Food almost addicted to it... psychology -anyone gain weight when going back to work

Feelingfortyisntfun · 12/01/2019 09:12

I’m really struggling now I’m back to work. Previously had success with low carb but prior to going to work and when I come in from work I feel really miserable unless having a “treat”. It’s childish response but I just think “I want food”.

Work is work it won’t go away. I have children so can’t get in and go for a walk. I’ve tried grazing on healthy things but if I’m honest it’s like a manic frenzy.

Although I thought I was overeating over Xmas I didn’t gain weight. It’s the opposite to veryone else my weight is coming back on now the stress of work is back.

I know what I’m doing but I don’t know what to do about it the obvious thing is don’t do it but I feel so tearful and down when I’m not using that as a crux.
