Eat It Up

It’s no secret that I’ve been a bit…stressed lately.  When I get stressed (read:  stressed, not depressed) I eat more.  I still eat the same at meals, but at night I dive into my secret stash of sweets.  It’s not really a secret, but it’s in my room, so that’s what I call it.  In other words, MINE all MINE!  When everything’s going well, I’ll take a piece here and there, but not daily.  For the last few weeks, I’ve gone through a lot more than usual.  In other words, I just realized that I eat my feelings (gulp).   It’s not healthy and certainly not good for my waistline!  So, I ask you, dears, what do you do when you get stressed?  Do you hide out?  Do you yell at everyone?  Do you meditate?  What?

    I get ridiculously bummed out and then blog about it in my own little pity party! I hope you get some relief…it’s bound to get better….right?

    I totally eat…like a pig. This is why I have gained about 7 million pounds in the last year. Let me know if you figure out a surefire cure!

    I call you. 🙂 Oh, and I don’t buy anything that tastes too good!

    Next time, just step away from the candy and call me. And if you get M. tell him to step off and find me!

    AP – Yeah, that usually helps, but lately it’s just making me feel more pathetic. I know it’ll get better, just sometimes it’s hard to remember that.

    KC – Well, depression is about the only thing that’s ever made me lose weight (except for after childbirth), but I’m not planning on letting it come to that.

    Honey – I will, only I’ll tell him to “POP OFF”!

    I shut down. No talking or communicating with people I love
