I love Geneen Roth's approach - I haven't seen that quote about habit... Interesting to think of emotional eating as a habitual response.

" My basic belief about emotional eating is that it is possible to untangle it, to get to the root of it. It is possible to trust yourself if you begin to treat yourself with curiosity and kindness and a willingness to understand what you're doing with food." - GENEEN ROTH

Good one! Thanks for sharing. It does help to not feel like you are being deprived of something you enjoy. Like ice cream for me. emoticon Balance, baby!

Wow, that is interesting and that is where I would like to be. I think food still has far too much emotional impact in my life - I'm scared to try that!
