Still Dealing with Emotional eating

Tuesday, May 04, 2010

I'm sure it never ends, I just need to control the monster. I'm doing a little better today, I went for pistachios instead of chocolate when I felt the stress getting to me. Which is a little better this time. I'm quite happy being more involved with Sparkpeople and certainly the advice is great. The weather here is finally warming up and looking forward to a good walk this afternoon or a bike ride on my new bike, or even workout at the gym. Since it is very beautiful outside, that's where you'll find me. So in a positive note, isn't it great to be alive. This blog is keeping items out of my mouth also. Namaste emoticon

    I weeded out the foods in my house that would get me into trouble. If I do want to eat I am not so likely to get into anything that would do a great deal of harm.

    I don't think the emotional eating urge ever really goes away, but we do get better with dealing with it. When the urge comes up, try chewing gum, or doing something physical. That sometimes works for me. If I can fight off that initial urge, I can usually by-pass it all together. The other trick is to not have the tempting stuff in the house. That way it isn't so easily assessable.

    Good luck!

    I don't think emotional eating never really ends either...or rather that urge to eat when the stress comes calling. I struggle every day with emotional eating. But we just have to learn how to take control over it. So now instead of giving in to chocolate I'll grab a piece of sugar free gum or grab some dumbells and start doing bicep curls, go for a short walk, or just do something to take my mind off the food. Most times it helps but I still have bad days of course. But I know that bad days happen and to just accept them and move on!
