It is all a mind thing. We all have allowed eating to become something that it wasn't meant to be, and I am one that let it rule my life. At times, the thoughts still do, and at times, I still fall to the temptation.
The struggle continues, as Nancy will say... packet by packet. You will get stronger as time goes on. As a wise person once said (which originated from a Bible verse I believe), whatever struggle doesn't kill you will make you stronger.
We fight this battle every second, but isn't it nice to know that we have a great system as a tool to fight the good fight. The battles rage on but we will win the war. :mrgreen:

Thanks Mike, you just saved me a few minutes of typing. :mrgreen: My situation exactly! Yes we will win the war! :toast:

I've recognized how food has controlled my life in the past and now that I am on MF that is turning around. It is very liberating for me to make choices that are healthy!

Somewhere on this forum a book was recommended to someone (I believe Nancy recommended it but I am not sure :oops: ). I purchased it and find it's very helpful. It's a 5-step plan for people who want to overcome "emotional eating." The name of the book is Life is Hard Food is Easy by Linda Spangle, RN.

Good Luck 25 -- you are certainly in good company here!

Started MF 11/6/06; reached goal 9/27/07.

I can totally relate too! I would be sitting watching tv and a Dorito commercial would come on. so i immediately went to the kitchen and got my bag and ate almost the whole thing..then about 10 minutes later i would go get the Ritz Crackers Box and eat 1 whole pack of kiddin! I kept packing on the pounds until i put a STOP to that nonsense and started this program 2 days is my 3rd day, and to quote what Nickieluv said:"But there will come a time when you have to remind yourself to eat, if you can believe that - it's true!"...and i'm swearing to that quote because it happenend to me!...i was suppose to drink my next shake at 5:00pm and actually forgot...i was busy at this "wonderful" forum, but i hurried up and fixed it and at 5:30pm i was drink'n!

You hang'n does get easier:+)
