Attitude to me is something that I have never really paid that much attention to and that perhaps has been my prelude to failure. I have been known to have a short temper with some and then over the years I learned a type of passive-aggressive attitude. It's that type of passive-aggressive attitude that has lead to "emotional" eating. It's like "me" rebelling but taking it out on myself because I don't believe in causing other people pain. I have a sincere desire to not cause people to hurt like I have been hurt. But that in turn leads to a lot of baggage on my part.

So now I'm standing at the door to my warehouse of bad experiences, pain, heartache and trauma thinking to myself - Where do I start? How do I clean all of this STUFF out?! And WHERE THE HECK am I going to put it all??? I am out of room and my body obviously cannot handle it anymore and darn it I deserve to not have all the negative stuff dragging me down!

So I will continue another day! :)

    I think what I tend to do, is if I am walking (hopefully in a few months, running) as a workout, I really think about things. I go through what MY part in that could have been, and if there was something I could have done to change the situation. I would say 90% of the time, it was out of my control. So just work through it your best way, be it a journal, talking to yourself, anything.

    And the emotional aspect of weight loss is a HUGE thing.

    Hi Susie,
    What about a journal? Every time someone or something bothers you instead of having it on your mind write it in your journal.
    You articulated this well. I so understand you. I have and do go through the same thing. I am working very hard on where I spend my emotions and on whom.
    Keep working at it, don't give up. It takes time to find what works. Don't put too much on your shoulders at once. Give yourself one or a few goals or changes. Even if it is emotional not just diet and exercise.
