Sometimes when I am stressed I think of the Five D's (I call them)

Drink - water, tea, coffee, etc.
Distractions - crafts, read, take a walk, play with dog, computer etc
Distance - get away from the food.... - walk the dog, go outside, etc.
Deep breathing - take some deep breaths to calm yourself
Destroy - better to dump dish soap on an unplanned food you are about to eat -- than to eat it.

Move ticker, move!

I can't lose 100 pounds....but, just maybe I can lose five pounds twenty times.
