I am a stress eater and a trauma starver. I do not struggle with food, but if I am stressed I will absolutely eat things I wouldn’t otherwise. When I am in severe stress overload, I can’t eat. I lost 12 lbs in the two weeks surrounding my mother’s death. I know I am a mess sometimes but I am aware and get it in check.

I do! It’s terrible. My problem is I enjoy ALL foods. Vegetarian hummus wrap?! Yes please! Giant bloody steak with mashed potatoes?! I’ll take 2! I just love food. When I actually get around to working out, I crave milkshakes. It really defeats the purpose. Lol

When I am happy I eat and eat and eat.. however, when I am sad or stressed out I don’t have an appetite at all and just nurse a queasy stomach all day.

I have done this since I was a child! When sad or stressed I would make myself feel better by eating junk food, and when I was happy about something I would eat to celebrate. In my case it developed into addiction which I am getting help for. Apart from this past few days where I relapsed, I have done well for the past couple of months! If you, unlike me, have good self control, use it!

*raises hand* Hey-oh. Stressful day? Trader Joe’s cookie butter goes on toast, which then goes into my mouth.

I definitely do, and I’m not even the type who doesn’t eat when they’re too stressed lol.

Happy? Stuff my face

Sad? Stuff my face

Scared? Stuff my face

Anxious?… you get the drift

I was joking about this with my husband earlier today! I got some not-so-good news today and he’s away, so I told him “I think I’m going to put some donuts on this.” Mmm mini blueberry stuffed!

I eat when I’m happy, bored or mildly stressed. When I’m sad I can’t eat.

Me. I was going to ask this same question actually. I hate that habit of mine, being a fitness nut. But after a long day…chocolate is my best friend (and worst enemy). I even know I can talk myself out of it. 

 

Lets start a support group. Whenever you wanna stress eat, look to others to talk you down! Haha.
