Thanks for the advice! I found her workbook online. Emotional eating really is a problem for me. I have to be a bridesmaid at a wedding next weekend, and I'm up 3kg thanks to a binge yesterday. :( not very proud of myself. So need to be super-good for the rest of this week. Let me know when you get Dr Gould's book. It's really good. I'm on the chapter now where he recommends alternatives to binging, so I'm going to put that into practice this week!

I do recommend Beck's book. I think you would just have to temper it with Gould's cautions about rigid dieting. She deals much more with how to counteract the specific thoughts that sabotage efforts to eat less, and actively promote the thoughts that reinforce the needed habits. She also does not recommend any one eating plan, but does recommend following one. She says that research shows that few people who depend on spontaneous eating reach their weight loss goals and stay there. She addresses emotional eating briefly. I still think the two of them can be worked together, and I like much of her rational approach. I read the first book borrowed from the library. Then I bought the workbook online. To own, the workbook is much better. But if you can borrow either one of them to get an idea, that would be best. I don't own Gould's book, so I am shooting in the dark, but I will be getting a copy. I have a general idea what to pay attention to and I joined the 21-day No Binge streak challenge on the No Binge team. I'm eating reasonably, close to what I did and have done to lose and maintain. The main thing right now is not to eat more than a few mouthfuls outside of my basic 3-meals and 2-snacks routine, and to not eat so much at any one sitting that I won't get hungry in 3-4 hours. I did that today and feel good.

I agree that it's not good to get caught up with losing for certain events because you can convince yourself to be strict, but then what is your motivation after that? Better to keep looking for the habits that can be sustained forever. However, I am pushing fitness a bit more because I volunteered to be in a faculty-student fundraising basketball game in a few weeks, partly as a way to get more consistent with exercise. So far, it's working.

Hi! :) I'm glad someone else out there is on this program. I've actually just started, but boy do I need it! I've been doing so well this year, but then I went away with my family for 2 weeks. I got back yesterday and jumped on the scale and I'm UP 5kg! Not very impressed :(

But restaurants are my downfall, and we ate out twice a day every day. Oh well, I'm back on the diet again today - and I've got my nose back in the book. I've managed to pinpoint my main triggers (restaurants being one of them) and the reasons why I overeat, but I haven't yet got to the part where I know what to do about it!

Congrats on your weight loss so far! With my recent binge-related weight gain, I've just popped out of bmi as well. Hopefully we can get a handle on emotional eating, as you said. I have a good feeling about this year!

I started losing weight this year because of a wedding that I'm a bridesmaid of in 10 days (so this weight gain couldn't come at a worse time!) but something Dr Gould said makes a lot of sense - When you follow the "look good for the camera" failure strategy, you make a hopeless bargain with yourself: "I will deprive myself for a while as long as I can go back to binging sometime." (p168) That is exactly what I have been doing! When the truth is that I need to address the reasons why I overeat in the first place.

I've also been overweight since I was little. It's been a long battle that has essentially got me nowhere. I'm hoping that Dr Gould's book will help me uncover the reasons why I overeat (because often it feels like I simply overeat since food is available) and why I'm always sabotaging my own efforts, so that I can finally put an end to this cycle!

I don't know beck's program, but I did find a team of hers (I added it to my page so you can get it). Do you recommend it?

I thought of starting a team for this book, but you actually did it. Good for you! I'm working with Gould's ideas and with the Beck program (do you know of any teams using her work? Or how I could find one like that? I could have sworn I saw a team with her name in it on someone's sparkpage, but I didn't follow up and now I can't find it again...) I like his way of explaining the emotional issues best of all the books I've read on the topic. Anyway, I live in San Diego, have struggled with my weight since high school, and wish I weighed what I did when I went on my first real diet 35 years ago! I have been as high as 30 pounds more than I weigh now, but have kept off most of that loss consistently for 3 years. I want to get into my "correct" BMI range, at least, so I've got 13 pounds to go. I'm hoping handling the emotional eating, plus consistent exercise, will be the ticket.
