I know what you mean about the TV. I feel the part of the person that is sad and have to eat for them. I do this a lot. I got away from it for a while, but doing this with you has helped me so much! You are doing so awesome! Sometimes I have to just shut the TV off and try to count sheep, or meditate and pray. 232 days ago
I've started doing this actually! If I suddenly want to eat I tell myself that the desire came on quickly and determine that it has to be from an emotional cause...something that triggered it. Then I try to determine what triggered the desire. I have found sometimes it's just that something got on my nerves or was irritating to me and sometimes it's caused by something on TV...isn't that strange! I've found that life's everyday little irratations make me want to eat! 232 days ago
