I so understand how stress can effect your eating, except that I have found that since I have started dieting that now when I am stressed I just simply dont want to eat and am having trouble getting my RDI in at all. I guess that is good for weight loss but not good for energy levals. Like you I have been under a great deal of stress lately and I have really just wanted to hide my head under the covers and not come out and eat or do anything but sleep and pretend that it will all go away, unfortunatly the source of my stress is my 13 year old son and since he isnt going to go away and he needs me to be a mom to him, I cant hide, so I put on a happy face and pretend all is well with the world and just smoke more and drink more diet sodas and well simply dont eat. I have a friend that is worried about that and wants me to talk to someone about that but I keep telling her I just have no appetite, I just feel sick to my stomach so much of the time and I know that it is stress related. I did tell her that I was going to make a conscious effort to at least eat 1500 calories a day but truly that has been a struggle for me too. Of course some days are better than others but the last 3-4 weeks for me have been really really hard.
I hope things get better for you Round particularly on the job end and you get the new job if it is what you want, I also hope that the other things in your life stressing you out come to an end soon also. For me it looks like I am going to have to learn how to deal with and handle the stress cause it wont be resolving anytime soon, but thats ok its part of being a mom. I am proud of you that you were able to pretty much maintain your weight, that shows that you were making good choices and you should be proud of that good job. Hope you have a good week this week let me know if I can help you in any way
