Hello and welcome Frank! We are so glad you joined us on this wonderful site. Lots of info here but it might get overwhelming. Just take it slow and ask as many questions as you want. Don't ever think any question is dumb. Because if it is something you want to know we will sure try to find the correct answer.
It is great that you are going to talk to someone. It will help. We are here to support in your journey also.
I am a 41 year old guy called Frank. I live in Scotland with my wonderful wife and two beautiful daughters and i am also a binge eater.
I have been on and off the spark for sometime now as well as being on Overeaters Anonymous and the Smart Recovery program. Up until these past couple of weeks i have really struggled to committing to my lifestyle change. Sometimes i would last a week or if i am lucky i would last a couple of months and then i would fall off the wagon. I would then restart under a new name because of the guilt of my failure.
I have got an appointment with my councilor later on this month to address my binge eating problem. What i was thinking of doing was setting some short term goals and setting up some kind of a support network before then. Basically to get the momentum going again.
I am really hoping that i will be able to get to the bottom of my binge eating problem. So i can start making the right decisions and taking the right action to cure it.
