When I was younger I was great when I was stressed, I would just not eat much. But now that I'm in my 40's when I'm stressed I have found myself to eat the wrong things when I am stressed. So I have decided if I'm stressed just eat one little square of chocolate and use yoga as my workout. The yoga seems to help. I just got to tell myself don't let the stress take over me because I will just have to start over again.

If your tried of starting over, stop giving up!

Exercise is a big obstacle for me because I hate it. I have a treadmill, elliptical, and stationary bike and tons of videos. I can't make myself do any of them. I don't like going for walks. Perhaps if I had someone to go with I might but don't like going alone. I spend the day telling myself today I will exercise, but it doesn't seem to happen. I would lose weight if I would exercise, I have done it before. I lose all control of my eating if I get to tired so I try to get enough sleep so that doesn't happen, I have some control there. I tend to be an emotional eater, but I can keep on top of that for the most part, Exercise, I stand no chance

One obstacle that hasn't been mentioned yet and I struggle with... exhaustion. I have fibromyalgia and simply run out of steam easily; in turn this can undermine my normally disciplined approach to exercise and lead to emotional eating.

So what I am planning to do this year may be counter-intuitive but I will be working on being less stringent with my exercise plan. I will working on incorporating more low-impact exercises like walking. A half-hour walk may burn 1/2 the calories of half-hour on the elliptical, but if I can do that most days of the week I'll burn more than if I've done the elliptical no days of the week!

I'll also be working on more balance in my life so I (hopefully) don't get as run down as quickly. With some regrets I stopped a volunteer commitment I have had on Saturday mornings for the previous 3 years. Much as I want to do it, it chews into time that I need to rest & recharge, and I realize I just can't do that every weekend.

They are all obstacles for me. For those of you that have low blood sugar at dinner time, I make portion sized veggie bags, with things like baby carrot , cucumbers, green pepper slices. While I make dinner I munch on my veggies, taking the edge off my hunger, and sneaking in an extra serving of veggies at the same time.

PAULAGRIFFITH75....love the term 'lack of preparation'
I've gotten into cooking in batches and then storing them in portions. Whether its brown rice, baked potato, baked sweet potato, chicken, bags of frozen veggies. Take 5 minutes to throw a few things together, shove it in the microwave. ....When you do things that way, it's hassle free. change into my comfy cloths and it's done.

A little trick that I learned a long time ago is to eat an apple on the way home from work. It takes a little while to eat because you actually have to chew it, rather than inhale it. My commute is only about 15 min, and if I eat it when I get in my car, by the time I get home, the crazy low blood sugar feeling is going away. I can then prepare dinner without being in such a hurry to eat.

I am beginning to see that I have a "lack of preparation" obstacle. Yesterday I came home from work hungry, and there weren't any readily available healthy snacks to grab to balance out the blood sugar. This is a really uncomfortable state...so I need so have some grab it food. Any suggestions? What works for you? I was thinking maybe some hummus and pita chips--it does not take a lot of this to make me full--I'm thinking because it is fiber? Yogurt is also good--maybe using it as a vegie dip with celery and carrots? A protein smoothie might also work--something quick and easy. I also come home tired. I ended up eating to slices of Sara Lee 45 calorie bread with a thin layer of peanut butter, and that worked. Thank goodness daughter fixed a good, healthy dinner. emoticon

Stress eating by far. There's just something about sweet, crunchy, salty junk food that **feels** like it makes the stress go away. I am exercising quite a bit more now, which has been quite an effective stress reliever, so hopefully I can break this stress-munching habit.

Emotional eating is also downfall and sabatoge for me. My husband is a critical person and I am sensitive to criticism. Not always a great match. One of the things I do to help me with stress is attending a Park district yoga class once a week. Its so great. I feel like a million bucks afterward. I should do it more often, but have difficulty finding a class that is right for me. I encourage Sunshine65 to find a yoga dvd for people over 50. It is a more gentle style yoga and has a meditative benefits. I liked the comment that "death is the end of opportunites." We must give ourselves the power to find some joy in this life, not give our power away to somebody else who chooses to be unhappy. I already feel better just righting this post! Have a joyful day everyone.

Emotional eating for me. Sunshine65, I am so sorry for your situation. For the exercise piece, When I can't fit in other exercise, I walk or dance in front of the t.v. set -- I'm still watching shows at night to relax after work, but I'm getting in some exercise while I'm doing it. Start small with just 10 minutes a day and it will become a habit.

FOOD!!! I vow to make better (healthier) choices throughout 2014 - expecially at night. In 2013, I continued my bad habit of snacking too much at night. Need to eat a healthy snack and then STOP and do something else....!!!

I would have said stress eating but I think right now my biggest issue is that I am eating out of habit an not health. This is terribly depressing to admit to but I know that I just need to recommit to the whole program.

Stress leads me to emotional eating. Fear of failing-seeing positive results and then sabotaging my good efforts. I am learning how to deal with this and get beyond.

Sunshine 65, I also do not like to or want to exercise. I also think it is connected to the emotional eating, but I do not think it is not because I don't want to get healthy. I think it is that I allow the stress to hold me back. I use all the excuses you listed, but mostly I am tired. I am sorry your husband is sick and volatile...my brother is the same way, and so was my dad for that matter. It is a difficult situation, but death is no answer...it is the end of all opportunities. I think it is important for you to make time for your health and don't feel guilty, and maybe begin with some meditation. Exercise is not the only thing you can do to be a better you. You husband will need to take a back seat for 1/2-to a full hour so that you can give your body and mind some healing time. I have had to talk to someone to help manage some of my stress, and I highly recommend that, too. Sending prayers your way....

Oh, it's definitely exercise! I know that OXYCISE! is a wonderful exercise that only takes 15 minutes a day...do you think I can fit it in? Oh, no, I have so many other important things to do...I am too tired...I forgot...no way am I going to get up at 4:45 so I can do it first thing...after work I am too tired...,y husband is mad at me again and I am feeling sorry for myself... ? Sp what is the REAL reason? Good question. I think, if I were honest, I don't really want to get healthy. What? I want to get away from this volatile, sick husbanfd who drains me, and death is the only way. Is that the truth? O M G! help!

Hi, My biggest obstacle is exercise. Now that it's cold the only thing I can do is the treadmill. I do have a reader that I put there, but right now the book I'm reading is boring. I have gained lately and have been lax on exercise. I haven't been on this board before but it hits home!

Emotional eating: good or bad emotions are both considered. And it still irks me that I will a donut or brownie like I'll never see another one in my entire life. So some bad habits from a deprived childhood can still surface after more than 3 decades out of the parental home...

I am an emotional eater of 35 years now and haven't been able to break the habbit,addiction what ever you want to call it! I started eating because I was in a abusive and physical marriage and I thought it would end when I divorced many years ago but it didn't. I have been as high as 250 lbs and as low as 129 lbs,I am always having to watch my wt and the older I get the more tired I become!!! I don't have a lot to loose to people but to me it is! Looking for some other people that struggle with the emotional eating as well that we can give each other support and motivate one another and etc.

All things are possible!

I don't know that to do, i don't feel motivated. I am always trying to look for food, and what i eat is like chocolates, bread (I LOVE BREAD).

And to be honest i think of food the whole day :( this holiday season has been awful for me as i had to work from home and my gym has been closed since Dec 23rd, it opens until next monday.

But i don't like walking or going out of my house, i had a very very stressful year at work so i just want to do is rest.

What can I do?

If I get stressed out, upset about something or just plain bored, I reach out for food. My go to foods to snack on pork rinds (they are low carb and some are gluten free), pickles (horrible in the salt department) and cheese. I eat so much cheese that my husband calls me a rat. I like to exercise but it is hard to find the motivation to do so. I have a torn up knee and arthritis and am in pain 24/7 so that makes it hard to want to exercise. I have started pain management and was put on a fentynal patch so maybe that will give me the motivation that I need.

Emotional eating is a BIG problem for me. When I was growing up, every time I got sick (which was often), my mom would buy and/or cook comfort food just for me. It was awfully sweet of her, but it created a pattern I often fall back on. I have used hypnosis before to help with this problem and it did help. I am thinking about looking for an mp3 download for hypnosis that I can load to my phone. I have not looked for this so I do not know if any exists, but it would make it really available to use when I need to use it--even at work. If I find something, I will repost to this thread. Blessings to you all...

If I do a good job with exercise, I can more easily control my eating because 1) exercise causes a emotionally good feeling and 2) I don't want to "waste" my exercise efforts by ruining them with overeating. In other words, it is easier to control my eating when I am exercising regularly.

Hmmm. I'm thinking Food and emotional eating are pretty much the same in my book. I tend to eat my emotions, and I'm pretty emotional. I can't seem to develop a healthy relationship with food, but I'm trying. I found a nice blog that talks about everything from finance to daily living, and one of the entries was about a 365 day meal plan (http://www.thecentsiblelife.com/2012/01/365-day-meal-plan/) I have gotten remotivated to master my food addiction...too bad we can't just go "cold turkey" with food like one might with other "drugs." emoticon

I think I'll win if I stay focused without obsessing. This year I'm trying to be my own BFF (Balanced, Fit, and Focused), which can be a challenge with ADHD and OCD.

It is absolutely learning to handle my emotions in a different way then eating
through them. When I'm depressed I eat. When I'm mad, I eat. Even when I'm happy I eat.
Food has been a best friend. I need a different one:)

My biggest obstacles is getting up and exercising. I have a stationary bike, bands and the big ball. My problem is just moving and getting motivated. I keep a very clean house, read alot, and it's cold outside so I don't wanna walk. Once I get up and exercise I feel better about myself it's just doing it. I need to EXERCISE

You can't do what you don't try.

Food and emotional eating. It's become easier since I became a vegan and gave up processed foods. No more cookies, chips or other junk in my house!

My biggest obstacle is food. I love food. I love the textures, spices, and how food brings people together. I've traveled the world and have not found a food I don't like. So that is my biggest challenge to weight loss. I've pretty much always exercised consistently and I'm not much of an emotional eater. Actually when I'm stressed I tend to eat less so yep, food is the issue.

Long commute = little time to exercise during the week. Plus I'm exhausted when I get home.

However: living with my mother is the biggest obstacle. She fries everything. I did better before I relocated to help out. I wasn't doing GREAT, but I've gained 30 - 40 pounds in the last 18 months.

Consistent exercise. I can get very into exercising but then I fall off track and don't get back on for weeks. I'm recommitting to the 10 minutes every day concept.

Food and Emotional Eating. I wish exercise alone could make me lose weight because I love to exercise.
