Either way, self-care is the Rx. Get takeout from another place that serves so you have something to eat in the house - that you can pop in the microwave. That loss and misery diet is brutal; I was on it one time and ended up 50 pounds less than I am now (which is about 30 pounds over normal).

These days I have at least one really easy meal ready to go each day. I just set up a small crockpot with steel cut oats, raisins, a dash of salt, and a quart of boiling water, and I'll have about 3 days of breakfasts (it reheats well.) Even if it means keeping a tub of cottage cheese in the fridge and a case of honeybuns in the freezer, give yourself something really easy for a meal.
