    Thank you for the information.
  • I always enjoy Deans articles..thank you
  • Some very good ideas contained within this article.
    Very helpful article! Thank you.
  • Unlike many "cheery" articles that regurgitate the positive until you want to upchuck yourself this is a great article! It shoots from the shoulder and tells you to take responsibility. Bravo. I saved this one to re-read.
  • Love this article. I've read it before on SP and enjoyed reading again!
  • Love this article, and will probably come back to it several time to read again. I learned the long and hard way that you can pretty much pick any diet blind folded and be successful if you just follow it consistently....

    .....BUT...... that isn't what makes weight loss so challenging. Its the mental aspects, the emotional triggers that happen during that day. In most cases people can not remove themselves from their life in order to lose weight. So finding ways to deal with things and get perspective is so critical.

    Thank you for this article!
  • "Remind yourself where you are. Take a look around, noticing and naming the colors and shapes in the space around you." This is a tips I have never received before, and I think it can help. Thanks!
  • As long as you cling to excuses, you'll stay fat - stop calling it an addiction.
    That said:
    The first step is to recognize which stressors are within your control, and which are not.
    That which is in your control: change it.
    That which is not: get a hobby, go to the gym, read a book, WRITE a book. Post snarky comments on the interwebz (does wonders for me), go to the gym again - lift as much as you can and play noxious screamy heavy metal until your ears bleed. (The Germans do this best.)
    Above all, stop using "emoitional eating" as an excuse.You'll either endeavor to do that which must be done, or you'll stay fat.
    These tips have been around for decades, there is so much more to overeating than what these tips will solve. The experts need to admit the addiction factor!! Once and for all. But the whole weight loss industry makes millions because they want us to believe we can just say "no"!! That's a lie, but it keeps the whole industry going, and has for decades......,
  • This is a lot to take in but very helpful to work on over time.

    Will be very helpful.

    So many un necessary mountains that don't actually exist.

    Been working through the

    'It's all over' just because of one small glitche.

    Thanks for info.
  • Stress eating is the ONE thing I have struggled with over the years. I like the advice to reconnect with yourself bc I think I do tend to unplug my rational thinking to use food to relax or destress. Just taking a moment to pause can sometimes break that automatic response. Thanks!
  • Thanks! I've seen a positive effect just from reading this article. I will use these techniques in the future.
  • After a little cool down walk, I like to talk it out with my husband, or sister. They often make me see things from a different point of view.
