    Thats a good post. Something to do with boosting your self esteem or how to control your emotions. Susan Jeffers writes some good stuff. Claire x

    Thanks Lily.

    I don't know about anyone else but I feel this time that I realy need to address the reasons why I do this. Last time I lost weight I got down to a size 8 and now I am an 18 again, I know I can lose the weight but now I need to tackle the eating, I know the maintenance steps are supposed to help with this but it is not that I don't know that things are bad it is that I convince myself that I "need" or "deserve" them or any other excuse I can come up with.

    Try looking for books on CBT (cognitive behavioural therapy) this is used in LL groups to look at why we over eat and helps us to manage our triggers etc
    CBT for dummies may be a good one

    Thanks SurreyStar, I thought of possibly going for some CBT, I will have to look into it.
