I eat when I am bored, I eat when I am tired, I eat when I am frustrated. I am constantly eating for reasons other than hunger. How do I stop? It's like it just slips under my radar and next thing I know, I have polished off a whole pie, or cookies or bag of potato chips.
Can anyone tell me if they have had true success with this drug? From a food addict stand point? Does it truly take away the pleasure you get from eating?
People always think that because you're overweight that means you overeat. My doctor has actually told me that I need to eat more, but I don't normally have an appetite.

The new year is just a couple of days away! It is time to think about what it is you want to different in your life. New Year's resolutions are easy to make but hard to keep, so instead of making specific resolutions, I am adopting key words for myself for the new year.
My words are OPTIMISM, CONFIDENCE, and FAITH. What words will you adopt?
So I can have a very fulfilling dinner and for some reason I wake up in the middle of the night super hungry, as if I had not had diner. Sometimes its like at 3 am and my stomach growls as if I have went way past my meal time. How can I control these feelings?
