The longer I go in this process, the more I can point out when I'm heading to the kitchen because of my stress or insecurity about a situation. I keep a journal tucked away next to my favorite chair in the house, and when I start to feel those things boiling up in me, I have told myself "this is a journal issue" and worked to write things that I am feeling down. Once I've written it out, I often feel better and that response of turning to food has subsided.
I'm not 100% perfect about it, but I have gotten better at putting my emotions in a healthier spot. I also realize that keeping moving is another way to work out the nervous energy whether it be going out for a walk or getting into a cleaning project in the house.
You had a bad day, don't give up!! This is a learning process that each individual works through in their journey.
