I try to get some kind of distraction to see if I am really hungry or just bored. Sometimes I go for a walk, or call a friend. If after a few minutes I no longer think I need something to eat then it was just a craving or boredom not real hunger.
Best wishes as you move through the challenge emoticon

I never consider myself as a stressful eater, but last week found myself grabbing an ice cream bar and more...after a stress situation. I never noticed that beffore...

Jackie I'm a Halloween baby but many years ago.

5'1.5" - I shrunk from 5'4"
Summer: Minesota
Winter: Arizona (as of Dec. '08)

Personal goal is to weigh in 159 by the end of March 2017. I did not make my previous goal so must do better...I ACHIEVED THE GOAL OF REACHING 151 IN MAY 2013. A LOSS OF 37 POUNDS! Summer of 2014 I gained 10 pounds of it back while traveling to the BVI's and Ireland so I have set a new goal for 2017 to be back to below 155.

I quit smoking over 25 years ago, and remember I chewed alot of gum and did gain about 10 lbs. But it doesn't have to be cigarettes; this past weekend I did ALOT of damage to myself by eating all kinds of chocolate (yeah, Easter didn't help much). I was stressed and depressed about a certain personal situation, but now it's Monday, time to put it behind me and get back on track. emoticon

And may I just say, I still remember how HARD it was to quit smoking and STAY that way; I remember quitting several times before it finally stuck. This too shall pass. I wish you the best. emoticon

Now that the weather is getting nicer, perhaps we will find it easier to go
outside, for a walk, and some fresh air...
I find that serves to relieve my stress !

I really appreciate all your help. The problem is I knit, crochet, bead and do counted cross stitch as well as read and spend time on the internet. I haven't found anything I can't put down to feed my face. I am going to try the water, short walks (that's all I can do right now) and trying to distract myself. I have been cooking a bunch of brussel sprouts and keeping them in the refrigerator so when I am going crazy I can just grab a couple of those. That is just how crazy I get but it seems too work and add vegetables to my diet. I also used to shout "I need cigarette" and it would all go away.

Do something (non food related) with your hands and your mouth. Reading a book. Crocheting (or knitting) Making something for someone else's need. You can do it!

I have never smoked in my life, but since I have been out of work, I seem to wander around and just eat anything in sight. I think it is boredom and frustration over not having a job in my case.

Quit in 04 still at times I have the urge,I find that a glass of water works for me. The hand to mouth thing I guess. A friend has a tooth pick in his mouth all the time. Hope this helps.

Today is the frist day of the rest of your life make it count.

Will try this. Anything, sometimes it is so bad I find myself stuffing my face and don't remember where I got the food.

I quit smoking about 12 years ago so I do know those urges. I also get worked up when there are stresses or situations that I can not fix or control. When they get bad, I go for a short walk, play video games, work on a craft, find an old music video on the computer and rock out and if all else fails, get a hard candy. Does not work every time, but if I distract myself, it makes the duration shorter and less damaging.

I discovered today that what I thought was a sweet tooth is just urges to eat! I didn't have anything sweet and I was going crazy but I had some cooked spinach in the fridge so I ate that (Yes they are that bad). I think this has something with the cigarettes, or lack of them but I quit for four years before and had the same problem. Please, is anyone else going through this? Is there anything I can do? Some days I just walk the house and eat everything in sight.
