Default Things are starting to fall into place.

I'm checking out various sites that deal with compulsive overeating some based in the USA others over here in the UK and it's opening my eyes.

I have to face it, I have a problem with food. Take last week for example I went to my WW meeting and bought 8 boxes of chocolate bars.I ate them all in one evening that's 40 bars in 3 hours, I was craming them in and crying at the same time. Does this sound familiar to any one. Eating and hating yourself for doing it yet you just can't stop eating until every mouthful has gone.

Since that incident I decided to leave WW because although for some it works for me it just kept reminding me what a failure I am around food. I won 2 silver 7's in 18months but I'd been putting the weight back on and to be brutal with myself I didn't care. I was using WW as a social club to meet up with friends before we went on to have lunch.

Binging? I'm eating now as I type this yet 2 days ago I was fired up to start again, this time calorie counting.

I have a very supportive husband and he's come up with this idea.

I open up a savings account in my name and for every 1lb I lose he will put in 10 then once I've lost a stone (14lb) I can withdraw 100 to spend on clothes, make up hair, beauty treatments, whatever I want as long as it is for me, this will happen for every stone I lose until I reach my goal weight he will then buy me a nice little second hand car! The remaining money in my account will go to The National Autistic Society. Then the account will be closed.

I think that your husband's idea could work - but motivation cannot come from outside sources, it has to come from inside YOU. YOU yourself have to be the one who fully commits to weight loss and your health.

It's great that you have a support system in place already, and are able to set yourself up for success; remember, though, that you will have to stay determined, even when clothes and makeup don't seem worth it.

Good luck!

I agree with little lion, its great that your husband is supporting you but the motivation and strenght has to come from within. I struggled with it myself and I actually had lost 35lbs most some motivation and part of it was the fact that I stopped checking in here daily. Well I gained back 20lbs but Im back in the game. THis site really helped me get to the point that I am at now and I would incourage you to use it as much as possible. There is nothing like others who are traveling down the very road we are for hope and inspiration. Good luck !

I know that, as that well known saying goes, 'the buck stops here' and that's with me. However it is nice to know that he is behind me in my efforts to get in control of my eating. I'm also realising that I need the support of people like yourselves who truly understand how I'm feeling, who are facing their own food demons. Support is I feel crucial, so I'm here feeling both excited and terrified at the same time.

I've noticed that at the bottom of peoples post's there are tickers showing how many lbs they have lost. I like that idea, though I wonder if there is one to show how many minutes, hours, days etc some one has gone without binging. If there is such a thing I think I would like one of those as well.

hi sweetie. I have actually gorged on candy bars crying at the same time. Yes, it has to come from within you. I like your supportive husband's idea. I have set my own little rewards. Like a new pair of roller skates when I reach 150s--roughly around my birthday.

I just want you to know you have support at this site.
