KathyG Posted December 10, 2007 Report Share Posted December 10, 2007 Has anyone else found that bereavement is causing them to re-adopt old bad habits? How can you stop this from happening?Stress eating has always been a problem for me. Since January, I've lost a lot of weight thanks to a good diet/exercise plan. I'm happy about this and would like to lose more pounds. Up to now, the plan had (I thought) killed my cravings for sweets and carbs. But since Bill died, my appetite is completely out of whack. I've been sick with a cold, too. Either I don't want to eat at all, or I want the wrong kinds of food (cookies, candy, pasta, etc.).I don't want to ruin the success I've had. I do force myself to eat when I'm not hungry, just for nourishment. When I do, I stick to my diet plan but don't eat all the food I'm supposed to have. But then when I feel really depressed, that's when overeat the "bad" foods. How can I get my control back? It's so hard for me to do even simple things now.
