Change Your Thoughts To Change Your Body

Thursday, January 03, 2013

I'm Cherala and I am an Emotional Overeater. I realize it's one day at a time and something I have to work on every day. I will feel the feelings that I have and use my words to share them even if I'm afraid. Yes, it might hurt but when I eat to stuff them down inside of me - I only hurt myself in the process. So why punish myself for something someone else said or did? And I will be vigilant to limit my interaction with negative people and negativity in general. I am not perfect. I make mistakes. I misstep. And I'm surprisingly okay with that.

  It's tough, but it definitely a process. Each time you make a choice other than turning to food, maybe you can give yourself a reward. And for the times that we do overeat, what helps me is too just simply move past it and not beat myself up. We are all on this road together. You can do this! emoticon emoticon

    this helped me a lot...


I eat out of I have to keep my brain engaged in things other than food....I love to cook so that can get me in trouble too...

but with the support and encouragement here on spark people I have been able to loose over 200 pounds and have kept most of it off...2013 I will get the 10 pounds off I gained in 2012....

I'm here if you ever need help....I don't have all the answers but I'm a good listener....i know this is not easy but it can be step at a time.....

    Progress, not perfection! I so agree, we need to change our negative thoughts so we can change our bodies.

    Good for you. I struggled with that myself. Once I change the way of thinking. It change everything. Keep up the good work,just think one day at the time. If we slip up, we just simple eat well the next thing we put into our mouth.
