Struggling with food addiction/compulsive eating?

I had the VSG in 2011. Lost 230 lbs or so. Got down to a weight I could have been happy at. But I struggled with my eating and even though I changed my life style, I couldn't stop eating. I ended up gaining about 70 lbs. I freaked out though and decided I needed serious help. I tried therapy and diets and an eating disorder program and they all failed. 

But then I found Overeaters Anonymous. It has been  miracle and has honestly caused such a change in me and my eating. I've been off sugar and flour for 30 days and haven't engaged in any compulsive eating. It feels so much different than any diet I've been on. 

 

My sleeve still works. My nutrition knowledge is still there. If I use what I have, I'll be successful. I managed to drop 18 lbs my first 30 days which was awesome. 

 

If anyone wants more info or wants to talk, send me a PM.

Great Job!  Unfortunately, we don't have a strong group in my area.  Feel more depressed coming out than when I went into a meeting.

If not, there are ways through phone meetings and Internet meetings you could get involved and get a sponsor. I highly recommend finding any possible alternatives. Podcasts are wonderful substitutes for meetings sometimes too.

I just finished my first two weeks of Optifast shakes, and the range of emotions and anger that I have had to go through indicate to me that I am most certainly a food addict. I think that OA meetings would really benefit me. Thanks for posting this, I am going to look into that in my community.
