I quite agree about needing a distraction. I have just got myself a guitar so am trying to learn something new. Hope it keeps my mind off food and stretches my brain a bit! When we are stressed or unhappy it is all too easy to reach for some sort of "comfort food". Its just a case of identifying your stress or mood trigger and finding an alternative to sooth or comfort yourself - basically you need to find an alternative habit!

My triggers are stress and boredom.
Good luck.
