Hi everyone. Great to be part of your team. I have never really had a problem with emotional eating before but it's been a big problem lately. I lost my dad in Oct. last year and that started it all. Two weeks later my husband and I bought and moved into a new house. Then the holidays started and we all know what that means, food, food and more food. Finally in Jan. I lost my best friend to ovarian cancer. Maybe I think food is healing my heart, but now my pants won't zip. I'm hoping that Spark People will help me get on track and get the old me back cause I kinda like her. I also want to wish everyone on this team all the success and happiness you're looking for!!

I am also new to the team. I have steadily gained over the past ten years. I have tried numerous times to lose with little success. I would reach a plateau, get discouraged and give up. But this time is different, or at least it seems to be. I am dedicated to changing my lifestyle to a healthier way of living. That being said, I have periods of time that stress gets to me and I lose all my focus. I know that I am essentially an emotional eater. I have been working at finding my triggers and trying to get more aware of how my emotions affect my eating pattern. I have been at a plateau since April and have not thrown in the towel. But it is really hard to see the weight stay the same week after week. If I think about it too much, I get depressed and the cravings become stronger. I am hoping that interaction with this team will help me stay on course. I also hope that I will be able to encourage others as well.

Hi I'm new to this forum. About 6 yrs ago I lost 85 lbs and felt great but have put back on 25-30 lbs of it, now don't feel so good. I will be having some surgery with in the next couple of months and am afraid of putting on more weight. Also have been told that I'm borderline diabetic and sweets are my big down fall. I am a big time emotional eater , I don't have to be hungry, I will just eat when I start feeling the pressures of life getting to me even when I tell my self I'm not going to . Am hoping to get encouragement and suggestions from others dealing with the same thing.

My name is Wendy. I have been battling weight loss since I had my first child, almost 22 years ago. Oddly, before that I didn't really have any major weight problems. I found a great weight loss program and lost over 70 pounds. I learned how to choose to eat healthy foods, how to prepare meals in a healthy way and I feel great since I changed my food lifestyle. Problem is, after everyone in my family has gone to sleep, I am in the kitchen eating the chips or sweet cereal or other foods I am not supposed to have but other members of my family insist on keeping in the house. I see them eating their yummy snacks all day and I want it too! My weight is creeping back up and I feel like crap. I feel rotten while I am eating the bad foods, but I just don't seem to be able to stop myself. I am diabetic so I really need to get a grip on this.

I'm with PNG... I took some time off for school and work and I think it was a big mistake... I've been able to maintain but I feel like crap and I can tell my fitness is just not as good. I've been giving into emotional eating all morning today but it ends now!

My name is Kayte, I live in Bakersfield California. We just moved and I'm coming off the busiest semester of my life. In the last semester, I turned 29, started a new job - which is largely self driven - maintained 15 unites and managed to be active in my 3 kids lives. Luckily my husband and I took one class together or he would have never seen me all semester.

I will be starting summer classes in June so I'm desperately trying to get moved into my house and moved back into SP before then! I look forward to getting to know everyone!

Hopefully I can get back into SP and recenter like I need to!

I am attempting to start again after having a several month lapse of not tracking and giving in to emotional eating. This is even hard for me to admit. I mainly go to food when I need comfort. I am praying that my comfort will come from my Lord and what he has done for me...this is definitely going to be breaking some habits and strongholds. emoticon

Hello!!!!!
I've been a spark member for a while and I've been noticing the team but never joined. I am a nurse, who is going to school to get my BSN, I love music and laughter, but I'm an emotional eater. Some days are better than others and when I have a bad day...its pretty bad. So hopefully I'll be able to pick up some tips. Thanks for the warm welcome!!!!!

I'm not new to the team but have been gone for a long time. I had a lap band in July of 2009 and have been on the lap band team a lot. Had to have it out three weeks ago and now I'm scared to death I'm going to gain my weight back. Because I've been so worried about it I'm eating everything. Does that make sense? I know that sounds crazy but that's the way it is. Anyone have any ideas of how to stop this crazy behavior? Thanks Teetye

I am new to the team. I am 25 and from Kentucky. I am a music teacher, and I am often on the go with work or with my musician husband. Needless to say the stress from everything and being on the go causes me to emotional eat a lot while he is gone.

I would love tips or suggestions to ways to steer clear from emotional eating.

Hi. I've been on SP before and am actually fairly close to my weight loss goal, which sounds good except that I have fluctuated so much and would have been there a year ago if it were not for emotional eating. I just inhaled a 540 calorie Lindt dark chocolate bunny that I didn't even enjoy, and felt that something needed to be done, so I rejoined. (Yesterday I did the same with twice as much lasagne as I needed even though I was already full, as well as Diet Cokes, fried food, and chocolate - but the weird thing was I actually lost weight - probably stress! The day before it was wine, the day before that it was beer, etc. You get the general idea.)

In a few hours I'll be going to vinyasa yoga. I guess that may take care of most of the chocolate bunny. And hopefully some of the stress and emotional concerns. But still. Very annoying to have sabotaged myself like that.

And although I only have 10 pounds to lose at this point, I am definitely nowhere close to my health, wellness, and fitness goals. The numbers may look OK but I definitely need to decrease my body fat ratio, increase muscle mass, etc.

Good luck everyone and happy Mother's Day to anyone who's ever done anything remotely motherly. Or fatherly. If I can get this stuff sorted out maybe I'll be there with you next year!

Good Morning. I just joined Spark last night and this is the first board I joined. I am a emotional eater. I had lost 60 lbs last year and gained 10 lbs in one week because of emotional eating. I look forward to making some new friends and learning how to deal with my emotional eating. Happy Mothers Day to all Mom's out there. :-)

My name is Kama. I have a real problem with emotional eating, it scares me the amount of food I can consume when I am upset or stressed depressed, etc. I need help and I want to learn from you all.

Kama is ready to take it all the way!

Hi My Name is Lelaine
I'm an Emotional Eater. I'm starting to learn not to be. I'm still a work in progress. It doesn't help me or anyone else when I eat like that. I try staying away from things that make me up set. And I'm relizing I can't fix everything myself. I do what I can and that has to be good enough. Just started this team today. Together we can do anything. Happy Mothers Day to all you Moms out there.

Have a great day everyone.


I gained it 1 lb at a time. I will loose it 1 lb at a time.

We can do this together

Hello, my name is Maida. I just joined SparkPeople on Sunday. I am a big emotional eater and have been since my 20's. I eat when I am bored, feeling down, stressed out, etc. My biggest hurdle is having low self esteem and not having any self respect. If only I could fix this and also be happy for others I am sure I would lose weight and my emotional eating would stop. I have tried self help books but to no avail.

I know that I need someone to be accountable to who would give me the kick in the pants that I need. I also need some kind of therapy but that gets to be quite expensive. Also bettering myself helps too.

I hope I can conquer this problem else I will be overweight and unhealthy for the rest of my life. I am sure you all can relate to this.

Talk soon.

Hello everyone! I just joined the team. I started with spark a while back but can't seem to stay on track. I have been struggling with my job. I have a tendency to make my life all about my job so that when things are not going well on the job front, my view of my life in general goes to crap. The truth is, I have ha lot to be thankful for. Healthy children, a husband of almost 18 years, a home.....ect. I need to learn to take the emotions out of business and just let it go. I have been eating a lot lately to drown disappointment over being passed over for a promotion that I have been working very hard to try to get. I am hoping to find some buddies to help me get and stay on track. Hope everyone has a great weekend! We can do this!

Hi I'm new to here too! I am 31 years old and for the first time in my life I have a desk job. I am so use to running around working that this is quite the adjustment for me. I worked in a nursing home for 7 years then was a waitress in a restaurant now I'm here. I think about food constantly. What can I snack on? What am I gonna cook for supper? When can I eat lunch? I am working on this but just wish that little voice that's not so quiet would hush up and leave me alone. I'd say only 25% of the time that I eat I am actually hungry. I eat when I'm bored, when I'm anxious, when I'm sad....yeah definitely an emotional eater. I need to get this corrected before I become really overweight...right now I'm verging on overweight and normal on BMI. This is the first summer since I was 14 years old that I will not be able to wear a bikini but have to purchace a 1 piece because I know I don't have the body I did in the past....PLEASE HELP with any ideas you have!

Hi, I'm Nancy, or Nance, and new to this team but joined SP almost 2 years (really?!) ago.I just admitted this week that I think I have this problem. It sounds so dumb of me to say I'm not even sure I do, but I'm not sure. I eat too many sweets. I have had so success but then I yo-yo again bc of the sweets. Since sweets are NOT life sustaining, i am guessing this is my problem. I hope to learn more and get this under control and move forward/keep losing.

Ever since hitting goal weight [lost 63#'s] on April 8th, I've wanted to EAT and EAT! I was okay [still tracked and went a little over my limits] until last night and this morning when I finally binged. I FEEL horrible! Looking forward to getting control immediately! I'm trying to figure out WHY after so many months, I would go back to these defeating and awful habits!!!!!!

HI, I am new to this team as well. Was reading some articles about emotional eating here on Spark and found the link to this team. I find that my emotions get the best of me and I start eating everything in sight to try and fill the void I am feeling but it never seems to be filled and then I get angry, upset, and sad that I have eaten all of this food and then feel even worse. Looking forward to checking out the team and getting to know everyone here.

Hi, my name is Stefanie. My emotional eating is being triggered by boredom and lazyness like when watching TV or when I am home alone. Sometimes when I skip my afternoon snack - which I intend not to - I am starving by the time I get home. This is very dangerous because then I tend to make quick but rather bad choices because I do not take the time to prepare a healthy snack. It so happens that I sometimes even stop at the store on the way home and stuff my face with something salty. Yes, in the car...
That's what I want to work on mostly. I am looking forward to all the support here on SP!

Hi, My name is Robin and I am without a doubt an emotional eater. Right now I am going through a divorce. This is one of the most emotional times of my life. I have got to wake up now! I want to be able to say , "When I got a divorce I lost the 100lbs I've been meaning to for years." and not, " I gained 50lbs when I got a divorce." I have been overweight since I was in kindergarten, so I pretty much have always felt inadequate and hid behind food. Food is not my friend and I've known this for years but I am not listening!

Hi- I'm Alex. I'm new to the group and fairly new to Spark. I'm glad I found this group because I am an emotional eater and can't seem to break the habit. I want to make a lifestyle change but can't seem to find the right motivation. So, here I go off trying to get myself put in the right direction.
