COMFORT EATING

Here are posts from kids, who say they eat because they are sad, bored, stressed, lonely, depressed, angry, nervous, frustrated, or even when they feel happy. Some say they feel they are 'addicted' to foods. Here are three articles on comfort eating - 1, 2, 3 - and four videos:

Hey, you know what is really great? Since around Monday of last week, when the teachers started piling on homework, I have been too busy to be bored. This means I don't eat when I am bored, and I have lost 8 lbs in.. almost 2 weeks because of it!

ADVICE and SUCCESS!:) My peak weight was 106kg.The numbers still flash in my head.I always think "How can u let urself go like that?" Now i'm down to 62kg.I'm vegan now, thanks to my boyfriend, and the weight is practically dropping off. I don't feel the need for chocolate when i'm upset and i have realised that half the stuff i used to eat, i don't really like that much! i go for one hr walks in the morning and again in the afternoon. I love it. i also do weights before my walks in the morning!I know think of the world in a totally different way. I think of myself in a totally different way.I'm happy to hear that all of you's are wanting to and are losing weight.Just keep in mind that everyone has their own ideal weight range and also different body types.Don't just think because ur friend weighs like 50kg, that u have to aswell.Work out your BMI and find out what weight u need...
