Hi, SKINNYMISSY2008 !!
Perhaps part of the problem is that your goals are too ambitious and you're setting yourself up for failure as a result. Start with some simple changes first. Don't look at weight loss or good health with an all or nothing mentality, if the only healthy thing you were to do for yourself today was to drink 8 glasses of water, that's still a step in the right direction.
Set some simple goals for the week to get started. Example, if you're not used to eating 6-9 servings of fresh fruit and veggies, set a goal to eat 2-3 servings each day for one week. if you're not used to drinking 8 glasses of water, set a goal to eat 2-4 glasses each day for one week. if you're not used to regular exercise, set a goal to take a 30 minute walk each day for one week. Once you've achieved these goals, then you set new ones.
This doesn't have to be "all or nothing". One small change CAN change your life !! So, why not start by creating a few simple goals. Nothing too ambitious, do be practical as well as realistic.
As far as stress, I'm a firm believer that stress is a neglected aspect of weight gain. If a person could reduce their stress, they'd automatically reduce their waistline. Find other ways to reduce your stress that don't involve food. Try talking a daily walk. Walking is not only great cardiovascular exercise, it's a great way to reduce stress too. Get some fresh air. If it's cold outside, put on a fleece top and wear some gloves.
The universe doesn't stop when it gets cold out. You still have to go to work. You still have to take the kids to school if you have kids. You still have to go to school if you're working on your degree. Stuff has to get done. we're not bears, we don't get to hibernate. it would be nice, but it's not happening.
