Just Can't Get Control Of My Eating

I am well aware of what it takes to lose weight but my eating is so out of control. I eat so much I feel as though I am being controlled by some unknown source. Every morning when I wake I am in the mind set that I am going to begin my diet. By 3:00pm I will have eaten everything known to man. I have tried everything from diet pills…weightloss programs, I even had the gastric bypass back in 2007. I have been overweight all my life. Before my surgery I weighed 343lbs. After surgery I got down to 200lbs. As of today I weigh 240lbs, I tell myself to just forget it I'll never be slim. This is just my life and to accept it, Know a lot people who has had weightloss surgery and the got slim and has kept the weight off. I don't know what is wrong with me. I tell myself to not give up and I try to diet only to fail again. Not to mention this puts me into a deep depression, so deep I can 't be a good mother to my kids nor can I be a good wife. I just don 't know what to do. I am just tired of this vicious cycle,

It's called "fear of success" don't think about it and you do the right thing

Personally I believe that you are stressing so much on losing that your stress level is making it hard for you to actually lose. With me, I make it fun and if I do fall short that day, I pick up the next day. It is definitely a struggle but when you reach your goal, you will feel accomplished. Hang in there!

Ahwww.. and hugs to you.. You are so right it seems that when I diet.. I gain weight, but when I am not trying I either lose a few pounds or I maintain. What is really going on!!

Hey, this is a vicious cycle. I've tried dieting many times, and failed too. Interesting though, once, when I wasn't dieting, I lost quite a few pounds. If this is not fun for you - i.e., you don't feel the passion of exercise and excitement of losing weight - don't diet then. At least for a week or so. Tell yourself - now I'm having fun. Depression is not a price worth paying for anything. Depression is such a *****.<br />
