this past weekend has been a nightmare which throws me back to my old eating habits as a security blanket. In 36 hours I lost a very close friend (unexpected) and a family member (who was recovering from an illness). I find myself eating I guess because I feel I have control of something and sweets have always been a comfort food for me all my life. Where many people can't eat when someone close dies or they are under a lot of stress, I am the opposite where I seek food. I have done so well on my diet and now am up 5 pounds just this week and I am afraid of losing control of my weight. Any advice from anyone to get out of this mind set of eating for comfort. I know it is wrong, I know I shouldn't but I just am doing it to ease the hurt. Thanks for listening to me and sending any advice. I know sparkpeople are great.
