Thank you for sharing these suggestions. I have gotten off track and I will use these suggestions to help me get focussed again. The writing and praying should really help. I haven't been praying about my lapse into night time eating and the need for self-control.

WHEN I AM UPSET I EAT, WHICH MAKES ME FEEL EVEN WORSE. WHAT CAN I DO?


#1 TURN TO GOD FOR COMFORT

Read the bible, watch a religious DVD or TV program.
Sit down and have some alone time with God. Ask God to comfort you with his strength. Even listening to christian music can comfort us and bring us to God.

#2 DIVERT YOUR ATTENTION TO SOMETHING ELSE

Call a friend or relative, take a walk, or do a hobby like scrap booking or clean. Go see a friend, or go to a movie, take a drive. Do anything but eat.

#3 IF TEMPTATION WINS EAT A LOW CALORIE SNACK

Choose to eat a piece of fruit, yogurt, or frozen yogurt, a small smoothie, or a salad with low calorie dressing.

#4 WRITE DOWN AN ACTION PLAN
Take time to create a plan that will work for you the next time you get upset & THEN DO IT.

#5 MAKE A LIST OF HIGH AND LOW RISK FOODS
Make two columns, one high risk, another one that is low risk. The foods that you love and are fattening, and also those foods that you don't have much control over, will go under high risk. Foods that are good for you and you like will go under low risk. If you can't think of any healthy that you eat, write down foods that you would be willing to eat. Eat those foods, instead of the high risk foods.

#6 IF ALL ELSE FAILS DON'T BEAT YOURSELF UP!!!
Forgive yourself and move on. Take this time to write down what you will do differently in the furure. There will be a next time unless you live in a bubble, except this time you will be more determined not to turn to comfort food.

emoticon pray, emoticon emoticon activity,
emoticon if you must eat, eat something healthy,
emoticon write down an action plan

NEVER, NEVER, NEVER, GIVE UP!!!!
