Having a hard few days here Jane. Not sure why, just really hard to behave. Trying to stay distracted.

Keep up what you're doing Jane. You rock!

Laura,
You just got back from a really fun vacation, where you were surrounded by past comfort foods and this all comes on the heels of the death of a loved one. This is what some of us call "The Afters."
You were 'good' you coped, you had fun, you planned, you stayed away from things. . . and then you have not gotten the big reward. Instead the food comes calling big time and you forget how to put it down.
The answer is still the same. One meal at a time. Each time you put it down you get a minute stronger. It is hard to see when you are on a wrong side of a bite but once you put down the next and follow it up with getting through till tomorrow the whole picture some how seems brighter and easier to cope with.

What is the big reward? It is the nameless satisfaction we get from consuming the foods that we cannot put down. Whatever that feeling is to each of us for abusing our bodies with food when we feel down or lost or panicked – that is the big reward that we MUST find a replacement for. I think this is why people who have gastric bypass switch to Alcohol or gambling . . . they are seeking that reward.
