Hi there ladies,
This is my first post on here.
I am sat in the car park to my counsellor and on the drive here have just scoffed 3 reeces cups and a bag of jelly sweets.
I don't really know where my head is at with food at all anymore...:'(
Will give more details later as just about to go back in.
Thanks. X

Thank you, I am a binge eater and am worse than ever - totally messed my own head up with all the conflicting info. In every other area of my life I am so "on it" and sorted but I let myself down with eating...
Counselling took a bit of a different route and ended up discussing my 19 month old daughter waking regularly in the night (which equals me being shattered) and she has suggested getting rid of her dummy (as she is calling me to put it back in). I have wanted to for ages but my hub says I am being cruel - just got home and explained and he has basically said do what I like but it is unfair on her as she doesn't understand :'( it is unfair on me as I am constantly shattered...The counsellor thinks being tired makes a big difference to how I'm feeling and my food choices and I think she is right.
Thanks for replying to me. X

BE you are right about the dummy in your situation. It is hard when a DP/DH gives their unhelpful opinions, especially when they base them on something so obviously wrong (it isn't cruel to wean your baby off using a dummy at a sensible age. It is one of the first steps in parenting where you have to kindly give the child the right direction to go, even when the child doesn't want to. Doing this from an early age helps children prepare for the next steps of life as they grow up and makes them happier and more resilient. I'll stop there, but I've had years of that kind of crap from DH's family. Trust your own instincts on it, you are the mum!)

I know I barely function when sleep deprived. Let us know how it all goes!

Ah, thank you for your reply! Well, my little girl was at the childminders today (where she doesn't have her dummy), then dinner at my in-laws whilst myself and hub went to a school info evening so didn't get home until their bedtime - I was dreading it tbh but it wasn't too bad at all - she kept asking and I calmly replied that I couldn't find any, nevermind!! Well, it took about 20 mins to settle her and she is zonked now!!! I couldn't believe it...Don't think I will be so lucky in the night!! Xxx
