There are lots of things I do, but this past week these have been most helpful:
Asking for a hug
Cry if I need to
Write out my feelings
"What is something healthy I can do right now?" and then do it, right then
Call a friend and ask them to talk about their day, so I can get out of my own head
Do something kind for someone else and keep it to myself (no bragging)
Clean the one dirtiest thing in my house
Play with kids
You can do it, I believe the more you look for the solution, the more solutions you will find.
going for walks, journal and expressing my feelings has helped me.
water with soluble fiber in it fills me up
i tell myself I will take a 10min walk and eat after if I am still hungry, I never am
I spend time on my hobbies
I read a book
I log onto to SP
I play with one of the dogs or take them on my walk with me
I decide to get some yard work done
Turn on the radio, blast it and sing and dance myself silly!
journaling really helps when I have a sever emotional event rather than just daily stress
I take my son outside/to the park to play
I clean something
i rearrange furniture

“Do not let your fire go out spark by irreplaceable spark... Do not let the hero in your soul perish in lonely frustration for the life you deserved and have never been able to reach. The world you desire can be won. It exists.. it is real…. It is possible…. It’s yours. “
Ayn Rand (Atlas Shrugged)
Listening to music that pumps me up - dancing to it when no one is watching. Doodling. Going for a walk. Staring at the birds in my back yard. Deep breathing.

Maybe this has been covered, probably it has - but I am wondering: what are your best non-food related coping mechanisms? As the weight has started coming off, I've been dealing with some serious emotions and issues. In the past, I'd just stuff them deep down inside by stuffing myself with nachos. Clearly, that's not working any more!
So, anyone have some good methods?
