    Thank you everyone for showing me so clearly that I am not the only one experiencing this. Too many of my days right now are spent almost non stop grazing all day. I'm now 2yeaqrs out and have started to put on a few pounds. This of course, needs to stop right now. So let's all pull our socks up and get back on track.

    I definitely have a problem with overindulging in empty calories. I am not sure what I should do about it.

    Has anyone had therapy for binge eating? What exactly do they do to help you? I'm about 3 years out and I'm really struggling. I'm thinking about seeing a therapist but I'm just not sure what they will do for me.

    I would not exactly call what I have been doing "therapy," but it still might be helpful. I have been doing online Overeaters Anonymous meetings. I have also been keeping a food journal, which I show to a sponsor.

    I've been seeing a therapist for a little over a year now. I've found that I have to be completely honest with myself no matter what and that helps because bingeing is a reaction to emotional issues. It's always been the comforter. I don't know what she does or how she does it, but she's helped me a lot!

    I never did it for eating but I had extensive rehab and therapy for drug addiction many years ago - I kept a journal and wrote in it a couple times a day. I suppose writing down how you are feeling and comparing that to what you are eating might help sort it all out.

    My Dr operated on my stomach, NOT on my head.

    I'm grateful to have the best therapist in the world! She's helped me get down to "Causes and Conditions". I've learned to cope with life's ups and downs WITHOUT turning to something or someone outside myself to make me feel better! Happiness is an INSIDE job! We don't talk about food or bingeing or anything of that sort.

    I keep a journal also. I use ALL the tools in my toolkit!

    Best of luck as you continue your journey!

    I am struggling with my binge eating. I have only lost 50 pounds since surgery on 9/22/16. I have gained and lost the same 5 pounds since before Christmas. This is supposed to be my honeymoon time when the weight falls off. My surgeon states I should be eating 300-400 calories a day. I eat until I am so very full then wait and hour and eat again ...all day long. I wish I had had the bypass because at east they have the dumping syndrome to prevent a patient from eating sweets. I can eat sweets with no problem. Very discouraged and embarrassed because I have not lost the weight I was supposed to. I have to go for my 4 month check up with surgeon and he is going to be mad. I felt like I would be looked down upon at overeaters anonymous because everyone there is just struggling and I had a gift given to me having the surgery and I am abusing it. I have not exercised and know that would help. I won't walk my dog for fear the neighbors will look at me and judge me. Yes, I am in therapy. Thanks for reading. Maybe the fact I said all this out loud, I will do better.

    Please don't be discouraged. I am 10 months post op and I have only lost 49lbs since surgery I do not feel like a failure. My life has changed so much for the better, and even though I'm losing at a snail pace I am focusing on my non scale victories like able to sit in the middle chair in an airplane and feel comfortable and unjudged.

    When I get a hankering for something, most often I work through it. I'm not always successful and currently visiting my kids, being around family who are not disciplined makes it a little harder.

    We have an amazing tool, but alone it can only take us so far. We must incorporate proper nutrition, which means eating high nutrient foods and take our multivitamins as well as probiotics and enzymes for our bodies to function properly. Some form of daily exercise or activities that will keep your body burning fat, lack of it causes our bodies to eat muscle and slow our metabolism and of course drinking enough water is essential to our well being. These are foundations for our lifestyle change success in the long run. It takes a lot of work my dear and our behaviors won't change overnight. I also love food! I also know the struggles of portion control thats why I'm committed to keeping a daily food log to help me stay accountable and try again the next day. I also have worked with a nutritionist post op to help me learn about proper nutrition, and I see a therapist to help me with stress management.

    It is good to reflect at some point and just go back when things were working for you. I'm sure you were working with the foundation tools then. I'm a newbie just like you, but there are a handful of veteran sleevers I have learned from and I put their advice to practice.

    Hang in there!

    50 pounds in 4 months is A LOT of weight! I think you are doing great! You're losing faster than me and I am told that my weight loss is right on track. I can't imagine your surgeon will be unhappy with your progress, for what it's worth.

    Our starting weight is similar though your progress is better than mine. I hope that helps.
