I love learning!
Felt really lousy yesterday and thought, "Oh, rats, I am really going to get sick, and I'll have to go to the doctor." (I hate going to the doctor...not doctors, just going there.)
So what did I do?
I comfort ate...like a child.
I read once that researchers discovered that when you put food in your mouth, you basically forget what is going on around you or in your head or in your body.
So it's a form of amnesia drug...but only when it's in your mouth and your chewing the food. It is a total, perfect distraction.
I can certainly attest to that yesterday.
Did I add 1 lb or 2 lbs? No, but I definitely wasn't in full Sparkpeople diet mode.
I am glad I learned this.
But, I'm even more glad that I feel good today.
(and I'm back on track and am enjoying every minute of it!)
It was worth it because I can empathize with people that are going through an illness or a bout of PMS or treatments of some order that their bodies feel miserable.
