I reckon I've known I'm an emotional eater. One of those things I had sort of ignored, even when I was doing it. Especially when I was doing it.
Since I've come back to Spark though and have been so determined to make a true lifestyle change, I've really noticed how much I used to rely on eating to comfort me through emotional times. When I'm upset or angry or stressed, I want to stuff myself SO bad. Like, I don't care, I'm so upset, I NEED this.
But I haven't done it-- they say awareness is the first step, and that's where I am right now. Acutely aware.
I reckon I need to read some articles on emotional eating and learn some new ways to deal with my emotions. I want to have the tools available to use when the next emotional crisis hits. Because I know it will.
