I can get to the point where I'm indulging too much but not lately. I try to keep things I like too much out of the house. Pizza, brownies, salt & vinegar chips etc. if they aren't around I don't just eat to eat.

I can say I probably am..or I was..I love food. I will eat till I'm sick when it's "that time of month". I'm just glad I'm not a overweight anymore, so it doesn't really matter.

When I'm upset/stressed..yes. Very bad habit. It fills an emotional void for me.

My mom is. She will just be sitting there, and pick up a bag of chips and just start chowing down. I was at her house the other day, and I was there for at least 6 hours... I swear she may have NOT had food in her mouth for a total of 20 mins... i was like Mom seriously, you don't need to be eating! lol

But she says she's a "binge" eater and it's a disorder.. she can't help it. smh..

But she only weighs between 130 and 140 lbs. And she's 5'6

I have the opposite problem. when I am upset or stressed, I can't eat. I lose my appetite. 

Quoting EmmaGlenn20:

Yes.
Food addiction is real.

I had my stomach surgically altered in an attempt to help.

Its an addiction like crack. Only difference is you can't just not eat for the rest of your life
