    Unhappy Rant instead of eating - hope it works!!!

    Hi all, having such a rubbish time of it at work at the moment my emotional eating has been heavily tested the past few weeks. I have been up and down on the scales like anything.

    Today i've just made a BIG boo boo mistake, but the customers is lovely and it's all OK but it's cause i've been so stressed that i made the mistake, now all i want to do is go out at lunchtime and buy a BIG sandwich and crisps and chocolate and eat it all. I've not been 100% this week already but if i'm good from now till WI on Monday i think i can get a little weight loss.

    I have the two options in front of me - the rational one that says stay in control and be good and imagine the happiness i'll feel with a loss on the scales, then the other option that is like it's fine - make yourself feel better for like half hour (eating) then be lower than before.

    I can write this stuff down rationally but the feeling to binge is so overwhelming......

    Hopefully i can stay strong and go out at lunchtime and get some chicken and salad.

    Just wanted to rant and release some pressure - thanks xXx

    How about getting some chicken and salad but also picking up a freddo bar and a packet of low syn crisps?

    At least that way you can have crisps and choc but still feel 100% in control.

    Hi I know how u feel as work is not good at the moment so tend to want to eat Wed I convinced myself I would feel better if I ate my weight in crisps ( that's a lot of crisps) however I managed to have a word with myself on way home. And had 2 packets of multipack ringos at 7 syns and felt good that I had comforted myself within syns. So if u desperatelywant the crisp and choc have them just the low syn version as opal Lilly suggested x good luck :-)
