I am also an emotional eater and had another aha moment when I realised that I associate food with being happy and secure.

My Program:
Done with diets - I'm on a permanent lifestyle change. I am eating healthy foods most of the time - I'm no saint! But I am tracking everthing daily. I am starting to exercise little by little - need to strengthen my muscles to support my joints and reduce the lower back pain when I walk. The chair exercises are brilliant! I have started to use the visualisation techniques I read about on here.

Personal Information:
I live in Cheshire in the UK.

Other Information:
I like to read and make cards and explore new places..

It went off without incident, thankfully. She made many enemies in mining communities and it was feared something would "kick off"

I personally think it should have been a simple service with a memorial at a later date- although having said that, security costs for that would have been exorbitant!

Love the advice and am grateful to you for leaving it in your response to my blog. Plainly a change of attitude is needed and as I know you live by your words Iíll be trying to change. As you say Ďdietingí is just not the way to look at it and I need to remember that.
Good luck with the mojo Ė and enjoy the fruit and veggies. Iím not much affected by the winter weather but I know SO many people who find everything so much harder going when itís damp and gloomy. Hopefully itíll all improve soon . . .??? emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon

Thank you for taking the time to respond to the thread regarding my "female" issue. Having you share your own experience and knowing that everything turned out fine, is truly comforting. Thank you for your support and kindness. I can't express enough how much I appreciate it.
