I am opposite from most of you. If I am too busy, I don't eat, but then I get so hungry I binge on anything that I don't have to prepare. This especially happens when I've had a stressful day. I don't get bored anymore, so I can't say I eat when I'm bored...

I bring healthy, easy snacks to work and don't keep chips, pop and sweets on hand at home. I do have one day a week that I binge, to make sure that I don't fall off the wagon permanently. It gives me something to look forward to during the week and gives my brain a rest since I find it draining to think about what I'm eating constantly. Thankfully I cannot eat as much as I used to, so the binge days are not as detrimental to my weight loss anymore!

I always find shopping therapeutic. Even if it is for my kids, spouse, or someone else. I go to the dollar store if I don't have anything that I need to buy. I am also finding going for a run therapeutic, but it is really difficult to do with 2 small children in the house.
