    Depressed And Bored

    It's a huge disadvantage for me because it always seems to happen right after I've been doing so well with eating healthy. A rough week, too much stress, or just plain boredom and I'm eating lots of junk again. It started back in high school and it's still going on now, 4 years...

    I told someone once that I tend to eat more when I'm sad or angry or I'm about to start my period and they joked about it saying "damn that must happen alot". It hurts. I don't even realize I'm doing it until I notice how many food containers are open in front of me or...

    My Eating Would Get Out Of Control If I Was Upset

    I think the first time I realized I was "chubby" was when I was in Jr High. My parents did not want to admit it so they said I was going to have a growth spurt and it would go away. But it did not go away. I would lose 10 and gain 15 or 20. As you all can relate this wore down...

    Six Thousand Calorie Weekend

    and when I say 6000 cal weekend, I mean that's 6000 cal per day over a three-day weekend. I must've been feeling particularly masochistic when I added all of that up last night. There were so many other things I could have, should have, done. But I just couldn't bring myself to...

    Which Is Very Bad

    I've been eating a lot when I'm simply bored, and especially lately since I'm feeling some intense bouts of loneliness and depression.  It's settling on my hips and I can grab a handful.  I couldn't do that a mere 3 weeks ago.
