I am out of control. I always realize the next day what happened the previous night - that it's emotional eating.
The last couple of weeks have been busy at work. Keep in mind that our contract is still in limbo so I don't know if I will have a job at the end of the year - rumors are it will at least be extended 6 months, maybe another year (I think that is part of the stress too).
Anyway, evenings on busy days, I am just out of control. I'll eat like a pound of pasta (seriously - a pound of pasta). The thing is I'm doing this mindlessly. I don't even think about how I'm going to feel afterwards or the next day. I'm focus on how good the pasta is going to be.
I know I am not helping myself by not controling my eating - I'm out of the habit of logging. Everyday, the scale creeps up a little more.
Anyway - FEEDBACK PLEASE - I want to know how you do it - how do you keep the emotional eating at bay? How do you snap yourself out of the funk and realize what you are doing?
