Stress Eating

Stress eating!!!

Between my uncle's death and now a very sweet beautiful lady from our church passing I am just not feeling with the program!
I've been stress eating and then as a result of feeling guilty about it I then... yes, eat some more.

I know I need to just give myself a break right now and not worry about it.  But I also do not want to throw in the towel either.  This is a slippery walk.

I will try to make conscious choices and not mindlessly eat.  There's lots to keep me busy and with a sore foot (not sure what I did to it) exercise isn't in the plan right now.  But still, lots and lots to do.
I will try to keep busy so as not to turn to food.


  1. I'm very sorry to hear about the lady from your church passing, and with your uncle. I'm sure there is lots to be done. Don't beat yourself up for not following the "plan" with eating. I know this is a tough time and I know God will help you through it as well as our wonderful family. (((HUGS)))

  2. Perhaps you just need to give yourself time to feel God's love hugging you tight and comforting you.

    Meantime try to choose food that is healthy. Not all comfort food will sabotage you.


  3. Hi, thanks for your great comments on my blog.
    I'm sorry to hear about the sadness in your life at the moment.
    I hear you on stress eating. It's something I struggle with. All I can say is that writing my feelings down helps me with stress a bit, so keep blogging how you're feeling. I also thinks it's important to pause now and then to reflect on how you feel, rather than keeping busy all the time. Because if you acknowledge your feelings and express them through words, then hopefully you won't end up expressing them through eating?! I'm going to try this out myself!
