Welcome. You are beginning a journey that will bring you happiness. You just have to stick with it. It isn't always easy, but if you want it bad enough you have come to the right place. Spark People has opened a whole new dimension to my life. It has given me hope. I am slowly beginning to see good in myself. If you knew me you would realize how huge that is. My daughters and family are so happy I am here. I am not depressed, all the time! I have to constantly tell myself that I will not give up. No matter what. If I live my life alone, at least I want to love myself.

Welcome to the new members. I wish you well. I would like to emphasize to you that you do not need to be hard on your self when you mess up with your eating. Just go forward. This is a change in your lifestyle, not a diet. Not a win or fail thing, just going day by day.
That has helped me so much to not give up.

Wow. Congrats on losing 46 pounds. This is actually my first time on sparkpeople, but I know if I don't actively involve myself, I too will likly fizzle. Thanks for adding me as a friend. Does this work one way, or do I have to add you too? I haven't figured that out yet. I know that's how it works on facebook.

Hullo, hullo. My first day on Spark. My downfall is STRESS plus BREAD, or other bread-like goodness, like crackers or granola bars.

I am adding you as a friend!! emoticon back to Spark...I joined and fizzled too, then got back to it and I have lost 46 pounds. I had some serious emotional eating problems before I got back here and the EE team helped me a great deal as did the Spark website in general...and the support I have received from my Spark friends. So, I am here to support you and hopefully help get you off this emotional eating roller coaster! emoticon emoticon

Hi there. My name is Jeanette and I and definitely an emotional eater. I love to eat. Food has been a best friend since I was very young, especially sweet things like ice cream. However, I now realize why I eat so much and need to change my habits. It is challenging, but with this group's support I am hoping and praying for change.

I'm new. Started yesterday. I heard about sparkpeople on NPR. I was curious, so I stopped by, and so far I'm hooked. I know why it's so successful, because you don't have time to eat -- at least for a while as you navigate your way around the site. lol. There is so much support, and resources that it seems really easy to get lost. I'm pretty sure I've found the right team, because I am such the stress and anxiety eater. I binge at night when I start to stress about my kids, my job, my life, my home, my father, you name it...whatever the day may bring. Anyway, I'm Morgan, and I'm glad to be here. emoticon

Hi Everyone! My name is Elly (age 37) & I'm an emotional snacker! I have twin boys that have just turned 2 & still haven't shed my baby weight. Due to their prematurity, they have to eat high caloric food & I usually eat their left-overs. When I'm under a lot of stress at home, I also eat anything that I could get my hands on...somehow, I feel better when I do that probably b/c I'm distracting myself from the issues. I swear that my husband sabotages me b/c he always brings home tons of sweets. I'm really afraid of becoming diabetic b/c it runs in my family & I need encouragement to reduce the amount of sugar in my diet. I'm really looking forward to being involved in the EE team!

Hi,
My name is Janie and I have been away from Sparks for quite awhile. I lost 50+ pounds two years ago and have gained part of that back. My health took a turn for the worse for awhile and I was hospitalized twice for a week each time. I am on my way back to being healthy again, but I'm so over weight I can't really call it healthy, maybe healthier. I try to maintain a healthy diet by making better choices and logging my food. I too, am an emotional eater. It seems as if every emotion triggers the thought of food! It is encouraging to read your posts and how you deal with it. My exercise of choice is water aerobics. I was going at least 3 times a week until I got sick. I hope to start back again soon.

I read some of the entries on your team and I like what I see. I hope to become a valuable member who gives as much as she takes.

I will spend some time getting familiar with your topics and will post regularly.

Thank you for being here.
Blessings,
Janie

Hi Sparkies! I have been on Spark for 6 months and have been very successful...36 lbs gone! I recently began to really dig deep into why I have been overweight my whole life and it has to do with emotional eating! WHen I am stressed, tired, bored or anxious I tend to eat. Since I began my healthy journey I have gotten my eating under control but there are always flare ups and it usually has to do with emotional eating! I am ready to ditch this really quick! I am excited to have joined this group....I came across it by accident and it was the light bulb that needed to go off! Thank you it finally did !!!!

Hi everyone! This is probably like my 3rd time on SP. The biggest issue (reason why I gained all this weight in the first place) was due to emotional eating. I have always been active and ridiculously healthy when I'm not stressed out.. but when I start feeling antsy about something.. everything I know about being healthy flies out the window. I also eat when I'm bored. I also tend to graze on foods just because it's there. I hope to overcome this issue with SP and the EE team. I'm looking for a buddy to help keep me accountable!! emoticon

Hello there EE group!

I'm Norma and have been using this website for three weeks now. I found it on the android market as an app and was excited to find how much more was available through the website. I use my electronics daily and this helps me stay focused on eating clean and keeping up with exercise goals. I tend to eat when bored and have found that being "accountable" for calories definitely makes me think twice before consuming unnecessary calories. Even with alcohol, (mixed drinks have lots of sugary calories!) I have found myself refusing to drink more than one after adding those liquid calories to my daily totals! Well, I am always looking for support and buddies - so if you'd like please add me and keep in touch!

Eat clean and Burn those calories!!
Ferret ;)

Hi there. I am also new to this team and SP. I recently hit my high water mark, at 207 pounds. I have lost a little, and am now at 196. I have 41 pounds to lose. My weight fluctuates with my life. When I am angry or upset or a little stressed, I eat. I eat when I am bored too. When I get extremely stressed, suddenly I cant eat a thing. I am hoping to get my life back under my control.

Hello. I, too, am an emotional eater. My father didn't know how to show love other than with providing food and my mother had medical issues and wasn't always there so I learned at a young age that food was my best friend. I've just recently started reading Geneen Roth's books. In her new one, there is a line that says "Obsession gives you something to do besides having your heart shattered by heart-shattering events." I have a food obsession and it has kept me "safe" from alot of things but also has kept me overweight. I've lost weight in the past and I'm trying once again to make some changes. Prior to starting this I lost 25lbs but I still have 50 more that I would like to lose.

Hello everyone,
I have been on Spark People for a while, but have been unsuccessful in my weight loss because I am an emotional eater. I tend to snack when I am bored, or writing (I am in grad school). I look forward to learning from and with each of you.

Hello, I am new to the site. I have struggled with emotional eating for as long as I can remember. For many years I restricted my food intake severely. My anorexia lasted for many years even impeding my ability to have children. After therapy and much work I over came my anorexia only to become an over-eater. I gave birth to 2 beautiful girls and gained 80 pounds. My girls are now 5 and 7 and I have lost 43 pounds but can not seem to get below the 150 mark. I have joined this group because I tend to fluctuate between over-eating and starvation. I want to be accountable and aware of all I eat. I also want to be more accepting and loving to myself.
I have recently taken up exercising again and love it. I love the tools this site offers and I really look forward to the support and friendships to be built with this group.

Hello Everyone!
My name is Kate. I have came to the conclusion that I am an emotional eater this past year (my 1st year in grad school ironically haha!). I tend to eat when I am procrastinating (whether it is cleaning or writing a paper) and sometimes when I am anxious. I am 24-years-old, and I have 106 lbs to lose. I love meeting new people, so feel free to send me a message or comment on my wall :o)

Hello, I'm Rose, I've actually been a member of this team for quite a while, but just started following it again recently. I think I'm ready to admit that Food is my biggest obstacle when it comes to losing weight. I have been increasing my exercise over the past year and recently started P90X, but it always comes back to the food choices. I do fine if I am in a controlled setting, (dining at home, or eating my packed lunch) it's when I have choices that everything goes wrong. It's like an addiction, I know what the right choice should be then at the last minute I change my mind and order something totally unhealthy or end up grazing on snacks I don't even want, just because they are there. I am getting really frustrated with myself, because physically I am pushing myself so hard then I sabotage myself by eating unhealthy, high fat, high calorie foods. ARGH! I figured this was a good place to come for support and information, and was excited to see that is still a very active team.

The tragedy of life does not lie in not reaching our goals. The tragedy lies in not having a goal to reach. Take life by the horns and give it a good shake and make the most of every opportunity. ....... Peter Pearson --- Australia

Hey everyone! I'm 31, single, no children, and work as an instructor. I have at least 100 pounds to lose maybe more depending on how I feel at my goal weight. I've been a SP member for a long time but haven't been consistent with diet and exercise. I really want to have a more active lifestyle and not be scared about how others will react to me because of my weight.

I'm on day 2 and have also found this all so overwhelming but I plan to make it as simple as possible so that I don't drop out. I am not only an emotional eater, I believe I am addicted to food just like an alcoholic is addicted to liquor. I believe food can be an addiction.

Hi everyone, my name is Beth. I am just finding my way around all there is to see on this website. I believe this team is one for me because I feed every emotion I can think of...and occasionally even eat because I am hungry. Hopefully we can all help each other overcome this. I can't say what I crave most....sometimes sweet, sometimes salty, sometime greasy....and ALL of it on really bad days. I have to admit though that I am a Reece's addict. Sonic Blast with extra Reece's and no whipped cream in particular....

Hi my name is Caralee and I am a 55 year old nurse. I have struggled with emotional eating all of my life. I have learned to eat for every emotion. I joined Sparkpeople 14 months ago, but I don't use the site a completley as i need to. I have 10 beautiful grandchildren that I want to have the energy to really enjoy. My family means everything to me. I have made a lot of progress in the last year, but find that I still slip back. My worst time to eat is at bedtime. I am working on that. It seems that I am not that hungry at mealtime, but by bedtime my stomach hurts because i am hungry. I am also working on committing to exercise more. Weight loss is a journey. One day, one bite at a time.

Glad to know all of you!!

Hi I am Sheryn, like Jennifer I am an emotional eater. (Wish her a speedy recovery emoticon ) I find I can control my eating, I often record everything then till dinner time when I just keep eating after a dinner doesnt matter if I am full or not just keep going till I want to be sick (and often have been sick)I find it doesnt matter what I eat but find sugary foods set me off -jellybeans are a weakness.
That's why I am back and after putting 5 kgs back on and feeling "fat" again finding it hard to get back on the band wagon often it isnt boredom with me, it could be a biscuit offered and smoko or at the neighbours that I find hard to say no to. And also find it easier to grab take away on our way home from activities.
I am afraid my eating habits are rubbing off on my 9 yr old son, he is starting to eat after diner as well
Any ideas on how to curb this would be greatly appreciated

Hello! I'm Jennifer! I'm surprised I didn't see this group before, because I am most definitely an emotional eater. I just had surgery yesterday to remove my gallbladder, so I'm very limited on what I can do physically right now. That frustrates me and during the day I am bored, so I turn to food. I've always had problems with food...especially fast food b/c I'm single and so many times I have felt it to be easier if I just go "pick something up" instead of making a meal and having to eat leftovers for the next 4 days. Any advice, tips, etc. would be GREAT. Please just send anything to my inbox. THANKS SO MUCH!! emoticon

Hi...my name is Deb and I live in Massachusetts. Struggled for a really long time and I know I'm an emotional eater but I'm still learning how to deal with it. I've started writing down how I'm feeling when I think I'm hungry so I can get a better handle on things. I'm glad I found this team. I'd like to support whomever I can whenever I can and am looking forward to some support myself.

Hi all, I'm new here too. I can't believe I didn't see this team. Emotional eating is one of my biggest hurdles. In the last 18 mos, I've put on another 25lbs on top of what I already needed to lose after having to move in with my mother. She hasn't made it easy but I think we're at least to the point where we're all at least trying to stay out of each other's way.

Thankfully she'll be moving out soon and we're going to rent her house. I'm hoping it'll be the starting point to a healthier life.

Good to meet everyone.

I too was on Sparkpeople some time ago but didn't take my diet seriously. I am not only an emotional eater but I love food which maybe makes it twice as bad. You can do it though. I don't weigh anything but know the right amount to put on my plate. You can sit there and start thinking about food and the urge to eat gets stronger and stronger and before you know it your at the fridge or into something else. I know because I have been there many times. This is when willpower should kick in. The more you practice willpower the easier it gets. Also, when you get the urge to nibble, call a friend, take a quick walk, or get on your 'puter. Anything to take your mind off of food. I hope this advice helps you.
I am going to put you on a a friend and I hope you will accept. emoticon Pat

Enjoy life while you can and do stop and smell the roses.

HI EE!

I and my partner (We got married in June! A month and just about a week ago!) are both emotional eaters and both have been on Sparkpeople before and have returned.

We live in Baden-Baden Germany with our poodle and 2 cats.

I do one of two things, I either eat too much and of all thw wrong things when upset or stressed or I do not eat at all when stressed....

I have, and not too long ago had nothing but 2 cups of coffee with skim milk and 3 liters of mineral water with fizz during a stressful day in my job as a pastry/dessert chef.... In a 12 hour shift....

Not good for body or soul, but I also know my pattern is if I start eating when stressed then I rarely STOP before eating way too much of really bad foods.....

I'm looking for support for me, ideas to help my very frustrated partner with gaining control of not good eating habits, and how I can have easy and ready made foods to help combat the emotional eaties that we both have!

Thanks for the welcome

Kelly

Hey! My name is Hayley. I'm 18 and about to start college. I've had a lot of problems with emotional eating in the last couple years. I finally feel like I'm getting somewhere, but I still have problems with it. I know we can all do it though! emoticon

Hi my name is Natasha. I have been on SparkPeople for a while but didn't serious about my eating habits until January of this year. I've been pretty constant in controlling my eating but just yesterday I got upset and frustrated and ate way too much. I am looking forward to working with the team and hopefully we can help each other reach our goals.

Hi, I'm Jessica. I joined SparkPeople in June and am still getting my sea legs. I have good days and bad days. The eating is slowly getting under control (although I still have a weakness for popcorn) and I'm trying to get better about walking. I suppose I've just got to take it one day at a time.

Hi, I'm new to SparkPeople - just been on about a week and a half. I ate emotionally today for lunch. I did knowing full well what I was doing. I don't know how to stop this. I'm way more susceptible to it - ahem - around that "time". I'm glad to have found y'all!

Hi Karen! emoticon
This is such a great team. I feel confident that you will find the support you need. Sounds to me like you are doing well with learning spark. You are using the tools and the message boards, and getting ready to start your spark page. These are all the things I would recommend for a new member. Take your time explore. I've been a member for a while now, and I'm sure there are still things I haven't done yet. Have fun. Best wishes!

Hi, My name is Karen and I am new to this team. I joined Sparks just over a week ago and have been exploring and learning as I go. I am definitely an emotional eater and hope to find ways to battle the problem. It is taking me time to learn to really use the site and all it offers but its an adventure doing so. :) I am not a computer guru so these things take me some time. Next week I hope to get my sparks page up and looking as I want. Currently I use the nutrition tracker, learned to set up the 10,000 steps fitness tracker and figured out sparks points. Its been fun. Hope to get to know you better.....Have a happy and healthy day.

I there. I am Linda. Actually began using Spark almost two weeks ago. Am really happy with everything - the tools, the people, the teams. I found the welcome to EE this morning. Perfect timing! I haven't had a real emotional eating day for a while, but today is it! Bad storms in our area last night kept my dogs up and restless, hens bad nights sleep for me. So I crave coffee with cream and sugar and snackwell cookies for breakfast! I guess that it could be worse. At least, because I couldn't sleep, I got up and did 20 minutes on my elliptical. The ying and yang to it all! Lunch will be back on the healthy track, it's just the breakfast that will be bad. Will be keeping in touch with you all in the future and thanks for your wonderful support. Second weigh-in day tomorrow - keep that in mind and fingers crossed!

Hi everyone. New to team. Just starting to figure out some of the things eating at me that have had me eating too.

Hi all! I started with Spark in the fall of 09 and together with Spark People and some great real life friends, and some determination I lost about 25 pounds. Then people lost their drive at work and so did I (I can be a big follower!!!). Been trying to get back on the wagon but have gained about 5 pounds back!

Now I've moved with no new friends to work out with, a fridge at my private disposal (Hubby & Kids still haven't moved out with me). I'm eating too much and not exercising enough! Of course I'm eating because I'm lonely, bored, and stressed (EMOTIONAL EATING!!!!!) I would love some support as I try to get it back. So far, I've tracked a day of food and plan to go for a walk after saying goodnight to my children on the phone.

Thanks for listening! I need all the help I can get!
