Emotional eating is a problem for many of us and is one we need to work on together.  The challenge starts today and there are four threads for you to look at.  This will help you get going.

Now, for the emotional eating ... it sounds like you know your triggers .. depressed, sad, alone.  So, make a list of what makes you happy and places to go to not be alone.  These are known as your "rescue plans".  As you feel sad .. go do something that makes you happy or go try something new.  By all means, get out of the house.  Exercise is a great thing to do at that point because it sends endorphins to your brain that gives you a sense of well being.  

Contact a few friends or family members and ask them if they are willing to be your buddy at these times.  Have more than 1 or 2 so if one is not available you can find another.

Finally, stay engaged in this group.  Read and listen to all the positive videos and quotes you can to help turn your thinking to one of a positive "can do" attitude.  It may sound funny, but it helps.  

Keep shouting out and we all keep offering suggestions to help you get through this and help you experience some success.  Know we care .. and we believe in you ..
