Anyone else an emotional eater?

It has been an emotional rollercoaster ride for the past 2 weeks. First there was the 5 year anniversary of the death of my Papa, then my grandma was admitted into the hospital and during that time my brother was also admiitted into the hospital. And to top it all off...some major personal issues with DH, issues that have been killing me inside and that I don't know I'll be able to ever look past.  

I've always been an emotional eater since who knows when, but I've somehow pushed myself through it this past week. I don't know how I did it, but I did. Mostly probably because I've just been feeling sick to my stomach and was just full of disgust. It makes me sad that I have finally broken a plateu and am seeing results that I should be happy about, but I just can't seem to be excited.

Hugs, I'm sorry for all that is going on in your world!  I hope things improve for you.  Yes, I'm an emotional eater, which is why I have gained about 9-10 pounds the last few months :(  Getting back on track though :)

Thank you. As much as I want to get past everything that's happened, I just can't right now. It's too hard.

I'm sure you'll be able to pull through. At least you are getting back on track, you can do it.

I'm really sorry you're having a hard time but that's great that you were able to hold the over-eating at bay!  My  husband is a major stress-eater so I can understand a bit :(

It definitely wasn't easy, but I knew that I've been working hard and knew I would feel even worse if I was to back track.

I'm just like Tasha...I'm a stress and emotional eater and I've also packed on about 8-10 pounds in the last few months:(

I am also stress and emotional eater.  Every time I have to go to my in-laws house I eat like crazy the week before.  We go once a month if not more and I haven't been able to stop my stress eating.

Yes I defiantly am and my dh is too which makes it even harder. When I gave a bad day, he suggests ice cream.

I'm glad I'm not the only one. Just need to take things one day at a time.

I have never been an emotional eater....I know it is hard for those that are though. Good job on staying on track through the stress!
