    Hello everyone. My name's spangles and I've joined on recommendation from a few friends who have found this site invaluable in their weightloss journeys.

    I'm a UK size 24 sufferer of Binge Eating Disorder and i'm about to commence a VLCD in order to become eligible for fertility treatment. I'm 37, and a secondary school drama teacher from South London.

    Thanks all.

    emzy2909 - the vlcd thing is really a last resort for me. A lifetime of dieting has left me very messed up, like I have an abusive relationship with food. And as you would advise anyone in an abusive relationship, the best option is to get the hell away from it altogether. On a VLCD you have powders (soups/shakes) ofr the total of your nutrition: you don't have to make any choices about food at all, beyond choosing to stay on the diet. That appeals to me, but it's extreme and isn't for everyone.

    I should also say, I'm planning on finding a psychotherapist to help me before i have to re-engage with food at the end of the process.
