A bag of Lay's Potato Chips

Yep, that's what I've eaten over a period of days...Tomato and Basil-not the individual size, but the full bag. Mindless eating-drug like eating. I'm not trying to sound dramatic, but just describing the truth.
To honor the privacy of others-I'll just say it's been a very sad  few days, full of worry and fear. I don't drink, so I ate.   Obviously, I still go to food in times of crisis.
However---today is a new day...the chips are gone...there is hope...and I have a lot to be grateful for.
So that's my story.  Blessing to you all...and a few for myself.


  1. I'm sorry; I hope the stress passes quickly!

  2. Today is fresh and new! I totally get the over eating, emotional eating. I really don't emotionally eat that often anymore, more like out of control binge eating. The good thing is that my body so far has forgiven me each time. I hope your body and mind forgive yourself.
    I am so grateful that I don't drink! We have far fewer calories to worry about!
    Have a wonderful Wednesday!!!

  3. I am sorry you are going through this. Hope all feels better soon. xoxo

  4. HI Jeri,
    Buy, it seems like stress is catchy lately. A tip I have learned when eating snacks, look at the bag and see what it says is a serving size and put that in a bowl and put the bag away.
    Then you only eat a serving size. Try that next time.
    It's OK, no big deal. I hope everything will be better today.
    Have a great day :-)

  5. I used to do the same. Why do we think a big bag of chips will fix it? Ugh

  6. Jeri, I'm sorry you're going through a bad few days. I hope everything worked out and you're feeling better. It's hard to concentrate on good eating when our worries consume us. I don't think one bag will de-rail you too much.
