I think since you have more applications that are under review you should have a plan in place if you get news you dont want to hear. I dont know what that would be for you. For me it's keeping snacks completely out of the house and mentally preparing myself through visualisation.
Before reaching for the food, drink a big glass of water. That you help reduce how much you can eat at any one time. Make sure you are not eating just empty calories. If you have to overeat, at least give your body some nutitional value too. Then forgive your self and move one. Don't let yourself spiral out of control.

On June 24, I joined a gym and lost around 9-10 pounds in 11 weeks. I was exercising regularly and eating healthy, with the exception of a few setbacks.
