I also lost some weight after retirement because I am no longer "stress eating". Other than that I have no control whatsoever of my diet and eat whatever I want whenever I want it.
I have the opposite reaction to stress. When I'm stressed I don't eat. The two times that I was my leanest was when I was unemployed and desperately looking for work. At one point I used to intentionally eat fast food just to try to keep the weight on so my suits fit properly. After the stress passes, the weight jumps back up.
