I'm tired of feeling like a blob. At 218 lbs, 5'4", I have never felt and looked so miserable. I started walking and watching everything I put in my mouth, counting calories, etc. I did really good for a week, lost 4 lbs! And then on Thursday one of my staff came in my office and decided she no longer wanted to work - anywhere - and quit on the spot! I had people out on vacation and was at bare bones staffing as it was. So, how did I handle this? I went into the break room, grabbed a piece of cake that I had previously declined that day and wolfed it down. But that wasn't enough, I then hit the large container of Red Vines and a bag of chips. It's like I couldn't control myself! And, of course, I didn't feel any better when the binge was over - just angry at myself. I am a healthcare professional and feel like a healthcare mess - I so desperately want to get this weight off so that I feel better physically and mentally, as well as have a healthier image. I am surrounded by stress - bad marriage, elderly parents, upper management position. Any suggestions to overcoming stress eating would be appreciated.
