    I'm sorry you're struggling :flowerforyou:

    Do you have some idea of what is triggering the binges? You don't have to post it here if you aren't comfortable, but do you know? Often figuring out the "why" is half the battle.

    Have you dealt with periods of bingeing before?

    i know it is depressing, I lost 40 lbs and gained 25 back, got it off so I am being more cautious, weighing every day and watching my carb intake, 100 gr or less. I got a flu and went back to eating and didnt weigh very often so didnt see the consequences.

    Being able to figure out the "why" is crucial. It's the only way you can stop the cycle.

    For example, the smell of coffee brewing triggers my migraines. So, I don't put myself in that position.

    You have a lot going on. Maybe something to occupy your hands. Have lots of low cal foods, like celery, carrots, dill pickles, etc. that take fingers, chewing, and time. And Congratulations on all the new and wonderful things in your life!

    Is your cannabis intake related to your bingeing? The "munchies" are a real thing for some people.

    I got over that for such a long time. I think I need a new strain

    Congratulations on losing so much weight. I am is a similar (though lesser pounds) boat. I struggled hard to lose ten pounds (( i need to lose at least 70). The pounds are trying to creep back. I am going to try to focus on eating my protein and fats and limited carbs. Without exercise I need about 800 kcal per day to lose 1/2 pound per week. I found this out when I was laid up with a broken bone. With my normal exercise, walk 3 miles/day, I get hungrier and have been eating about 1300 calories/day. I know that if I plan appropriately I can stay away from binging. Thanks to all the supportive people on this board.

    What has helped me is eating a little more protein, and that has really helped squelch my cravings. No cravings, less bingeing. What has helped me the MOST is being held accountable by a very scary in real person that I respect. Im being held accountable for my workouts, which suffer immensely if I don’t eat properly. Taking my mind off of the scale and focusing on the progression of my workouts and fueling them properly. Weight is coming off slowly but surely. Good luck to you, I hope you find what works for you.
