Welcome. The same scenarios that you described trigger a lot of my eating too. If I were caring for 7 children and training for a new career I don't think I would ever put the food down. I applaud you too! JoAnn

Welcome to the team...sounds like you are well on your way to understanding what triggers your emotional eating...I'm believe learning to pay attention to ourselves will help us overcome it!! Best wishes to you as you move forward on your journey!!
Oh...and 7 kids...you're wonder woman!! I applaud you!!

I have come to so many conclusions with myself and still feel so lost about everything! I know a huge problem of mine is that I eat when I'm stressed, bored, tired, thirsty, angry, worried... The only time I don't eat is when I'm hyper and happy. Which is why I'm a caffeine junky, which would totally work except that most things that contain high amounts of caffeine also contain high amounts of calories and lots of other bad things. Not to mention, being a caffeine junky is bad for my health in and of itself.
I'm a mom of 7 kids. I work part time as a dog groomer. I am starting massage therapy school on Monday (for the second time, had to withdrawl the first time due to complications during a pregnancy).
I've battled weight issues all my life and it has proggressively gotten worse as I've aged and had children.
