And I've put on 2 bloody stone!!
24 bloody lbs Sad

I'm 5ft 7 and weigh 15st.

At my lightest (which was still overweight) I was 13.1

I suffer with B.E.D and have been packing away 3000-4000 a day for the last 8 months so 2st isn't actually that bad but I can't fit into my clothes and can't afford new ones.

I hate what I see in the mirror.

I feel for you. Low carbing/ditching sugar stopped me overeating. Good luck.

I've managed to stop the bingeing today.

However I've noticed what I am eating is high in calories as well as carbs.

I am going to slowly tweak my diet over the next few weeks so it's not such a shock to my system and I end up bingeing again.

I was considering slowly introducing HUEL (meal replacement) & using that exclusively for a month to kick start my weight loss as I tend to stick to it much more when I see progress

Sounds like a good plan! Try and get some exercise in too and that should help you see some results sooner.

May I ask how you ditched sugar @OohOohMrPeevly ? Did you just do it, it did you follow a plan?

Good luck @GetInMyNelly, I've got 2 stone to lose to, I've had a really stressful past 12 months and been bingeing and not doing enough exercise.

I had to do it really as I kept eating all the chocolate biscuits I'd bought for the kids and then when they complained I'd buy them again and then eat them all again!
It's hard in some ways but not as hard as I thought. You have to go through a couple of days of headaches (I just took nurofen) and I ate lots or raspberries when I had a sugar craving. Although raspberries are lovely you can't really binge on them so I weaned myself off sugar that way. Once I'd got over the cravings it was easy and I just never have any now.
