Emo Eater Thy Name is Devra

I wish it were simple and I could say "Oh, when I am stressed, I eat." Then I could work on better stress management techniques and be done with it. But it's not stress that tempts me to put ear straps on a bag of Oreos and attach it to my face like a feed bag. Nope. I eat when I am happy. Not surprisingly, I am finding this to be counterproductive to weight loss.

What did I do in my happiness today? I ate three Skinny Cow mint ice cream cones. Granted this is far better than what I used to do which was gleefully engage in a three-way with Ben & Jerry.

It is doubtful that I am alone in stomping my feet and yelling "No fair!"because I know people out there who aren't driven to stuff their pie hole based upon emotions. I want to know how you people stop at just one Oreo????? HOW! TELL ME! I WANT TO BE YOU!

Now that my tantrum is over, I'm going to sit back, relax and have a big drink.
Water people. I am drinking water!
In the future I will include a post on "Leaving the house and the importance of mapping out bathrooms locations when you actually drink the recommended daily allowance of water."

I used to have self control. I think the key was having to log EVERYTHING that went into my mouth in at - that helped. Something you might want to try? Dunno.

Sometimes it helps me to know exactly how many calories, fat, etc., I would consume by chowing on junk food. At least it's an informed pigout. Or it might give you enough pause for the moment to pass.

I do the same as Susan. If I know the cookie is gonna blow my chance at a dinner that consists of something more than carrots (and I make some yummy dinners!), I'm OK.

And sometimes I just resign myself to yet another turkey sandwich and carrots.

Sometimes I do exactly what the horse in the picture is doing.
