every time i don't feel good , i would eat so i would happy. so i think i should start denying myself of more food. i don't think that i should eat the way i do. so i will try to reward myself with something else than food. as i am getting heavier . i don't want the shape of my body now. it looks very terrible. so i hope that i can be more happy with other things. i am trying to think of something that can be a good hobby that can turn away my thoughts from food.

I have a grandniece and she is really getting heavier each day because just like you she eats a lot. I don't know how I could ever convince her to stop that bad habit. She's still at her teens but she is too fat for her age. I am afraid she can no longer shed those excess pounds because she has not a bit of desire. She does not seem to bothered at all. At least in your case you know this is no longer good for you. Well dear it takes just self discipline to accomplish your goal. If there is a will there is always a way. Getting heavier does not just ruin your appearance but even your health as a whole. So you might as well start your self-control on food intake seriously for your own good. It does not mean you will not eat even if starving. Of course you can always eat but make sure you eat healthy foods and eat the right amount only. Some slices of fruits in between meals to satisfy your craving is a better option. And yes you have to look for a hobby. I think you should really keep yourself busy with something else. Be active and do something you will enjoy and will make you occupied so that food will no longer occupy your thoughts.

Food is the best comforter and reward. There's no wrong rewarding yourself with food, you just have to put some limits. If you want a good hobby, try engaging in dance exercise or sports like badminton. You will stay in good shape and perfectly healthy :)

I also tend to do the same, you know, turn to food for comfort. I seem to have this mind set that once I have eaten my favorite comfort foods, everything will be alright. When my initial food high has waned, I will be hit with reality and that it isn't alright afterall. Now I'm left with the same problems plus more calories to burn or else... Whenever I'm sad or mad, I just turn to my Wii fit, or to brisk walking to "walk off" my frustrations. I haven't completely gotten it down pat but at least it's a start.
