How Do I Stop Emotional Eating?

How Do I Stop Emotional Eating?

I eat when I am bored, I eat when I am tired, I eat when I am frustrated. I am constantly eating for reasons other than hunger. How do I stop? It's like it just slips under my radar and next thing I know, I have polished off a whole pie, or cookies or bag of potato chips.

Does Anyone Else Here Have Arthritis In Their Back And Knees? If So, What Treatments Have Worked For You?

Does Anyone Else Here Have Arthritis In Their Back And Knees? If So, What Treatments Have Worked For You?

I have arthritis in my back that has been treated with injections. I've even had the nerve endings in the L3-L5 region in my back burned and had a cortisol shot in my s1 region. The swelling is gone, but not the pain. My knees have been left untreated. The pain gets unbearable at times, but my doctor only says lose weight. I've told her several times that I'm usually an active person, but pain makes me not want to be active. I need relief. Any suggestions. I've already considered… read more

Dismissive Doctors?

Dismissive Doctors?

Today was the 7th anniversary of me and my husband's first date. It would have gone really well, except for my arthritis. I've been in pain all day. Nothing seems to touch it. I've asked my doctor for help, and all I got was "Lose weight". Has anyone else been dismissed when they bring things like this up at the doctor's? What did you do?

A MyObesityTeam Member

Yes, sometimes you have to shop around for doctors that fit. I found that I stayed with mine too long it was time to look for a different nurse practioner or doctor. Time and health practices… read more
