Aww I'm sorry about your job hunni, we all have times when we go off track with our eating particularly when things are difficult in other areas of your life.

The important thing is that you havent let it go on too long and are getting back on the wagon. So you'll feel better in no time.

I'm sure you can do it. Good luck x


Yummy mummy to be!

Aw sorry to hear about your job. :(

BUT I think you need to do a bit more self-analysis here - why do you feel the need to comfort-eat (and particularly so many carbs) when you have bad news? :confused:

Food isn't a security blanket, it's just fuel for your body - or at least it shouldn't be a comfort blanket. ;)

You need to find something else to do to take your mind off it and distract you from eating when you have bad news or are having a low-mood day or you're never going to escape from your current fat-trap.

I think you should write yourself a letter. In it, explain what is making you feel bad, explain how you felt before you binged, how you felt while you were eating and how you feel now. Keep it somewhere prominent for now, on the fridge or the cupboard would do!

Next time you feel down and want to reach for food, reach for your letter first and sit down and read it. Give your logical mind time to catch up with your emotions. You may find that the urge to eat passes altogether, but even if you still can't resist eating you hopefully will have had a little thinking time, just enough to make sure that you eat something that's within your plan!

Good luck woth your restart and your jobhunting, I hope you are feeling a bit more positive by now. :)
