Are you an emotional eater?

I do, I know it and I am working on it. But stressed out, I want to eat, upset I want to eat. I am trying to do other things for those feelings. But it is hard.

  • i like to think im not but i am. i eat when im bored and eat when im feeling lonely and sad. just eat, eat and eat. i think its best to keep fruits and veggies around and kick the treats outta the house...your more willing to go for something easy and unhealthy with lots of fat in it when those feelings kick in.

  •  I have absolutely no problem with swallowing Ben and Jerrys when I've had a bad day.  I don't beat myself up about it.

  • Really hard. Emotional eating has been causing my weight to yo- yo for years. When I'm sad and/or depressed I'm heavy. When I'm happy and content I shed pounds. It just sucks!

  • I have been but now I'm an emotional smoker. I know it's not good but I will work on it. I've quit before and I'll quit again. But when I do I'll be buy stock in chewing gum. I always have gum around. Always.
