Emotional eater

Hi all, I'm new to this group and looking for some support to cut the junk food cravings. I have have had a stressful year, juggling studying, working full time and being a mum which meant that the only way I could get through it emotionally was with food. I am now much more settled in a permanent job and feel like now is the time to sort myself out and get back to the gym. Putting weight on has affected my joints too so I am keen to lose some weight to ease this. Any tips or just general encouragement from anyone in a similar position would be greatly appreciated 😊

Hi and welcome, Bethan :)

I think you'll find that many of us are emotional eaters and can empathise with you. I'm sorry to hear that you've had such a stressful year, but am pleased that you've come through the other side, ready to do battle :)

I'd like to invite you to join our Newbie Club, which we hope will be a good place for you to connect with members, who are also just starting out. If you just post a few words to introduce yourself and respond to others there, you'll soon break the ice. Here's the link


Wishing you all the best :)


Welcome BethanC17.

It's worth taking the time to read through everything that moreless has pointed you towards. The more information we have then the better decisions we can make.

Wishing you all the best, you can do it.


Thank you both. Will have a read through. I have a good feeling about this 😊
