Surrender to something better

I eat to get instant comfort, relief from stress, or just to put off doing something I don't want to do (work, exercise, etc). I'm also a binge-eater. It is so hard to overcome habits of dealing with life that have accumulated for over 20 years now and brought so many pounds along with them. I believe it is possible to learn a new way of life. I want to surrender my desire for instant gratification for something better, a new way of life where I can wait until I'm hungry before I eat again.

Forgot a line in my note, I think: that part of it was a copy of what I said on the LBF forum.

Thanks for checking up on me. I'm doing better, but not yet seeing results on the scale. It's frustrating, but I'm trying to focus on other positive things. I started a new exercise regime about three weeks ago and I feel like I finally found something I really like to do. However yesterday was a very bad day. I woke up with a headache and my back and neck were sore, then found that my cat wasn't feeling so well. We took her to the emergency clinic and ended up having to put her down. And the stress of all that made my headache and tension soo much worse. It was a VERY bad start to a Sunday. So for the rest of the day I kinda just did nothing. But I'm hoping today I can get back on track. Now that I've weeded some things out of my life I'm focusing a lot on my health, starting with exercise, then I'm going to re-evaluate my medicine and then I'm going to focus on eating. I already started exercise and I re-researched my medicine's (way shocker,) and I'm creating a plan to change some of that and then I'll start on the eating portion of things. You may not have wanted to know all that, but now you have it. :)
