Hello Everyone,
 
I'm needing advice, again.  I anyone battling this disorder? 
 
As a result of med changes, I am not eating at night like I was.  I am expecting pounds to come off quickly and it is not.  When I get on the scales and do not see loss, I have negative thoughts of ........heck I may as well eat.
 
I am afraid I am setting myself up for failure. I want to be thin yesterday and I am driving myself nuts over it.
 
Thanks

Hi there 1dayatatime ,

Firstly are you doing CBT as this will help banish the negative thoughts you have.

Here are some links for online CBT

It might help if you increase your daily activity - toning and cardio would be best if you want to lose weight and look slimmer.

Cut down on anything with lots of saturated fat and/or sugar in it.

Make sure you eat at least five fruits and vegetables each day and drink eight glasses of water each day.

Increase your fiber intake as high fiber foods are lower in calories and bulkier , making you feel fuller quicker.

Also eating slow energy releasing (i.e. low GI) foods can stave off hunger for longer.

It helps if you stick to strict meal times so your body gets used to eating the bulk of your food at these times , then you can snack on fruit/veg inbetween to tide you over.

Eating slower and chewing food for longer can also help you feel fuller quicker.

I hope this helps.

Take care ,

Smiler tongue

Hi 1dayatatime, I am glad to hear that your taking CBT classes.  Binge eating disorder is very serious and does need to be monitored closely by a doctor.  Most of this is learning healthly eating habits and trying to retrain your brain and mind to except a healthly self image.  I had a eating disorder in high school which was very difficult to over come and honestly still to this day I still fight those sneeky thoughts.  Keep up with the counseling and perhaps limit your time that you weigh yourself to like once a week or so.

I have a friend who has Binge eating disorder, and her Psychiatrist prescribed Topamax. She said she has been doing very well on it. I don't know a lot about it, but if you google it, you may be able to find out a little more about it.
