Remember to take small steps and don't try to do too much at one time or you set yourself up for failure too. There are lots of ideas to help with the eating on the site too. Make sure you make use of the articles here and reach out to others just like this. One thing someone mentioned and it helps me is when I get in the grazing mood and can't seem to stop the walk to kitchen back to living room, hand and arm down to plate and up to mouth exercising, I go out side and walk up and down our street. The fresh air and walk seem to take the edge of the desire to eat. And just eat since it has nothing to do with me feeling hungry. You can do this just believe in yourself and take it one moment at a time.

welcome, keep healthy foods around for those binge times. I have found if I munch on some celery it helps and few calories

It's ok to have a snack at night, you just have to plan for it. I chose air popped popcorn so that I get to munch on something and it's only 30 calories a cup. It helps get me thru the night too with no sugar highs or lows.

Hello! Another thing to consider when faced with binge eating is this: when you eat during the day is what you eat satisfying to you? Are you getting enough protein? Are you eating too lowfat? Our bodies must have enough fat to keep our skin soft, our nails from being too brittle, and our hair healthy. Binge eating is sometimes the result of going to the extreme ends of eliminating fat. Fat is very important to our diet and to our level of satiety. Look to add at least 2 tablespoons of "good" fat to your plan daily. Good fats include these: olive oil and coconut oil.

Also consider adding color to your meals. When you select your fruits and veggies to your day try to pick very colorful ones. Color is part of the appeal and adds to satisfaction. Be sure to add dark greens (helps with your eyes), yellows and bright reds.

I agree to the three meals plus three snacks per day. Small meals spread through the day also helps. Look to whole foods too. I'm sure you'll do fine. Just keep tracking, drinking your water and don't go too extreme; include some "good" fat in your plan.

Each journey begins with a single step.

Be good to yourself because you are important.

Love yourself always!

I know this doesn't sound very satisfying, but at night, when I want to eat something, I instead heat up some water in my favorite mug, and add a little bit of lemon juice. It's nice and warm, it relaxes me, and gets my body in the relaxing frame of mind. Plus, it's more water, and the lemon juice is a mild diuretic. Win - win!

I believe you can do it. We all make mistakes in our new eating habits, don't beat yourself up over it. Remember tomorrow is a whole new day. I find that eating 3 small meals and 3 small snacks a day keeps me from wanting to binge. I feel satisfied and I'm not hungry. Keep track of all your food and allow some of those things you think you can't have. As long as it's in moderation and stays within your nutritional count having something special now and then keeps you from feeling deprived.

With God all things are possible

I'm a 37 year old stay at home mom. My start weight is 270. I hope to lose 70 lbs by July, 2012. I just started this program yesterday, and I'm having a hard time staying on track. Around 8pm I always want to binge. Just trying to stay positive.
