You are reaching in the right direction. I urge you to find support such as a counseling or look up the local Overeaters Anonymous in your area.
By the phrasing of your last question, I sense that you feel a wee bit hopeless/helpless. I'm no professional, but we are hear to listen. And let you know that some of us have felt similarly. (in reference to the awesome ladies of 3FC)
I can not say I know exactly how you feel, as only you know that, but I have indeed thought my problem with food was insurmountable. I found no magic cure. The truth is that I reached out for help with depression and obesity through my health plan at work and found out that these topics are not covered. I do not make enough to see a doctor on my own time and dime, and the OA meetings in my area rarely fit into my schedule. Coming to realize that I would not be able to receive assistance the way I had first wanted snapped me out of my woe is me mentality. I push myself now.
I'm not saying that just pushing yourself is the way, it just felt right to share. I believe you can do this. Posting here, and reaching out makes me think you have what it takes, to either find help, or do this another way. No doubt.
