I have been overweight since I was 18. Now I’m 45, I have done most diets and can honestly say the slow weight loss is just so hard when you have a lot to lose. I always gave up. I binge ate my way through the kitchen either going to bed early to eat and hide food or stay up late and creep around the kitchen. Most things I ate I didn’t even like. I could tell you what shops had what particular favourite to eat in secret. The change started when I went to Overeaters Anonymous and realised my trigger foods and why I did this to myself. It’s a form of self-harm for me. As usual, though I couldn’t take the slow weight loss.
