I've been struggling with a binge eating disorder ever since I could remember. My home that I grew up in wasn't the easiest. My father's an alcoholic and has a gambling addiction, my mother is bedridden from severe depression and my brother is mentally disabled has some behavior issues. I looked for comfort in food (mostly sweets and fast food) at thirteen and that's where my eating addiction began. I am now 23.
I didn't think I had a problems until my eating disorder took a very wrong turn for the worst this year and I gained nearly forty pounds after I bought my clearance wedding dress in July. Even though I have an entire year to lose that weight and I am finally getting my eating habits under control (My fiance and I both have eating disorders and will be going to therapy today), I am still ashamed I went from 190 to 230 (I am 6'3 in height and the dress is a size fourteen...)
I am not looking for pity, but advice on how to safety lose weight and overcome my sugar addiction.
