Welcome Marty. Just stay focused and remember this is a lifestyle change, not a diet. You'll be living healthy the rest of your life if you stay with Spark People.

Holler anytime you might want some info or just want to chat.

Enjoy your new life...

I am an emotional eater who can go off on binges. I am working to control that by remembering that one day at a time is all I can do. Evaluating my feelings that cause me to want to eat. Asking "Why are do you want to eat? Acknowledging that I do not want to eat because I am hungry. I am on a journey to change my behavior. I must deal with the reason(s) and the emotion(s) because they will still be there if I eat or do not eat.

As an emotional eater, I know the comfort I have gotten when eating to relieve stress, pain or sorrow. I had also gotten into the habit of overeating to celebrate a good event in my life. The key is to take it one day at a time. If I fall off the wagon today, I must get up, dust myself off and get back on the road to success. All I can do is take it one day at a time. The past is yesterday and cannot be changed. The future is tomorrow and can only be affected by what is done today.

Sometimes I have to reset the counter to Day 1 and start again. The key is to reset the counter. Over time I will have to reset the counter less and less. Before I know it I will have achieved a lifestyle change.
