Default frustrating folk

Does anyone else find they have someone in their lives that stresses them out so much they could eat an entire wedding cake?

Sometimes I feel that way, and I don't like it.

Yup. What happened with me was not only eating, but drinking, too. I quit cold turkey (drinking) and started healthy eating on plan, now I just smoke 3 packets a day to ward off stress - cos the stress people are my own parents, and at the moment I am with them. Now I don't want to eat, I want to scream.

Yeap and that's one of the reasons I don't talk to them on a regular basis

I did feel that way, when I was married to my husband... Eventually, it took awhile, I got sick of it, realized it was not healthy for me & left. Now, 2 months later, I'm much happier, have a different out look on life & best of all, I'm still losing weight! It got a lot easier to stay on plan when I didn't have that added stress in my life

Oh Yeah! I feel like binging when I have to deal with certain people, but then I just get mad at myself and wonder why I was even considering punishing myself with food just because THEY are the ones being annoying. *sigh*

I just 'broke up' with a friend from college I've known for almost 20 years... She gave me that kind of stress on a regular basis and I just couldn't take the negativity anymore. I needed to de-tox my life a little bit.

my stepdad likes to brag about all the exercise he does and when he eats salads. as an overweight person, this makes me want to binge on anything and everything and take a 3 day nap afterward just go against him.

Over the last 10 months of my new healthy lifestyle I realized a few people in my life are doing me more harm than good. I cut them loose, it was hard at first but I realize healthy relationships are better for me. You might want to try family therapy or just try to talk to them about what bugs you.

Sometimes I realize that it is my reaction that is the problem. I am not always successful in controlling my reactions though. My dear daughter is one. We go through times when things are good. Then there is a period where we only yell at each other. I am having this problem with my mother currently, but cutting her out is not an option because of the health problems and care she and my father need.
So the only part I can control is my reaction. I go for lots of walks.
