    Hi everyone, I’m kind of new to this platform but I also struggle with emotional eating and looking to connect with other people with similar issues.
    I would definitely like to lose a little bit of weight but the main thing is getting to a place where food is no longer a an emotional crutch for me. I’m thinking that using MFP to just document my food as non-judgementally as possible and become aware of where my weaknesses are.

    I'm kinda new here too but have been really struggling with my eating through the winter and need to have a healthier relationship with food.

    I sometimes use the Notes section of my diary or my MFP blog as an "emotional" tool. The blog might be especially helpful as a journal. You can make it private so only you can see it.

    Hope this helps!

    I do this too! Especially on days that I'm having trouble pinpointing exactly what's wrong. I'll add a note of whatever I'm feeling and things that aren't going well in my life outside of the food and weightloss. It might take a day or two, but then I can identify what the trend is and handle the issue (usually)!

    Lacey it is 100% time to eat to live instead of living to eat!! Hunger is normal. Eat when you are hungry stop before you are full. Just do it!!!

    My biggest issue with emotional eating is that I never feel full so if I don't measure my food an say Ok, you had enough food today, I will keep eating. When I'm tired, I just eat although I'm fully aware the food will not help me feel energized.

    I join this group because my friend of mine is talking about my family past and she want me to work on and being harsh to me when she talks to me on my phone and I try to get something to eat because she is correcting me all the time.

    I'm also in! Been on MFP for ten years now. Lost 100 lbs, and found my way back to an all time high. I know this works, but would love the social and accountability with some friends. This time I am coordinating with a nutritionist for guidance.

    Me to please! I'm just back on here after a year's break. New profile because I'm making a break from the past. I was bullied out of a job I loved last year by a narc boss and while I've been healing from that, I've overly relied on food as a crutch. Please feel free to add me as a friend. I'm a lover of the water, I finally dusted off my kayak in Nov and met a cool group of women who are starting kayaking, so I'm keen to improve my health to enjoy that more.

    Me too, please! I just got some sort of badge for being on here since 2013...I may have created an account in 2013 but definitely haven't been "ON HERE", logging, participating, etc. except for the past week! I'd really like to get and give some support with other ladies who are working towards their health goals. It's been a rough couple years and I'm ready to get out of this funk! Please feel free to add me as a friend and I'll do the same. Having accountability really helps for me. Thanks ;)
