Don't know if this will help any of you, but thought I'd post it just in case. It's been a break through moment for me.
As I've already posted, my dh and I go for some marriage counselling. Through the counseling, the subject of my weight has come up. The therapist has recommended journaling my emotions of why, when and what I eat. So on a following session, she asked how the journaling is going. I told her I HATE HATE HATE asking myself WHY I want to eat. I get really angry asking myself this question. I don't know the answer, I JUST WANT TO EAT! Anyhow, she thinks I hate asking myself the question because I don't want to analyze anything. I just want the immediate gratification food gives me. If I ask the question, them I am RESPONSIBLE for eating this or that... I'd rather just eat, and be mad at eating, so then I eat some more and deal with it tomorrow, or the next day, or two weeks from the first binge... That's why I spiral out of control for months at a time.
This rings true for me. Of course that's my story. Not sure if it fits any of you, but in case it does, thought I'd post it. I would have NEVER come up with that myself, but I'm awfully glad my therapist helped me with this.
