Yes, we need that DietBet game for people who have reached their goal or are close to it. When I'm in a game, I have more will power.

I'm awful about binge eating and definitely understand where you're coming from. What I'm trying to do is to plan (I use MFP) yumminess into each day - ie: I have a brownie with lunch most days, I eat cheese and wine during sunset on our days off (but I also take fruit and veggies to go with it), etc. If I can find a healthier version (FiberOne Brownie, for example), I'll go for that. That way I don't feel totally deprived.

I've also given myself days here and there where I tell myself I can eat whatever I want. And I do end up eating more than I should, but not as much as I used to, as I know I'm allowing myself to do this and I know how much havoc it can cause the scale. I think 'allowing' it gives one more sense of control, which helps prevent a true binge, when I feel totally out of control.

It's tough and there's a learning curve to figure out what works best and to find that happy middle ground. I'm still trying to figure it out. Best of luck to you!

I need to restart as well. I've been having some symptoms that I suspect could be liver related and I'm scared, haven't been to the doctor yet. :/
I've also had two family deaths in less than a year and yeah, it throws you off-track. Thanks for posting this, it always helps to hear other people's stories.
