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.

People always think that because you're overweight that means you overeat. My doctor has actually told me that I need to eat more, but I don't normally have an appetite.

I like the protein cheese, nut snacks are good for that. wheni worked i would set an alarm for 2-3 hours and eat one of the small snacks. it helps stay off the blood sugar hills and vally's.

There are some of the nicest ladies on my Obesity team. Some needs something to do that they will enjoy. If I invited them to model in the fashion show and show them how many more ladies there are that are obese but has found something to do. I know it will motivate them even more. I don't want to go against the rules here, is why I am asking.
This Fashion show sounds so Amazing and so much Fun! I wish I lived closer to Florida, but I live in Indiana.
Does anyone know where I can go or what I can do to get coverage for me to have the Roux-en-Y surgery? My husband's work will not get insurance coverage for any weight loss surgery.
