Teri, Sandy, I need daily motivation and if we don't check in we can't encourage each other. Sandy -look forward what you can do to be healthy now.....It definitely is a battle. Don't get discouraged keep on going.
14 years ago my brother had his big toe cut off from complications from diabetes. It has been my motivation to keep exercising and trying to lose weight. He died last fall from kidney failure but by God's grace I have not succumbed to the 70% chance of getting diabetes II because of a sibling who had it. The little things do pay off.

Thank Terri for asking people to check in. I wasn't going to today but after I saw your post it made me want to reach out. I did good with my food today. I got a call at work today from my Dr. office. I have been in getting all my annual stuff done. They did my blood work and it looks really bad. I have been so proud of my self for my month of healthy eating thinking all my problems were solved. I have only 1 kidney and the one I have is having trouble. all the normal tests are high and I may even be developing diabetes. I know it is not true but I can't help but feel like this hard work is all a waist of time the damage is done. I will keep plugging away at it but I am feeling pretty down on myself right now for all the years of abuse I have given y pour body. emoticon

I don't know if people really check in daily but that is what I need and I hope others will follow. I am on vacation today. I don't have anything in particular planed. I had to take the day because once again I have built up to much vacation. I have a few Dr. Appointments I am getting over with. My husband is having a root canal so he is out of the picture today. I need to go get some exercise but I am making excuses not to go. I really am just waiting for lunch time then I will just be waiting for dinner time. I am letting this day just go by. I need the motivation to do something

We did decide to change our itinerary. It means losing a chunk of dough on a hotel room, but being miserable just to save the amount we're talking about isn't worth it to us. Then we had a small crisis when we arrived to her parents' lake home to find that someone-we still haven't figured out who- left the fireplace on, using up propane. It wasn't really a fire hazard, but it was still scary to think it might have started on its own. Also, I can get charged up over other people's anxiety, and my friend was very distressed, repeating the same issues over and over. A repair person is supposed to be arriving soon. Yes, on a Sunday! But gas and fire issues are serious, so the company is doing the right thing.

We have a general plan for meals, which will be enough for me. No need for any random food. May supplement with coffee, as it's actually a little cool where we are. Ironic!

Am on the second day of a visit to a friend during which we are supposed to be driving cross country. The upcoming heat wave in the Southwest is throwing a wrench in our plans, and we got a little short with each other. Ugh. I hope sleeping on it will have helped. I have an idea for how to change plans so that a bit of the trip is salvaged, but don't know if she'll go for it. I can feel that urge to just go munch on cereal. I've had breakfast, my body is well fed, I have plenty of reserves of glycogen and fat to draw from, and I don't need any food. I can handle the urge without eating. I will possibly have another cup of decaf.

Sorry not to have been posting. Wasn't purposely avoiding reporting failures, but only yesterday had a "good" day for the first time in a few weeks. I tend to get reminded to post when other people do. This team has about 50x the members of the Living Binge Free team I'm on. 'Course, we have only a small group that posts there, too. It takes quite a few of non-posters to get a core, I guess.

Hope the juicer helps make a difference. I may be kidding myself, but I feel greens and veggies have been crucial for me in balancing out the years of eating so much refined food. I didn't try to do it all in one swoop. But now they play a regular role in my eating and the refined stuff a much smaller one. It's been an evolution...

Started my day off at the gym. I haven't been there in over 3 weeks so it was good to get back. For some reason, getting there is harder than exercising there. My husband bought me a juicer so today I'm going to the fruit market to get some fruit and start juicing. I have a hard time digesting green vegetables so I'm hoping this will help. I want to eat healthier and be stronger. Here's to day 1.

Was tempted to get a mousse-like dessert at a coffee place I had to pass by on the way to an appointment. They didn't serve it anymore! I almost had myself convinced to go to a supermarket and look in the pudding section instead, something I haven't done for about a year. Then I remembered I had the makings for something rather similar at home, but with no sugar or even fat. A little weird, but it 's stuff I'm trying to use up anyway. I was SO glad I didn't give in to the foolish old pattern. I had a great meal and reinforced the way I want to live.

I hope you were able to sit and eat your evening meal rationally. I have a rule that I don't try to make up for not eating by eating more later. I figure my body still has plenty of reserves in my arms, legs and bottom just for such situations. In fact, I often get full faster if I've gotten very hungry, though I had to learn to respect that. I actually like getting very hungry a few times a week. I know it's often recommended not to, but I've found I can change my mindset about it, and it doesn't feel dangerous. It's a perfectly natural feeling, and people in slim cultures expect to feel it a few times a day.

I went to check in for jury duty today and got let go rather early, but it would have been a hassle to go back to work, so I stayed downtown. I had brought my lunch with me. Being released rang old bells of wanting to celebrate with food and also fill up the time. SO many eating establishments and places to get snacks! I just kept ignoring them, though I did have an extra coffee with cream. I also did a lot of walking, trying to get some public stairs. I didn't realize how far they were from my car. I ended up doing over 10 miles, in stages! My feet feel fine but I do feel it in my thighs.

So far so good. Exercised this morning. Now I am starving though and want to eat everything in sight because I had no time for lunch at work today.... Fighting the urge to splurge on eating...

Not letting emotional eating get to me is separate from my following any particular plan, though eating good food regularly helps me to know that my desires for random food are deceptive.

I had a lot of problems today involving a water leak (MY pipe) a collapsed hillside from it, upset neighbors, and still not completely resolved about what my obligation is. I also got some disturbing news about my teaching schedule today, but I ate my meals as usual. I did allow myself two extra hot beverages. These don't lead to more and more, as eating does, sometimes even eating "healthy." It's better if I don't chew.

Had a decent day considering it's Monday which is the most stressful day of the week for me. I decided to try and take a smoothie for breakfast with some greens in it. Too bad the pretty green color didn't taste as good as it looked but I drank it anyway. I ate a salad before dinner and only ate chicken when my husband added fries to his meal. This will be a process. I start out great but fizzle out and lose steam so this time I'm going slow and making gradual changes. I feel good today and more motivated than yesterday.

Yesterday I did great with exercise and ate 1 meal. but it was huge, and I ate dessert too! Somehow I gained 5 pounds in one day!
Doing better today exercised and didn't go crazy with food, but I did eat a lot of creamed spinach.

Had a relaxed day with food yesterday. It actually helped me sleep, which I very much needed. Looking forward to my plan today, even if it takes some effort to stick to. Just got back from a few days out of state with more eating than usual, but all part of the mix. But it is common to get those pesky thoughts and urges to be more random with eating after such events. I just need to remind myself how much better I'll feel in a few hours if I don't give in. I'm never sorry I waited for my next meal!

What a great discovery! Some diet gurus claim that sugar cravings are a sign of inadequate saturated fat intake, but I haven't noticed that difference even when experimenting with it. Small amounts of unsaturated or monosaturated fats make a meal feel more complete to me. But honestly, nothing has ever taken away all desire for sweets. But it's completely manageable now and that's all I ask.

Sticking to my routine is just about always more supportive of my real needs than giving in to random thoughts to eat. The routine allows for a variety of foods.Most thoughts to eat outside of the routine don't signal any real need anyway. The less I reinforce false hunger, the better.

I discovered something new about myself: My body really reacts adversely to sugar! Especially these last few months--since I've been faithfully tracking my food intake. I had become so focused on keeping the calories down, that I began avoiding higher fat foods. In spite of keeping those calories within my range, I dealt with lots of hunger (the kind that makes you shaky) & wasn't losing any weight. My carbs were increasing the whole time. 3 days ago, I began to eat higher fat foods again & the intense hunger is gone! I can now go 5 or 6 hours between eating without being ravenous & without an increase in total calories for the day. What freedom! Time will tell if I'm on the right road here. emoticon

My eye is on the prize of just reasonable eating, which for me means most of my food eaten at meals, and sweets only a few times a month. I do allow for other eating on weekends, but thankfully, it's become the new normal for to keep it reasonable. The scale is a side issue, but the last few months have brought more loss that seems to be relatively stable with about a 5-lb. fluctuation. That is okay with me, as it's clear it's mostly water, since I don't overeat by thousands of calories. It is not my goal to eat the least possible and weigh the least possible.

Good Afternoon to all,

Just checking in (which I haven't been able to do much lately). Coming to the end of Spring Break with many emotional ups and downs. I have had hardly any time to myself or to plan out what I need/want to do. Mostly a week of quick reactions, and I don't do well under those conditions.

I enjoy the kids being home but am looking forward to the "routine" of next week.

All in all I didn't do too bad with the emotional eating and will try to pat myself on the back for that.

Weekends are always a little rough but I am going into this weekend DETERMINED to do well.

Thanks for listening.....

If I may, try to get really clear what pleasure you'll be giving up to eat less junk food, and what you think you'll get more of by eating less of it. It's got to be something that feels good to you on the inside more than just a number on the scale. What price in regret and worry are you paying by continuing to eat it? Etc. And what non-junk foods can you get a decent amount of pleasure from eating? It's not all torture. Try minimizing how awful it is to NOT eat when the desire is there and MAXIMIZE how glad you'll feel when you hold out for a smarter meal later. Make at least one thing at that meal seem special, and work hard to look forward to THAT. Mine used to be a buttered biscuit. Now it's often a couple of tablespoons of walnuts. They taste so much better when I WAIT to eat them!

A bit frustrated, keep gaining and losing the same 3 lbs. Having a hard time being disciplined enough to stay away from junk food.

Welcome back. I am trying to get some work done. The trouble with being in IT is that we get to work odd hours when it is needed. Would like some sleep.

Back at work today after two weeks off. Feeling melancholy over unpleasant tasks, but they need to be done. Going to have some raspberry tea and make tomorrow's lunch.

I don't call it an emotional weakness. It's just a habit, naturally reinforced by the food environment, and strengthened with practice. It will probably never go away completely. Thin people eat for emotional reasons sometimes, too. It's just not their default. You can turn this around. Keep your eyes on the prize: more zip, more pride, more enjoyable meals, and better glucose levels. Just keep thinking: I'll be SO glad I waited for my meal. Then find out that you are!

I've heard that about Jennie Craig and also watched my neighbor lose 100 lbs and gain it back. Thank you for the great advice. I know I need to overcome this emotional weakness . . . your words help. My doctor was concerned about my glucose level. It has been borderline for a few years now.

Laurie if I may say so, the stats on Jennie Craig helping people stay compliant a year or two later aren't very good, even if they actually lose much weight, which is also inconsistent. You might as well just stick with your own cobbled meals, including the amounts you know are reasonable. If you can so no to extra food when you eat her stuff, you can do it with your own menu. Do you think you will feel better, lighter and more peppy, if you eat less? The prospect of that used to help me hold out when the urges came, as well as just knowing that resisting when it was hard is the best way to weaken the habit of giving in. I learned that we often give in before the urge has reached a peak, and that makes it even stronger. The urges will usually reach a peak and subside. If we can wait past the peak, the pattern is disrupted. It's not fun, but neither is overeating and feeling stuffed and regretful.

Is there any other difference your doctor is looking for besides a change in weight? You might be able to improve blood values or pressure by eating quality food and increasing exercise even without much weight loss. I'd ask about comparisons of those things as well since your last visit, when you do go in.

Please do look at what your health risks are and let them help strengthen you to do what you need to heal. It's hard, but being in poor health is hard, too. You might as well do the one that makes you feel better for a longer time.

Hello all. I've been busy and not on SP so much. I've been doing a LOT of emotional eating. I do great all day...and then I return to my empty house and start eating. Healthy food. In large quantities. I did it again last night except this time I acknowledged to myself as I went that I was eating too much. My doctor told me to lose weight and now I'm due to go see him in May and I've gained 7 lbs. I'm so mad at myself! I wonder if I can lose 7 lbs before I see him. I feel like I'm being very self-destructive. Is it the loneliness? The cold weather? As soon as it gets warmer, I'm heading out on my bike. I see a lot of couples riding together which makes me feel lonely but at least I get some great exercise.

I really need to get this eating under control. I've even considered Jenny Craig or some other program that controls your food for you but it's so expensive! I know I need to plan out my meals. I'm looking for some containers that have 3 sections to help me.

I really know what I need to do. I just need to commit myself to taking better care of me.

I was going to write that I was choosing to do some emotional eating right now, but just writing that made me stop. I'll save the rest of the food for later. It's good quality stuff, not the junky stuff that will keep calling. I went to a meetup event, an organized Indian cooking class. It was okay but I didn't find it to be rip roaring fun or relaxing. The dish was okay, and the food a little too much dense starch for me. I'm very aware that I often have high expectations of events. I don't know how not to have them. I don't mean to put that burden on other people. Afterwards, I wandered through a few stores before coming home. I have the vague feeling often that there is something I'm supposed to be doing but I don't know what it is, and the stuff I probably should be doing I don't want to do.

I don't say these things for anyone to try to solve my dilemmas. I am just clear about one thing. I know I'll feel better later if I don't eat any more now.

The sun is glinting off a reclining Buddha statue on the table on my deck. My wind chimes are tinkling. A plane is going over and the loquat branches are bobbing lightly in the breeze. It has to be enough.

I'm relatively new here. I tend to blah blah on. It's a bit selfish because it serves my needs. Feel free to ignore my comments, if they tax your patience or seem preachy. I sometimes cut and paste to a blog, but I already did that today! So you will be the ones to suffer.

I've lost all my weight without calorie counting. However, I have other guidelines that are even more important to me. In fact it was extremely important to me that I learn to deal with food without calorie counting, even though I know that is bucking the trend and even the focus of Spark. I know that people in slim cultures do not count calories but they have very firm habits around food that end up limiting their intake. It was more important to me that I be like one of them than it was to depend on the precision of measuring and recording all my food. I like being able to go to a restaurant and use my best judgement. It does involve a level of honesty that some people think is even harder than figuring calories. I think it's pure luck when someone stumbles on some style that feels relatively effortless. Most of us can't depend on that luck.

I found out last week that my bodyfat is even a bit higher than yours, Coco. But I really can't see myself eating a lot less than I do now. I've been maintaining in the normal BMI range for five years as of today, and see myself being able to to cut very little. I know that since I was heavier at one point, it takes fewer calories for me to maintain my weight.

But I am intrigued by the idea that I could use up some more of my fat stores and build some muscle with movement. I have not been exercising regularly. Not proud of that! I will be checking out some kettlebell centers this week. I don't know why, but it's the only workout I can see myself paying for these days. I paid for gyms for so many years without using them. If I decide the kettlebell isn't what I want, I will consider joining a gym with no contract to use some kind of cross trainer. There's one on one of my routes home from work that is 10 bucks a month. I see myself being willing to spend about three months with a trainer or a gym membership. Maybe I'm kidding myself, but I think I can then continue at home. I've got stuff here! I just haven't been able to make myself use it. It's worth the experiment to see if this will get me started. I think there are other benefits besides getting my bodyfat down. It will have to be just a happy side effect.

I wrote a long blog on something that I think applies here but may not have much of an impact, depending on where a reader is at. I've come to the conclusion that I can't really tell very much about whether a food is going to satisfy me just because I want it. This goes for non-binge foods as well. I don't feel the need to be able to tell, either. I don't have to depend on this kind of knowledge anymore. Most of the time, when I eat the meals I've worked out for myself over time, I feel satisfied, but I can't actually say why. I do eat a lot less of certain foods, but it's been an evolution. I can't even prove I'm that much better off. Maybe I could get the same results eating the old foods, but it's a moot point now. I'm not going to go back to eating them in the quantities I used to. I've found different ones, and I believe they are superior in quality to the refined and manufactured foods I ate more of before.

But it applies to emotional eating because it's almost never true that we will be satisfied by the food we desire outside of a core of supportive eating. However, it can take a LONG time before that is so clear that we do the hard work of saying no at the right time. We are so used to thinking that we should try to get the things we want, including food. How else can we know what to try to get? I gave up on trying to use the prescribed ways of reading my body. People in slim cultures have rather set routines for their meals. They don't depend on whims.

Speaking of foods, I need to go store the grain I just cooked.

Hang in there! Let's skip the random urges to eat, even when it's hard to. Whatever my body truly needs, it can get from its stores or at the next meal. IMHO.

Went to the gym Monday for evaluation. My body fat is 28.6. So sad. I started logging my food and drink intake since Tuesday. Uugh, I didn't want to calorie count. I need to figure out my average of protein, fat and carbs so I can alter my diet accordingly.

I don't believe I can always stop the feeling/thought of being bored but I know I never HAVE to eat just because I get the urge to. I'm free to give in, but I also know it will not cause me any damage to just experience the difficult desire to give in.

It has been very important for me to have a general eating plan that I consider fair and that allows for all foods I still enjoy, though some of them are very infrequent. It includes certain guidelines I accepted and then adjusted over time, but it was always pretty clear when I was not following it, so the incidences of mindless eating were very obvious, as were many other excuse that were just fake hunger. However, sometimes I allowed myself in the plan to be mindless, and reduced the allowances over time. Weight loss was not my major goal. Long term compliance was and I knew it was more likely to reduce the events. It took longer than some 12-week program to get good at it, but I also knew that is typical for long term maintainers.

Anyway, I'm here because I'm continuing to adjust my plan and feel at least for now that more fake hunger is being dismantled..I also know I can't wait for there to be no desire and no triggers before I eat the way I know will bring me vitality and pleasure overall. I like having this kind of venue, not the tracking/weight loss focus, to give comfort and be comforted.

I also eat out of boredom, and the problem with that particular habit is that often I wouldn't even notice how much I ate until I go to the bottom of the box/bag. I think this is a really dangerous unaware kind of eating...and it's difficult to give up that habit. How many of us like to eat when we watch TV, go to a movie, reading.... I was world worst at eating and snacking. I would eat an entire sleeve of crackers while reading.

The thing is...we have to STAY in awareness when it comes to what we put in our mouths. That unconscious kind of eating was very connected to knocking me off many "diets." I would think, "well...I'll only eat 1 or 2," then because of not staying in awareness, I ate the whole thing. The good news is that old habits CAN be broken. I had to commit to awareness. I had to commit to eating purposefully. I had to commit to foods as "medicine" for my broken body. I had to promise my body and God that I would only eat those things that would strengthen, nourish, and guide my body to wellness. Because, you see, the body you now have is only on loan. It's not REALLY yours...you are borrowing it. It's meant to be God's vessel, and every time you put something in your mouth that is unhealthy or that you're not aware of, you are damaging something that really isn't yours.

I firmly believe that God wants us to live a happy life with abundance. Abusing our bodies does not fit His or our purpose. Eat consciously with purpose. Your body will respond to good treatment, and you will recover health that you may have thought you've lost forever. I'm a walking testimony to that. God bless, enjoy your weekend, and eat something good for your body. Learn to love God's gift. emoticon emoticon

Incredible story, Paula. I think I need to do the same thing as well, instead of always reaching for food. Good for you!

Speaking of mindless eating, I'm annoyed with myself for late night snacking this weekend. Went to the beach and my son rode his bike, so I got a nice long walk. So what do I do that night, I eat a little food before bed. Bad move. I didn't gain back a ton of weight, but I know I can't snack after about 8pm (roughly three hours before I go to bed). I think another reason I'm annoyed is I'm trying to get past the lost 5 pounds mark. I did, and then gained it back. For awhile it was because my go to healthier snacks were gone, so I was snacking on what I could find, and even though I was trying to keep it to a minimum, it didn't work. So I got my snacks back and I went shopping for healthy stuff for lunches, so hopefully I can get back on track.

Thanks team I needed your kind words. I did gain last week. I am not surprised because of the emotional eating I did. I listened to a wonderful message on forgiving 3 times and it was a big help to me. Possibly the key to end most of my emotional eating! I have forgiven many people many things in the past week and feel pretty free due to the grace of God and His love for me and the love He supplies to love others.

Matthew 11:28 Come unto me all ye that are heavy laden and I will give you rest unto your soul.

Has anyone noticed the (for me) brief warning before a binge? I have an emotional upset (at the moment I have more triggers than a room full of handguns) then there is a brief awareness of what is happening. It's brief because my gremlin shuts the awareness off. You know, that part of you that does NOT want the best for you? That thing in your head that does all the negative self talk? It's brief, but when I really started paying attention, I noticed it. It is that moment I have to seize and act on immediately. I've been a slave to my emotions for most of my life, but I'm training myself to react in a positive way rather than be self destructive.

When that moment happens, I get up, get out, and remove myself from the kitchen. I sit outside on the patio, go for a walk, get in the car, go to visit a friend (or call a friend). I go to the pool and water dance, walk the dog, pick up a book, meditate...the point is, I focus my mind elsewhere. I've been keeping a chart of my emotional well being, and it works best when whatever I do is active--even if it is walking the mall and window shopping. Being around other people is a close second, and if I can talk a friend into a trip to the mall or a walk, that is best (for me).

I have really been trying to focus on this issue because I believe it has been the reason I've been morbidly obese for over 30 years. I've now lost 100 pounds because I'm winning the mind game. The key to most of our wellness is in the mind. I will recommend a book if you are interested in reading about your own personal gremlin: Taming Your Gremlin by Rick Carson. It's a beginning....and I wish you wellness. I will try to post about what I'm learning as I read, research, and continue to grow in this area. One thing I am aware of...emotional eating is arbitrary, self destructive, and a wolf in sheep's clothing. It's a trickster trying to steal our self worth and dignity. It's time to tame it. God bless.

You hang in there anyway. Don't let his hurtfulness send you to the pantry or the frig. 37 years ago you didn't have time and energy to give him maybe as much as he wanted but he didn't offer to help either? I have similar issues with my husband (we had six kids and never hired a babysitter for anything) and try to use the hurt to send me into MOTION instead. What a great time to go for a walk around the block;clean out one cupboard, one closet; write a letter; run an errand; do grapevines or lunges or side leg lifts; play the piano - anything to allow me to diffuse without stuffing my face to subdue the emotion. I'm sorry you hurt and I hope this helps. You can do this - You got this! Look up and breath and stretch up and breath.

So my husband and I are having a conversation about sharing things with each other and he said "Well I haven't tried to tell you what was happening since 37 years ago----- you didn't seem like you wanted to know" Wow- way to make me feel unloved--- He has gotten frustrated with me for all of the times I have told him and asked him to communicate with me when all along it had been a decision he made not to---Needless to say I overate this week, and have been discouraged by his attitude.....Not to mention that 37 years ago I was a stay at home mom, with 3 little kids, 2 who woke up twice during the night, and I had no car to use on a regular basis....I guess he didn't think about what was going on with me then either. It explains a LOT of our communication problem don't you think! But no reason to overeat...it certainly won't change the past! emoticon

I am doing so much better emotionally after just hanging on though my father-in-law's (seemed to me) slow death and funeral. I have gotten sick but am getting re-focused and "finding my strong". This has become my mantra - making sure that set-backs do not become failures and making good choices one at a time and one after another. I am feeling victorious again.I know are not as important as facts but I wouldn't be at this weight without them.

Bit of a binge this evening. I'm not sure what triggered it, but I'll think over it tonight. Not going to let it get me down

Had a fairly good day yesterday and have a list of things to keep me occupied today, so hopefully I shouldn't need to worry about emotional eating.

So I am back home from attending my father-in-laws funeral. Changing my focus from calorie deficit eating to calorie goal eating and whatever exercise i do is a bonus. I love the Quick Fire Challenge and walking or exercising with my oldest daughter. No Valentine's sweets for for me or my sweetie. Re-focusing is my new hope and the beginning of new resolve.

We did a secret Valentine exchange at work today. The person who got my name is a new friend and she knows I'm trying to stay away from candy and such. The problem is she's been out sick this week and a couple of the supervisors must have thought I was going to get left out, so they put together a nice little goody bag for me. It was a sweet thought...emphasis on the sweet. Half a dozen home baked choc-chip cookies with Heath bar crumbles in them, half a dozen home made truffles, and a giant bag of peanut M&M's. My spouse likes the M&M's so she offered to take them off my hands. That triggered a big issue with me that I thought I had gotten under control. Those M&Ms are mine. I may not even like them, but they are MINE and that inner monster of mine would eat the whole bag if I gave it the chance just to keep them from being taken away. So, I allowed myself to have a few to remind myself that I don't like them before I gave them to my spouse. I guess it's a good thing I'm seeing my therapist today.

On a brighter note there was also a really cool bracelet and an awesome hat in the goody bag. Those I'm keeping!

I don't know what is wrong with me. I've been feeling down the past few days and all i want to do is eat. I've gone over my calories the past 2 days and i'm not drinking my water like i was. At work all i want to do is eat, when i get home all i want to do is eat and i don't know why. Nothing is going on to make me feel down. Every night i'm still preparing my snacks to take to work the next day (healthy snacks) but it's like it's not enough. I've lost 14 pounds and i do not want to gain them back.

Good Morning.
This was a tough week for me. Just getting over a cold and my appetite was BACK! So I had a few days when I just wanted to snack. I fought to control it but I wasn't perfect. Last night I finally got it completely under control again.

January 1st I started with "no evening eating" after 7PM. It really was hard at first but I managed to abide by my rule every night except this week. So today I am back on track.
Happy Valentines Day everyone.

I find that I do emotional eating a lot when I am worried or struggling in a relationship. I have been reading a lot about emotional eating and how we have tendencies to need more of the same thing to achieve the same results. I have started going out to walk when I feel like eating. It has helped me a lot.

Just 1/5 mile to 100 pounds.

I'm not sure if I've always been an emotional eater, but my eating habits didn't have any consequences until I started working in office environments and I became far more stationary. Chocolate is one my big downfalls, but so are simple carbs (bread, muffins, donuts, croissants, cakes, pies...sory, I'll stop). Again, I try really hard to eat healthy. I've mostly cut gluten and dairy out, but I so remember the 80/20 rule. This past weekend I was still dealing with a major cold and it did a number on my appetite on Saturday. I had a decent breakfast, a tiny bit of my healthy salad, and dinner I let myself splurge with chicken fingers and fries and 1 scoope of vanilla frozen yogurt with hot fudge (we went to Friendly's). Even after that, and only exercising a tiny bit (a little strength and a tiny amount of cardio because I was so tired), I actually lost weight. A tiny bit came back the next day when my appetite got better, but I'm trying really hard to find healthy choices and stay hydrated.

My issue tends to be boredom and being at a point where I'm waiting for something. I feel like I need to do something, and my brain says "eat." But I have to do other stuff so eating doesn't happen as much. If I'm not bored, I do eat, but not constantly. Enough to give me energy. Unfortunately, the Standard American Diet is crazy unhealthy, and food and celebrating life's moments go hand in hand. Which is not great if the food choices aren't great.

I've never liked carbonated drinks, but hubby does and doesn't love water, so he drinks lots of seltzer to get the water intake. When I do splurge (breakfast at the office, etc.), I take a small amount, like a quarter of a bagel or donut. I get to enjoy without feeling like my newfound health is destroyed.

Wow! You are doing amazing and I can relate to the sugar addiction. I lost 92 pounds last year and it is creeping back on with too much celebrating. Keep up the good work and have the small cone occasionally and not feel guilty about it. I know am dragging myself back off the sugar but struggle with the emotional eating on a daily basis. Hang in there!

Making changes one day at a time!

Today I am finding being home alone a BIG challenge. I just want to eat. I did overeat at lunch but I chose low calorie items, but it still is not good to feel like this. So I just needed to be here and be accountable for what I did and move on and STOP IT.

BarbaraS I do understand what you are saying about the ice cream cone problem. What I am trying to do this time around...is have that ice cream but a kiddie size cone. Just have a small portion and don't hate yourself for eating it. Enjoy and forget it. Maybe if you don't deprive yourself of every treat you will actually eat less and feel more in control.

Hi, Lisa, I'm new or might as well be because I don't keep up here. However, I'm not new to finding replacements to eating enough of the time to feel that I manage food pretty well these days. It has been an evolution but the first step was just seeing that life was actually harder when I overate a lot. Then I got willing to do even stupid stuff, like watching a lot of TV, or surfing the net, rather than eat. Even crying and sleeping are better than eating, in my book.

I don't think I need to completely avoid emotional eating to be managing well. That is basically a set up for me and for most humans. But I can have good habits that actually allow for limited extra eating. A foundation of reasonable meals that I can look back on and forward to has been key for me.

I tend to go on and on. It's part of my therapy, and I"m grateful Spark provides it. Don't be afraid to bypass my long posts when you see them, everyone!

Had a great week of experimenting with meal timing and meal contents. I know that sometimes a backlash of desire can follow a week like this and it always used to surprise me because I would be feeling so good. But I know now that it is natural to have the body try to swing back, and I also know it is perfectly possible to handle it differently from how I did in the past. That is what my prefrontal cortex is made for! It's just a habit to think I am helpless against desire. emoticon

Every day I get paid it has become a habbit to eat out as a treat. I need to replace that habbit and buy work out clothes every pay day instead of spend money eating out.

Hi, newbie here. I've always been an emotional eater, can't remember a time when food wasn't my comfort and best friend. I've spent several years in therapy coming to grips with my issues and have finally gotten my bingeing under control. I don't find myself at the fridge in the middle of the night stuffing whatever I can into my face anymore. And I've gotten better at not eating my emotions in general. I thought I was doing well. Then two major stresses hit within the past week and I can feel myself starting to crumble.

So I've come in search of support from people who understand what it's like.

Hi everyone...I read some of your comments. It helps to know that I'm not alone with the struggles of losing this weight and keeping it off for good. I have lost 100's of pounds if you count all the time I have lost them only to start putting back on to lose all over again. It's a vicious cycle . This past year I lost 108 but since the start of the year it is creeping back up. I know that the problem is my sugar addiction. I just can not get this under control. It is truly ridiculous! I go to the gym, work, but not as hard as I was during the summer and then I end up at the store or fast food place for a vanilla cone. What is wrong with me!

Sorry. Rant over. I will try again tomorrow.

Hello All, 20 points for the team today! I've been doing a terrible job...eating everything in sight. Ok. I filled my house full of healthy food but it's not enough. I'm lonely and I still eat way too much. I've been doing personal training at the gym and I'm gaining weight, ugh. Someone suggested to my blog that maybe I'm gaining weight because I'm building muscle. One can only hope...

Good luck to everyone here...I'll try to be stronger.

Happy Friday Eve!

I'm an emotional eater.....big surprise there, huh folks? But I know that I don't have to respond to emotional challenges by opening mouth and inserting potato chips.......well, at least my head knows.

Next week I'm scheduled for my second knee replacement and am really, really excited about it!! The right knee went very well and I'm so looking forward to getting a new left one.......I kept putting it off cause I didn't want to deal with the pain, but 5 months post op with the right one and life is sweet. But having new knees means I can't afford to let things go. Suddenly I feel like taking a walk! What a pleasant feeling!!

Richard you are doing great. Congrats on the loss. Yes, raw veggies are great vehicles for dips, I also use Belgian Endive to scoop.

I avoided over eating cake at a friends house yesterday. It was her birthday and to not draw attention to myself I took a piece and just had one small bite. Did you ever notice that when you say NO to something they all try and force it on you?
Maybe people feel like you should eat because they are all over eating. Don't know,don't care anymore..

When it was my daughters birthday we had various dips and soft cheeses.
Instead of having crackers together with these we had celery pieces.
Although its not much, it can all add up by the end of the night.
Also I avoided alcohol(empty calories) to a large degree.
As a result I had a slight weight drop the next morning

I went away for the weekend with friends and actually lost two pounds. I eat less when I am with people.
Having lots of healthy snacks is a great idea instead of sugary ones.

I went shopping and bought more fruits and veggies instead of snack foods. Now when I feel like a snack, I will eat something that is healthy for me but will first think about why I am hungry. Is something triggering me to eat?



I will do what I need to do in order to do what I want to do.

Hello. I just joined the group. I am a night time eater and I am hoping that this group will give me strength to control it. As of January 1st I seem to have it under control and have lost some weight too but it is always the same..... eventually I fall. Hoping I can hold it together and break this bad habit by sharing with this group. Yes, it seems there is always an event or someone pushing food at us. I am learning to take a small bite.

My husband and I went to the neighbor's for dinner last night and we had spaghetti with red clam/crab sauce. I ate a lot of salad before having the spaghetti I felt comfortably full but I had two large helpings of the spaghetti and sauce plus garlic bread. I did drink two bottles of water instead of having wine but it seemed like I had lost control and couldn't stop eating. Not sure what triggered it but I think it was because I was sitting across the room at the table and was watching the football game. Instead of paying attention to what I was shoveling into my mouth, I was fixed on the game.
Today is a new day and I will do better. No sense worrying about yesterday. emoticon



I will do what I need to do in order to do what I want to do.

Back again! I keep forgetting how much information is on SparkPeople and how it really helps if you work it. I am looking forward to continuing my weight loss journey amongst people who understand the struggle!

Hello,
This site helped me once before - so I'm back. It took me a few years to gain back what I lost BUT not I have to begin again. I'm looking for support and somewhere to pick up tips and gain motivation - which seems to have gone by the wayside. I forgot to bring my water bottle to work with me today - so I'm already behind! Going to get a cup of water from the cooler right now!

Keeping to my basic plan, which does allow for some leeway. Did not eat over a financial problem with a retirement program which took a few hours of time, and losing three credit/ATM cards in a couple of hours. Still baffled by that, but I don't know where else to look and have already ordered new ones, EXCEPT for the one I couldn't get to my account online on AND which didn't have a contact phone department open on Sunday. But worrying and eating won't keep anyone from using the card, and it's the banks money (after $50.)

I like that, and I'm doing better about dropping the mini candy bar back in the can. LOL those things are to easy to eat mindlessly but still better than a whole full sized one.

It does seem true that I can't control whether the impulses come or not. I can't stop impulses to eat, but I can choose to ignore them- or not. The impulses can't pick up the food!

I can relate, whenever I am anxious about money or really anything, I want to turn to food.

Got disturbing news about finances late at night on return trip from OOT, when I couldn't do anything about it. Had upset morning embarrassingly yelling at people on the phone over not being able to get internet access to accounts, then found out my work team was having a working-vacation meeting same day. I forced myself to go and to act especially sweetly to counterbalance how bummed I felt from my morning blow up. But I stuck to my general eating plan, which allowed for tastes and a chicken salad lunch- with only a third of the too-generous salad dressing serving- at Costco. Regular dinner.
