Mine is being alone, which I guess could be classified as boredom even though I have heaps of things I could be doing. I am at home by myself a lot and find this is when I eat things I shouldn't or too much of things.

Not so much anymore but I really noticed it yesterday when I had an extremely difficult call at work which also triggered a response to a personal situation out of the workplace. My first instinct was to eat a massive bowl of ice cream to calm myself down. Obviously I couldn't but the urge was there.
Instead of eating, can you put your trainers on, grab your iPod or phone or portable music device and go for a walk/jog/run/sweat it out? I find that the anger/frustration I feel makes me want to sweat it out.

I have decided to change weigh in to a Friday as it's my least hectic morning. Wish me luck!

I'm not in quite as much pain anymore as I was when I first started, which is awesome. I put on a pair of pants that I wear around the house today and FH told me they are baggy at my butt But I also have a pair of shorts that were a bit too tight and now they are much more comfortable!
I've celebrated by buying two pairs of sporty clothes... I've always been so self-conscious but they're so comfortable and they make walking feel better, I feel fabulous!
