Back in a Rut Again!!!

Good morning -
I have fallen back into my old habits once again. I am an emotional eater. I've had a lot of stress in my life lately. My husband has some health issues. I get so upset and nervous, I seem to eat - and I'm eating foods I don't even like. That's what is frustrating me. The food has taken me over instead of me controlling the food. I hate it when the food wins.
I am trying to make myself realize that food will not cure all my problems and only create more if I let it. That is the key - If I let it - I don't want this and I'm starting today to turn myself around and eat healthier. We bought some muffins from Sam's club - didn't even look at the nutritional information until I got them home. YIKES!!! 600 calories for one muffin - 300 fat calories. How dumb is that. We decided to eat just a half muffin at a time. I am feeding the half muffins to my husband and will get back to my healthy eating plan.
I want to plan my menu for a week at a time. I find that when I do this, I stick to my plan much better than if I don't plan my meals and snacks. I will take each day as it comes and do the best I can. I need to put my words to work and not just keep saying that I'm going to do this - I'm tired of the way I look and feel.
