Who else gets the urge to eat when they’re stressed?!
I found out my petition to change some withdrawal grades was denied this morning, so I may not be able to pursue my MBA again. Which is somewhat devastating.
Shortly after that I realized I was wanting junk food, which is my typical reaction. I eat away my feelings.
Instead I’ve been texting a friend and keeping my eye on the prize: I need to fit in a wedding dress in less than a year. And I refuse to be this size when I get married. I only have until November to lose as much weight as possible before I’ll need to buy a new gown. I started off well, but I have to keep going down.
So- feeling beautiful on my wedding day is much more important than stuffing my face with junk-food today.
This is not easy, but I will not fail. Therefore I will not binge. I just have to keep thinking about that dress.
What do you do when you’re stressed? How do you avoid stress-eating? Any tips?
