Depending on my schedule, my workouts fall either immediately before breakfast or immediately before lunch, I know I'm going to be hungry so I plan accordingly. I agree, the other problems in life aren't going to magically disappear once you reach your goal weight. Looking into WHY you overeat in the first place is essential. Start a journal, write down what you are feeling each day. Over time you'll be able to compare it to your food log and patterns will emerge. Keep your house stocked with healthy snacks and banish the junk food, so if you do go on a binge the damage is limited (how much damage can you do with baby carrots? lol). Take baby steps. Eliminate pop this week, doritos the next. If you snack at night while watching TV, turn it off and start reading, or crafting. You can't eat if your hands are already busy. You're learning new patterns and a new way of life. It takes time. My quote is something I kept hearing myself say. It's finally starting to stick, after 4+ years lol.
