Ask yourself what it is you want when you eat? Are you lonely, angry, bored? I get bored and do the same thing. Once you determine the feeling, then find something that you enjoy doing and do that instead. Grab an ice tea or water and go do it. Keep your hands busy with quilting, knitting or polish your nails, etc. You can do it!

Hmmm...you sound a lot like me, :) though I'm still struggling with getting my rear up to excercise. The thing that helped me the most was someone on here reminding me that regardless of how hard I work out and how much I try watching what I eat, it'll take awhile to see the benefits, especially if, like me you ate poorly for years. Also, it's only natural to fall back into your old ways and make oops', especially if you've had a hard or emotional day. The more time that passes in which you can say no to the emotional eating, the easier it'll get and the more results you'll slowly begin to see. (I hate the "slowly" part too!:) Unfortunately, it just takes time. I'd love to be your cheerleader though. (Maybe you can be mine too.) Just keep telling yourself throughout the day, "I can do this!"
Hi Spark People, I am an emotional eater. I felt I was at a stage in my life that I was ready to get back on track and lose the weight. Then more "life" stuff happened and here I am back to my emotional eating again. I don't have a problem excercising, I walk 3 mornings a week, run twice a week, and strenght train twice a week, but having lots of issues getting my eating under control. Any suggestions?
