Emotional Eating - it doesn't solve anything

Thursday, January 10, 2013

I found myself a little emotional yesterday, thrown of kilter and out of my day to day life. My brain's immediate reaction was to by a treat for myself at the store when I was out. It was the first time I even thought about doing that in close to two weeks now. As soon as I thought it I realized my brain was trying to compensate for the stress that I was feeling. I recognized these deceiving tricks, realized that no chocolate was going to solve any problems and drove right by the store.

I was quite proud of myself for telling my cravings to go to hell.

    So very true - lots of us struggle with emotional eating, and it's very difficult to eliminate it. I find that the best thing for me is to divert myself by doing some exercise, having a bath, or working on one of my hobbies.

    Yay for not giving in to food, when you were stressed. I think a lot of us r here because we are emotional eaters. So to catch yourself before going through with it, is a HUGE step forward!
