Erica, Thanks for your comments on my log "Weight Gain/Loss Timeline."
I'm so sorry to hear about your financial troubles right now. I'm unemployed too and will have to file for bankruptcy in October if I do not get a job soon. The stresses, worries about all this makes me want to eat like crazy.
What I have done is starting to spend time outdoors. I hike, but walking does just as well. I've also started jogging. These activities help me to deal with this hard time, instead of eating.
I too feel like crying. When I feel like that I let myself cry. It is so healthy. But then I don't eat. I go for a walk to feel better.
These times are so hard on so many people right now. Just remember you are not alone.
