Three things really push me over the edge to want to eat emotionally. One is being overtired, two is being in a lot of pain and three is feeling a lack of support and betrayal.
I try to sleep, exercise or watch a movie when I am in pain or too tired. My husband also tries to comfort me when I am in this state to avoid me binging. Since I have been with my husband I have gotten away from the lack of support and betrayal done by my family.
When you are already feeling awful, it is not easy to resist binging on food but it can be done. I used to be so emotionally weak that I would damage myself in that fashion. I just didn't care about myself and I wasn't using any strength to resist. My vision of reality was not present because I was in so much pain.
Since meeting my husband, I am living a very nice life. Although I have a lot of responsibility, I am pampered.
I feel very happy to have a support when I am in weak moments, for that I am getting emotionally stronger. I am able to say no to food and offers from family.
When I used to slip up and eat when I felt tired, in pain or feeling a lack of support, I used to continue to eat the rest of the day or two maybe. The quicker you turn your bad behavior around, the better it will be for your health. If you slip up, don't continue to eat because of it. It is so hard to lose weight that you shouldn't add insult to injury.
We all make mistakes, there will be weak moments, but the quicker we pull away to healthy living and reality, the better.
We have to try to occupy ourselves with something other than food in those weak moments.
