I do great at counting calories and exercise, but when I get stressed out everything goes out the window and this is very often since I have 3 kids and bills and a job where they are always eating. Which the work eating isn't my problem it's the at home eating that kills my diet. I just get so stressed and muchie.

The only way to resolve this for long term success is to figure out how to manage your stress or how to deal with it. The kids, bills, and job are never going to go away - the weight will keep piling on if you don't figure something out. Find ways to relieve the stress - read, shower, walk, exercise, massage... Make time for those things. Remove yourself from the situation when possible - go outside and breathe.

Another option is to realize you are stress eating and refuse to continue - journal your stress and how you are feeling. Or make sure you have healthy snacks to replace the junk - veggies are your best bet for lower calorie options.

Allow for an extra cushion of 100-200 calories if all else fails.
