How Do You Stop Emotional Eating Al I Think Of Is Food Some Times I Wish I Was Nt A Foodaholic

Be gentle with yourself.
Start with one small change at a time.
Keep talking to us here. We are listening.
Another, Be Happy .
I'm finding the weight is coming off but i think it's because I'm happier now.
I accept that i can do this and that it takes time.
As long as i keep moving forward i will get there eventually and if not, I'm determined to be happy anyway.

I too am an emotional eater. I try to control it, but it seems to get the best of me at times. Somewhere in my childhood food became my comfort. Which has led me to where I am today.

I am a food aholic too! It is not sugar, or salt....just eating makes me happy. I don't know how I do this when I figure I am an intelligent enough person, yet cannot change! I don't wanna be a like so many of my skinny friends - never eat - are no fun!

Learn to love other foods one at a time. Chips for no salt no butter popcorn. Then. Mayonnaise/avacado. It takes time but together things can be good for you and yummy too. Just keep it in moderation bc anything can be too much.
