Welcome, Kristy! Celebrate pets and all they do for us. Turning away from emotional eating means finding comfort in things other than food. Pets are definitely comfort. For me a warm bath sometimes with bubbles or aromatherapy is very good. Herbal tea is a good comfort. Sometimes a big bowl of yellow squash or low cal treat is okay, even if it is a bit of emotional eating it won't show up much on the scale. Calling a friend or going for a walk with a friend can be very helpful.

Glad you have joined us. -Marsha

Hi! My name is Kristy. I am 36 years old and share my apartment with a 7 month old boxer and 16 year old cat. I am an assistant manager at the local Family Dollar store. I am working hard at maintaining, but getting toned and focusing more on my strength and weights.

My partner of 10 years left recently, so I am dealing with a lot of stress and trying not to emotional eat. My pets have been a real help with this.

I was on SP under a different name and left due to personal issues, but now am back. I am working real hard toward a fitness degree and hoping I will be able to start that in the next few months.

I guess that's it for now.
