Thank you for an excellent article with real, useful steps for overcoming emotional eating. I've saved this so i can read it when I am starting to feel like I'm spinning out of control.

Thank-you for the informative article. Sometimes we need to step back from the situation, do some deep breaths, & get focused & then tend to the matter when our mind is clearer.

This is so me. Anytime I get upset or stressed I eat to deal with it. So So wrong. I am now going to put these guidelines into practice.

I have been told for as long as I can remember, by both friends and family, that I am too sensitive to other people's opinions. When I read this article, I saw myself reacting negatively to comments that might be directed at me, but not necessarily critical. Having respect for myself is something I am still working on, after a rough marriage and divorce. Thank you Dean for the reminder.

Dean, you are like my virtual meditation teacher. Thanks for reinforcing all of the things that I'm learning outside of SP. The things you write about really make a difference in my life.

I especially find helpful the suggestion to be present where you are by taking a moment to notice your surroundings -- seeing shapes and counting colors. That's fabulous. Sometimes I feel so overwhelmed, and trying to take deep breathes or meditate doesn't work for me because my mind is overloaded. I'm going to try this. Thanks for a great article!!

Great article! I've printed it out and am going to keep it handy for the next time I feel overwhelmed, guilty, or whatever and starting to reach for that box of sugary cereal!

I absolutly enjoyed this article. I tend to be the one that is stressed out A LOT and I'm always worring about things. And when I do get stressed out, the first thing I do is go for food. This article was VERY inspirational to me! Thanks!!

Loved this article. My husband is in Afghanistan right now, and I'm already constantly stressing about that, so the tiniest little issue on top of that makes me go into full blown panic attack. The tips here were super useful, and I'll definitely be saving this information!

Great article! It really made me stop and think about my problem areas and why I react the way I do. I need to stop and put things into perspective in any given problem situation before I start obsessing about it and then start eating because things seem so terrible and out of control.

This is a great article. I'm feeling really down right now and was tempted to go and overeat, but this will help me to focus on what's really going on and not let a few bad thoughts destroy all of my hard work.
