Today I am really struggling with why it is so hard to lose weight and so easy to gain. It feels as if I have one slip up I will gain back what I lost and then I start over. I know this is a lifestyle change I am doing and wanting to do. I want to feel better(emotionally). I want to put on my jeans and feel great ( which I had started to do prior to the holidays) but now I am back to being miserable. Nothing to wear and I refuse to buy larger clothing. So instead of staying down I am going to focus on the positive and see how I can put my self back on the right track. I feel stronger during my workouts and family life has gotten better since I started to eat "normal" again. Maybe look--no definitely look into why I want to eat at night what comfort am I missing--there is something missing--because I should not want to eat --I had ate plenty of food. --re evaluate my food I eat t--and get way more water in. I can do this I want to d this and most importantly I want to do it for me--No one else seems to care how I look they like me for me so this is for me--lose the weight and take my child to a rip course he would love and i would feel more comfortable doing it being smaller--this time next year I want to be planning a great outing for my family and not having my self consciousness due to being over weight get in the way. I really believe I can do this and that is my first Great step!

    Hi, I have the same problem but I eat because hubby is eating and it makes me want to join him.. It is the only activity which we share. So, in spite of the fact that he has lost and gained over and over again, I must tread my own course toward where I actually want to end up.... Keep in touch with your local team. Maria

    You said it re evaluate before you eat why you want to eat and the distraction will help keep you out the kitchen. Also maybe you're not tired try to make sure your days ate full so bedtime will be much needed rest
    You can do....you afe on the right track

    night time eating may not be comfort, but boredom, which builds into a habit. Try an herbal tea - it may also help you relax before bed. I used to go for a glass of wine every night. When I realized that and knew it's not what I wanted - I started on tea and found the same satisfaction - I was just looking for something to do. Not saying I don't have a glass of wine once in a while. A more recent change for me is keeping busy until 7 or 8p (little projects i want to do). Less time just vegging on the couch. Also makes me feel emotionally better.

    Looks like your all over the place emotionally and physically. I am in the same boat! The truth is ...there is no truth, we self sabotage ourselves because its easy to do. Simply said, we are comfortable where we are at and changes dont come easy. I am all about losing weight. I happen to know that everyone on this website is here to lose weight, laugh! so dont get discouraged change one thing at a time, take baby steps, dont try to lose 50 lbs by next month ( joke) maybe the baby steps we take by working this into a new routine will get us both to that dream of being thin, most of all healthy. my advice if you dont mind it...DONT GIVE IN AND GIVE UP

    all those feelings you just described .........its something all of us have been through and some of us are still on with.
    we are all in this together.

    after spending years of bad eating habits and ignoring our body and "us" its surely going to be hard to change things overnight.but what you need to know is, WE CAN!!!
    all the difference comes from what we do DO!
    having slip ups are really common.please dont beat up urself for that.just try to get back on track the very next hour.
    there are soo many wonderful people who time and again have proved losing weight isnt that herculean a task.So can you!!! trust me on this!!
