I'm just at the beginning too, and it's like I know I'm eating emotionally, but I'm not yet where I can intervene before it happens. I'm in a weird space too, where I'm allowing myself to have whatever I want, but trying to stop when I'm satisfied, as opposed to restricting what I eat and then binging. I have cut down enormously on binging, 1 binge in a month-as opposed to daily binges, but it's all new and weird. As long as I eat when I'm hungry, and eat satisfying foods, I don't binge. It's a miracle for me! But I have gained 2 pounds. But I figure as I continue to refine, and work on EE, I will get it sorted out and either maintain, or lose weight till my body is at a "normal eating" weight. My goal is for food to be a non-issue, for the most part. Realistically, it will probably always be there, but I don't want to be hung up on what I eat, or to be using food as a coping mechanism. I've been on this journey awhile, but Shrink Yourself clarified alot of stuff for me. I'm still working through it, but already it's alot better.
Be patient and try to work through the emotional issues. I think those are key to improving your diet and relationship with food.
