Am I greedy? Am I a compulsive over-eater? Advice please.

I have been overweight all my adult life. Not terribly so - I am 5' 6" and the most I have weighed is 12.5 stones and the lowest is 10 stone 2 - but enough that it is affecting my health. I am currently a size 16.

I think about food nearly all the time. When I wake up in the morning, I think about breakfast. After breakfast, I think about lunch. Then, after lunch, I start snacking. And snacking. And snacking. I put the children to bed at seven and then start on dinner. I even eat in secret... that is my biggest shame. When my dh puts the children to bed, I can often be found in the kitchen, scoffing a bit of cheese or chocolate. I feel sad to even admit that.

I do exercise every day, which I think is the only reason I am not much bigger.

I have a pretty active life, so I don't think it's boredom. Actually, I am never bored. I think I am just greedy.

Has anyone else been like this and managed to change?
