    Im sure theres a thread on this topic elsewhere but I couldnt find it so thought id start this one.
    My big problem over the years has definitely been comfort eating. When im bored/sad its the 1st thing that enters my mind and nothing will satisfy me until ive eaten enough to burst. While im eating the pizza/chips whatever, im thinking about what i can eat next. Not even enjoyin the food im eating. When u think about it like that it sounds absoltely mental! I hope to break this cycle by not restricting myself to any foods/diets. Just trying to eat 3 sensible meals and anytime i feel bored/sad ill come on this or go for a walk or to the gym or something. It has to stop. Becoming v.unhealthy.

    snap! its my aim at the moment to get to three healthy meals a day and then begin to cut the calories.

    I find things like reading good for occupying my mind. Also things like studying. I love to walk - shame the dark nights dont really permit it all that much.

    Goin'down,

    I agree it does sound mental when you put it like that but we all do it.

    I REALLY noticed this over the weekend, as did my OH.
    Saturday I went out with the dog and even did a bit of running (tiny bit) and a little dance work out at home. I was hungry because I'd done exercise, but not snacky or anything.
    Sunday I woke up on the wrong side of the bed and was very moody and bored all day. All I wanted to do all day sunday was eat eat eat!

    As lots of people on here say, nothing tastes as good as the feeling you get after a good weight loss!

    Aw that is v.true. Nothing compares to seein those numbers on the scale a bit smaller. Really brightens my day. Food only brightens my day for those few mins (or seconds!) that im eatin it!!

    I tend to find that exercise helps me. It motivates me so much with my food.

    At the moment my husband wont let me do any physical exercise regularly - although he did say the other night I could start to use my wii fit again. Maybe when he is at work nights/days I could fit 30/60 minutes in. Surely every little helps right?
