    Marriage, divorce, death, children..... the list can go on and on. I think I'm with the majority. Eat when happy, eat when sad and then anytime in between!

    Anything slightly stressful makes me eat. Comfort eating is definitely my vice.

    Don't get married then you won't get divorced....and won't put on the weight.....although what is that joke about divorcing and loosing 12st of unwanted fat...it's called the husband!!!.....all a bit synical though....I'm sure just as many of us put on weight when we first meet 'the one' because we are so happy.....some of us are just built that way......I am happy to eat for any mood!

    You can choose to comfort eat and feel better for a min or two or you can choose that you WILL be the weight you want and use the cr*p as a motivation to get there.

    One reason why women put weight on in the first year of marriage is that they match their portion sizes with those of their husband.
