Stress, Anxiety, Laziness, Apathy, Boredom, Anger, Fear

These are the reasons why I make bad food choices and/or over-eat. There’s nothing new or unique about it. But, I just felt like writing it down now.

For the first five years, or so, of my Weight Watchers journey, I never touched a french fry – for the most part. Actually, the only time I ever ate french fries, like most Americans, was when eating out.  And, … Continue reading
