Work stress is how I put on most of my excess weight and I have always had a problem with stress eating. But this time I am not letting work stress sabotage my goals.

When I am craving something fattening and filled with fat and salt (fatty/salty foods are my trigger foods) I tell myself that sabotaging my goal and all the work I have done is only going to make me feel worse.

When I stress eat, I am looking to numb myself. I have learned to either exercise the emotions out so that I don't need to numb myself, or if I really need to numb myself, to numb myself in a non-food way such as zoning out in front of the tv, or playing a video game.

Maybe that is not the zenful ideal for my life, but at least it is keeping me from stress eating right now.
