My last ditch attempt


Skinny Soon ?!
Hi everyone, it's been a month or two since I last posted as unfortunately I have been extreemly bad.

Put on loads in the two weeks over Christmas then went back in January and lost almost all of it in the first week. Then it all went to pot!

Does anyone have any tips on how to deal with emotional eating. I know I do it I just don't know how to stop myself.

Without wishing to sound "sad" my life has been pretty difficult up until I met my hubby 3 years ago. Since then it's been a dream, he makes me sooo happy and I've changed to a job I love with friendly and genuine work collegues.

Unfortunately January/February has always been a difficult time of year for me and although the feelings didn't hit me last year or the year before, they certainly have this year.

It's nothing I can put my finger on, I just feel really low and fed up the go and binge on chocolate biscuites, cake and puddings. It's not like I really have anything to be seriously miserable about. I just feel depressed. (I took anti depressants for around 3 years and managed to wean myself off them, I've no need to go back on them now)

This last week my mood seems to have lifted and I want to make a serious attempt to loose a further 3 stone before I go to Australia in May. Trouble is I've already wasted a month messing about.

Don't mean to sound like a moany old boot and I know it's only me that can do this but does anyone ever else often feel like this? and what do you do to stop the feelings taking hold until you could nearly eat the fridge itself, never mind what's in it!:)
wow, you have done really well so far, so you need to concentrate on that.

I am very much an emotional eater, but I have found that this diet has been wonderful as I know that I can't eat anything on SS and so I don't think about it. I might have a strop on, but it isn't gonna get me off track, I have a holiday in Sept with friends and that is my focus.

Maybe if you could focus on something like that, then it might help?

When it comes to emotional eating it's a really hard one, and I know how you feel.

Perhaps you can find something non-food related when you are feeling in need of some comfort - a nice bath or something?
You have done really well so far. At least you are admitting to yourself that it is now time to pull in the reigns. You have got such a reason to loose that weight for May. Just imagine how good you will feel 3 stone or more lighter. I am not really an emotional eater, I eat when I am bored.

Try putting a before picture on the fridge as a reminder of how far you have come and as a reminder that if you carry on eating the wrong things that will be where you will end up again.
