Yeah, I agree. Not putting on weight, right now, is a good thing. I struggle with emotional eating, as well.

I know it seems redundant, but not putting on weight can be viewed as a success right now. We are in this for the long haul so during this little window of your time learning to maintain may be a good lesson (I have had this myself lately!). I was on the road to gaining a lot back, but quickly gathered my senses and realized now is as good a time as any to at least learn to maintain if I can't (for whatever reason) give it all I have to lose any more weight . . . for now!

Hang in there and remember we are here. Just focus on TODAY. That's it. Don't think about next week or the next lb. Just today stay in your calorie range and do 10 min. of exercise. Tomorrow you do the same. Literally ONE day at a time!

Look at this on the positive side, you said you haven't put on weight, which is good! Sorry for your daughter and sad news. Emotional Eating is one of my downfalls also. Keep busy, which I'm sure you must be now! Try to keep junk food out of house, or just keep a huge glass of cool water next to you! emoticon

I agree, great job doing what you're doing. I think it's also good to let it out in other ways. Take a walk, swim if your apartment has it, journal, and turn to friends. I am right there with you, I turn to chocolate and potatoes when sad ... um obviously not as a combination. My thoughts and prayers are with you and your daughter on this new path.

If you have been emotional eating, you need to identify the triggers and learn how to make healthy choices. Is there a good time when everyone is out of the house or in another part of the house that you can squeeze in even 10 mins on the treadmill?
It sounds as if you're sticking to something if you're not gaining. Whatever it is, keep doing it and try to set some time aside for yourself and do more of it. emoticon

Hi to all, I just got restarted the middle of July and was doing great until my daughter and grand kids showed up and informed me she is leaving her husband. He admitted to cheating and I am behind my daughter 110%; however I live in a 1 bedroom apt which is where my treadmill and exercise bands are and have not been able to stick to my eating plan for the last 9 days. My weight hasn't increased but it hasn't gone down either.

Please any ideas on how to stay on my schedule while feeding everyone and staying away from the junk food that I crave when feeling emotional.....
Thanks,
Diet1656
