I have an addiction. One that is EXTREMELY hard to overcome.

Hi, my name is Sarah and I'm addicted to food.

I've struggled with this for so long. I continue to struggle. I want to be healthy, I want to lose weight, I'm READY to lose weight. So why is it so hard?

Wednesday, I ate an entire medium pizza by myself in one setting. Today, I've done nothing but eat. I do good for a few days, then I just stop. Then I get back on it, then I stop, then I get back on it, then I stop. It's getting beyond annoying. And I feel lost and out of control. Right now, my stomach hurts because I had a can of chicken breast, a can of tuna, 4 hard boiled eggs and some easter candy for lunch. All over the course of, like, 1.5 hours. 

I tell myself that I'll do better tomorrow, or Monday. I tell myself, I'll be more active. But then, I just don't have the energy or the want to. 

I don't know what to do........

I'm sure I'll think of more to say, but that's all I've got right now.......thanks for listening.

You could go to an overeaters anonymous meeting, or if you have an ipod you could download their podcasts.  A lot of times overeating is not just about food, but goes deeper than that.

Hi Sarahmy name is Amy and I am addicted to food also. I know your frustration, I feel it every day. I think there's a lot of truth to what the person before me said, it does go deeper than food, I just don't know what it is or how to fix it ? I've debated on joining Weight Watchers because I've had several family members join and have a lot of success, my down fall is having 2 kids that aren't gonna want to eat what is required and I don't have the will power to fix 2 different meals for my family! I wish you luck in finding the solution to your problem, wish I could give you some good advise or someone could give some to me as well! But best wishes and hang in there!
