Giving up is not an option, but I am tired of the typical diets. This time around, as I near my 50th year on the planet, I decided to try creating a life that I love with a tribe of people that are determined to be healthy and strong. My journey led me here. I am looking forward to focusing on friendships, support and a healthy lifestyle and getting rid of the "quick fix" mentality....

I constantly use this word to describe my state of mind, especially when I'm trying to watch what I eat. It's like...if I can't eat a plate of cheese fries or a cupcake, I become a nasty person. And I'm generally a bubbly, outgoing person. I completely rely on food and drink to...

I have a vision of my self in my head that is not what the mirror reflects. My excess poundage is beginning to cause me health problems. I know what to do to loose weight better than anyone. I just use food as my drug. Just like an alcoholic sneaks drinks, I sneak food to deAl with my daily stressors. When I eat, I go numb and disconnect.

The thoughts have often actually become PART of the cycle of overeating and thus actually make it more likely to repeat the overeating at another later time! Learning to interrupt that cycle at ANY point in the pattern helps weaken it. Be gentle with yourself while you learn to first accept them for what they are, old misguided habits, and then let them go. <BR> <BR> <link>www.huffingtonpost.com/2015/01/25/fo<BR>od-self-judgment_n...

I am new to this team as of yesterday. I am definitely an emotional eater. I believe it started during a time I was experiencing multiple miscarriages. I remember coming home after my last little one passed and just binging. I guess 1/2 punishing myself, 1/2 angry that after all of my efforts to keep my babies I lost them anyway. But . . . I lost my last little one in 2003. My problem has turned into eating anytime I'm upset or stressed. Unfortunately, I am stressed all the time. ...

I felt so awkward at both, where nobody really talked to me. When I tried to socialize, I felt like it was a sort of awkward attempt at conversation and people just sort of stared at me. <BR> <BR> I wish I knew what made it so hard to interact- even with my own family- at these parties. ...

I work full-time, and attend college, so I need to get better control of my eating habits. Snacking while doing homework is the worst, even if I'm not hungry. I have tried having healthy snacks nearby, but they are not the same, so I need to do away with snacking while doing homework altogether.

Dove milk chocolate is one of my most favorite things. I saw it, and instead of getting that panicky, anxious, must-eat-all feeling, I immediately checked in with my stomach. It said, "You did a good job giving us a mix of protein, fat, and carbs for breakfast, so we're good." And I walked away. <BR> <BR> And I didn't agonize about any of it. I don't have the words to express what a big deal this is.

My biggest issue is eating when not hungry. If I could control that I would have lost a lot of weight right now. I am pretty good at eating healthy and making the right choices. The worst times of the days for me are 3pm and at night when I go to bed. How do others deal with the urge to eat when not hungry?
