How Do I Stop Emotional Eating?
A MyObesityTeam Member asked a question 💭

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.

A MyObesityTeam Member asked a question 💭

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?

A MyObesityTeam Member

I just started taking the two drugs. It's been about 4 days. The naltrexone starts working almost immediately. I find myself not thinking about food nearly as much as I used to. I also no longer seem… read more

Hi Everyone! Is There Anybody Out There (like Me) Who Wants To Have More Support In Their Weight Loss Struggles?
A MyObesityTeam Member asked a question 💭

What would you think of doing a daily check in (or perhaps a weekly one, at least initially)?
This would give us the opportunity to share our ups and downs and give each other encouragement.

I think this is a great idea...I feel very alone...

A MyObesityTeam Member asked a question 💭

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. I need meal suggestions to help increase my food intake. What can I do? Eating when I'm not hungry makes me nauseous, and my meds suggest I eat.

I like the protein cheese, nut snacks are good for that. wheni worked i would set an alarm for 2-3 hours and eat one of the small snacks. it helps stay off the blood sugar hills and vally's.

Those Of You Who Weigh 300 Pounds Or More, How Often Do You Get Fat-shamed?
A MyObesityTeam Member asked a question 💭

Fat-shaming is very damaging and its perpetrators tend to be sadistic. What we need to know is who does it and why they do it. In motives we can discern actions, your story can help put an end to it. Be brave.

Any Advice On Just Getting Started
A MyObesityTeam Member asked a question 💭

I am having a hard time just finding the energy and motivation to even start anything. I know what I need to do, i make the plan to do it but then just can't bring myself to get moving. It's like I talk myself out of it before I even get started.

How Do You Handle A Spouse (family Member, Friend) Who Is Too Supportive And Understanding?
A MyObesityTeam Member asked a question 💭

My husband always tells me that I look great and that he loves me no matter what. Tough problem, right? :-) But I don't feel great. I felt great when I was 40 lbs lighter. I accept what he says and let it sway me to act in a way that is not in my best interests - going out to eat, eating what I know I shouldn't, drinking, not exercising. I know I wouldn't want him to think less of me or love me less because of my weight. I just want to know how to not use it as an allowance or excuse for… read more

A MyObesityTeam Member

I truly understand that feeling, because my boo is like that as well. I feel the same way. I'm not happy with my life because of my weight issues.

Nutrition Support
A MyObesityTeam Member asked a question 💭

Just joined in hope of some support and good information. Is there anywhere on this site that provides nutrition information? Like a suggested healthy meal planner or something?

A MyObesityTeam Member

Did you find a nutrition guide that you follow? That's my problem. I need to have something laid out for me that uses real foods that are grown in my area. Something that I can fix at home and… read more
