Always "hungry" Lately

Hi Everyone,
I am brand new here. Brand new to sharing and discussing my food addictions. I crave fatty, salty, sugary foods day in day out. I hate it. It's consuming me, and I'm afraid that eventually it will literally debilitate me. I am 41, I weigh 282 lbs and am 5'4. I have type 2diabetes, high blood pressure and high cholesterol. I want to lose at least 100 lbs. I feel so much guilt and shame over these numbers and the habits that have got me here. I am desperate to change this. My cravings have gotten worse and worse. I am always thinking about food. I eat a lot. My worst day is Saturday. I'm home alone on Saturday nights and I spend the day gathering supplies, provisions for the foods that I've been craving all week. My husband goes off to work for the night and I graze in front of the TV in secret. During the week, I aim for healthier habits, but end up snacking on junk when I don't feel satisfied. I am so embarrassed and ashamed that I have zero self control. I stumbled on an article that said these boards are helpful weather you discuss or just read the posts. I'm feeling like maybe getting some things off my chest without wondering if the person, people I'm telling is judging me will help. I appreciate the anonymity. I have a pint og Hagen Dazs hidden in the back of the freezer and I decided to write this post before I walk downstairs to get it. Maybe this is already helping, because I no longer want to go get the ice cream. Good night and thank you for being here?
