Stress Eating

I have a bit of a stressful day ahead of me tomorrow. I am not looking forward to it, but I am going to do my best to not let my emotions get the best of me when it comes to my eating. Old habits may die hard, but that doesn’t mean that they can’t die at all.

- 4 glasses of water
- 3/4 cup low fat lemon meringue yogurt with 1 cup Rice Krispies cereal
- 1 cup jalapeƱo potato chips
- 2 pieces whole wheat toast with light peanut butter and light strawberry jam
- 1 apple fritter
- 1 mug eggnog steamed skim milk
- 1 bite glazed doughnut
- 1 orange cream filled chocolate bar
- 1 strawberry cream filled chocolate bar
- 1 apple
- 1 1/2 cups macaroni and cheese with pepper
- 3/4 cup steamed broccoli with margarine
- 1 cup meatballs with gravy
- 12 large crackers with light cream cheese and hot pepper jelly

- 6 1/2 hours of walking around while shopping


  1. I used to have a lot of problems with stress eating. I recommend deep breathing and drinking lots of water. You can get through it.

  2. I am a HUGE emotional eater!
    Over the last 11 weeks I have made many lasting changes. Little by little over time they have stuck. I did not see it as i went but looking back it amazing!

  3. Stress is definitely my downfall. I am trying to climb out of that right now. Good luck to you!

  4. If you have time, look at Hungry Girl's newsletter for today. She has information on how stress and too little sleep messes up our weight. Good sound stuff.

  5. I completely understand being in stress eating mode. And for me, it always occurs around holiday time, when I'm cooking, cleaning, etc. I'm trying to do less cooking this year, by purchasing more of the food items already prepared. It helps me!

  6. I am right there with you on stress eating! And i'm nervous because I'm a college student...and finals are coming up. Finals= prepackaged processed foods and pizza. I don't know what i'm going to do!
    Check out my weight loss blog- maybe give me some tips. Haha

  7. Keep on keeping on 266. Seriously. Awesome.
