Hi!<br />
<br />
I was almost 260 pounds when I got pregnant. Doctors and nurses warned me about everything concerning my overweight. I was so happy nothing happened, our baby is very healthy and normal.<br />
<br />
I went to a psychologist to talk about my binge eating and she told me I should go see a psychiatrist, which I intend on doing in two weeks. My binge eating goes way back into my childhood, I have issues with my father, I've always had issues with my father... he never says anything nice about me, he even told me it was my fault I had cancer. Yeah... It's no wonder I need help... <br />
<br />
I strongly suggest you also get professional help, I've fought so long with this disorder and it really isn't easy to tackle when it's clearly linked to something in your past. <br />
<br />
Or at least give it a try... you never know, it might actually help you.
