Hello and welcome! I am also an emotional eater, but not only do I eat when I'm stressed or tired, I also eat when I'm bored, or celebrating, or any other time I feel I deserve a treat (which happens surprisingly often LOL). And it sounds like you have the same perfectionist mentality that I do - if I cheat once, then the day isn't perfect, and I have the right to eat more. That's been a hard one for me to get over.

I have found the calorie tracker to be such a huge help. My goal is 1550 calories or less, but I figure if I allow myself an extra 250 occasionally I won't derail myself too much. So on the days where I cheat, I still log my binge food (the trick is to log it right after you eat it!) because it's amazing how often I will still be under 1800 calories. Then not only do I get to have my handful of chocolate chips or whatever, I don't get the "well the day is blown" feeling so I tend to quit. Maybe this will help you too, good luck!

I'm 31 yr old Mom that lives in the Cincinnati, OH area - my husband isn't home often because of his job, so I do it all! And sometimes that leaves little or what I consider NO time for Mama time! I need some friends to help keep me motivated and stay on track!
I am an emotional eater - I get stressed, depressed or just tired I have a tendancy to eat. I'll do fine all day long at work, and after dinner I need/want SUGAR! Once I "cheat" I have a tendancy to think "Ok my day is blown", so I continue on in my binge.
I want to be able to go to my kids school and run into parents that I went to school with and NOT feel ashamed - I want to feel sexy again so I actually WANT to have sex with my husband and feel that he wants to with me - I want to do marathons, and be active with my children- and yes, I even want to get a double look now and then from an attractive man that I pass by.
I was always an athlete in school - My body is made to be pushed, but I always feel too tired to 'do me', and that's what I am going to do now. No matter what!
