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.

Undereating

Undereating

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 need meal suggestions to help increase my food intake. What can I do? Eating when I'm not hungry makes me nauseous, and my meds suggest I eat.

Any advice on just getting started

I am having a hard time just finding the energy and motivation to even start anything. I know what I need to do, i make the plan to do it but then just can't bring myself to get moving. It's like I talk myself out of it before I even get started.

What are your key words for the upcoming new year?

What are your key words for the upcoming new year?

The new year is just a couple of days away! It is time to think about what it is you want to different in your life. New Year's resolutions are easy to make but hard to keep, so instead of making specific resolutions, I am adopting key words for myself for the new year.

My words are OPTIMISM, CONFIDENCE, and FAITH. What words will you adopt?
