For most dieters the title “The Happy Dieter” is an oxymoron. There is no such thing. Some people display emotions and others don’t so much. Many just keep emotions bottled up and react by overeating. Somehow we think that eating comforts us when our emotions are running away with our life. Emotions can control us. If you ever watch The Biggest Loser you will see time after time that something happened that created negative emotions that took over their life resulting in excessive weight gain. God designed emotions to allow us to express ourselves. If we are happy, then we can express happiness by smiling, laughing, grinning, and celebrating. Unfortunately that can also mean overeating. Happiness is based on circumstances—happenstance—as well as the other emotions. Generally an external stimulus creates a corresponding emotion. We all want to be happy, at least most of us. We often think “I could diet successfully if I was happy”. However, even happy people have dieting problems. Happy-go-lucky people might just overeat because they want to. They just like food.
