I've lost my way

Hi all i have been off and on slimming world for quite a while now more off really and I've lost my way. I preferred green plan as I'm vegetarian and now I'm just lost and overwhelmed by the weight i have too lose.
I had a baby in December i lost the pregnancy weight i gained within a week but since that point I've gained 16 pounds. My bmi is super high at 39.1 according too my weight this morning.
I get super obsessed by the plan and can't stop thinking about what I'm eating next i go hard at it for a moment then i fluff it off binge and go again so i lose a stone here then gain it again so I'm forever in this circle of losing gaining etc.
How do i make this work i prefer sw too other plans and calorie counting just gets plain hard quickly.
Advice please

Have you tried planning the entire week? Or do you work better by planning one day at a time?
What about making new recipes rather than sticking to what you know? I sometimes find that by sticking to what I like, I get bored and that's when I go off track.
And make sure you've got some treats in there too

I'm like you with obsessing over my weight loss plan. I think about it 24/7. It's very unhealthy. I haven't had a problem with binge eating (yet!), but I'm still very early on in my journey.

I've limited my food intake to 2-3 meals a day, making sure the calories total to under 2,000. I'm thinking of limiting it to 1,500. But I don't want to adopt a weight loss plan that I won't be able to sustain for the rest of my​ life.

I yearn for the day where it's 'normal' for me to just eat 2-3 meals a day, that it becomes a habit for me. I also need to put the scales away. I've been weighing myself about 10 times a day (and I'm not even exaggerating), I see my weight flactuate between meals, and for some irrational reason it makes me feel like crap. I need to limit it to maybe twice a week. Ugh.
