If you want to lose weight, it’s likely you can’t eat every time you feel sad, stressed, anxious, etc. If you think, “Eating is the only thing that really helps,” remind yourself that while doing other things might not help as much as eating, they may still make you feel at least somewhat better and are therefore worth trying. Even if it’s true that you’re not going to do the thing that makes you feel 100% better (temporarily!), even feeling 30% better is better than nothing.
