  • I don't think this article applies to all emotional eating.
    After losing my mom last December, i find myself trying to keep busy. I even took 3 summer classes to continue to keep myself busy. But with those classes over... I find myself cooking or snacking on the foods my mom and i always enjoyed.
    I don't want to face the "reality" of it because the reality is i lost half my family on that day. And the last real family member i have is a 15hr drive away, my sister, who is dealing with this equally as bad as i am.
    Sure, i know my mom wouldn't want me to feel this bad and i try to have good days. But at the end of the day, i am even more sad that my efforts to feel better haven't really worked. - 8/31/2008 3:14:26 PM
  • I would like to share this with my weight loss group next time it's my turn to lead. Do I need special permission for that? Over the last 2 weeks I have toured countless nursing homes trying to come up with the right one for my mom. This is important, something that I have to get right. I'm printing the article to have close at hand.

    Thank you. - 8/31/2008 1:42:15 PM

  • Great article I will share with my weight loss group. The more understanding I have the better able I am to continue my own successful weight loss maintenance. - 8/31/2008 10:34:52 AM
  • I've come to accept that food is fuel for the body, and I want to put in premuim, whole grains, fresh fruits and veggies, and lean proteins, not unleaded cakes, fries, or sodas. - 8/31/2008 9:11:26 AM
  • Excellent article! A lot of the best tips fall under "Minute One", which is a good way to deal with a lot of life, not just with emotional eating, but with any time where you feel yourself getting swept away with emotions. It's a very "Buddhist" perspective. - 8/31/2008 8:03:07 AM
  • I finally realized that emotional eating is really my biggest problem. I usually do GREAT until I get home. This is a FANTASTIC article; I wrote down the highlights to put on my frig to remind me to do some of these things when I want to gorge. Thank you!

  • I normally just add good articles to my "favorites" list. I printed this one to keep in front of me! - 4/13/2008 12:59:06 PM
  • This is one of the best articles on the subject I have read. Short, pointed and very wise. It has just saved my Easter weekend for me. I was already stessing about a meeting I have to attend next Tuesday. At that meeting I have to say something, I know will not be accepted easily. Now I feel quite calm. I am telling a necessary truth. If the people get bothered by that I shall simply wonder what is wrong with their attitude. I won't feel guilty. Thank you. - 3/22/2008 7:46:33 AM

    I'm the type of person that will rarely get off track on a diet, or what I like to call a lifestyle change. Thoug when I do I just get so mad at myself and think "ok, well now I can eat what I want, whenever I want". Reading this article has made me realize that it's ok to treat yourself, but theres's a line you shouldn't cross. I now know where that line is, and if I see it comming, I know exactly what to do and when to do it - 2/27/2008 8:03:54 PM
  • Good article, the tips are great, wished I had read this a month ago, but glad I have it now. - 2/27/2008 3:07:28 PM
  • Wow! This was awesome. I'm sending a copy to my mom because I know it will help her, too. I might also add that I couldn't help thinking about other problems I've dealt with recently regarding stress. These helpful hints don't just apply to eating habits. Thanks! - 2/27/2008 12:06:46 PM
