I've been trying to lose weight for ages and have figured put my big problem like many, i comfort eat.
when i am sad i eat, when i am nervous i eat, when i am lonely i eat. I also eat when i am stressed.
for a while i managed to refuse the comfort eating and lost weight. But i wasn't able to cope mentally without the comfort and destress of not eating. And at work i had a mental break down.
i find work very stressful (i am a trainee supervisor at a hotel). And the more stressed i get the less i can concentrate. So i snack at work, chocolate, bread, chips. Things that i can grab and eat quick and help keep me calm.
and when i am at home, i feel that if i don't comfort i will start panicing and crying.
does anyone have any tips on how to cope so that i do not need to turn to food.
