Hi all! My name is Wendy, and I just realized I am truly an emotional eater due to the increase of ingestion of calories lately in the form of carbs mostly to mitigate the stress of dealing with an unscrupulous business in connection with an insurance claim.

How does everyone else deal with their stress?

Hello everyone! I've been gone from sp and I'm back to finish what I've started. I've had high anxiety my entire life but in recent years I've noticed the desire to binge eat to feel better is really out of control. Its a challenge for me to publicly admit this as I am usually more reserved. I'm not a "share my feelings" kind of woman.
I'm glad to see there is a team for me and I look forward to gaining knowledge shared by you all as we work through this!
I have a lot to learn.

I am so glad to see there is a emotional eaters team. I have lost some weight, but then it seems like I start letting things get to me, or just get bored. That is when I start eating at night. I have gained back some of the weight I had lost. I started reading everything I could google about emotional eating. I spoke with the Doctor I work for, telling him I think I need help with that. I think just reading some of the post all of you have wrote is what I needed. I am looking forward to getting to know all of you, and also getting this eating under control. emoticon

I've been a sparkpeople member for years but just recently started using it again. I was born overweight and controlling my weight has been a lifelong journey. Through the years I have tried many diets and programs to lose weight. Twice I have lost 100 pounds and put it back on.

I lost 50 pounds on my own over the last few years, but this year my wife and I started a medically supervised ketogenic program. She's lost 35 and I've lost 40 pounds this year. I try to get 10,000 steps in daily (except Sunday). I have stopped eating emotionally for the most part but I still have those days when I start eating mindlessly, and it usually has to do with some stressors in my life. Sometimes I don't recognize it until after the fact. Thanks for having me on this team.

Grace and peace to you,

moonius

Welcome to the team and good luck. I've been backsliding the past couple of weeks and really need to get back on track. Here's to us learning new ways of coping with stress and managing a better lifestyle.

Hi everyone!

I'm so glad to have found this team; in the last year I've steadily gained quite a bit of weight - although I had a short period of time when I lost at the beginning of this year, I generally haven't been able to maintain it. This is mostly due to the fact that whenever I feel a bit overwhelmed/life gets stressful etc, I turn to eating. I've been trying to be more aware of this and at least change the foods I'm eating, but it's nor working as easy as hoped.
I'm feeling quite motivated though - I've been away from the site for a few months but I'm back now with goals to reach!

I'm retired and stooped using Spark people when I retired. two years and 40 pounds later, i needed to get back in the program. I struggled with eating especially when I get bored. I know that I need to keep my mind and body occupied with useful activities to mitigate my urges to eat something. Looking forward to joining this team.

Hi! I have been battling this weight thing for years! I have finally revamped my life to cooking fresh meats and vegetables but my allergies are off the charts during the summer months, and I have gained 10 pds taking Benedryl! This stresses me, and I am here to learn how to cope with the stress instead of EATING! I am currently trying to learn how to control my allergies naturally, so I will not continue to gain weight because of my medicine! I have stopped and started so many times, but this time it is going to be different because my mindset is on the future in Yahushua (Jesus) and not the past! I look forward to growing with this group as we turn from eating when we are going through something.

Without a struggle, there can be no progress!

Welcome KARMABEL. You've found a wonderful place to get support and strength. I've only been active on this site for about 2 months now and I'm so glad I finally decided to jump in and join this journey with others facing the same challenges and feelings that I faced for years. I'm sending you lots of positive thoughts. I'm glad you've joined us.

Hello team.
I cannot remember a time when I did not associate emotions with food. Like so many out there- family expectations, arguments, memories, celebrations, disappointments, break ups, stress, and boredom, have lead to choosing food to soothe and comfort my mind and soul.
Now, I join Spark, again, after trying, and then quitting 3 years ago when I was diagnosed with diabetes, chronic pain, and a multitude of dis-eases.
Ok -I just typed and erased my medical issues and history about 3-4 times now. It's uncomfortable, feels like whining, and I sound like a victim. Basically, I have become a typical American, morbidly obese stereotype. I realize I've slowly been killing myself.
Me; No one else.
After starting to fix my medical issues this year, I've come to the conclusion that FOOD is the best medicine (or poison). I'm a life-long, binging vegetarian, who is now starting a vegan, whole food, plant based diet. I am determined (today), to reverse what dis-eases me, get off pills, and make a daily, no,-a moment-to-moment choice to EAT to LIVE. I'm soaking up info right now, and all Spark has to offer. I'm looking for encouragement, compassion and support for this uphill climb, and others who need the same. So glad you are all here. I do believe this is my last chance, and I want to make it, but am scared. (that, right there, was really uncomfortable to say). but...I will not delete.

I find two things really help. Chatting on the computer and going out walking. Reading can too but I have to be deep enough into the story not to be tempted by snacking (I've always snacked while I read).

Thanks for the advice Fitter! Finding a distraction seems logical, I just have to find one that works for me. I have the best of intentions each and everyday, but find myself quickly spiralling out of control... I don't know if there's a deeper reasoning behind it, such as depression/anxiety/maybe a medical disorder... But I know it's an unhealthy way to live and I want to get it under control. :(

Same here Andrea. All I can say is distract yourself and talk to others. Sometimes just telling someone what's on my mind helps.

Hi guys! My name's Andrea, and I would say that emotional eating is probably the MAIN reason I am overweight today... I struggle with this on a daily basis and would love to hear any suggestions/adive in order to break this cycle. I look forward to getting to know everyone! :)

I thought I should join this one...since emotional eating is the biggest reason I struggle with my weight (the other is sometimes falling into inactivity...more rare, I struggle with the emotional eating all the time).

Anyway, I'm Kelly and I'm from Michigan. I'm married to a wonderful man and together we have two ginormous cats (we think they have some ragdoll in them). I'm a freelance math tutor and over the summer I'm a childcare provider for my nieces (six and eight this year). I like spending time with my family (including said cats) and friends, reading (I average 50 books a year), walking (especially in fall and winter..yes even in the snow and I have crampons to deal with that and ice), hiking, and swimming.

I've struggled with emotional eating since my early teens. My parents were fighting a lot and I don't know how it exactly got into my head to eat to cope with it but it did. Now my triggers tend more to me being procrastinating or stressed.

Hello everyone! My name is Lori I have 5 kids and been married almost 15 years. I have been dealing with depression and stress and it has lead to emotional eating. I have lost some weight on my own but I can tell I am gaining it back. I really could use the support and I am hoping to make some new friend here as well :-) thanks

Thank you, and I agree! I met some great people 5 years ago, and I know I will now too. Sometimes, the things we go through in our weight loss journeys feel so personal and private, so I am always much more comfortable sharing and discussing with like-minded others on this site. I've always felt it difficult to share my weight struggles with my friends, I guess due to my own shame and embarrassment, and having been up and down the last 5 years hasn't helped. I am more motivated than ever, I think, so I look forward to the journey with all of you!

Hi all. I have actually been a member of this team since 2009 but I disappeared for a few years and returned to get myself back on track. I find that I've always been an emotional eater..lately, I have been happy and positive but I still find myself mindlessly eating when I'm bored or stressed. I need to learn to eat only when hungry, and to choose the right foods! This group helped me five years ago and I'm confident you all can help me again... Hopefully I can help in return!

Hi
This is the first time I have posted in this team, I have stress problems as I am a carer for my husband who has mental health problems.
I find evenings very difficult especially when he is in a down mood as he will spend weeks in bed doing nothing not even eating, washing or dressing and this is when I turn to nibbling.
Twice a week I go to aqua fit, swimming or the gym and i try to go on 3 walks a week if the weather is OK.
Over the last 2-3 years(not been keeping a check) I have lost over 2 stones but it has been very hard to do.

And I am looking forward to your support and to supporting everyone.

Hi all wanted to stop by and introduce myself. My name is Michelle and I live in Canada, I have three great kids a wonderful boyfriend and love life in general :) The only thing that I don't love is my weight lol. I have been battling emotional eating and boredom eating for as long as I can remember (currently I am on the losing end of the battle) I am ready for a change ! I look forward to getting to know new people who share my struggles and know what this battle is really like :)

More sweat now,
Less jiggle later :D

So glad to be a part of this group. I am a nurse by background, but for the past 25 years, I have worked as a weight-loss coach, speaker, and writer. I have my own personal issues with gaining weight easily, especially since my breast cancer surgery 4 years ago. I blame the long-term med I have to take, but it's probably also from getting sloth with my efforts, and eating to cope.

As a weight-loss coach, I am passionate about helping people overcome the barriers that get in the way of success with managing their weight. I am the author of three weight-loss books, including my newest one, "Friends with the Scale."

Starting on Aug. 18th, I will be writing a blog post each day about the lessons in the book "100 Days of Weight Loss." I will also include my own personal answers to the questions at the end of each lesson. Here's a link to my blog:

glad to be back here, ladies, I am a middle of the night binger, which is turning into a bad habit, I stopped doing this, but when I cant sleep,which is every night, I will get up and eat bread, crackers, etc, which seems to make me sleep, but in the morning I feel crummy,,,,,it has prevented me from losing weight, and very frustrating, I have conditioned myself to automatically get up, go to bathroom, and go in kitchen, feel very bad about this, but eat pretty good in the day,,,,,my husband is thin and can sleep on a log!!!!!!

way to go girl

Hi there! I've been on Sparkpeople for a couple of years, driving my wagon successfully sometimes, riding along happily some of the time, and falling off and getting run over it more times than the first two.

So now, I'd like to build a completely new wagon that has better safety features.

The act of failing itself does not make me a failure. Only failing to begin again can do that.

Hello. I am new here. I used to be on spark years ago and quit. I'm back now due to gaining 60 of the 100 lbs I lost back. I eat when I'm stressed, bored, upset...you name it and I'll eat because of it.
