It's difficult to stay focused when that [insert food of choice here] is calling your name, right? One thing I've found to be true is you can't just stop unhealthy eating without replacing it with a new activity. I like to crochet and knit. It keeps my hands and my brain busy so not only am I not thinking about food, but my hands are busy also. Do you have any hobbies that don't lend themselves to eating at the same time? Can you take a walk when you start to feel an urge to eat something unhealthy?
Hang in there. You *can* do this.

It has been very difficult having the passion and motivation to lose these 66 lbs. My family that I live with do not eat very healthy at all and it has become an issue. I have an addiction to food and it does not seem to matter to them. My problem is that if it is around me, I will eat it whether I am hungry or not. I do use it as a coping mechanism for my anxiety. I really need someone I can talk to to be there for me when I feel like caving in. I am just starting to become serious about losing 66 lbs so I can be down to my weight before I had my daughter 2 years ago. Right now I am 211lbs and I want to get down to 180lbs by Dec 31 2012, and 145lbs by May 2013. I want to feel good about my body for the first time in a very long time. The ironic thing is, I eat because I'm sad, and I am sad because of my weight. Isn't it funny how those things happen...
