why do I keep putting so much food into my mouth? I think I've become a comfort eater. I'm tired, so bored by my job, angered everyday by a long difficult commute on public transport. No time and too tired to do anything much between getting home and going to bed. Stopped making meals weeks ago and now just shove crap down my throat. Half a packet of biscuits with a coffee for my evening meal - that's becoming normal. I threw my big clothes away and now can't get into the ones I have left comfortably. No money to buy new ones. Hating the flab that I can see and feel, so much.

oh dear

2 weeks to try and get some semblance of normal eating back before the excess of xmas. I don't want to be ungrateful, but I DO hope no one has bought me food or alcohol this year....

I MUST be stronger than this.

    I think we all get this way at times. I know I am right there as well. It is winter time and we want comfort foods more then conveince foods. I had been eating crap to trying to make healthy choices. WE can do this take it one day at a time and one step at a time.

    emoticon I feel like I am in a similar place job wise. Maybe resetting to do the Spark quick start might help. Personally I am focusing on water and calories, exercise will be next weeks challenge.

    Take care emoticon

    It's a difficult time of year. Cold, depressing because of the lack of daylight, everything seems to close in and scrappy eating becomes the norm. I'm finding the same, finding the motivation to cook for myself is very hard to come by, and I'm retired! Maybe try to limit the damage and tread water for a while, then attack it again when the days get longer.

    your feelings are getting the better of you. first thing i'd try, if you only work 5 days a week, is make and freeze dinner for the rest of the week on the weekend. then you will have it ready when you get home, instead of the biscuits. that will give you some control over your life to start with. other things will flow from there.
