Hello....I'm finally acknowledging that I am an 'emotional eater'. I hope I can learn some positive points from this team.

I have been on this team for awhile but just getting into things. I lost about 70 pounds last year and have gained 15 back, so it's time to get back on track! Looking back emotional eating is most definitely my biggest obstacle. Looking forward to working through this with others and giving my support!

Hi! I am definitely an emotional eater. Chocolate, cheese, and breads are my primary go-to foods and over the past two weeks I've had to abstain completely from them all after finding out that I'm allergic to milk, cocoa, gluten, wheat, and a multitude of other things that I won't go into right now.

I did okay for the first week of abstinence but this past week was a nightmare. Friday I ended up bingeing on chips and gluten-free peanut butter cookies. Yesterday I finished off the chips and cookies, and then tried to distract myself.

Today I woke up with the knowledge that I can't keep going on like this or I'll regain all the weight I worked so hard to lose over the past year. I started December 1, 2013 after being diagnosed with Sleep Apnea and lost 30 pounds, though I gained a few of those back over the past week.

I can't stay in this dark place, but I'm having trouble coping with life without my go-to comfort foods. I'm hoping that rejoining Spark will get me the support I need.

I am new to the team, and new to SP with this account. I had never seen this team on my previous time in SP, but I'm very happy to see it now. When I was a child, I ate to try to make my mother happy, but now, I eat my emotions away - I try to at least. Mostly I eat for to comfort myself. So happy to be here.

I am Enough - right now.

Hi! I just found this team tonight. I've been on spark people since March 2014. My emotional eating happens mostly at night. I tend to use food to unwind after a long day of work. I run my own business and am a single mom. Trying to find options to reduce and than eliminate this habit all together. Any suggestion would be appreciated.

Most people just don't understand the private hell of emotional eating and I'm always afraid if I try to explain it to them they will just be disgusted! So glad to find this team where people can understand and encourage each other. I hope it is a fairly active group!

Just dropped in to say hello. I'm new to the team. My emotional eating happens in the evening after dinner and after my husband goes to bed (usually around 8:30pm). I'm not working and I'm up usually until 11:30pm. I've removed most of the empty calorie things from the house and I'm working on limiting my grazing to a cup of cereal and milk. So far that seems to be helping but I'd really like to get to where that snack is not even necessary. One day at a time.

I eat when I'm bored, lonely and depressed. I'm trying to find new things to substitute for the food.

I wish there was some kind of magic solution for emotional/stressful/boredom eating. If there was I would be the first to buy. Since no such thing exists, I continue to struggle with the issue. I love to cook and eat so I spend my time finding and making healthy recipes that I don't have to feel guilty about. I try to have healthier snacks in the house so when I am tempted I do as little damage as possible. When I became active on SP three months ago I made a goal for myself and even though I've had to revise that goal I don't consider it a failure and I haven't thrown in the towel. My SP friends have made me realize I'm not alone in my struggles, a setback doesn't give me an excuse to give up, giving encouragement to others encourages me to push harder and getting praise from others makes me want to remain strong. This is the hardest thing I've ever tried to do, this losing weight and getting healthy stuff, but I'm sure glad I'm still trying and I have my SP friends to thank for making the road a little easier.

HI Sunshine, I'm new to group also and hoping to get the support I need to stop eating when I am stressed. I just went to a Pain Management Seminar this past week with my hubby. He is a veteran that is disabled & also suffers from PTSD. Some of the coping mechanisms that they gave us at the seminar I will be utilizing in helping me to stop eating when stressed. Meditation, exercise, bio-feedback. I got several tapes to listen to, chair exercises DVD's, and motivation material. So hope this will help me.

Looking forward to meeting the members of this group.

Hi everyone,

I too am an emotional eater. I've known this for a long time but somehow I can't seem to kick it. I'm hoping that with the help of SP and this team I will be able to find ways to "cure" myself of this problem! I'm looking forward to hearing how everyone copes with this problem as it has been a part of my life for as long as I can remember!

I've found this team to be very supportive and made up of wonderful people. Motivation is so hard to find and even harder to maintain so get your help wherever you can. I have joined many challenges from different teams and the combination keeps me on track when I dedicate myself to them. Good luck to you and always remember you're not alone on this journey. The road may be tough but it's much easier when you're travelling with others.

Hi I'm new to the group and praying that this group will be better than the last 2 I have joined. No interaction on one group, just blogs & daily message. The other was going really good and very supportive but several members got ill, lost spouses and dropped out.

I am an overeater. Once I start to eat I just can't seem to stop till I'm uncomfortable. Even when I know I'm not really hungry I want food in my mouth. I love the taste of it and the feel of it. I know a lot of it is boredom. I have arthritis & Fibro which affects my joints. Then I had a complete knee replacement 4 months ago.I am so much better but I've gotten complacent and lazy. I do suffer from depression and we are currently buying a new home and I should be so excited but I just get down and eat.

I need to lose 30 lbs and instead of that motivating me to get up and get active I just eat more. Then I get so down on myself because I can't seem to get control of it. I hope this group will be more active and we can help support each other.

HWY Rella82,
I'm just where you are. Controlling my emotional eating has been even more difficult since I retired. I lost 40 pounds with SparkPeople two years ago and dropped out. After retirement I gained half of it back. Makes me think about going back to work. NOT!!!! emoticon
Now I'm back with SP which helps me a great deal. Welcome back. We can do it.

as i read through the comments here, i can relate to so many. i have been emotionally eating again this month. the changing of the season, colder, darker and all, plus some struggling with general unhappiness in some of my relationships, changes at work which increase stress... and, i again reverted back to food. emoticon

i think i was on this team at one point. i have been with this wonderful spark community for 1 3/4 years now and i love it. you all have helped me to get down to a more healthy weight, eat healthier and exercise regularly.
so, back to those things that i learned from you all in the beginning, team work, accountability, communicate... and keep at it.
thanks for being there, all of you. i so relate and i so appreciate each and every one of you, and the journey that you continue to walk

Hi Anna
emoticon
I know how persistent the urge to eat can be. I'm starting to understand the cycle of overeating:
Feel bad or empty...overeat
Feel bad because I overate...eat more.
Etc.
The lesson here is my belief that food is filling a void is helping to create the void that food is filling. There is no such thing as eating my way to happiness. It's taking a long time to change my thought patterns but I'm hoping to make forever changes this time.

Hi Anna ! This place will sure help! We all seem to have the same problem!! I can be "hungry" 24 hours a day and love to eat! I am really helped by the articles and other sparkfriends that do so well! Good inspiration. I am working on why I have to eat, and not do something more healthy! Ate Korean food tonite. You can eat a lot for not many calories. Chopsticks slow me down, too. I am going to remember this when I am hungry! This is a good place to talk and learn! We just need ti figure out what is missing in our lives! emoticon

Hi everyone!!! emoticon

I am Anna, and I am a lover of food. I think about food every five minutes (now as well), I eat even if I am full or feel sick because food gives some comfort which I am missing in my life. Something is missing in my life and so far food replaces it.

I am glad that I found this group. I hope it will help me emoticon

I am glad I am not alone! You are very optimistic and makes me not want to give up! I will not worry how many times I start over, and just do a day at a time, and a healthy choice at a time!The splurges are less, and I do stop them sooner too! That is good!!

Your story sounds so much like my own. Participation here on Spark has given me a new motivation to keep going. I'm still losing and gaining the same 5 pounds sometimes but I'm learning to stop it a little sooner and get back on track. It's nice to have SP friends and see that my struggle with weight loss is common. That makes me want to brush myself off and try again.

My name is Jan. I love Sparkpeople! I have lost some pounds and done well. Then I put it right back on. I have lost the same 5 lbs at least 3 or 4 times now. It seems like my body just fights to get back where I was. It sure is frustrating and much harder to lose the older I get. I really have to explore why I am not losing and what is really making me not lose emotionally. Hard work!!

Oh.. I forgot to introduce myself! lol You can call me Neko. I joined SP in June of this year, but didn't really start working on changing food or exercise habits until the beginning of September. I've known that I am an emotional eater for decades, but never pushed myself to deal with this fact until recently.

Since September, the few times I really wanted to eat everything in sight was due to a low mood. I could be all gung ho, on top of the world and motivated to making these healthy lifestyle changes... until my mood drops for some reason or another. It could be just waking up to a cold, cloudy day, or weighing myself and being frustrated. I just know that I have to do whatever it takes to keep my mood from going in a downward spiral, because when that happens I immediately start craving sugar and unhealthy carbs.

Reminder to self: Stay in the moment!

Losingit - Can I ever relate! I've been doing the same thing - logging in to SP when I'm having a rough time with emotions, and reading relevant articles. Often I find something that really resonates, and it has helped tremendously!

I certainly don't claim to have the answer for emotional eating and still battle with the issue myself but I'm learning I'm not alone and that seems to help. Being involved in SP, tracking nutrition, activity and my weight is making me more accountable for my actions. I know every Friday I'm going to weigh-in and post my progress ( or lack of ) and that helps me to make better decisions on what or how much I eat on a daily basis. If I'm struggling with stress or boredom, I sign in and read some blogs or posts and I can always find one or two that match how I'm feeling and give me words of wisdom or encouragement. I'm learning to be kinder to myself. Beating myself up for a binge is so counterproductive. I realize that emotional eating is a roller coaster ride. I eat to make myself feel better but end up feeling worse because I ate poorly so I eat to make myself feel better, etc. Since I know the pattern, I'm working on stopping the ride much sooner than I used to before too much damage is done. My road to a healthy weight and lifestyle is anything but easy but having the support from my SP friends has truly made a world of difference.

My name is Annie and I have just joined this team. It was suggested on Spark Coach. I have been on Spark People for a few years now. I lost some weight in the beginning, However, lately I have been slipping on my nutrition and just going through the motions on SP. This may very well be due to emotional eating. I have always found food to be a great source of comfort and sometimes even reward. If anyone has any suggestions on how to replace these negative thought processes I would love to hear them.

Hi all! My name is Wendy, and I just realized I am truly an emotional eater due to the increase of ingestion of calories lately in the form of carbs mostly to mitigate the stress of dealing with an unscrupulous business in connection with an insurance claim.

How does everyone else deal with their stress?

Hello everyone! I've been gone from sp and I'm back to finish what I've started. I've had high anxiety my entire life but in recent years I've noticed the desire to binge eat to feel better is really out of control. Its a challenge for me to publicly admit this as I am usually more reserved. I'm not a "share my feelings" kind of woman.
I'm glad to see there is a team for me and I look forward to gaining knowledge shared by you all as we work through this!
I have a lot to learn.

I am so glad to see there is a emotional eaters team. I have lost some weight, but then it seems like I start letting things get to me, or just get bored. That is when I start eating at night. I have gained back some of the weight I had lost. I started reading everything I could google about emotional eating. I spoke with the Doctor I work for, telling him I think I need help with that. I think just reading some of the post all of you have wrote is what I needed. I am looking forward to getting to know all of you, and also getting this eating under control. emoticon

Congrats to you both on your progress. I understand too well the mindless eating. Once it starts I find it so hard to stop. Good luck to you and your wife.

I've been a sparkpeople member for years but just recently started using it again. I was born overweight and controlling my weight has been a lifelong journey. Through the years I have tried many diets and programs to lose weight. Twice I have lost 100 pounds and put it back on.

I lost 50 pounds on my own over the last few years, but this year my wife and I started a medically supervised ketogenic program. She's lost 35 and I've lost 40 pounds this year. I try to get 10,000 steps in daily (except Sunday). I have stopped eating emotionally for the most part but I still have those days when I start eating mindlessly, and it usually has to do with some stressors in my life. Sometimes I don't recognize it until after the fact. Thanks for having me on this team.

Grace and peace to you,

moonius

Welcome to the team and good luck. I've been backsliding the past couple of weeks and really need to get back on track. Here's to us learning new ways of coping with stress and managing a better lifestyle.

Hi everyone!

I'm so glad to have found this team; in the last year I've steadily gained quite a bit of weight - although I had a short period of time when I lost at the beginning of this year, I generally haven't been able to maintain it. This is mostly due to the fact that whenever I feel a bit overwhelmed/life gets stressful etc, I turn to eating. I've been trying to be more aware of this and at least change the foods I'm eating, but it's nor working as easy as hoped.
I'm feeling quite motivated though - I've been away from the site for a few months but I'm back now with goals to reach!

I'm retired and stooped using Spark people when I retired. two years and 40 pounds later, i needed to get back in the program. I struggled with eating especially when I get bored. I know that I need to keep my mind and body occupied with useful activities to mitigate my urges to eat something. Looking forward to joining this team.

Hi! I have been battling this weight thing for years! I have finally revamped my life to cooking fresh meats and vegetables but my allergies are off the charts during the summer months, and I have gained 10 pds taking Benedryl! This stresses me, and I am here to learn how to cope with the stress instead of EATING! I am currently trying to learn how to control my allergies naturally, so I will not continue to gain weight because of my medicine! I have stopped and started so many times, but this time it is going to be different because my mindset is on the future in Yahushua (Jesus) and not the past! I look forward to growing with this group as we turn from eating when we are going through something.

Without a struggle, there can be no progress!

Welcome KARMABEL. You've found a wonderful place to get support and strength. I've only been active on this site for about 2 months now and I'm so glad I finally decided to jump in and join this journey with others facing the same challenges and feelings that I faced for years. I'm sending you lots of positive thoughts. I'm glad you've joined us.

Hello team.
I cannot remember a time when I did not associate emotions with food. Like so many out there- family expectations, arguments, memories, celebrations, disappointments, break ups, stress, and boredom, have lead to choosing food to soothe and comfort my mind and soul.
Now, I join Spark, again, after trying, and then quitting 3 years ago when I was diagnosed with diabetes, chronic pain, and a multitude of dis-eases.
Ok -I just typed and erased my medical issues and history about 3-4 times now. It's uncomfortable, feels like whining, and I sound like a victim. Basically, I have become a typical American, morbidly obese stereotype. I realize I've slowly been killing myself.
Me; No one else.
After starting to fix my medical issues this year, I've come to the conclusion that FOOD is the best medicine (or poison). I'm a life-long, binging vegetarian, who is now starting a vegan, whole food, plant based diet. I am determined (today), to reverse what dis-eases me, get off pills, and make a daily, no,-a moment-to-moment choice to EAT to LIVE. I'm soaking up info right now, and all Spark has to offer. I'm looking for encouragement, compassion and support for this uphill climb, and others who need the same. So glad you are all here. I do believe this is my last chance, and I want to make it, but am scared. (that, right there, was really uncomfortable to say). but...I will not delete.

Change the I to WE, and Illness becomes Wellness!

I find two things really help. Chatting on the computer and going out walking. Reading can too but I have to be deep enough into the story not to be tempted by snacking (I've always snacked while I read).

Thanks for the advice Fitter! Finding a distraction seems logical, I just have to find one that works for me. I have the best of intentions each and everyday, but find myself quickly spiralling out of control... I don't know if there's a deeper reasoning behind it, such as depression/anxiety/maybe a medical disorder... But I know it's an unhealthy way to live and I want to get it under control. :(

Same here Andrea. All I can say is distract yourself and talk to others. Sometimes just telling someone what's on my mind helps.

Hi guys! My name's Andrea, and I would say that emotional eating is probably the MAIN reason I am overweight today... I struggle with this on a daily basis and would love to hear any suggestions/adive in order to break this cycle. I look forward to getting to know everyone! :)

I thought I should join this one...since emotional eating is the biggest reason I struggle with my weight (the other is sometimes falling into inactivity...more rare, I struggle with the emotional eating all the time).

Anyway, I'm Kelly and I'm from Michigan. I'm married to a wonderful man and together we have two ginormous cats (we think they have some ragdoll in them). I'm a freelance math tutor and over the summer I'm a childcare provider for my nieces (six and eight this year). I like spending time with my family (including said cats) and friends, reading (I average 50 books a year), walking (especially in fall and winter..yes even in the snow and I have crampons to deal with that and ice), hiking, and swimming.

I've struggled with emotional eating since my early teens. My parents were fighting a lot and I don't know how it exactly got into my head to eat to cope with it but it did. Now my triggers tend more to me being procrastinating or stressed.

Hello everyone! My name is Lori I have 5 kids and been married almost 15 years. I have been dealing with depression and stress and it has lead to emotional eating. I have lost some weight on my own but I can tell I am gaining it back. I really could use the support and I am hoping to make some new friend here as well :-) thanks

Every day is a new beginning.. Let's make the best of it!!

Thank you, and I agree! I met some great people 5 years ago, and I know I will now too. Sometimes, the things we go through in our weight loss journeys feel so personal and private, so I am always much more comfortable sharing and discussing with like-minded others on this site. I've always felt it difficult to share my weight struggles with my friends, I guess due to my own shame and embarrassment, and having been up and down the last 5 years hasn't helped. I am more motivated than ever, I think, so I look forward to the journey with all of you!

Hi all. I have actually been a member of this team since 2009 but I disappeared for a few years and returned to get myself back on track. I find that I've always been an emotional eater..lately, I have been happy and positive but I still find myself mindlessly eating when I'm bored or stressed. I need to learn to eat only when hungry, and to choose the right foods! This group helped me five years ago and I'm confident you all can help me again... Hopefully I can help in return!

Hi
This is the first time I have posted in this team, I have stress problems as I am a carer for my husband who has mental health problems.
I find evenings very difficult especially when he is in a down mood as he will spend weeks in bed doing nothing not even eating, washing or dressing and this is when I turn to nibbling.
Twice a week I go to aqua fit, swimming or the gym and i try to go on 3 walks a week if the weather is OK.
Over the last 2-3 years(not been keeping a check) I have lost over 2 stones but it has been very hard to do.

Hi all wanted to stop by and introduce myself. My name is Michelle and I live in Canada, I have three great kids a wonderful boyfriend and love life in general :) The only thing that I don't love is my weight lol. I have been battling emotional eating and boredom eating for as long as I can remember (currently I am on the losing end of the battle) I am ready for a change ! I look forward to getting to know new people who share my struggles and know what this battle is really like :)

More sweat now,
Less jiggle later :D

So glad to be a part of this group. I am a nurse by background, but for the past 25 years, I have worked as a weight-loss coach, speaker, and writer. I have my own personal issues with gaining weight easily, especially since my breast cancer surgery 4 years ago. I blame the long-term med I have to take, but it's probably also from getting sloth with my efforts, and eating to cope.

As a weight-loss coach, I am passionate about helping people overcome the barriers that get in the way of success with managing their weight. I am the author of three weight-loss books, including my newest one, "Friends with the Scale."

Starting on Aug. 18th, I will be writing a blog post each day about the lessons in the book "100 Days of Weight Loss." I will also include my own personal answers to the questions at the end of each lesson. Here's a link to my blog:

glad to be back here, ladies, I am a middle of the night binger, which is turning into a bad habit, I stopped doing this, but when I cant sleep,which is every night, I will get up and eat bread, crackers, etc, which seems to make me sleep, but in the morning I feel crummy,,,,,it has prevented me from losing weight, and very frustrating, I have conditioned myself to automatically get up, go to bathroom, and go in kitchen, feel very bad about this, but eat pretty good in the day,,,,,my husband is thin and can sleep on a log!!!!!!

way to go girl

Hi there! I've been on Sparkpeople for a couple of years, driving my wagon successfully sometimes, riding along happily some of the time, and falling off and getting run over it more times than the first two.

So now, I'd like to build a completely new wagon that has better safety features.

The act of failing itself does not make me a failure. Only failing to begin again can do that.

Hello. I am new here. I used to be on spark years ago and quit. I'm back now due to gaining 60 of the 100 lbs I lost back. I eat when I'm stressed, bored, upset...you name it and I'll eat because of it.
