p.s. If you really want to change the name of your thread, you can PM one of the mods or admins. I saw Dee (Dee74) do this not long ago on behalf of another member.

That is very helpful indeed - thank you very much - I am unsure now - but - if there are others interested in the situation for a seventy year old compulsive overeater who is now back from a longish period of excess eating although not out and out repeated bingeing - I am hopeful they will join or perhaps point me in the direction of a similar thread.

I marvel at how once - I seriously thought about beginning to get back to living the 12 step way on a daily basis the urges to eat between meals and - especially at night - simply vanished.

I have a long way to go yet - but feel some definite progress - recognising that out of control eating was only one symptom of my addiction(s)

I am not really able to post at length as I need my concentration elsewhere right now - but I shall be interested in any response from others - I am five and a half days - I think - I am losing count - abstinent with food.

Post A little different today.

I need to get things done away from my computer today - so hope to post some more later or maybe even on another day.

All posters are welcome.

Thanks in advance for sharing your experience and also for responding to anything already written in this thread.

I smell Bubble & Squeak cooking for breakfast - I shall have a moderate portion!

Checking in with haste.

Sorry I am now on my own in this thread.

I will just record another day's three meals a day - nothing in between abstinence from food addictions - other things not going so well - but I was told a day of food abstinence is a good day and I believe that, what say you.... please?

Andrew, keep posting in other peoples' threads too. This subforum is very quiet and slow, so you may not get a lot of replies.

Really, SoberRecovery in general is a fairly slow-moving forum.

How about posting in the September Recovery Class? I'm sure you have a lot of Experience, Strength and Hope to share with newcomers.

Here's a link: https://www.soberrecovery.com/forums...-1-2019-a.html (Class of September Part 1 2019)


Well done on 3/No snacks.
