Is this an eating disorder

If you're fat and you weigh yourself every day, sometimes multiple times a day. You can't stop thinking about how unhappy you are with yourself but you can't stop eating either. You try calorie counting and working out and last maybe a week or two tops before giving up because you miss the other foods you used to eat. Is this an eating disorder or just poor self control?

Sounds more like poor self control and poor self image.

This is my current struggle. :( Plus I'm always massively hungry because I'm breastfeeding. I feel so stuck and hopeless.

I probably am not a good person to give an opinion.
I don't think it's an eating disorder, I am very scale conscious
But I say I am just focused right now.
I am very tired of being fat. I don't know if being unhappy with your weight is a bad thing

I think its the meds I was on that are messing with me now. I've always been fat but I could get away with a lot more in the past. Now if I smell a cupcake I gain 10lbs. It sucks!

That does suck, I am sorry
I know I have to be very careful about everything I eat
One day of slacking I am up 5 pounds and it takes 2 weeks to get off again
Good luck! You can do it! If I can, I promise you can
