Nervous newbie needing lots of help!

Hi everyone. I'm 35 and have somehow managed to become 3 stone overweight and am feeling thoroughly miserable. After trying and failing at slimming world again I think it's now time to stop all of that and try to remember how to actually eat properly!! Any help and support will be massively appreciated

I am a binge eater too so I do struggle. Vicky xx

Hey Vicky,

Good for you for taking this massive step. I too am new to this site but deaf not new to bingeing for no reason. Good, good luck to both of us. Your words resonate with me - what I really want to do is remember how to actually eat properly - so true. I don't want all these guilt trips that come with "shall I, shan't I?" Or the daily "today is the day I start". I want it gone, to be replaced with the same feeling I have when brushing my teeth or going to the loo: no feeling or thoughts, just normal behaviour. All the best.

Good morning Vickytoria, i am pleased you have joined the forum lots of support here.

I can relate to your binge eating, for me it was boredom, feeling tired and lack of motivation. I would suggest keeping busy, go on a walk when you think a binge is coming on. Don't skip meals, this make you hungry for all sugary foods. For me it took time to break the cycle.

Wishing you well on your weight lose journey

Hi Vicky, I know exactly how you feel. I'm a shade older and the naughty habits are tough to break. I've found its helpful to have a diet fizzy drink when I'm feeling like snacking. I'm now ready to trade that to water. Its definitely helped me avoid the snacks.

Good luck

Thankyou so much to all of you for replying. I am exactly the same and just feel imprisoned by my eating habits. I just want to be free of it! Xx
