DAY 55 FOOD IS THE CONSOLATION PRIZE. 100 DAYS OF WEIGHT LOSS CHALLENGE!

Tuesday, January 29, 2013

YOU MAY NOT HAVE STARTED OUT BEING AN EMOTIONAL EATER. FOOD BEGIN TO SHOW UP EVERY WHERE SOON IT DID NOT MATTER IF YOU WERE HUNGRY OR NOT YOU ATE ANYWAY.

ON BIRTHDAYS THE CANDLES WERE BLOWN OUT AND EVERYBODY HAD CHOCOLATE CAKE, ENCOURAGED TO CLEAN YOUR PLATE WHEN YOU WERE A CHILD., YOU FELL AND MOM CAME WITH A COOKIE TO HELP THE BOO BOO AND THE PAIN MAGICALLY STOP! LOL!

EATING IS ONE OF THE MOST COMMON WAYS PEOPLE COPE WITH PROBLEMS AND STRUGGLES IN LIFE. YOU LEARNED THAT WHENEVER YOU HAVE A TOUGH TIME, FOOD ALWAYS MAKES YOU FEEL BETTER.

THE LINK BETWEEN FOOD AND EMOTIONS...
IF YOU ALWAYS REACH FOR SOMETHING TO EAT WHEN YOU DON'T LIKE HOW YOU FEEL. YOU'LL CREATE A LINK BETWEEN FOOD AND YOUR EMOTIONAL NEEDS. FOR A WHILE IT SEEMS TO WORK BUT AT SOME POINT OVER EATING NUMBS YOUR FEELINGS. YOU CAN STOP NOTICING WHAT IS MISSING IN YOUR LIFE. FOOD PROVIDES A SOCIALLY ACCEPTABLE WAY TO ESCAPE FROM REALITY.

FOOD AS THE CONSOLATION PRIZE. ITS BETTER THAT NOTHING BUT NOT AS GOOD AS BEING LOVED, APPRECIATED OR COMFORTED.

WHAT YOU ACTUALLY WANT. DAYS GO BY WHERE YOU'D GIVE ANYTHING FOR SOMEONE TO HOLD YOU AND OFFER A ENCOURAGING WORD. YOU WANT SOMEBODY TO CARE THAT YOUR CAR HAS BROKEN DOWN 4 TIMES THIS MONTH, YOU WISH LIFE WERE DIFFERENT --MORE MONEY, MORE LOVE OR MORE FUN. WHEN YOU DON'T GET THESE THINGS ITS EASY TO LOOK FOR FOOD TO TAKE ITS PLACE. BEFORE REACHING FOR THAT BAG OF CHIPS---AND YOU KNOW YOU ARE NOT HUNGRY. ASK YOURSELF "WHAT DO YOU REALLY NEED OR WANT"? Think ABOUT HOW YOU ADDRESS YOUR NEEDS IN SOME OTHER WAYS INSTEAD OF EXPECTING FOOD TO TAKE CARE OF
