Stress Eating

Today is the day!!! I wake everyday always with the mindset of starting a new diet. My weigh fluctuates so I’m always dieting. I have every intentions of sticking with a low carb, low sugar, high protein diet. I keep things in the refrigerator to make salads. What happens, is about 3pm everyday, I get really hungry. I see family and friends eating, I pass my favorite restaurants, I see commercials with food and I can’t help myself. I don’t have the willpower to walk away, I never have. I get down on myself and food is my comfort zone. Another bad habit I have is eating late and then going to bed with a full stomach.

Does anyone else have this problem? After I eat, I always tell myself that the food wasn’t worth it or the dessert I ate wasn’t worth it. I’m not much of a candy fan, except for M&M’s. I love M&M’s and will never turn them down.

I’ve been told that my problem with food isn’t the quantity I eat, because I eat like a bird, but its the combination of foods. They say I eat as though I’m still a teenager.

Coming from the South, I love sweet tea. I have it for breakfast, lunch and dinner. Now that I’ve moved North, the sweet tea isn’t the same. I’ve learned to quit asking for it and order water or Pepsi. I’m a coffee lover, so I live at Starbucks. I use to do two a day, now I do two a week. I’ve cut way back, but I wanting to do better.

I know I’m always going to have stress in my life. We all will, one time or another. For me, this is a everyday battle that I’m working to change.


I’m a southern woman with big dreams, but, I’m just not great at achieving them. I’m a emotional woman that takes everything to heart. I forgive easily, but will never forget. I’m a people pleaser. I’m a lover not a fighter. My two boys are my first priority over myself.
