But I know that when I eat despite not being hungry, it is to fill some kind of emptiness or hole. Usually it happens at home, when I have a moment of nothing to do. Being a full time working mom of twin toddlers, I don't have many of those moment, but when I do I 'reward' myself with food. So, does that sound like an emotional eater?

So... Hi! My name is Shelley and even though my UN is MrsGroucho I'm not usually grouchy. It's just a little joke about my very long, very Polish last name.

It's a genius idea and, as I'm a proponent, which is not always the same as a faithful practitioner, of honesty in tracking as a learning tool and mindfulness reminder, thought I'd mention it here. Called "emotional eating" or what you will, it can be an aid to the effort. I was in the habit of listing such things under "snacks," but a distinct category will be more useful to me when I resume sanity.

I'm Laura and I had some success with SP in the past but I fell off the wagon when I quit my job, moved across country, became a stay at home mom and had my second (and last) baby. The stress of having an infant has proved to me that I am an emotional eater and I'm glad I found this team. I feel like the majority of my weight struggles are tied to my emotional eating habits. I'd love to make new friends in this group and find resources on how to battle this issue. Thanks!

I have been on SP for a few years off and on. Just recently realized I am an emotional eater. Sounds silly, I know. But I did just now figure that part out. It makes sense. I am trying to stop myself from eating so much by asking "Why do I want to eat?" versus "WHAT do I want to eat?" Please visit my SP.

A few months ago I started a weight loss program that had me weigh myself once per week. The reason I started weight loss a few months ago and basically have lost two pounds is because once things start working out for me, I start to relax. OR, if I have a bad day or a bad week, I give up. <BR> <BR> So now I’m wondering, is part of the reason I keep get...

I have had success with weight loss with other teams, but once the "glamour" wears off so does my "willpower". I notice I eat more when I am feeling uncomfortable about myself. For example, if my friend and I are speaking on the phone and it is an opinion type thing I am grabbing food. I had lost a lot of weight, but it is sneaking back on and I need help to stay on track.

My Name is Theresa I am new to the team and Spark people so I am not sure I am posting this right. I love food and am an emotional eater. Growing up me and my mom would eat pies together each eating our own, go out to fast food etc. I have continued that pattern though my adult life. I eat unhealthy and like about it later. I look forward to what I can learn from all of you.

I have been a binge eater and emotional eater for the last 10 years. The emotional toll has been debilitating, but it has also damaged my liver. I have had some success with giving up dieting and looking into the psychological reasons for my overeating. It is a long slow process. I am hoping to find some wisdom and support here as I continue on my journey to wellness.

My commitment to a healthy lifestyle definitely was paying off. I felt happy and energized... I actually felt 'off' or sluggish if I missed a work out. Then everything started to change slowly. New relationship... new home new routines lead me to slowly drift away from taking care of myself. I managed to only gain a few pound here and there and then yo yoing began. <BR> <BR> But this year.. well it's been a rough winter.... ...
