Hello and welcome to the team jenny. I don't agree with the weight loss surgery because I have seen too many things go badly in the end. Granted if it is medically justified and is a last resourt then go for it first I would try extercise and changing your eating patterons. For binge eating try to trick your brain instead of telling yourself you need to eat go for a walk or try doing a workout. Maybe after a little bit of time you will not crave food ... you can do it just take it one day at a time and keep trying new things until something works.

The road to success is not straight. There is a curve called Failure, a loop called Confusion, speed bumps called Friends, red lights called Enemies, caution lights called Family. You will have flats called Jobs. But, if you have a spare called Determination, an engine called Perseverance, insurance called Faith, a driver called Jesus, you will make it to a place called Success.

Hello Jenny! emoticon to the team!
I know exactly where you are coming from. I have also been told that surgery would be good for me and have problems with bingeing. When I am driven to binge, it feels as though a monster has broken loose inside me and taken control.
I personally have decided not to have surgery. I know too many people who have had those surgeries and just gained all the weight back. They are now worse off than when they started.
I have decided, I need to try to fix my brain. My weight problem is caused by an eating disorder, not a physical condition.

I am a 38 year old type 2 diabetic. My doctor thinks weight loss surgery is something I should highly consider. I want to lose weight with diet and exercise. I am looking for support and people who know what I am going through. My main issue is I binge eat..........I need to stop. I want to feel good, have more energy, and my diabetes to go away.
