I've always known that stress is a bad thing for weight gain (and well, our health in general). When I started my current job, the added hours and additional stress of the new job caused me to balloon 15 lbs in just 3 months. That had never happened to me before. Because my job is so stressful (it doesn't have to be; it's not like I'm an air traffic controller, and yes, I'm looking for a new one), I know how easy it is for me to gain weight at the drop of a hat. When I had that fast weight gain, I hadn't made any other lifestyle changes. I wasn't eating more to "cope" or eating differently. It was just the d*mn stress.
