Isn't it obvious that those who use food as an escape are hiding their emotions from something else they don't want to face? Of course you must then face whatever that is to successfully lose weight & keep it off. I suspect most of those with 50 lbs or more to lose could benefit from counseling. Report
We all need to be realistic. Report
negative comments are useless Report
I have certainly found this to be true. Living a healthier life means addressing the reasons for my weight gain, and realizing that losing weight without working on the rest of me (mental, emotional, spiritual) does not mean I will automatically feel happy and comfortable in my body. Report

Thanks for the great article! :) Report
This won't solve all your problems but it certainly can help with some of them. Thanks for a good article. Report
There is so much emotional work that goes along w/lifestyle changes. That's the key. Working on those issues, whatever they are. Report
This was a very helpful article! Thank you! Report

Losing the weight just solves part of the equation. Report
All valid points. Losing weight just gets you thinner, it does not solve underlying problems. Report
Great article! Thanks! Report
Good article. I like that the author addressed the mipreception that once one reaches goal weight or sheds unwanted lbs, that life will be better. Unfortunately, that is not my experience. Shedding the weight is multidimensional, and all aspects need to be addressed for the weight to stay off permanently, at least that is how I see it. The article reminded me that this is a journey that is going to take time, love, and compassion toward self. Report
Thank you Report
