2 problems I need your help with please My husband works away quite often. Usually 2 days a week but it can be anything up to a week at a time, with him only being back at weekends. I suffer terribly from emotional eating - namely when i'm lonely. I have tried distraction but need some ideas on how to get my brain into gear and not need comforting with food. Also Another problem i have is rewarding myself with food when i get to a goal. I have tried non food treats but nothing seems to satisfy like a bar of chocolate or some other carbohydrate laden food. How can I get my brain around this?
