Maria, there are four good clips on YOUTUBE with Dr. Gould being interviewed and one of Joanne a patient who was a binge eater. Do a search there and watch them. (Sorry, my son is downloading something and my computer won't log on to YouTube for me to post the link.) The clips are worth watching.
It's so true. We just have to do it, but there is so much in that "just." I said before that I realized that when I lost weight before, I hadn't really learned how to deal with urges because for periods of time, the urges went away, or if they came, I could somehow nip them in the bud before they were an issue. This winter, I joined a weight loss group at work and discovered that being in the group was not the reason I lost last time. I was just ready! I am the same weight I was 8 weeks ago, and am no smaller, either. But, I have been able to keep to the plan on some afternoons and evenings, which is the real danger time for me. I know one thing I have to do is to keep remembering how good it feels to be hungry for dinner and to be just comfortably satisfied after dinner, as well as recognizing what emotion I may be surpressing and what might better solve the problem. It may be taking action or it may be just diverting. Good luck to us all!

Wow! This is amazing! After another binge, I was just thinking I need to get back to the Shrink Yourself program! I just went on Sparkpeople looking for a bulimia team and, lo and behold... what did I find! Thank goodness this team is here! I worked the program recently. I have the book and know the answer is there. I felt the book was speaking directly to me! I just have to work it.
