    Sorry for the moan but sure some of you have been there and wondered what you'd say.
    I've been in tears most of the afternoon wanting to eat. I cannot imagine the evening without eating as it's the only thing that calms me down and makes me feel happy (albeit temporarily, I know). I do understand about finding other things to do to deal with the emotional pain, and that's something I've been able to do in the past, but at the minute I feel so close to giving up, even though I know I'd just feel worse and not have any hope either. It's like that doesn't matter, because eating is a matter of emotional survival and at least I'll get through if I eat. I just feel so, so terrible.

    i felt the same yesterday and really felt like it was the end of the world (and i haven't even got to the end of week 4 yet) so stropped off to bed, had a cry then went to sleep.

    woke up feeling SO much better this morning but felt wobbly again this evening - it really is just one day at a time and you know you can do it - as we all can - keep logging on for support x x x we know how it feels

    :eek:I'll tell you what will make you feel worse... eating.

    You'll be so sorry you did it. Specially if it's something really fattening...

    It is like torture when you know you can't have anything, have a cup of black coffee or a peppermint tea when you feel like that, and do something to take your mind off it. Going for a shower works for me.
