I have a really huge problem. Whenever I cheat on a diet, I end up binging. So instead of just eating 1 piece of cake, I end up eating the whole thing. I get so discouraged about the first piece of cake, so I basically just give up. This is why I can never stick to a diet.
Do you have certain times of the day when the binge is most likely? If so, move your meal timings around a bit so that you are eating, or recently fed at that time. There is no requirement to eat at 'conventional' times, and shifting things about is often all that is needed to get things under control

My binging usually happens at night when I should be finished eating for the day. I know I should not be eating less than three hours before bed.

So eat your main meal of the day at 8 pm

Lizzy I understand the issue(( Well probably your husband is right( I aks my friends and family eat junk/forbidden food at least not in front of me!;-) So my mom eat cakes in another room)) and she tries to buy not the whole cake (she can not eat as much), but just few pieces only for herself! So she goes to another room, finish the cake and we both are safe;-))

It seems like you have a lot of support. My husband insists that he is only helping me. He feels that I have to be able to deal with the temptation or I will never be able to maintain a healthy weight.

First off, get rid of the guilt. That's one of the biggest problems people have in dieting, and plenty of studies show that worry prevents diet success. You're going to have days where you don't stick to it, so allow those to happen and don't feel bad.

Don't try to cut things out all at once. Going cold turkey will almost certainly lead to bingeing. Much better to gradually cut down to half till that feels normal, then half again etc. And don't cut everything at once either. Concentrate on one or two things to reduce at a time.

It's difficult when your situation means your family don't need to be on the same diet. It's not just about temptation, it's sharing in what your family are enjoying, and feeling part of the family. Maybe you can challenge your husband to see if he can match you for a week or a month, so that he understands it better.
