Question Is anyone else a stress eater?

I can't stop eating at the moment. Nom Nom.

My clothes are getting tight!!! I just can't seem to think.about what I'm eating when I have so many other things going on in my head!!

I want to get back into exercising and eating healthy but feel like its impossible...

How do you get out the rut?? I'm normally quite good, but not under stress!

I eat when Im bored and have a baaaad sweet tooth. My solution? Just buy healthy, filling stuff instead of junk. Baby carrots, bananas, grapes, and similar fruits/veggies seem to be the best bet for me.

X2 but It only works about 30% of the time for me. Lol

When I'm *super* stressed I can't eat, anything less than dire and I'm a chowhound.

I tend to nibble too, when under stress. I try to stay with healthy snacks, but also find myself getting into naughty things. LOL. Instead of losing my appetite when something stressful is going on, it increases. (or so I think) Grrrrrr!

Today I can't stop. I had a banana, a bundle of grapes, 3 clementines, a chicken and apple sausage, two mini bite candy bars, and now I'm grubbing on chicken and rice. Not super unhealthy but I don't feel like this is the best choice but I'm out of gum and exhausted and edgy. Ahhh!

I can't eat when I'm stressed, but when I am bored I eat anything and everything. I hate the winter and every year I put on like 15 pounds from boredom. Right now I am eating hostess cupcakes even though we just got home from dinner.

When Im stressed I don't eat, although Im not a big eater anyways. Im one of these people who's constantly hungry because my matablism is so high so alot of the time I forget to eat because my body's just on hungry mode all the time.

Its really annoying and frustrating.

If there's food I might. But most of the time if I'm really stressed I just get really nauseous so eating isn't really first thing on my mind.

Now even when I'm not stressed I sometimes I lose track with what I have done and what I haven't so sometimes I may eat more than I should because someone will say something like 'hey bagels in the break room' and I'll grab one and three hours after constant phone calls and researching I forget that I've eaten -.-

I'm working on keeping a food journal though.
