Hi all, I need some help. Every since my sweety has been gone, all I do is eat and I have gained so much weight. I dont wanna be this big when I go buy my wedding dress in 2006. I have 3 years before I walk down the aisle, but when I get depressed all I do is eat. And with him being gone I get depressed a lot. Does anyone else have that problem? Does anyone know how I can change that? Please help me Im just getting bigger and I cant stand it.

Get a hobby. Read, get on PTO, go for a walk, etc. The more you stay in the house, the more you are going to eat so try to be out as much as possible. Usually I go to the mall and window shop (cause I sure don't have any money). Usually surroundings depress you. So get out as much as you can.

I know EXACTLY what you're talking about...I have steadily gained weight since Billy's been gone. It's awful and I feel awful. I wasn't skinny to begin with, but I'd really like to get back into the clothes that I wore when Billy was home. He kept me running around so much that I didn't have time to eat. Hopefully, what I can't get off myself, Billy can help...then again, he's the greatest cook I've ever known.

I bought an exercise machine, so now instead of just sitting there and wathcing tv, I work out. Plus when you are taking care of yourself, you won't just eat and eat and eat. I have a problem eating too when I am depressed, so I have also gained some weight since my man has been locked up. He should come home next spring, and I want to look good for him.

If you're depressed, anti depression pills such as Zoloft, Paxil, Xanax, etc.......will make you loose your appetite. I had to stop taking Zoloft because I wouldn't eat and I'm a size 6 (with Zoloft) or 8 (without pills).

Thank you all for your advice, the exercise machine is a wonderful idea. You all are so supportive, I love this place, I swear I smile the whole time I'm in PTO. I am going to try everything, the low sugar foods is great because thats when I eat the most, sitting in front of this computer. Thank you all.
