YAY - go you!!! My main stress busters so far have been:

* change locations -- go out, take a walk, work in my car, whatever I need to do to remove myself from easy to get food places

* snack on something fulfilling but light -- I think about what I'm craving, and find something to beat it -- hot peppers, peppermint lifesavers -- I find hot and spicy can beat a lot

* Get a giant bottle of water with a touch of lemonade splashed in

* Just go to sleep -- for me, high stress / cravings means I'm tired. Even a 10 minute cat nap can do lots!

Hope this helps next time, but doesn't sound like you need it, sounds like you've got it under control!

I may not manage it next time it flares up but this time I talked myself through the raving stress and the cravings for comfort food that followed until I didn't have time to go "score" any more food and had to get busy with work. By the end of the evening I WANTED to be brave and face down the urges and emotional tides. I know I will feel especially glad tomorrow morning when I wake up, knowing I stuck with my nutrition plan and did not cave in. emoticon
