Binge eating newbie

Hi everyone. I've just joined this fabulous forum. I am 49 years old and 5'7" Over the years I have regularly lost 20kg at a time only to put it back on. The last time I did this was 2008 when I lost it through a lot of excercise and low GI eating. Slowly over the passed few years I have ballooned back up to 95kg and I hate being this size. I binge eat whenever I am on my own and never feel satisfied or full. My husband and I love eating out and I find it very hard to control my intake By joining this forum I hope to find renewed motivation and a few likeminded friends.

Hello Superem and welcome to the weight loss forum ☺

The first place to look is at the Pinned posts section to the right of your screen (bottom if you're using a mobile), read the Welcome Newbie thread first and move through to the challenges, where we hope you'll find at least one that will appeal to you ☺

Move down to the Topics, to find a variety of threads, collated into specific topics for ease of access and we ask that you also 'file' your own threads, so that others won't miss your important news ☺

Have a look at the NHS 12 week plan, as many people have had success with it. Also use the BMI checker to find your target calories, it's important to eat enough. This was a major turning point for me, realising I could eat anything I wanted as long as the calories are accounted for ☺

Don't forget to take your starting measurements and a 'before' picture, as they can be very motivating on days that the scales refuse to co-operate ☺

The forum also have group weigh-ins every day if you wish to take part. The posts can always be found in the Events section on the 'home' page ☺

You'll notice a grey box next to people's names, these are achievement badges, and as a new member you may have a 'Newbie' badge. If you have any questions or would like a Newbie badge please just ask ☺

We've found that to get the best out of this community, we need to be active on the forum, as it's where we exchange information, get motivation and inspiration and make friends. We hope that you'll join us here, regularly, too ☺

Best wishes
