Re emotional eating - I think what has changed it for me is, I made a pact with myself a while ago to stop being a victim. DH doesn't always talk nicely to me, and often says little put downs. I do love him dearly, but i have ALLOWED this to escalate over our 28+ years of being together. My family have always considered me to be the failure, and that really impacts on you emotionally, and our children have picked up on this and a couple of them also speak really rudely to me most of the time - however I made this pact with myself about 3 months ago. Now when any of them talk in a nasty way, I just leave.
Why are you going MUM? they will ask, and so I now just say, Because I do not deserve to be spoken to like that.
It is interesting how my life has turned around since then.
Yesterday I tied little goat too close to a tree, he ring barked it, and DH absolutely LOST IT. So I removed myself until he had calmed down, and didn't get drawn into the 'pick on Gwamma' episode. The girls talk to me in a really nice way now- 95% of the time, and it feels fantastic. I think that when we feel good about ourselves, and that is often how others treat us - it can have a huge impact on all facits of our life
so thats me...............
