I know how you feel! I started with a bang and lost weight for many months, then lost my motivation and stopped losing weight and started gaining it back. Ack!!! I wanted to eat all of the time, no matter how much I ate, I felt like I was always hungry. I felt out-of-control. I'm sure a big part of that was emotional. What helped turn things around for me was reading "The Spark". I had been on the website for months, but had never read the book. Reading the book and following the 4-week program really made a difference. Another thing that has really helped me is to eat a healthy carb and protiein every 2 1/2 to 3 hours (as suggested in "The Clean Diet"). Doing that and avoiding processed/junk food has made a huge difference (I still eat is sometimes). I'm amazed at how much my cravings have gone down. Because I'm eating heartier snacks, I had to adjust my calories to eat less at the other meals, particularly at dinner, but I've been shocked at how much less hungry I am at night. I think eating a lot at one meal makes me want to eat a lot all the time. Anyway, I feel so happy at how much less hungry I am and the weight has started going down again, but mostly I feel in control which makes me happy, even when the weight stays the same. Okay, I'm talking too much, good luck to you!
