I've known for 26 years that emotional eating was my problem, but I think I had to go through some other experiences in which I showed some strength of character to be ready 1) to look more carefully at this issue, and then 2)to do something! So you are ahead of the game!
Not to sell the online program short, but it is not a guarantee that you will work the program. I signed up before I finished the book and then found that just about every exercise from the program is in there. It's just a matter of whether you will put your all into it. I did not at that time, even though I had shelled out the money! I doubt you'd go more slowly online, unless you really think having forms to fill out instead of typing up in Word documents or handwriting will be more motivating. I'd suggest you try to use this board and post something on the threads for each chapter as you go through. You are bound to have thoughts as you go. Post 'em! If you want to do exercises, jump ahead to chapters that have them, if you like. It will revive all of us for you to do that! You don't have to post the exercises themselves, just your reactions. However, if you find you aren't following through with the book, then maybe the online work will be better. Only you can say.
