set in and I am terrified. I've increased my exercise but can't get control of my eating! Help!!

Sorry to hear it, good luck with everything, hope you find a good job soon. Throw away any snack food in the house, leave only healthy Snacks. Keep a sandwich bag with dried fruit and raw nuts in your handbag so if you are outside and feeling peckish you can snack on them. You know your triggers best and can figure out how to counter them, you know the empty snacking won't take away the panic or fill up the emptiness inside. Good luck and I wish you all the best.

Take a deep breath, all is not lost. Eating won't help the job situation, only make you more depressed.

Take action, action precedes motivation.

Go back to writing down everything you eat, even the wrong things. Use a free app.

Update your resume. Make contacts. Make a list of where to apply. File for unemployment. Cut out unnecessary expenses - like junk food, eating out, flavored drinks.

Good luck. Come on here to vent - before you eat.
