Anxiety issues and food addictions can be very debilitating. I am really glad that you are working with a Dr and Therapist.
I know that this is likely a long shot, but when you are clambering around hunting for something to put in your mouth, are you aware, and I mean REALLY aware of what you have eaten over the previous couple days? I guess what I am saying is are you writing down what you are eating, and ensuring that you are getting a good amount of lean protein and plenty of fruit/veges? Sometimes we can eat, but it doesn't fill the body more than a few minutes, really satisfy. Altho' it can be expensive, depending on where you live, a couple oz of lean steak and various veges can work out cheaper and be more filling and emotionally satisfying than filling up on chips, cakes, sweets, burgers, etc.
You say seeing the scales go up makes you want to eat more - well I would be inclined to put those scales away for a while. You can obviously tell by how your clothes fit you, and the scales are only one small part. For some people scales can be a nasty trigger. Use the SP Nutrition Tracker, and hopefully that might have some good impact on your emotions. I know that it helped to keep me on the right side, and as a result I managed to reach my goal after having been overweight for about 30 years. Even tho' I have been at my goal for nearly 3 years, I still weigh everything and enter it all into the tracker, just to make sure that I stay there. It also saves my sanity, because I don't gain, so don't beat myself up!
Good luck to you,
