Sorry you are going through a rough time. Hope things get better for you soon. In the meantime, stay strong and take extra good care of yourself... I have found journalling to help alot through tough times.

I am an emotional eater. I think this is something I developed when I was a kid, to cope in a dysfunctional family. In hindsight, I have seen my weight climb during different periods in my life as an adult, when there has been extra stress due to work, personal problems, losing loved ones..etc.

Anger, lonliness, being tired...all are triggers for me. I'm focussing on remaining very self aware anytime I am dealing with food, and questioning if I am really hungry before I eat. HALT! is a good thing to keep in mind, thanks for posting that Lyn. Aww, cute smily by the way...
