I just read a post by juliastl about suddenly being obsessed with food and it got me thinking...cuz I'm in the same boat!
This past week has been crazy! I had a two day class on Tu/We followed by a test. On top of that, we've been remodeling our lobby at work since 9/15, but as it's winding down, everyone is pretty much stressed out and tempers are short. AND I put my mother is in the hospital Monday night (she's recovering nicely).
Anyway, during both days of the class, lunch was catered. Calorie-wise, neither day was too bad, but I think "what" I ate "in conjunction" with all the stress is what's causing me to CRAVE just about anything I see...BIG TIME!!!
I'm not "craving" any one particular food and that's what's so odd to me...
Since I started, I've been eating around 1500 cals per day. This week I've eaten, on average, about 1800 - 1900 per day, so I've managed to keep it pretty much under control, but that's what's scaring me..."pretty much" under control.
I've never thought of myself as a "stress eater", but I think I am.
So...what do I do with this little revelation??? I've been doing so well and haven't had ANY issues up until now and now that I realize I'm a stress-eater, I'm stressing over THAT!
Any thoughts would be greatly appreciated!
