    how does everyone cope with not using food for comfort?
    i am having my biggest test at the moment- about a week ago i found out one of my cousins was pregnant and today ive found out another cousin is pregnant, i am happy for them but everything i've pushed to the back of my mind just comes flooding back again.
    I have 1 daughter who is 7 who i am so grateful for but i've also had 2 miscarriages which i reckon was because i was overweight as i already have a healthy child but i soooooo want another and im 31 and single and it's just so depressing, this is my biggest test trying to be happy for everyone and not turning to food for comfort.
    how do you deal with things like this?

    I'm sorry to read you've suffered two miscarriages. I know how hard it is to want a baby and see others have them (my brother in laws girlfriend had a baby last week - hes barely a kid himself and we couldnt seem to conceive)

    Food has been a great comfort in the past but I tell myself that the reason i'm on this journey IS to get us a baby. If I eat then I am just putting that time further back. I busy myself with other things, if its late i'll go to bed or because i'm on SW - i'll have free food

    Hi, sorry to hear you are having a hard time. Like you I am a comfort eater but this time I'm determined to shake the weight and change my attitude to food.at the moment I am telling myself I am not to eat when angry even fruit and I write down everything I eat and also keep a bit of a journal on my thoughts on the day...its quite liberating to see when I'm being good and its been a rough day. Bit of soul cleansing. Hang in there x

    thanks for the support, my day just seems to go from bad to worse as i've just found out my dad needs a pacemaker, but it kind of puts things into perspective, i'm managing not to comfort eat although i do have some points left so i will have some supper later.
