    Hi Paula

    Thats me too hun and it can happen EVERY day!

    If Im stressed by the kids first thing in the morning it can send me reaching for the cereal bars! AND also if I have a feeling I may go over my points for the day then that can lead to an all out binge.

    I honestly don't know how to mentally deal with this problem! Anyone any tips / ideas??

    I don't tend to break my diet because I'm stressed out, BUT, I do use being stressed out as an excuse to break my diet. I know it sounds like the same thing, but it's really not, lol.

    I'm with Jools in that if I know I'm going to go over my points for the day then I usually end up completely throwing in the towel and going for a complete day long binge - which is not good. The thing is, I know I want to lose weight, I know that a day long binge will effect my weight loss more than just a few points or ONE treat, but for some reason it tends to send me into food overdrive, lol.

    Today will be a test. I'm having my treat night tonight (YEY!!) so the plan is to still try and make low point and sensible choices all day....I hope I can do that, because although it sounds mad because I'm still going over my points and having my takeaway tonight, I will still be so proud of myself if I can manage to 'be good' all day. It's a control thing - if I can still be sensible all day and then have my treat tonight, I will feel much more in control - pigging out all day and then having my take away as well will not only mean that I've completely undone all the hard work I've put in over the rest of the week, but it will also mean I've lost control of what I'm putting in my gob, and THAT is what I need to work on. If I can avoid doing that today then I really have come a long way! Wish me luck with that then eh, lol.

    tiredness is my real killer, this is when my resistance is at its very lowest & i'll eat whatever, even tho i have other things planned or in my bag. Yes stress is anoth one, but quite often the tiredness causes the stress !
