Eating when you feel bad

I have been unemployed for a couple of weeks now and the only thing that worries me is emotional eating. I have been smart enough not to keep a lot of junk food in the house. And money being at a premium, I can’t go out and buy whatever I want. But some times I worry that spending too many hours near a fridge while sitting at my computer (my office is in the family room currently) could be a hazard to my achievements so far. Also, I am having a little trouble setting the ground rules for my daily routine. Any suggestions?

    Stop, think method….before munching on a sugary treat, stop and think if this is a good choice and how will you feel afterwards…that works for me most of the time..

    I read the other day on the Biggest Looser board (I think it was there) that this lady lost a big chunk of weight and the only treat she allowed herself was 9 kisses a day. Let me tell you something, I tried that and ate the whole bag in three days (with help I admit, but I did not know that when I first finished the bag and you can imagine the guilt). So the solution for me is simple. If I feel like chocolate, and keep in mind I am a chocoholic, I will buy the chocolate bar when I feel like it. Most days, the thought of having to get out of my house and drive to the store is enough to stop me. But, some times, the 1 mile walk to the local Wallgreens burns enough calories that I don’t have to worry about that part. But I will try to remember to think before I stuff my face. I have never thought of doing that before. It goes towards actually thinking about the eating instead of some external excuse. Thanks. RNC
