In 2006 I started a "new eating plan" 2 days after my mother's funeral. I had to because my weight was pulling on my spine causing severe pain. It took me a year and half to lose 136 lbs. In Oct 2007, I became very anxious, nervous, depressed, and stressed. I think it was because I no longer had my mom around (she was my best friend) and I was no longer overeating (food also being my best friend). I lost the most important things in my life. I could not handle all the emotions that were coming up. I thought I was going to "break". I went to the doctor and she put me on Effexor. That did help get myself in somewhat control however I started overeating again. Little by little I kept adding more and more food. Now I have gained about 30 -40 lbs (not sure because I won't weigh) and my eating is full blown out of control. I can't seem to stop. I realize that I am a food addict. I also realize that losing weight was the easy part....trying to stop being an addict is the hard part. I cried today because it just seems completely hopeless. I don't know how to cure emotional eating.
