Default Comfort eating

I just told my PCC that I think I have a problem with comfort eating.I never told anyone else before and I would love to change it.I eat when Iam low, when I just want to be comfort I turned to food.
I know I will get the "you don't look like it"

Last time I was weight it was 7stone something, so I bet your all wondering how that is possible, you know I don't know but I do comfort eat and I will admit it here.

Does anyone else comfort eat? how do you deal with it?

I binge eat. It used to be for comfort but then it became out of anger, sadnes, loneliness, reward, punishment, happiness, distraction, boredom, comfort etc etc. Even if im not hungry or am sick of it. I just do it. Its constantly on my mind. Esp atm i have no money. Limited snacks. I just had a handful of salted peanuts... and tomorrow im not going to be able to eat anything. Im at work til 10pm and have no money to eat there so...

I dont cope with it. At all. I think its getting worse. Im weak. Dont get like me, stop it before it gets out of control.

Oh yeah i dont gain any weight either. At least i dont seem too lol.

Thank you Zoe, I will have to try that.

Excess, Yeah I don't seem to gain weight either, I try not let it rule my life.I didn't eat last night even though I had bourbon creams with me to eat but went to bed hungry.
Some of what you say why you eat, that is me too I do some of those things.

I want it to stop, and things right now make it worse but Iam really trying to make it not an issue.I don't have much food for myself. Cereal that taste really bad (cheap stuff what you get) 2 packs bourbon creams and a pot noodle thats all I have till get paid on the 22nd.So I guess I won't be doing it much.
Thank you as well.

had two trips to the drive thru today. I can really get on a roll when I feel bad enough. and I do put on weight. I've gone back and forth between 175 lbs and 225 lbs about 3 times over the past 2 years.

Really sorry you going through bad times.I always end up getting up and going for more food.Just can't stop myself.
I wish we could all stop it.Times are hard and we turn to food.....I wish it wasn't like that.

I find that I comfort eat when I'm bored or want company. I binge on one thing like M&Ms or chocolate cookies for a while until they make me sick. I know I shouldn't be doing but I don't realise I'm doing it.

I do try chewing gum, I normally chew it while Iam out so I don't go around wasting money on food while Iam out.Its in doors I need to get hold of myself with.
Last few days haven't been bad but I know I fall back in to comfort eating soon.
I need get hold of this for my costume.I got wear corset and so I want to make myself get ready for that and get my belly to normal size again, kinda chunky a bit.

I am 128... I use to be 90 pounds..
I was to 105
But 110-115 would be alrigght for now..
So yah COmfort eating is not a big problem in my life
and I consider it a problem because I try to fix it by fasting but it doesn;t work with the envirorment I live in..
