This sounds so much like me. There are a few professions out there that are more like lifestyles than jobs. I am a teacher, and it consumes most of my life. Plus, I live an hour away from any large shopping centers so buying anything I need becomes a gigantic ordeal. I teach Drama and obtaining props and supplies requires luck, family members' help, ordering things online months in advance, and many weekends spent looking for stuff.
The fortunate thing (for my stress level at least) is that I have no children and my husband is very helpful and understanding.
Making myself check into Sparkpeople everyday really helps me track how my emotions and stress level influence my eating. I am happy to say that since I began teaching a year 1/2 ago, I have actually lost close to 10 pounds.
