Try walking! I know it sounds silly but a quick wander is good exercise and stick a pair of headphones in and you're lost to the world, just concentrating on the music and how it makes you feel (better hopefully!)

Works for me :)

I know exactly what you mean. I'm overweight and a lot of it has to do with my depression. I'm an emotional eater, so when I'm feeling depressed (which is almost everyday -.-), I seek out food. I tend to eat whatever I get my hands on. I've tried so hard to control it, but it's so hard. I've tried exercising, but I just don't have the drive or determination for it. I've gone as far as making my boyfriend tell me no when I want something that isn't good for me. It's just... nothing works, because of my depression, I eat. It really sucks.

I am an emotional eater too. Seems like the only thing that makes me feel better when I am down. Wish I could re-wire my brain to think differently.

3 different times in my life I've lost 50 pounds in just a 6 month (or so) span. No it wasnt through a crazy diet. I just ate better and exercized.

All 3 times I put the weight back on, usually as quickly as I lost it.

You can probably guess what my moods were when i was losing/gaining weight.

I use to have a weight issue due to emotional eating. It takes a lot of work and it is something that you have to be mindful over, but it can be managed. Now I am at a weight that I am happy with and I lead an active lifestyle. I forund the key to make lasting changes is to make sure that they are small changes. For example cut out eating before you go to bed and instead take a walk. If you feel like you have to emotionally eat, grab some celery or veg. I found the biggest thing though, if its not good for you just don't buy it. You can't emotionally eat on something that you don't have. Oh, have a cheating day, where you allow yourself to eat whatever - but plan it ahead of time (my day was Sunday). It does take some time though. Make small changes that you feel comfortable with. Ones in which easily fit into your life now.
