...

It is a good thing I have kids, because if I didn't, I would probably be at the grocery store buying a dozen donuts and 6 candy bars right now...

I know the feeling, Lyn! But mine is more along the lines of "It's a good thing I don't have a car..." because sometimes, I'm just too lazy to walk to the store for a sweets binge. Chin up (and if you have any very VERY dark chocolate, try melting a piece of it in your mouth with some sips of slightly sweetened dessert-y flavored tea - like caramel or vanilla; it may help!).

What goes up must come down... but then it goes back up again. Its just a downswing, you can totally do this ;)

Hang in there, Lyn! I lost my grandmother this week and have been fighting the urge to make a junk food run, so we're in this together!

I wish I could have borrowed your kids then, maybe they could have stopped me from over eating this week.
Hang in there!

When I get so stressed as to want to eat a lot late in the evening, I sit myself down and picture myself in all the cute clothes I can wear now, and think of all the fun things I can do now without being ashamed of how I look. I know this may sound shallow, but it's reflecting upon the restrictive "suit of fat" that I worked so hard to take off, the fat that kept me isolated and looking, well...fat.

I try to keep my closet beautiful, so that I can go there and see the rewards of my hard work. Again, not to sound shallow, but to spin my thinking, change the way I think about what the stress eating will do to me tomorrow and reflect upon the rewards of where I am now. I know food addiction is hard, but just as we would like any friend that is an alcoholic to not drink late at night when stressed, we must find tools to keep from our addiction, also. We would have some bad feelings, knowing a friend with addictions had "fallen of the wagon", and sometimes I think it's the same for us, if we "fall off", but do we hold ourselves to the same standards as we would like others with different addictions to hold themselves to? Overeaters Anonymous is another way, also.

It's so easy to lose sight during stress and wake up with the remorse hangover, but you have lost a lot, I hope you can find peace.

Keep it strong for your kids, and yourself! Treat your body as an object worthy of respect, if you can -- we're all pulling for you!
