Yesterday I had an ah-ha moment. I had some things happen at work that really got me upset and a mix of emotion - angry, hurt, etc. and after work I went to the grocery store to pick up some fish for dinner (Lent). While I was there the incident from work still had me stewing and I found my mind doing some kind of junkie talk on its own. It was trying to convince me that if I ate some junk, chocolate or sugar that I would feel better about the whole thing! People must have thought I was crazy as I was kind of mumbling to myself as I was walking through the parking lot to my car. When I got in and started to drive home I realized that it I was having and emotional eating attack! I talked myself out of it and told myself that the problem and feelings related to it would still be there after I ate crap and I would probably feel even worse afterwards. It helped! I managed to overcome that train of thought and patted myself on the back as I went to bed knowing I was stronger!
