What Is Wrong With Me?

What Is Wrong With Me?

I eat at most twice a day. But usually once. I don’t ray out very much. Maybe once a month. I quit snacks and sodas. The drs said my weight gain is due to the medication I take. Which is a lot. I guess I’m asking why I one month I’m 280. And then down to 269. How am I loading it when I’m not eating different or exercise.

Does Anyone Have Any Tried And True Tips Or Advice For Avoiding Nighttime Bingeing?

Does Anyone Have Any Tried And True Tips Or Advice For Avoiding Nighttime Bingeing?

I live alone with my child, and after I put her to bed at night I go into a mode where I eat nonstop. Sometimes I eat stuff in the house, other times I order in food for delivery. This habit is the biggest cause of my weight gain and I can’t seem to stop myself. I would love to learn from anyone who has successfully nipped this behavior in the bud!

Doctors/ NYC Brooklyn.

Doctors/ NYC Brooklyn.

Anyone in the NYC / Brooklyn area have a doctor that is kind, understanding and knowledgeable on obesity. WFPB would be a bonus .. I really don’t like my doctor he is no help and my anxiety hits all time highs when I have to go.
