|Oh my gosh! I have the exact same problem as you!!! I eat out of pure boredom, and as a result have packed on extra pounds along with extra inches! It is sooooo depressing! I have found the supplement called hoodia gordonii; it is a lifesaver!!! It totally surpresses the appetite like nothing I have ever tried before! Give it a try; you can get it on ebay for pretty cheap.
Make sure & get the hoodia gordonii though; some products will say hoodia, but not gordonii, and this is not the same thing. Only the gordonii kind has the appetite surpressing effects...
I wish you luck! Let me know how you're doing if you decide to try it, k?
