Hi Lynn, sorry to hear about your sad news. I have been there in the last couple of weeks as my dad died. Its tough - and really tests your resistance to emotional eating. I just kept thinking when I was tempted to binge out,
"how is that chocolate going to stop me missing him exactly"
I am sad....not hungry - so tears are ok, chocolate not so great!
Take your comfort from those around you that love and care for you - not from Cadbury's or Walkers or whatever your particular favourite is.
