The stalling tatic really works for me! Also, just staying out the kitchen after dinner because my downfall is night time eating.

This is a great article. I'm a "bored" eater and if I can focus on something else I will usually forget about the snacks.

I wish I would have read this yesterday. After increasing my activity successfully for a few days last night I thought I would make this awesome looking recipe for a dessert. I went wild and out of control over these little cups of yogurt and fruit mixed with brown sugar. It was awful. I ate all four I had made and afterwards wondered what had happened.

Thanks for this! I am constantly fighting my emotional side and the last few days I have been losing the battle. But after readign this I feel renewed to keep fighting.

Thanks Dean! I saved this article to favorites!

I have been fighting this battle for the longest time. My weak will power has been no match for the "Beast". My weight started rising, my self esteem started falling, I gave up on myself and accepted defeat believing I would never be able to win my weight battle.

Dean, you have given me new hope, encouragement and a strategy to be victorious!

This is a great article. I am going to print it and put it near my PC, on my refrigerator. Excellent advice.

Wow. I just blogged about this the other day, almost in tears. What timing! I wrote about the fact that I feel I'm in some heavy weight battle, losing, falling. But I culminated my blog with my own personal 'Over-Eating Action Plan' which had a few things-to-do this article mentioned. This is solidifying that I'm doing the right things. I like thinking of the emotional eating episodes as "a beast" just as afraid of me as I am of it, or as "a child just awoken from a nightmare" in need of quick comfort. It paints the picture that there's an end in site through such turbulent times. That vision helps a great, great deal...

As someone being treated for Depression this is something I fight with. This article is a great start towards working on emotional eating.

I love the tactics. It makes me feel like I am doing something. That's a feeling I find powerful and motivating.

I just lucked on this article right after I gave the Beast control! Thinking of a best reminds me of the child with nightmares being comforted by a parent. I had childhood nightmares that still haunt me at times, and now that I can use this analogy I think I can bring up enough imagery to defeat the Beast. Thanks for a great article.
