I just gained 2 lbs and now I know what caused it. I've been worried all day. Thank you for posting this article. Report
Thank you for this very useful article. It is detailed enough for people to actually be able to take the steps. I think I will print out a copy, and have it nearby with a notebook, so I can write out my responses. Report

This article targeted some issues for me right now! I especially needed this kind of help today, thank you very much. I am making a little(wait! breathe! think!) reminder card for myself to carry and use for triage when those issues pop into my world. Sparkpeople--helping me save my own life one notch at a time!

You hit the nail right on the head! I found a free journal to use just for this purpose. It's called Quate. It helps me to track both what causes the emotion and how I overcame it and then reminds me of how I did this every time I have the same reaction. Your article gives me even better ways to overcome these reactions. Thanks Report
Excellent article. I have often found that a lot of techniques I use to stop myself from emotional eating just delay the problem and it either emerges at another time, or emerges in a different form. These techniques don't overwhelm me, but do cut directly to the cause, and help turn this kind of thinking into something more positive. I have added this to my bookmarks bar! Report
Dear Coach Dean, What a wonderful article. Thank you so much. Many wonderful tips I will keep in mind and practice as well when I need to take back control. -Elayne Report
I have always known that emotional eating from the way my husband often treats me defeated my diet attempts and kept me running to food for comfort. But I recently got the book 'The Verbally Abusive Relationship' and it has opened my eyes to why these things happen now and again...and how to deal with them. Tonight we had another episode and rather than run to the refrigerator, I held a mirror up to him about his behavior and asked him to choose if we were going to cooperate or butt heads. THIS website and this book have given me the confidence to think that this time I can be successful. Report
Thank you so much for this article. I am one of those people who try to help others and then take the world upon my shoulders if things don't work out as they should. Very helpful. Report

Thanks Dean,

Again you soprise me , sometimes I think you know me better than I??!!

This article is what I needed now, and a problem that, trying to solve it I have read many books, But never has been so clear and summarized , just to the point,it has never sinked in so well. How can you do that? In one little article explain the problem , causes, together with the solution.
You are magic!! Wisdom becomes you! If I was in USA, I would have definitly gone to your practice.
