Hi and welcome to the team. You surely do have major stress in your life and my heart goes out to you. You're right that it's hard to break a pattern of emotional eating - I'm still trying. Being part of teams like this one really helps because you can put your feelings and struggles right out there and receive non-judgmental support, encouragement and motivation. I'm also a member of the Dealing with Depression team and between that team and Emotional Eaters I've gotten better with my emotional eating - not perfect - but better.
We all have different strategies we've learned or tried in order to break or minimize the habit so please post often and let us know how you're doing and how we can help. We'll be glad to share.
We're glad to have you with us on the journey to a healthier lifestyle!
