    I need to stop eating, but I just cant seem to break the bond! Im fine during the day but its at night when my son has gone to bed that I find myself stuffing my face and saying "il start again in the morning"
    I have to get the remaining 4 stone off by end of September but I just cant see myself getting any further to goal!
    Im very much an emotional eater....when im happy I eat, sad I eat, stressed, confused, angry, upset, excited I eat!

    Help?!!

    Hi

    which plan are you on? I too have been the major emotional eater, it has been my first week and on day 4 i had a bad day at work and instantly wanted to go and comfort eat. I felt dizzy and light headed too but made myself drink more water and i added a meal from the SS+ options.

    Evenings and weekends are my worst times, as other people have said on here have you thought about splitting your shakes up so that you have them more often? Or perhaps moving up a plan to help you?

    If you are managing ok during the day then your head is in the right place, the goal you have is easily achievable, just take it one day at a time and congratulate yourself on doing so.

    You CAN do it :)

    also i meant to say to try and find something to occupy yourself on an evening after your son has gone to bed, reading mags, surfing the net, whatever takes your fancy i find that occupying my mind stops me from thinking about food, as boredom is another reason that I would normally snack on carb filled stuff.

    Good luck, keep posting for support

    I think it's a good idea to add a meal if you're on ss. So do ss plus. My cdc says there's not much in the difference in the losses and at least you can look forward to a small protein based meal.

    Tell those foodie demons on your shoulder to go away. Have some mint tea perhaps or split your cd meals in 2 so they last longer.

    Good luck, you can do it xxx

    when i was doing the 810 plan i was finding i was starting to cheat a little, since i have gone up a plan to the 1000 and eating fruit i have had no intentions to pick at food, maybe going up a plan or in troducing some food could be an option

    You've just decribed me exactly (and I suspect most of us on here)

    What you need to do (as do I) is realize that CD or any other diet is just a tool to get you srated on path, long terms success and happiness in regards to your weight/body is going to need a complete reprogramme of your mind.

    After doing CD many times, doing hypnosis and 6 months with a shrink, I still haven't cracked it, but I am atleast much more aware of my issues and have a plan of how to resolve them. I suggest a starting point of readin the artcles in this thread http://www.minimins.com/slimming-wo...g-restarters-but-i-think-its-interesting.html

    they are very insightful and will 'speak to you' I guarantee. I have also just purchased NLP for Dummy's book, which I have only just started, but again it starts to make sense of things and gives you some hope that you can change.

    Finally have a look at Mike's website www.thedietguy.co.uk

    Mike practices NLP and it's what 'cured' him of a 20 yeard battle with his weight - lots of really useful stuff on there

    Good luck

    P.S The fact that you acknowledge and are aware of your emotinal dependency on foos is a big step on the way to solving it

    Plumjuice, I know exactly how you feel:cry:Have you thought of doing a higher plan ss plus or 810?
    If not go for a walk, come on here, have a bath etc. Just distract yourself:)
    I just got to day 7 can't believe it. 100%..but have been tempted so many times but I have written myself two post it notes...one how I feel now:wave_cry: horrible etc and number two why I want to do this.
    Stay strong
