Where do I go from here?

How do we end up where we are today? From the first diet, from the first time we tried to starve ourselves skinny, diet pills, on and on. Some of us end up with eating disorders and some of us not. Some of us give up and some don't. I'm tired of it all....the restriction, counting, diets, and all of the solutions out there. What I have come to know it is not the food, but what we tell ourselves. The words we say that leads to the same cycle over and over again. Like being crazy, insane ...
How do we end up where we are today? From the first diet, from the first time we tried to starve ourselves skinny, diet pills, on and on. Some of us end up with eating disorders and some of us not.

What I have come to know it is not the food, but what we tell ourselves. The words we say that leads to the same cycle over and over again. Like being crazy, insane with food.

I'm 57 and I used to think, oh when I get older I won't binge anymore, well that was wrong as I still do. Gaining 25 pounds since February of this year on top of what I already had to lose.

I know my screen name is never give up - but I do feel I have given up on trying. Bottom line is look at life and see what is causing it, and try to fix the issues, NOT the food. Food is not the issue.

So where do I go next, have no clue, but keep on trying to figure it out. Right now I feel I don't have the desire, power or strength to keep on fighting this....but someday I hope to find the answer.

To follow up on meds comment, the first time I took them, things were pretty serious. Later I was prescribed them to help sort out serotonin for sleep issues, but after a few years, they didn't seem to make a difference so I stopped them. I still have plenty of anxiety. I have it whether I overeat or not, and life is better when I overeat seldom, so...

I was just reading a book on how to help obese women give up dieting. Now, the writer did promote snacking if meals were farther than 4 hours apart, but that's a negotiable in the beginning, I'd say. But three meals a day of a variety of food was the backbone.

Do you think you'll be able to take weight loss off your plate for awhile? It has never worked before making it a focus. Focus on the peace you'll feel eventually when you know you are feeding yourself reasonably consistently and regularly. You can work on content later. Take the long view!
