I started 2 months ago changing my lifestyle and have started losing weight, although I have been successful with my weightloss and my activity level has gone up tremendously, I find myself in an awkward position dealing with my emotions. I am an emotional eater and until I started really focusing on changing my eating habits and exercising, I would cover every thing up with food, eating constantly and not dealing with anything. I know this might sound strange but I find myself very emotional at times for no apparent reason and not always knowing how to handle it, sometimes going for a walk will help but sometimes I'm just plain cranky and don't know what is wrong with me. I don't grab chips or cookies anymore to cover it up but now I have to learn to deal with my emotions in a positive way. Has anyone else experienced anything like this or am I just strange!!!!!!

This test went HORRIBLY. They were about 20 seconds or so into...
