Emotional binging is one of the biggest issues I have. It doesn't happen as much for me now that I live with my BF. But sometimes when he is out with his kids or friends and I am home that is when I might binge. What I learned along the way is when I am in a binge I can usually figure out why I am doing it really quick and sometimes even stop in the middle of it. I was in OA, group weight loss therapy and one on one therapy around food. I learned many things from all my experiences but mainly it really is about one day at a time sometimes even hour to hour. I do not keep things in my house that may trigger a binge such as chips and cookies. I drink tea if I am feeling hungry because I associate that with comfort.

I just know that every journey in life has its ups and downs. You have lost a lot of weight and that needs to be celebrated!!!! So focus on what you have done. I like the idea of a break. Just re grouping and maintaining for a few weeks. I also like the idea of a free day so you have a day where you can have a few extra treats or a larger portion. I had a few of those last week and still lost.

The hardest thing about our addiction is that we need food to live. Its not like we can just go cold turkey like smoking.
