I always dismissed the idea of my own eating being emotional....I eat because I'm hungry and because stuff tastes good. But lately, I have been doing some thinking (after picking up a little book called "50 Ways to comfort Yourself Without Food") about when I eat and why. And I am suddenly realizing just how much emotional eating I actually do.
In the same vein, I have done several art shows in the past few weeks and with the excitement of presenting (and selling!
) my jewelry to the world....I forgot all about food. In fact, I forgot all about my weight issues all together. It was wonderful to enjoy myself so thoroughly and forget to be self conscious.
Emotional eating covers many more emotions than I realized.
