A date is better really than always tomorrow. And a plan. "Monday the 15th September I start my new diet and exercise plan. I can have a day off exercising each Tuesday, I can have up to 500 extra calories on a Saturday.". A plan with built in easy days stops you from cheating. If one day you can have a portion of nice ice cream, or drinks with friends without guilt, if you do end up eating a pint of ice cream, it's just one day, not a reason to give up.
Planing on calorie intake and exercise can be very difficult, most people give up on that route. Though, it shows results the fastest. Just monitor yourself. Don't eat because you are bored eat because you're hungry, and only eat what you need. Also, eating light amounts of food throughout the day speeds up your metabolism. I like to eat lightly throughout the day and exercise once or twice a week, I would exercise more, but I don't have that much time. Either way you choose, the important part is that you want to lose weight, and you're actually taking steps towards that. Don't give up!
Sometimes it's a lot harder than "just eat healthy and exercise!!" Reading this makes me wonder if OP has an eating disorder. Binge eating is a mental illness that usually requires both therapy and doctors to manage weight loss and cholesterol levels and so on.. Even if I'm reading too much into this OP, I hope you can lose weight fairly easily & you're able to keep it off.
I agree with #29. If I want a cookie, I eat one. I just don't buy junk food at the grocery store anymore. So I have to go out and buy a cookie (not a package of cookies) when I want it. It's a good deterrent, 6 months in I weigh 25 pounds less with only a moderate change in diet. It's sustainable.
Update: I have started the plan today, and it's been a great workout and a good meal plan so far. Thanks for the support and laughs!
