Have you substituted one problem for another? Have you become overweight instead of feeling stressed out? Have you been overeating to conceal relationship difficulties? Are you suffering physically because you've become an overweight woman instead of having to suffer emotional pain?
If you've answered yes at all, what have you really done for yourself? Well, you've got one discomfort instead of another, right? Maybe this isn't the trade-off you really wanted. Maybe you just did it because it seemed like the easiest thing to do. Has it really put you at ease?
