    I don't eat when I'm stressed. I've lost weight in the last two years and my sister-in-law keeps telling me I'm being mean to her because I won't give her my "dieting secret". My "dieting secret" is "dad has stage IV cancer" and I don't think she wants to lose weight that badly. She is also a stress eater, so I don't think it would work for her.

    Read his book. There's a bunch of places in there like that. And no, I'm hardly picking on him—I have my moments…

    So sorry about your dad! No weight loss, no matter how badly needed, is worth what you're going through. I hope your SIL isn't serious but if she is, you have every right to set her straight. While you're helping to take care of your dad, remember to take care of yourself, too.

    Thank you.

    As for sister-in-law, she needs set straight about a lot of things. I try to avoid her, and (probably unfortunately, but it is hard for me to see it that way) she has been so bad about everything lately that my husband is on board with avoiding her, too. (She is his sister).

    It's true that stress can affect people badly. I lost 7-8 kg in 2 weeks after my father passed away, too. That was long time ago, though. I love eating, it's just we can't control stress and weight loss when we are depressed. I guess that also happened to Yuna. No wonder she said she's glad when it's all over (the Olympic). Poor girl, I hope JFS won't push Mao the same way Korean Fed pushed Yuna.

    Don't know about Mao, but in Yuna case, it was Korean public in general, not any federation there.

    I'm sorry to hear about your father. It's hard to look out for yourself at a time like this, but I hope you will be able to find and maintain some inner peace.

    That's true, and I too tend to not eat when I'm stressed and I lose weight. But stress can also make you eat a lot and gain weight.
    It's not just about not eating.
