I am DEFINITELY a Stress Eater!

Voted Popular Blog Post: View All Popular Posts

Wednesday, January 23, 2013

I did so well last week - and the scale rewarded me:-) (Not that it always will, but it sure was nice:-)

Today (and some yesterday) I'm really, really craving bad stuff. Just anything.

I start a class tonight, 28 years after I completed my BS degree. I was an excellent student all those years ago, but I'm much older now. It's something new. I'm excited, actually. But it's still stressful. Good stress is still stress:-)

I'm trying not to be too hard on myself - today. And I have made some great choices. But I have a feeling that I won't do that all day:-)

As long as I get back to where I want tomorrow, I should be fine.

Progress not perfection, and I have made great progress in recognizing a trigger:-)

    I know what you mean...I have a tendency to make poor food choices when I'm stressed out, but remember how good it feels when you can put off those temporary cravings. Sometimes having a single serving of one of the foods can help, but I have trouble only eating one of anything I love to eat.

    I am also a stress eater. Three grand kids were here yesterday for lunch and supper. Did not stress out until after dinner. Then I ate a whole high fat candy bar! It was suppose to be for Feb 14, and hopefully a small
piece at a time. That did not happen! emoticon

    I am a stress eater also and did a lot of overeating last week also. Doing somewhat better this eat, but I really have a lot of challenges to overcome this week, with my crazy work schedule and also being surrounded by a kinds of junk food and sweets where I work at!! I am hanging in there and trying everyday to figure a way around this challenging situation--

    Being conscientious of it is key! I am also a stress eater. I throw all my counting out the window when I'm stressed. Working on it emoticon
