I can't even believe this didn't occur to me before.

But yeah...i totally eat more when I'm feeling a bit down or jealous. You think i'm trying to replace an emotional "unsatisfied"....with a physical feeling of satiation??

Well, certainly can't say for sure without knowing you personally. But I know it's becoming clear to me that is one of my issues.

Happy to say from 216 lbs at the highest I'm down to 165 lbs now!

wow!! congrats on the weight loss!
I myself have dropped down from 222 at my highest, and am currently hovering around 195. I'd like to loose another 20 pounds if I could.....working on it.

GOOD JOB CLOVES!!!

It's hard work.
I know for me I've been working at it steadily for 2.5 years (as of this December 21st). I know becuase I started REALLY working on it when my daughter was born and she was born June 21st. Makes the dates pretty easy (solstice baby).
It sounds like a lot when I write the numbers, it feels like a REALLY LONG time when I consider the dates.

But I can't deny I am much happier now.

Keep up the good work!

That is true. It takes "life change" I know everyone says it-but it's true.

I started with walking. I got to where (until I got stuck on bed rest for my neck) where I was averaging 5 miles a day or so for 3-4 days a week. One day a week of 10 or more miles and on the other days I would run 1 mile on the treadmill (running SUCKS).
But it really did help A LOT.

yo.
I feel the same way... I am of normal weight and a very small frame, so my numbers will not be related to any of yours, thus I won't post them.

But - During the last few months of my marriage and post divorce I gained weight. This was a result of drinking alot, eating, etc. for the reasons you all posted.

After I started my new life with new friends in a new town - It literally melted off! As I said before - I am a small frame, but on this small frane, I lost 20lbs in the past year.

Totally ridiculous... I think I just got happier, and ta dah!

Default Eat when I'm happy

I can't help it...when I am happy I cook and I eat. When I eat, I gain weight. The times in my life that were the most stress filled and unhappy were also the times in my life that I weighed the least amounts. My anxiety increases and perhaps my metabolism does too when I am under stress, but I also notice a big decrease in my appetite in general when I am sad or upset. I never really was one to turn to ice cream when I was unhappy.

Unfortunately, when I am happy and secure I also feel like I look my worst but heck...life is good
