AAAAHHHH!!! I just can't stop eating. I eat when I'm bored. I eat when my kids are having a hard time. I eat with them when things are going well. It's as though food is the only thing that makes me happy and gives me comfort. And yes, I do things for myself. I do go out monthly with friends. I've tried so many things...and the bottom line is that I don't stick with anything. For the past four years I walked regularly with a friend before work. And then she hurt her leg...so I haven't exercised in at least three months. Will I ever get it together enough to get myself back in shape??? I"ve even purchase two books on emotional eating...and I just can't get myself to actually finish the book.
