Online therapy for eating disorders



Recommended Posts

I have always been thinking about trying online therapy for emotional eating. Anybody have any experiences to share? Positive or negative. Like Cognitive behavioral therapy?

Thanks in advance.

I went to a therapist for two years post WLS. Mixed results and she specializes in emotional and eating disorders. My advice, stay away from on line and get the benefit of in person therapy. Unfortunately, she retired and I cannot find a suitable replacement.

Does anyone know a good bariatric therapist anywhere in florida who may be willing to do telehealth appointments? I found one person so far and after two appointments I don’t feel like she is the right fit for me. Apparently they are few and far between in my area but I’m thinking post COVID maybe telehealth will work (someone said they have to be in the same state to bill insurance).

I don’t think being in same state affects most insurance.

Better Help and Talkspace both have counselors that specialize in eating disorders, primarily using CBT. Not counseling, but Overeaters Anonymous has a ton of online/virtual meeting options as well. No personal experience, I opted for in-person therapy for my own needs, but I do know folks who have been very happy with the online options.

      Has anyone had problems with the bariatric miltivitamin? I am struggling to get them down. If they don't make me throw up, they make me feel sick to my stomach!! Does anyone do something different when it comes to vitamins?

      What I've learned this last 2 weeks is consistent. That's I've been able to lose a pound here and there. This morning sucked it was 48 degrees but I am working on being consistent and sticking to it. Am perfectly sticking to it? Hell no but I'm working my ass off!

      A bit frustrated with my surgeon's office currently. Feeling like they are leaving everyone in the dark about when surgeries will start again. Told one thing, then told to do another. GRRR! I just want to be scheduled already! 😫🤬

      I'm losing more than weight. Ran labs to prep for my annual exam and since my pre-op labs in September (sleeved 10/13), I've lost:
      39pts off my Total Cholesterol including... 29pts off LDL 33pts off Triglycerides 18pts off fasting glucose & almost normal range A1C is lower on low end of "pre-diabetic" range My surgeon does labs at 6 months, so this is cool info to have in the meantime!
