  • I just realized that I read this article already -- during Final Exams LAST SEMESTER! And now it's that time again this semester! Duh! Pattern, habit.
  • Liked it. Emailed it. Printed it. I want to snark how I didn't like your article. In truth, it is one of the best 5,000 words or less pieces of "calm the f* down" inspirational tomes I've ever read. Thank you.

    Definitely the heart of the issue for me.
    I've spent my most determined weekend walking and weathering emotions without stress eating, and I was so disappointed that I didn't see any immediate weight loss.
    I watched a "comfort TV" programme, rather than eat, when a horrible rush of negatives hit.
    That means the job I planned to do is still hanging around.
    It feels worse before it gets better,
    This article makes me glad I stuck to my resolve as best I could, and proud I am actually still on track, even when it feels lousy!
  • This was extremely helpful advice.
  • Amazing! Thank you so much!
    This is a good article and one that I can relate to my job as a parking warden and animal officer. With the stress in the office and never know when u will be reported for a minor incident of how u talk to people and they take offence or someone accosting you because they are having a bad day or being threatened because u have to seize their dog. Those points will help me de-stress and not dwell on the situation for longer than need be. When it comes to food... I don't think that I emotionally eat due to stress... I walk about 6-8kms per day due to my job and the smells that whoof out of the shops is sometimes very hard to resist... but if I don't carry money with me then I cannot stop and buy... very good solution not to buy food when not hungry. Hope that makes sense!!
  • Oh how I needed to read this today. Especially since yesterday I ate non-stop in an effort to smother feelings I did not want to deal with. After reading this, I feel so much better about myself and the situation.
  • I must print this and put it in my office. Stressful work situations are often my triggers to "bad" eating days. Thanks so much for these tips.
  • You are best!!!!!!!!.......Thank you million times for this article,I will use all those tools next time I find myself eating when I am stress out:))
  • Great article! Thank you. I am a huge emotional eater. I think I eat emotionally or "stress" related probably 75% of the time.
    Wow your son was lucky, and thank God for you. Sometimes kids are pressured by their peers that they just want to prove that they aren't afraid of the consequences or just don't think of it. Glad to here your son is doing well.
  • I just printed this article. Two days ago my 17 year old son got alcohol poisoning, ended up being taken by ambulance from the Calgary Stampede grounds and in the hospital - he came this close to dying. We knew he was out and we knew he would be drinking (legal age in Alberta is 18 and he will be 18 in a couple of months), but as the 4th kid of 5, we trusted him to be responsible. We have always told the kids that you can have fun without drinking and that it is stupid to get to a point where you have no control. Anyways, his heart stopped, he stopped breathing, he had to be intubated and he had to have a catheter. His sister picked him up at the hospital yesterday morning. What an emotional morning! He talked about how much pressure he was under and how we gave him every opportunity and he had screwed up so badly. It broke my heart to hear him talk about himself like that and how he felt he had let everyone down - we don't feel like that. Anyways, we will obviously have to take some time and talk to him about all the stress he is feeling and how he can better deal with it. Thanks for this article - maybe we can work on learning to destress together. Me, I was good all day - but last night definitely hit the emotional eating binge. On the plus side - turkey pepperoni, Greek yogurt, poor baby. His negative self talk reminded me so much of where I was and how much I used to beat myself up over being fat, ugly, stupid, useless.....
  • I found this article to be very true and helpful I will definitely think before I put food in my mouth, I am an emotional eater and have been for a long time, I realize now that it is just an excuse for sabotaging myself, (yes I got all of that out of that article) I am very glad I read this article..
    This is very helpful, thank you.
