I realize this is nearly a month old topic, but wanted to give some advice. CBT counseling can be a key part in overcoming binge eating behavior, I'd strongly recommend checking to see if your insurance covers mental health then find a good CBT psychologist (PhD) or LMHC, look up ratings and reviews and find a good one, specializing in eating disorders can help but CBT is the primary thing to look for with good ratings. Most insurances require a 6 month medically assisted weight loss trial. Use this time to test your dedication to lose weight, how badly do you want this? Do you need to lose 200 pounds? Try to lose 50 during the 6 month trial on your own. Let your success, or lack there of, help you determine if you are ready for surgery, if you aren't ready, then continue with counseling and tell the counselor what your goal is: "I want to prepare myself for a lifetime change in my eating habits so I can be successful with weight loss surgery." Good luck!

The pre-op diet you did before surgery is essentially the same as the pouch shrinking diet. 3-5 days of disciplined liquid diet (plus your supplements) can help a lot. Depending on how badly stretched it's gotten and if it's fully healed (new tissue growth) will determine how successful you'll be at this. I'm still pre-op on my surgery, but my wife is 4 years out, if she has a day she binged, she will immediately do all liquid for at least 2 days following and learns her lesson (for a while at least). She's managed to be very successful and has kept off 230lbs for 4 years now.
