Sounds like everyone is making some progress. This is definitely a baby step journey that requires lots of patience!

I've been struggling with emotional eating myself. My FIL has us really stressed out. He has no boundaries with us. Just stops by whenever he wants with no warning and just barges into our house. I am a SAHM so I'm home a lot and never know when he'll just come walking in. I feel like I have no privacy. Yesterday was the icing on the cake when he shows up at 10am while we're sitting eating breakfast. Trying to come up with a way to gently tell him enough is enough. He's 80 years old with no hobbies and no friends. He became a widow about 1.5 years ago but moved about 4 hours away from us for about a year. Now he's moved back by us and this is what we're dealing with. It's very frustrating to say the least. I've taken a lot of walks to try to clear my head and avoid food. I haved turned to food a lot though even when I know it won't solve anything. Baby steps for sure!
