Hi guys, im a known emotional eater You would think knowing what i do wrong would make it easy to stop but it doesnt. In 2008/2009 i joined minimins and through lipotrim i lost a wopping 5 stone. I felt and looked the best i ever had. In nov 2009 i gave birth to my second child and gained almost two stone. I joined sw and was working hard to lose it again, it was coming off slowly but i was pleased. In march 2011 my brother was shot whilst on duty in afghanistan. two weeks later my uncle died unexpectedly at the young age of 40 and two weeks after that my mother in law died from illness. These events took a massive toll on me and my family and in the subsequent months that followed i ate myself into oblivion.
in July 2012 my very supportive partner of ten years proposed to me The ultimate goal i needed to lose all this weight i had gained. however in December, 5 days before christmas my partner crashed his brand new car. Thankfully he was ok but the financial fall out has left us in a terrible state. The car has been in and out of the garage (we cant afford to get rid/or be without it as he needs it for work) and we totally depleted our wedding fund having to postpone the date to 2015.
Just when we think we have possibly had our fill of bad luck the engine failure (that we have paid nearly £2000 to correct) is back again and we had to be towed to the garage last night. i feel like screaming!! Arghhhhhh!!!!!!!! We've used all our wedding fund, postponed the date and its still not working and whats more we're probably gonna end up taking the "specialist" garage to court!!
This time ive started my weightloss again for the last time and i refuse to ruin myself with my emotional issues. Losing weight isnt hard when you do it right and i know how to do it right but i seem to get pulled down by all my emotional stresses and get stuck in a destructive rut!!
Im sorry for spilling my life story and i know to some these problems are small fry. I try daily to remind myself that there are people worse off who are terminally ill or have lost a child and try to thank my lucky stars that me, my partner and my children are safe and well but sometimes i just get dragged down with it all. I suppose what im asking is, are there any other emotional eaters on here and if so how do you stop yourself? I need to do it this time. please help me xx
