Ok, so Im so glad I found this website with others who can relate to what I'm going through. However, I dont think my compulsive eating is completely emotional. Yes when i'm emotional I eat but my biggest problem is when I get one thing, or food on my mind, it begins to take control of my thoughts and I'll do whatever I can to somehow get it. For example, I wasnt hungry tonight and we had some rainbow chip icing in the cabinet, and I was watching t.v and all of a sudden I had the craving for that icing and I couldnt stop myself from getting it. As I was finished up the last few bites I tried to stop myself but I couldnt. Does anybody else feel like this. Once they get something on their mind, there is no changing it? like, if you are going home and you tell yourself you are going to eat cuz there is cake in the house, then there is no way to change you mind. Youre set on eating that cake. I dont know if that made any sense, I was Just wondering if anyone can relate.

This test went HORRIBLY. They were about 20 seconds or so into...
