How many of you ladies find that when you get upset or stressed. I have officially noticed it because I have gained 22 lbs in 2 months. I am almost tipping the scales in at 300.

Yes, it calms me down and is way easier and more effective than drugs.

I didn't used to, but I do sometimes.  It depends on what we have in the house, truthfully!

I go the opposite way, whenever Im upset, stressed, depressed, angry etc, I kinda get sick to my stomach, if the feelings are intense enough, sometimes I even throw up. Whenever my dr asks me where in my body Im feeling a certain emotion, its always in my stomach. Sheesh, as funky as my emotions are I should be skinny, but Im not, not even close.

i'm actually less likely to eat when I'm depressed or anxious. but when I'm happy I might overeat so it's something I have to be careful of.
