Stress Eating

My week has been a total and complete rollercoaster of stress at work and at home - and I have turned to food.

I was good on Monday, but those damn Hershey Kisses that sit on my desk were screaming my name Tuesday and yesterday afternoon when I just HAD it!!! I'm trying very hard not to beat myself up but this is the first time since March that I let myself go two days in a row. I'd have a cheat meal once a week, but that would be it. Once I eat those kisses, I'm done. I'll eat and eat and eat all the things that I know I shouldn't be eating.

The kisses were thrown out this morning - the cycle of binge eating from stress stops today.

Any tips or similiar stories would be appreciated.

    The only tip that I would have given is the one you already figured out - KEEP THE KISSES OFF YOUR DESK!!! lol!!

    Actually, that applies to anything that we tend to go overboard on (for whatever reason). My BF and I decided that June is "No Ice Cream Month" since we had both been eating too much of it. I realized that the reason I was eating so much was because it was IN MY FREEZER!! Ice cream is my weakness so I've decided that once the month is over, I'm just not going to buy it at the grocery store.That way, if I really want ice cream, I will need to make a concerted effort to go get some.

    Good for you for figuring out that proximity is often a part of why we binge.

    I had thought about how stressful it would be to have to buy new, bigger, pants and I was done. The weight might not be budging, but I've been feeling a lot better about myself these past few months. Thanks for the encouragement! :flowerforyou:

    I've been good with the chocolate, it's the lay's tater chips that's been my downfall. . not going to throw them out(waste of money), but once the bag goes, I'm buying smaller snack bags, and bringone a day to work, and no more. . .::SIGH:
