In GOD We Trust Choose To Lose "If you are going to win any battle you have to do one thing. You have to make the mind run the body. Never let the body let the body tell the mind what to do. The body will always give up. It is always tired in the morning, noon and night. But the body is never tired if the mind is not tired." -General George S Patton, U.S.Army, 1912 Olympian
Welcome, HYARDLEY6 ! There's no question that overeating can be a response to a lot of different things -- stress, boredom, depression, anger, a substitute for something else that is missing in our lives... and before we can really deal with the weight we have to find some way to deal with the other things. Stress has been a big factor for me to learn to deal with differently, and I've found that exercise is making a good substitute -- as are posting here on the message boards and in my blog and reading other members' posts and blogs.
Best wishes for success in achieving your goals -- I hope we'll be "seeing" you here often!
