emoticon FORMYBELLA and emoticon to SparkPeople's DwD Team...Nice to have you with us on the journey to a healthier lifestyle.

You gain strength, courage and confidence by every experience in which you really stop to look fear in the face.

Mistakes are the portals of discovery.

Don't be afraid to give your best at what seemingly are small jobs. Every time you conquer one it makes you that much stronger. If you do the little jobs well, the big ones will tend to take care of themselves.

It is never too late to be what you might have been.

From the perspective of my personal experience, that demon is unresolved emotional issues... by that I mean the eating is a mask to cover up what it is you are afraid of. For me fear covered anger and I can't believe once I started to deal with the anger, many of the "if I could only find the right thing to eat, I would feel better" feelings lessened and finally departed.

I am sure your therapy will help. I must be completely honest and say that therapy was without exception, the hardest work I ever did in my life. That said, it was also the most rewarding!

I am convinced that the overeating that caused my weight gain was emotional. That's why working with a therapist can be helpful. That said, I did lose weight while I was in therapy,but we never talked about it. I think what happened was dealing with my other issues, allowed me to quit using food as a crutch to deal with my emotions.

Hi and welcome to the team. Do you drink 8 glasses of water? I find that drinking water helps curb the snacking. It keeps you full.

I love SparkPeople

Today is the first day of the rest of my life.

I am responsible for my own happiness.

Hi and emoticon to the team. I stopped by your Spark Page and you have a really great attitude. Are you under a doctor's care for your depression? Do you take any medications? Overeating and depression are partners for sure. Exercise is my solution to the grazing that I will do all day if I let myself. I break my day into small exercise sessions so that I have something to keep me occupied. I watch kids so it is easy to eat all day long if I let myself. The other thing that I do is to check in here. If I am having a bad day, the other members of this team help boost me up. There is always someone around to talk to. I am sending you hugs and positive energy to help you get through this rough spot. Be sure to keep healthy fruits and vegetables around to use for snacking and to help keep you full between meals. If eating between meals is the problem, then perhaps eating smaller meals more often during the day would help. Be sure you are well hydrated, drinking water can often stave off a hunger attack. Most of all, be kind to yourself if you fall. Forgive your transgressions and get right back to measuring and tracking your food. You can always tweak the week to reflect adjustments for overeating on any given day. Don't give up. We are all in this together and you are not alone. If you are in need of some instant inspiration, perhaps reading some of the Success Stories at the top of the page would be good motivation. I hope that you are back on top soon. Take care and God bless, Deb T.
