just a quickie... have a meeting in 5 minutes. john has hit the biggest issue here. and if he doesn't cut out the stress eating and the 'one more bite' thing, he runs the risk of stretching his pouch. in a way, it's a good thiing that it's been so uncomfortable, but if he keeps going this way, it'll become easier and easier for him to overeat and to stress eat.
he MUST find other ways of coping with the stress. i'm almost ashamed to say it, but i've been using exercise to cope. and i've been knitting as well.
he CANNOT swallow his emotions any more. and he's learning the hard way.
Start your day with a smile, and get it over with.
Keeping it off is a hundred decisions a day that help you maintain what you achieved. And that's the hard part. - L Sanders
