I was good until 2 p.m.
2 p.m. seems to be my weakness.
If I could only get from 2 until 7 without sticking something in my mouth!!!
I even had a banana, which I promptly ate to get through it and then? It seemed I had given myself permission to go ahead.

The problem is I am usually not even really hungry but want to keep my mouth busy.
I think I need to try the stress ball tomorrow and keep the hands busy. I did touch the ball today, but my weak hands didn't know what to do with it. In other words, I am going to have to work up to it.

Why is the emotional connection to food addiction such a difficult cycle to break?

    I have to say that's the same time I want to reach for food it snack time at the daycare...which doesn't help at all.
Maybe the stress ball would work as well.

I know EXACTLY how you are feeling. I am trying to over-come this with you. I have found that asking for help and the power of prayer are working miracles on me. I call friends now, or they call me. We chat, and I forget all about the food. I am dealing with my emotions as well and coming to realizations that I didn't like me, so I am trying so hard to fix the emotional me by dealing with what's in there. Not sure this will help, but I am thinking of you and praying that you will find what works from you between those times and you'll be able to find peace with food.

    I have that issue with food as well. I feel like once I've eaten one thing out of habit, I just keep going. It drives me crazy. I wish there was an easy way to break the food habit.. but it's hard to break a habit when we have no choice but to eat every day. We can't quit eating fully, so I think there will always be the extra temptation. Hope you find a way to get around it!
