Obtaining Control

Sunday, July 14, 2013

This week was a very hard week for me. A few things happened that led to emotional eating... or emotional binge. I felt hungry, I felt empty. If I took the time to explore my inner thoughts and feelings I would know that it wasn't that I was hungry but that I was lonely. I can only address it now because I had a pretty good day with people.

I have moved around a lot and I have amazing friends but none of them live near me. I do not have any close friends near me. It's lonely. It sucks. I told myself awhile ago that I need to just go to cafes and hang out when I have time but I have yet to do that.

I was so upset this weekend that I ate and ate and ate. I haven't sunk in those murky waters in a long time. I have had dark times before but I do always find my way out as I continuously ask God for peace. I am having a late dinner tonight with a friend but was hungry about 2 hours ago. I thought of many different things to eat but settle for yogurt with fruits and nuts. That was so much better than the other options.

It's time to work hard. I am going kick butt this week. Walking, stationary bike, pilates and yoga. I got this. And next time I am going to address the problem and work through it.

Have you considered giving time to volunteer groups or to joining church groups for people your age? Both are great ways of meeting new people - just waiting to make new friends, too!

God bless!

    Friday until today I went through a binge also. I notice this happens during the end of the week after I exercise and eat right. I think that would be a good idea for me too. Next time I am going to figure out why I wanna binge before I do it. Because I notice when I stop and think about it first, it puts me more in control than the last binge.
