Well said! Have you tried Overeaters Anonymous? I’m not suggesting it because it worked for me — it didn’t. I’m a non-spiritual atheist & it’s a spiritual program, based on principles of Alcoholics Anonymous. But it works for some. What I loved about it, what I will always love about it, is you will find yourself in a room where everyone, EVERY SINGLE SOUL, knows exactly where you have been. Your pain, your struggle, is their pain & their struggle. This amazing sense of belonging is priceless. I go sometimes just to sit in on meeting to rest my soul (the only supernatural thing I do believe in). Just a thought.
