Bad Angle--you seem to be in a cycle of this. You lost 70 pounds--something triggered in your brain at that time that it was O.K. to "eat" again. And you went right back to the foods that you enjoyed most. Is it possible that if you ate a "little" pizza-tacos during that 70 pounds lost--that you wouldn't have felt the need to binge on those items a year later? Only you can answer that question.

But the entire point to long term weight loss is eat less--move more. Note that there is no guideline for what you can or cannot eat in that statement--it's just eat less of it.

Just a suggestion--half size your portions of anything you like to eat-adding to that of course vegi's and fruits. Cut back on your exercise. 1-2 hours of cardio daily is probably too much for you--it's even too much for many skinny people. Do that every other day--then work up to 4 times a week. I would also find a hobby to get your mind off of food. Even a paint by number is going to sit you at a table for hours focusing on painting a picture that also keeps your hands busy. If you can control your mind--you can control your weight.

Typically weight that is lost slowly stays off--probably because the person has the time to make a life-style change of how much they're eating and exercising--where it becomes a good habit they acquire-which then becomes something they like to do-versus something they hate to do because they're so focused on rapid weight loss--which often turns into a yo yo diet-that brings on the binging.

Good luck to you--and don't give up.
