    That's spot on in my experience Theophania! Good on you, it sounds like you have a good handle on things I've never had an ED but I can imagine you must feel very proud of yourself for being able to fight it.

    I was a massive comfort eater, I would run for the cupboard at the first sign of stress or boredom. Instead of being "driven to crappy food for comfort" I'm trying to work on the things that drive me to comfort eat. Trying to look in the mirror and pick out the good bits instead of focusing on the bad bits. Treating myself well - watching the negative self-talk, getting enough sleep, trying to eat the right foods etc.

    There are no magic answers hey? Its hard for everyone and we all have to beat it in our own way. Oh how I wish wrapping myself in cling wrap worked!

    I have at least 30kgs to loose. I'm 4.6kgs down so far. It's SO hard.

    One thing I'm doing at the moment is making sure I have exact serving sizes for dinners. So, if a receipe serves 6 then I divide it up into 6 serves before I sit down to eat. That way I know I haven't got too much on my plate. Any left overs are frozen in portion sizes and no more.

    Default Why is it so hard...to loose weight?

    Firstly you must really want to make a lifestyle change, not go on a diet to loose weight ... as others have said, you need to commit to a change in lifestyle in order for this to work and not be a temp thing.

    You need a support network, your partner/family need to be onboard with the lifestyle changes as well ... its no use you making changes if your partner/family are sabotaging you by buying foods that aren't part of the plan (ie. junk food).

    Work out what your weak points are and put plans in place to counteract those ... Is it food? Would something like lite n easy be a solution for that area?

    Would it help if a medical professional was onboard to track your progress?

    In my case my GP kicked me up the ****, told me a few home truths which was the kick I needed to get going, he also monitored my progress ... which was all I needed to keep on track - knowing someone was 'watching me'. I worked out what the best form of exercise for me, set my short term goals (5kgs to loose at a time and gave myself a date to loose it by) and set my final longterm goal. I rewarded myself everytime I reached a goal.

    This is first summer I have had the confidence to wear a bathing suit and play with my kids at the beach. That is the best reward for all my hardwork ... being able to play with the kids and having the confidence to do things that my weight kept me from before.

    Good luck.
