No problem. I found over the holidays I was eating because I was bored, and I have never done that! I couldn't believe it. Not good. I walk a lot every day and take the stairs if any floor I need to reach is from 1-6 levels. I don't think it is worth it to wait all that time for an elevator, when I can reach the floor under my own steam before the elevator even arrives!
You need to find a hobby or two to keep you busy and active. What do you like to do? Is there a neighbor who can help you create a hobby, maybe involve kids, hubbies etc? Is there a pool in the area where you can take aquafit classes, either alone or with a friend? I have always found that I prefer to take a class on my own because then I'm not left hanging or disappointed if my friend doesn't want to go one night. I have taken many, many classes over the years on my own. I have made new friends, or just enjoyed the time for myself!
Sometimes if I find I am eating due to lack of anything else to do, I clean! How boring is that, but it keeps me away from the fridge. Physical stuff like vacuuming, cleaning the tub, sweeping etc. Once I'm done the job, I feel very satisified not only have I kept away from the fridge, but I've done something physical too, and it shows in the house! You can't really beat all that.
All the best.
