back and more.

At the beginning of last month I started having gallstone attacks whenever I ate anything too high in fat, so since then, i've monitored the fat on what i'm eating.
It's fucking boring me already and all I want is to eat a shit tonne of chocolate. But i'd be in agony if I did.

It's not been easy. Food is a huge coping mechanism and I did find that this month a lot of past stuff around a rape that happened to me has come to the surface. :curseyou:
I'm trying. I'm really trying.

Overeating and emotional eating both are interconnected and it becomes one of the main reasons that cause unintentional weight gain, however, overeating and emotional eating is a mental behavior problem focus to control behavior. If you can do that you can overcome from these problems.

Vitamins, fancy tea and veggi juice have helped me with my weight. Also some easy youtube yoga and Brushing my teeth after meals have stopped me from snacking.
