I use food, too, to comfort myself. I find that the time I spend writing in a journal distracts me and helps me to focus on my wight loss goals. emoticon

I'm very proud of you, MGIRL22 - and you've inspired me as well! emoticon

Eating healthier and not eating out as much has made me realize that I definitely used to use food for everything else that is missing in my life. A year ago I moved away from all my friends and family and I was using food to help with the lonliness I've felt since the move. I'd come home from work and binge on Jimmy Johns subs and eat chips, pizza, cookies, etc. and that would make me feel better about my situation.

Now that I don't have food in my life to comfort me, I am suddenly dealing with all these issues so I have purchased a scrapbook and am writing in a journal to deal with everything. I really put my problems in the back of my mind as I would eat my issues away. Now that I can't do that anymore, I'm realizing a lot about myself and all my problems that I have not been dealing with in the past few years. It's a hard, but really eye-opening experience. And I still have the urge to go home after a stressful day and pig out, but this time I get lean cuisine or south beach pizzas and wheat crackers, haha.

Anyways, all in all, though, I feel so much better about myself after getting healthy. I am doing much better mentally and physically. Thanks for listening ladies, you really are all super supportive and Im so glad I found this board!
